Yukon Towing Safety Technology


The 2019 GMC Yukon has the technology to help keep you safe while towing in the Canton area:

    • Get complete control of your trailer’s brakes right at your fingertips with the available Trailer Brake Controller.
    • Hill Start Assist holds the brakes immediately, so you get more 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.
