The 2015 GMC Yukon Denali
Offerings from GMC have been virtually identical considering those bow ties on the grille, and are considered extra-sturdy and durable as a result of the “Professional Grade” marketing campaign. And henceforth the brand has been a consistent performer. One of the secret ingredients to the recipe of success for the brand is its idea of adding new vehicles to its lineup that do not strictly follow the defined lines by the brand or are altered to an extent that they are no longer recognizable as GMC. The very idea is fortified by the new 2015 GMC Yukon Denali. With additions to its equipment including the enhanced power support, new fold-flat rear seat and more comfortable interiors, the 2015 GMC Yukon Denali is powered by a newer engine offering better performance and efficiency. There are prominent changes in the styling and the full sized SUV promises to give its passengers better security and better entertainment with the improved security and infotainment packages.
Powered by an all new 6.2 liter V-8 Eco Tec3 engine, the grand SUV now boasts direct-injection technology, continuously variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation and avant-garde and active fuel management. Mated to a six speed Hydra-matic transmission with tap shift control, tow/haul mode and Auto Grade Breaking, the new GMC Yukon Denali is one step ahead when it comes to technology. Flaunting the best engine in the segment, the robust SUV runs on 420 horsepower and enormous 450 pound feet of torque! And for this very reason the vehicle sports a top speed of 180 mph and is capable of accelerating from rest to 60 mph in a sprint time of 6.8 seconds.
On the inside, the new Yukon Denali is calm and understated. The premium infotainment system sports a soft touch instrument panel, console and Bose surround sound. Dual-firmness foam of the front seats and ambient air ventilation elevates the comfort for the front seat passengers. The calmness of the 2015 Denali is added to by the active noise cancellation technology making everyday commuting into a rather delightful journey. On the outside, it is slimmer and more aerodynamic than its predecessor and hence is more efficient. The front boasts the signature GMC grille and headlamps equipped with exclusive high intensity discharge (HID) lamp. The additional exterior features include illuminated power retractable assist steps, new inlaid doors designed to open into the body side and light aluminum hood along with liftgate panel, a rear spoiler, all new worm screw-style liftgate arms and the standard 20-inch alloy wheels.
The new GMC Yukon Denali is a beasty full sized SUV that appears to be tracing the footsteps of the forthcoming Cadillac Escalade with its elevated level of techno wizardry. Yet the styling of the premium SUV remains essentially GMC. The 2015 GMC Yukon Denali has not yet been officially priced, but the giant SUV is expected to be priced as not much different from the 2014 version and hence the base price is anticipated to be $ 56,820. Despite the content and aspirations of the 2015 Denali are synonymous with Cadillac that bow on the grille marks its GMC-ness!
