The 2016 Yukon XL Denali's brake rotors use GM-exclusive DuralifeTM corrosion protection.

An advanced vehicle security system is available for Yukon XL Denali 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 wheel or vehicle theft
