Car companies are constantly working hard to make their models more efficient, while at the same time keeping the features and capabilities drivers love. General Motors was able to do this with the full-size, luxurious GMC Yukon Denali.
More Efficient 2015 Yukon Denali
With a new eight-speed transmission, we will get a more efficient 2015 Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali. Two-wheel-drive models of the Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali now have an EPA-estimated highway mileage of 22 mpg. The EPA rating for the four-wheel drive Yukon Denali rises to 15 mpg in the city.
The new Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission is paired with the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8. With this combination, the Yukon Denali delivers a segment-leading 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Even with improved efficiency, the Yukon Denali doesn’t lose any of its capabilities. Tow ratings for both the Yukon Denali (8,400 pounds) and Yukon XL Denali (8,100) are unchanged.
