2014 Yukon Denali

Considering a 2014 Yukon Denali with the 6.2l engine to pull my 27' International. Anyone out there have experience with Denali as a tow vehicle?

No experience with the Yukon Denali, but from the specs you should be fine IMO. The max towing weight specs at 8300 lbs (2WD), your trailer weight 5800 lbs empty. Max payload (2WD) is 1604 lbs, your tongue weight 770 lbs empty. Tons of power/torque. I see no problems!

Kingfisher, what's your gas mileage when towing?

We run a 2010 Yukon Denali short wheelbase 4WD. Around 11mpg towing. Pulls pretty strong. The ride its more truck-like than car-like. The transmission temp runs near and often over 200 degrees. We wish it had a better transmission cooler and might add one.

We have an 07 6.0 Yukon, 2500, 4.10 diff. It pulls alright but is hard on the fuel, about 9 to 11 depending the terrain and wind. I looked seriously at trading for a Denali to get the 6.2 with 6 speed trans. The difference would not have justified the cost of trading at this time. I think you will be alright with the Denali, but there are a lot of other options. If I was looking for a tow vehicle, as much as I like the closed vehicle with 6 passenger seats, no, I would not buy the Yukon 6.0 again nor a Denali.

2014 Yukon Denali

Thanks. I know there are better options, especially if one considers a pickup. However, I want to stay with a large SUV. From what I have been able to determine, the Denali, despite its price and gas mileage may be my best option.

Wanting a 3/4 ton, 4 wheel drive SUV with comfortable seating for 6 passengers is what got me into the Yukon XL. It's not a bad way to go, there are tradeoffs with any type of vehicle. As to the 11 mpg towing, I think that might be fairly accurate for the Yukons or Suburbans. In hanging out with other SUVers, I do find that some tend to exaggerate the towing abilities and fuel consumption of their vehicles.

Would the 22 inch wheels be fine for towing? I'd like to switch my 20 inch wheels for a set of 22 GM accessory wheels but am concerned about performance. Anyone running 22's on their Tahoe's or Yukon's?

Seems like there wouldn't be much difference in towing with 20's or 22's.
I've only ever towed a travel trailer with 20's.

Generally, there will be a sticker/plate in the door jam indicating if equipment on that vehicle reduces payload capacity.

Usually that means wheels. On my truck, the 20" aluminum wheels and the tires for them reduced the payload by several hundred pounds. I'd expect the same for 22" wheels with low profile tires. It's not something you'll see in an owner's manual, but look for the info plate in the door jamb.
