The 2017 Yukon full-size SUV models at Buick GMC of North Miami offer a full suite of driver alert and active safety technologies that rely on a sophisticated network of cameras, radar and ultrasonic sensors to help prepare owners in Miami, Florida for the unexpected. For added peace of mind, GMC Yukon features 7 standard airbags [1] from the front to third rows, along with StabiliTrak® technology that will help you maintain control in even the most adverse South Florida driving conditions. New Yukon SLT models pair intelligent technologies with driver-centric engineering to help keep you safer than ever on the Miami roadways. Safety features on the SLT include Forward Collision Alert with Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Front and Rear Park Assist, Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert [2], Lane Keep Assist [2], Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Available Adaptive Cruise Control and much more.

Yukon’s innovative Safety Alert Seat vibrates to alert you to potential hazards. When one of the Driver Alert technologies (for example, Rear Cross Traffic Alert) triggers an alert, the Safety Alert Seat vibrates on the left or right bolster, depending on the direction of the potential hazard. 2017 GMC Yukon models also have a built-in Teen Driver system that encourages safe driving habits for new drivers. It automatically activates certain safety systems and allows parents to set limits on other features. A Report Card provides information on driving behavior to help parents in Miami, Florida continue to coach their teens.

GMC engineers took things to an entirely different level when it comes to the 2017 Yukon, and these all-new full-size SUV models are available with an advanced vehicle security system that includes glass-breakage sensors located in the two rear quarter-panel windows and the liftgate, ultrasonic motion detectors located in the overhead console, an inclination sensor located in the overhead console that trips an alarm before a tire leaves the ground, helping to prevent the vehicle from being illegally towed, an alarm that activates only when it is fully armed using the vehicle’s remote key fob lock button or the power lock switch, a high-pitched siren that sounds completely different from the vehicle horn, and plenty more. It’s safe to say that the new 2017 Yukon lineup at Buick GMC of North Miami is by far the safest and most secure we’ve ever produced.

More Capable than Ever
2017 GMC Yukon models deliver the performance Miami drivers demand to go wherever they want and trailer what they want with uncompromising control and confidence. This is due in no small part to Yukon’s EcoTec3 V-8 engine that combines innovative new technologies with more than 50 years of GM small-block experience. The EcoTec3 V-8 engine of the 2017 GMC Yukon has been optimized to deliver impressive amounts of horsepower, torque and fuel economy [3]. Features of these full-size SUV engines include an impressive 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, best-in-class fuel economy at 16 city/23 highway mpg [3], advanced Direct Injection for quieter vehicle operation and improved efficiency and so much more.

GMC Yukon’s brake rotors utilize GM-exclusive DURALIFE™ corrosion protection, a patented process that relies on ferritic nitro-carburizing (FNC) to harden rotor surfaces for a dramatic reduction in rust and corrosion. The results are less steering shudder when applying the brakes and a rotor lifespan of up to twice that of conventional brake rotors! Yukon models have also been engineered to deliver the most refined, solid and smoothest drive yet. The result is more secure handling, improved responsiveness and a quiet cabin that will amaze even the most cynical Miami, Florida commuter. Hydraulic engine mounts allow for improved isolation and damping while electric power steering provides greater fuel efficiency and overall vehicle handling. We thought of everything when creating the new 2017 GMC Yukon, so come by and see for yourself everything these innovative full-size SUV models have to offer.

[1] Always use safety belts and the correct child restraints for your child’s age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with air bags and the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. Air bag inflation can cause severe injury or death to anyone too close to the bag when it deploys. Be sure every occupant is properly restrained. See the Owner’s Manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information.

[2] Before making a lane change, always check the Side Blind Zone Alert display, check the side and inside rearview mirrors, look over your shoulder for vehicles and hazards, and start the turn signal.
