Seven years after the launch of the GMT900-based model, we have a new 2015 GMC Yukon. Not just a new Yukon, but a new 2015 Yukon XL, and 2015 Yukon Denali flagship. The SUV is all changed the ground up, utilizing the new K2XX body-on-frame platform introduced by the 2014 GMC Sierra. However, the looks of the Sierra don’t find their way into the new Yukon family, as their contemporary designs are unique and share no body panels.
Like the 2015 Tahoe and 2015 Suburban, the all-new 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are more refined than ever before, and offer features like power fold-flat rear seats, available magnetic ride control, greatly increased safety equipment, the latest infotainment technology with GMC IntelliLink, and expected increases in fuel economy to go with the newfound power from the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 L83.
Meanwhile, the Yukon and Yukon XL Denali models feature more exclusive content. A 420 horsepower, 460 pound-foot 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 L86 is made available, as are standard 20-inch wheels, and a more distinguished exterior complete with a signature honeycomb grille. Look for the 2015 GMC Yukon family to make it into dealers by the first quarter of 2014.
