2015 Yukon, Yukon XL Make Their World Debuts

The next generations of GMC’s popular SUVs have made their debuts!

At simultaneous events in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas, General Motors unveiled the redesigned 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, along with their Chevrolet brethren, renewing GM’s commitment to making the best SUVs in the world.

The all-new sport utilities are getting the same platform as GM’s recently launched full-sized trucks, but the exterior design and interior layout will be completely unique.

Noticeable Design and Aesthetic Changes

The exterior design is more aerodynamic, and GM is using new sheet metal for a blockier, more chiseled look. Unlike the 2014 models, the new Yukon and Yukon XL will not share doors or side panels with the Chevy Silverado.

Noticeable changes in the 2015 Yukon and Yukon XL include a heavier use of chrome accents and swept-back front headlights that mold into the front fenders.

The grille is also reworked with a more new style that gives the classic SUVs a more modern look.

GM has also implemented inlaid doors, which fit into the body side openings rather than overlapping the top of the body.

“We’ve engineered the Yukon and Yukon XL from the ground up, building on a strong legacy of capability to take them to the top of the segment with exceptional refinement and purposeful technology.”
– Tony DiSalle, Vice President of GMC Marketing

Although official numbers are not out yet, GM promises that the 2015 GMC Yukon and 2015 GMC Yukon XL will be more powerful and more capable than ever before.

Both SUVs will carry GM’s EcoTec3 5.3L V8 which is currently rated at 355 hp and 383 ft-lbs of torque.

Just like the fuel-efficient 2014 GMC Sierra, the 2015 Yukon and Yukon XL will feature cylinder deactivation, continuously variable valve timing, and direct injection.

American SUVs Made in the USA

General Motors has announced that the 2015 Yukon and Yukon XL will be built in Arlington, Texas.

Buyers looking for the GMC SUVs will be able to find them in Cedar Rapids around the first quarter of 2014.
