About GMC Yukon

Buyers’ tastes in large SUVs have changed over the years, and the GMC Yukon has changed with them. Introduced in the early ’90s, the full-size Yukon sport-utility has gone from being a two-door 4×4 with a maximum passenger capacity of six to a four-door SUV with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive and seating for up to nine. Early Yukons were fairly basic on the inside, but later models offer numerous amenities, particularly the leather-lined Yukon Denali model.

Road manners have improved greatly over the years, as it became apparent to GMC that Yukon buyers spend most of their time on pavement.

Some things haven’t changed, though. The Yukon has always been a spacious vehicle that balances comfortable passenger accommodations with above-average cargo room. In addition, it has always used body-on-frame construction, providing it with a stout foundation for towing.

A succession of strong V8s has resulted in impressive trailer ratings over the years, as well as ample acceleration in just about any situation. Now more refined than ever before, the GMC Yukon is one of the better full-size SUVs on the market for families who require a roomy, powerful vehicle that doesn’t skimp on utility.

Current GMC Yukon

The GMC Yukon is a full-size SUV that rides on a stiff, fully boxed frame. The ride is smooth and quiet, while handling is reasonably secure for a 5,500-pound vehicle. Inside, the dash has a sleek, modern design, and materials are attractive and mostly of good quality.

Numerous seating configurations can accommodate anywhere from five to nine passengers, depending on the trim level and options you select.

The basic trim structure includes SLE, SLT and Denali models, though numerous package options allow for considerable variation within the lower trim levels. Yukon SLE models come with all the essentials, including tri-zone air-conditioning, a CD player and full power accessories, while the SLT should be your pick if you’re looking for extras like leather upholstery and automatic climate control. Buyers can choose either 2WD or 4WD on both the SLE and SLT, which come standard with a 320-horsepower 5.3-liter V8.

The upper-crust Yukon Denali comes with a full load of amenities as well as a larger 6.2-liter V8 good for an impressive 403 hp — same as the Cadillac Escalade.

In reviews, we’ve been impressed by the Yukon’s combination of utility and comfort, especially given its humble pickup-truck underpinnings. However, its hefty curb weight takes a toll on fuel economy, acceleration, braking and handling, particularly under the burden of heavier passenger/cargo loads. Additionally, its third-row seat lacks a fold-flat feature and is difficult to remove — as such, a Toyota Sequoia or big crossover like GMC’s Acadia is better for carrying passengers.

But if you need the Yukon’s outsized towing and hauling capabilities, it’s one of the best of its breed.

Used GMC Yukon Models

The current third-generation Yukon debuted for 2007. Initially, 2WD Yukons came standard with a 290-hp, 4.8-liter V8 (discontinued for 2010) and a four-speed automatic was mandatory for all but the 6.2-liter engine, which then made 380 hp and came with a six-speed transmission. For ’09, the six-speed auto became standard on the 5.3-liter V8 and the 6.2-liter V8 reached its current output.

There was also an XFE package that year, which increased fuel economy for the 5.3-liter by about 1 mpg. Prior to 2009, the third-row seat was not standard and Bluetooth was unavailable, while no Yukon came with front side airbags until 2010.

The second-generation GMC Yukon was sold from 2000-’06. For the Yukon Denali, it’s 2001-’06, as the 2000 model year was a carryover of the previous design. This generation of the Yukon was notable for its potent V8s, cushy interior accommodations, and pleasant ride and handling dynamics. It was, in fact, one of our favorite full-size SUVs and earned an Editors’ Most Wanted distinction on multiple occasions.

Weak points included numb steering, low-grade interior materials and inconsistent build quality. Front-seat side airbags were available throughout this generation, while stability control was available from 2003 on up.

The first-generation GMC Yukon debuted in 1992 as a replacement for the full-size GMC Jimmy, which had been on sale since 1970. Two-door Yukons were sold from ’92-’97 with four-wheel drive only. The four-door Yukon arrived to stay in 1995 and offered a choice of 2WD or 4WD; the original Denali was available in ’99 and 2000 with 4WD only. If you’re considering a first-gen Yukon purchase, 1996-’99 models are your best bet. The standard 5.7-liter V8 was heavily revised in ’96, and the result was significantly more horsepower and torque.

First-gen Denalis also had this engine. Yukons of this era were comfortable and reasonably powerful, but not especially refined. Weak brakes and cheap interior materials were the major downsides.

