2014 NAIAS: 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL

     As the slightly more upscale brothers to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, the all-new 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL also get the excellent new direct-injection V8 engines and chassis improvements to ride and handling, but they do maintain a couple of exclusives worth noting. The biggest of which is the beautiful and luxurious Denali trim which splits the difference between the lesser trucks and the full zoot Cadillac Escalade. With the additional luxuries and upscale materials of the Denali package also comes the 6.2-liter V8 making 420 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque–both segment leading.

This engine featured the Active Fuel Management system that could cut power to 4-cylinders while under light load to reduce fuel consumption. This V8-V4 mode earned this fullsize SUV an impressive 21-mpg EPA highway rating.
