Full-size SUVs have their pros – seating, versatility, cargo space. Fuel economy, however, is generally not one of the features automakers highlight…until now. Both Chevrolet’s and GMC’s full-size SUV models now boast increased highway fuel efficiency by close to 10 percent for the 2015 model year.
The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are two-wheel drive utility vehicles equipped with a standard 5.3-liter engine that earns 23 mpg on the highway. Cruising through city streets, the SUVs get 16 miles per gallon, a seven percent increase over the previous model year.
The 2015 Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali vehicles are equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine. Even with the segment’s best power and handling, these vehicles deliver 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
