What's New for 2015

The 2015 GMC Yukon is fully redesigned.


The 2015 GMC Yukon is fully redesigned.

You'd think the end times might be near for big full-size SUVs like the 2015 GMC Yukon, but you'd be wrong. For drivers who need room for big families and the ability to haul big toys, the Yukon is still a premier alpha SUV.

For 2015, GMC has fully redesigned the Yukon. The big SUV will still ride on a traditional body-on-frame architecture, based around the structure of the new GMC Sierra. The Yukon also lifts Sierra styling cues, including a new grille, full-width bumper and sculpted sides and fenders for a more modern, even aerodynamic look.

More importantly, GMC will endow the base Yukon with a new 5.3-liter V8 featuring direct injection and cylinder deactivation for better power and efficiency. The new V8 delivers 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission equipped with a tow/haul mode and automatic grade braking function. The Yukon Denali model, meanwhile, gets a new 6.2-liter V8 making 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Yukon is rated to tow up to 8,500 pounds.

A diet of extensive aluminum and high-strength steel helped shed around 250 pounds from the new Sierra, but the Yukon's weight loss is more modest. An aluminum hood and liftgate panels help trim some flab, although new features and technologies negate some of the gains. Among them: a power liftgate, a standard center airbag between the driver and passenger, active cruise control, blind-spot warning, forward collision alert, lane departure warning and, on Denali models, an adaptive suspension.

Upgraded upholstery quality, improved dash and door panels, an 8-inch touchscreen display and GMC's IntelliLink smartphone integration align the new Yukon interior with the classy offerings of Ford and Toyota competitors. The Yukon also finally gets third-row seats that fold into the floor. This convenience -- past Yukons require the removal of the third seat for maximum cargo space -- comes at a cost, however: 14 cubic feet of cargo capacity are lost, leaving 94.7 cubes to work with when the second row is folded flat.

The 2015 GMC Yukon should be available next summer at a base price around $42,000. Check back for a full review of the 2015 Yukon, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
