2015 GMC Yukon Buyer's Guide

The GMC Yukon is one of the last traditional body-on-frame SUVs. The model was just redesigned this year, and while the exterior remains similar to older models (though with a few tweaks that make it look more modern), the interior is lightyears ahead of previous generations (thought still not quite as nice as you might expect considering the asking price). The ride is quite firm, especially on Denali versions with their magnetic ride control. The Denali’s 6.2 liter V8 engine and 8-speed automatic make the Yukon surprisingly quick, despite its 5,746 lb curb weight, and is our powertrain of choice, but don’t expect the Yukon to handle as well as it accelerates. If you need even more interior room, the longer wheelbase Yukon XL is available.

What makes it move?

Regular GMC Yukons are powered by an aluminum block 5.3 liter EcoTec3 V8. The normally aspirated overhead valve engine is equipped with some modern technology like Active Fuel Management, direct injection, and variable valve timing to help it produce 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic that sends power to either the rear-wheels, or all 4 wheels, depending on the chosen options.

Denali versions of the Yukon receive a 6.2 liter EcoTec3 V8 that puts out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine has the same Active Fuel Management, direct injection, and variable valve timing as the 5.3 liter engine, but is mated to a very good 8-speed automatic transmission, also with the option of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive.

Why buy the 2015 GMC Yukon?

If you need to carry nine people while towing significantly more than you could with a minivan, the Yukon is one of your best (and only) choices. Towing capacity for models powered by the 5.3 liter engine with the HD Trailering Package is an impressive 8,200 lbs, thanks to its truck-like design and fully-boxed frame (the Yukon is basically a GMC Sierra without a bed). Denali models with the larger engine are limited to 8,100 lbs, but do a much better job pulling that weight. Fuel economy is relatively decent considering the SUV’s capabilities, size, and particularly heft. Available active safety features include Front and Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a Rear Vision Camera, a Safety Alert Seat, and Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert. OnStar with 4G LTE and Automatic Crash Response is standard.
