Hot on the heels of the 2014 Sierra remodel come the newest from the GMC design camp is the 2014 GMC Yukon, 2014 GMC Yukon XL and 2014 Yukon Denali. Let me tell you, just like the 2014 Sierra, the 2015 Yukon is impressive.
There are no sacrifices in the motivation department, the 2015 GMC Yukon are fitted with the EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 as standard. Thanks to direct injection and a host of other improvements, the new-generation small-block V8 is substantially more powerful, generating a projected 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. Those figures compare with 320 hp and 335 lb-ft of torque for the outgoing SUVs’ 5.3-liter V8.
For the 6.2-liter V8 — at first available only for the up-market 2015 GMC Yukon Denali — the numbers are a strapping 420 hp (17 hp better than before) and 460 lb-ft of torque compared to the previous 6.2-liter’s 417 lb-ft. [source: edmunds.com]
The whole vehicle is much more streamlined. Make no mistake, the 2014 Yukon is sleek, athletic and bold. One of the unique features is the inlaid doors which are cut under the roof line. This provides two very important functions. First, it really adds to the overall streamlined look of the the new Yukon. The other benefit is the added sound baffling. The triple sealed doors provide an even quieter ride.
Now, not necessarily one of the things that GMC wants to really brag about, but it is one that they have certainly have made considerable improvements on and that’s the popularity of GMC with thieves. In order to curb this dubious distinction, multiple anti-theft deterrents have been put into place, to curb any theft. Of course, they can’t keep you from keeping your purse, or laptop in plain sight on your front seat …that’s on you.
