2015 GMC Yukon
Bold styling and advanced technologies, including new safety and security technologies, support greater capability, while a more comprehensive list of standard features and enhanced infotainment options are designed to broaden the appeal of one of the most popular full-size SUV lineups.
All-new exterior and interior designs advance GMC’s professional grade aesthetic with elements designed to be beautiful and functional. The exterior is sleeker and more aerodynamic, enhancing efficiency on the highway and contributing to the new 2015 Yukon’s quiet ride. The 2015 Yukon’s precisely crafted interior includes soft-touch instrument panel, console and door panel materials with live stitching and purposeful use of ambient lighting in functional areas, including first- and second-row foot wells and the center console.
Yukon models, and there are several—Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali—have a standard Bose sound system, seats with dual-firmness foam and an ambient air vent designed to enhance comfort for front-seat passengers. The 2015 Yukon delivers greater capability and greater refinement through new and enhanced chassis and suspension systems. A fully boxed frame—composed of more than 75 percent high-strength steel—supports a quiet and controlled ride. New shear-style body mounts attached to the frame significantly improve stiffness and contribute to the smooth ride.
The Yukon is more powerful and efficient than before, thanks to the new EcoTec3 engine. A 355-horsepower, 5.3L V-8 features direct injection, cylinder deactivation, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system, designed to make the most of power, torque and efficiency across a broad range of operating conditions.
Base model estimated miles per gallon: 16/23. Estimated starting price: $46,335.
