Hybrid-specific 4-wheel antilock, 4-wheel disc brakes

Large, high-capacity 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS are engineered in every Yukon Hybrid for confident stops, time after time. For extra assistance, the system offers brake assist that can sense a sudden stop and apply full-pedal pressure to help stop or slow your Yukon Denali as quickly as possible.

During normal stops, regenerative braking uses the motors in the hybrid transmission as generators to decelerate the vehicle by applying resistance in the motors rather than brake friction. At the same time, the motors are capturing that energy as electricity in the 300-volt battery pack, electricity that is available for the next acceleration cycle.
