GMC’s Denali and Yukon Denali XL to be Upgraded
Leading the GMC fleet, the Denali and Yukon Denali XL cast quite a shadow. Now GMC has announced the powerful Yukon Denali and Yukon Denali XL will be the recipients of some new and powerful upgrades.
GMC introduced the Denali in 1999 followed by the extended Yukon XL in 2001. The name Denali is derived from the native name for the famous Mount McKinley in Alaska. The name also means “the high one,” adding prestige to the top tier large SUVs which both top the GMC fleet. Over the years at Arnie Bauer, both SUVs have commanded a loyal following, and now GMC has set to improve the popular duo of large SUVs yet again.
The Denali’s 6.2-liter V8 engine will now be assisted by a new eight-speed automatic transmission. GMC revealed that the new transmission will provide the Denali and the Denali XL with better performance, smoother transitions, improved shift times, and fuel efficiency. The Yukon XL delivers improved horsepower, torque, and fuel economy thanks to the new V8 6.2L EcoTec3 engine. In addition to the new transmission, the large SUVs will garner a hands-free liftgate, wireless smartphone charger, and Onstar with 4G LTE. The intellilink infotainment system is improved with text capability and ‘Text Message Alerts’ with pairing of a compatible Bluetooth phone.
The Yukon Denali and Yukon Denali XL are currently available at the introductory pricing of $64,965 and $67,665. Both vehicles are protected with GMC’s Pro Grade Protection plan which covers 5 years/100,000 miles Powertrain Warranty, 5 years/100,000 roadside assistance and courtesy transportation, and 2 years/24,000 of scheduled maintenance standard. Drivers will also benefit from a 6-month trial of Onstar included in the Pro Grade Protection package as well.
With added power, better fuel economy, and complete coverage, the new 2015 Yukon Denali and Yukon Denali XL are the pinnacle of large SUVs. See the GMC difference for yourself.
