Yukon Towing Safety Technology

The new GMC Yukon has the technology that allows you to remain safe while towing your items in the North Pole area:

  • Have control of your trailer’s brakes with the available trailer brake controller.
  • Hill Start Assist immediately holds the brakes, so you have time to switch from the brake to the accelerator when needed under certain conditions.
  • Trailer Sway Control keeps your new Yukon and trailer heading in the same direction. This system uses StabiliTrak sensors that will detect when your trailer is swaying.
