Yukon Towing Safety Features

Stay safe and sound on the Murray roads, so you can focus on navigating towing and hauling with these features:

  • Trailer Brake Control – Access your trailer’s braking system with the controls located behind the steering wheel. 
  • Hill Start Assist – Switch from the brake to the accelerator in time. If you’re towing on a slope, Hill Start Assist will hold the brakes on your behalf, so you won’t slide back. 
  • Trailer Sway Control – Avoid trailer sway with the StabiliTrak sensors detecting any swaying motions.