GMC’s Denali offerings are going great guns

The Denali trim that GMC uses to denote its top-of-the-line vehicles was introduced back in 1999, partly as a way to challenge the recently introduced Lincoln Navigator. Fifteen years later, and with GMC the tenth-largest US automotive brand by itself Denali has become a sub-brand that keeps the cash registers ringing at the Renaissance Center HQ. While GMC increased sales by 9 percent in 2013, reports that that Denali sales rose by 20 percent.

GM tells NHTSA pickup truck electronic glitch is ‘inconsequential’

General Motors has been enduring some serious problems with recalls recently, and it is hoping to avoid launching another major safety campaign. 200,921 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups are under the microscope due to a rare problem with their instruments, an issue GM calls calls inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. The Detroit-based automaker believes that the glitch is so minor that it has filed a petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asking the government safety watchdog for permission to pass on recalling the vehicles.

GM’s fullsize SUVs boost highway mileage by nearly 10 percent

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 10:39:00 EST

We met the redesigned 2015 versions of the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL at the 2013 LA Auto Show. Improved gas mileage numbers have been announced to go along with the improved exteriors and interiors, with city mileage improving by seven percent and highway mileage going up by nearly ten percent; you’ll now get 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 on the highway.

Roadkill pits every project car against each other

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 19:49:00 EST

The guys behind Motor Trend’s monthly Roadkill series have collected nine of their favorite project cars from their videos and pitted them against each other in a battle royale to determine a winner. It’s 44 minutes long, but it’s completely worth the investment of time.

The cars run the gamut from a 1973 Chevrolet Ramp Truck, a 1975 AMC Pacer and a legitimately impressive 1967 Chevy Camaro, and they are pitted against each other to see which is the fastest around an autocross course. The drivers include Roadkill’s two hosts and Motor Trend’s Johnny Lieberman and Carlos Lago. It’s reminiscent of the best episodes of Top Gear and worth a watch.

So it’s the weekend — the perfect time to relax. Grab your preferred beverage, get comfortable and enjoy 44 minutes of some seriously ratty but utterly cool project cars as they are throttled within an inch of their lives (or past it). Scroll down to check out the video.

GM readying aluminum-body fullsize pickups

Wed, 19 Feb 2014 09:57:00 EST

Ford’s extensive use of aluminum in its 2015 F-150 is a big deal. A really big deal. Big enough, in fact, that General Motors is reportedly changing its fullsize pickup strategy.

According to The Wall Street Journal, The General has locked in partnerships with Alcoa Inc. and Novelis Inc. — companies that will supply aluminum for the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks.

Ford’s introduction of the 2015 F-150 pickup truck was a game changer, and it’s the first, not the last, conversion of this type, Novelis spokesperson Charles Belbin told the Journal. The switch to aluminum has allowed Ford to shave roughly 700 pounds off its fullsize truck’s curb weight. And while official mileage ratings have not been announced, the weight loss should go a long way for improving efficiency, especially when combined other efficiency-minded improvements including better aerodynamics and new, turbocharged V6 engines.

Of course, aluminum-bodied cars are nothing new. But extensive use of aluminum in a major, best-selling product like the Ford F-150 is expected to kick off widespread use of this weight-saving material as availability rises and cost decreases. The WSJ reports that GM had originally explored the idea of moving to aluminum pickups back in 2008, but abandoned the idea due to cost concerns amid economic woes.

Detroit 3 to implement delayed unified towing standards for 2015

Mon, 10 Feb 2014 18:29:00 EST

Car buyers have a responsibility to be well-informed consumers. That’s not always a very simple task, but some guidelines are self-evident. If you live in a very snowy climate, you generally know a Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Camaro might not be as viable a vehicle choice as an all-wheel drive Explorer or Traverse, for example. If you want a fuel-efficient car, it’s generally a good idea to know the difference between a diesel and a hybrid. But what if it’s kind of tough to be an informed consumer?

What if the information you need is more difficult to come by, or worse, based on different standards for each vehicle? Well, in that case, you might be a truck shopper.

For years, customers of light-duty pickups have had to suffer through different ratings of towing capacities for each brand. For 2015 model year trucks, though, that will no longer be a problem. According to Automotive News, General Motors, Ford and Chrysler Group have announced that starting with next year’s models, a common standard will be used to measure towing capacity.

The Detroit Three will join Toyota, which adopted the Society of Automotive Engineers’ so-called SAE J2807 standards way back in 2011.

The standard was originally supposed to be in place for MY2013, but concerns that it would lower the overall stated capacity for trucks led Detroit automakers to pass. Ford originally passed, claiming it’d wait until its new F-150 was launched to adopt the new standards, leading GM and Ram to follow suit. Nissan, meanwhile, has said it will adopt the new standards as its vehicles are updated, meaning the company’s next-generation Titan should adhere to the same tow ratings as its competitors.

GMC to get own model not shared with Chevy?

Mon, 20 Jan 2014 18:58:00 EST

For years, GMC has existed as a brand without a single unique product, reconstituting Chevrolet trucks, SUVs and crossovers with more frosting in exchange for a few extra dollars. The Sierra is a Silverado, the Acadia a Traverse, and the Terrain an Equinox, although admittedly the latter pair are visually differentiated to a significant degree.

GMC could be set to expand beyond its Chevy-based roots, though. During last week’s Detroit Auto Show press days, GM’s product boss Mark Reuss was asked whether there’d ever be a GMC that wasn’t taken from Chevy. Oh, yes, you will, Reuss told the media. The health of GMC is astonishingly good from a consideration standpoint. Reuss wouldn’t elaborate on what the model could be, although we’re quite happy to make some guesses.

GMC has its bases fairly well covered, with a mid-size and full-size crossover, as well as a mid-size, full-size and HD pickup. We doubt GMC will be building a family sedan, sports car, or hatchback, so really, the only place we can see the brand going is into a smaller crossover.

Automotive News points out that the most recent small GMC showcar, the 2010 Granite concept (shown above), won’t see production according to General Motors. That vehicle likely would have rode on GM’s compact vehicle architecture, known internally as Gamma II, which underpins the Chevy Spark and Sonic, as well as the Buick Encore (and its overseas Opel/Vauxhall/Chevy counterparts).

2015 GMC Canyon gets the party started [w/video]

Sun, 12 Jan 2014 18:45:00 EST

The 2014 Detroit Auto Show press days officially kick off tomorrow, but the night before all the madness commences, General Motors drove its new 2015 GMC Canyon pickup truck out for all to see. To refresh your memory, the Canyon is GMC’s new midsize pickup — essentially a re-skinned version of the Chevrolet Colorado that debuted at the LA Auto Show in November.

Many of us at Autoblog prefer the look of the larger GMC Sierra to that of its Chevy Silverado kin, and we’re having similar feelings about the new Canyon, especially after seeing it in person. It’s sort of a pint-sized version of the Sierra, and it looks great. Clean lines are found throughout, and the Canyon’s styling is decidedly premium.

At launch, the Canyon will be offered with the same engines as the Colorado — a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 193 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque on the base end, and a larger 3.6-liter V6 with 302 hp and 270 lb-ft as an option. The Colorado’s 2.8-liter diesel inline four-cylinder will be available after launch. Both two- and four-wheel drive configurations will be available, depending on the model.

Ford may not offer the Ranger in America anymore, nor Dodge (or Ram) its Dakota. But General Motors — not unlike Toyota with its Tacoma and Nissan with the Frontier — isn’t about to give up on the midsize pickup market. Less than two months ago, it revealed the new Chevrolet Colorado, and now it’s following up with its mechanical twin, the 2015 GMC Canyon.

Launched today ahead of its reveal at the Detroit Auto Show, the Canyon slots into the GMC lineup (and differentiates itself from its Chevrolet twin) with styling that closely apes the larger GMC Sierra 1500 and Sierra HD, only a size or two smaller. Oh, there are visual differences, like a subtly different grille treatment and lower fascia, but it still maintains its big brother’s square-jawed good looks and rectilinear flared fenders.

Two aluminum-block engines with direct injection and variable valve timing are available: a 2.5-liter inline-four comes standard with 193 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, and a 3.6-liter V6 is available with 302 hp and 270 lb-ft. Buyers will also be able to choose between three bodystyle configurations, three trim levels and either two- or four-wheel drive. A six-speed automatic transmits the power to the road, but a six-speed manual is available on the base model with the 2.5 and 2WD, and there’s an All Terrain package available on SLE models.

A diesel is expected later.

370,000 new Silverado and Sierra pickups recalled over fire risk

General Motors announced late Friday that it will recall around 370,000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra fullsize pickups from the 2014 model year over a possible fire risk. The recall covers select 4.3-liter V6 and 5.3-liter V8 models, which can evidently suffer engine compartment fires due to the overheating of exhaust components. GM notes that the fire issue may be preceded by a check engine light and an engine power reduced message on the driver information display.

Thus far, GM is aware of eight fires stemming from this problem (although only three of those incidents affected customer-owned vehicles), and all of the fires were reported in areas with very cold weather. GM is urging owners to not leave their vehicles unintended while idling. No injuries have resulted from the fires in question.

The Detroit-based automaker has pledged to start mailing out recall letters on January 16. The fix, which involves software reprogramming, is estimated to be a 20-minute repair, and will be made free of charge.
