2016 GMC Yukon Redesign

Without letting their competitors recover in the wake of the
2015 GMC Yukon, GMC is quickly tightening its grip with its
2016 update.This should not be presumed to be a marketing
strategy,since GMC has always had quality as its accent.

The modern design, interior style and the capability to haul
8000 pounds, makes the Yukon a fascinating option when it comes
to choosing amongst the few remaining full-size SUVs on the
market that are made with true intended style and comfort.


The redesigned 2016 GMC Yukon will be produced in the Yukon,
Yukon XL, Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali versions. Yukon XL
has a 14-inch longer wheelbase than the standard version, for
greater third-row legroom and larger trunk.

GMC have focused on improving the features and interior with
this refresh. However, they have made sure the exterior isn’t
left out by showcasing a sharper, more streamlined approach to
the typically boxy and clumsy looking shape of more traditional
SUVs.The two new 22 inch wheel designs and a high strength
steel frame add to the powerful yet impeccably stylish look,
providing customers with a versatile vehicle that wouldn’t look
a miss in the family driveway, or within the bright lights of
some of America’s most glamorous night spots. In addition
on the improvements that have been the model for the 2016 year
are: Inlaid doors fit into the body side openings to reduce
wind noise and improve aerodynamics, Laminated windshield and
front door glass to enhance quietness, keyless entry fob. There
are also two new colors that can be ordered with an additional
charge Crimson Red Tintcoat (SLE, SLT and Denali) and White
Frost Tricoat (SLT and Denali).  A rear-vision camera
system is standard on all models.

The word cabin does no justice for an interior that provides
such appeal, soft-touch fabric and the Denali trim, creating a
luxurious experience, this is more than just your ordinary
look. The soundproofing of the cabin has proved to be a
particular hit; the triple seal doors and laminated windshield
provide excellent protection from outside noise. There is an
array of modern features available for those who wish to add to
the standard design, such as mood lighting, tri-zone automatic
climate control system(standard on all models), Blu-Ray
entertainment, eight-inch-diagonal customizable driver
display with three available user themes (compatible with Apple
CarPlay), head-up display (Denali models), multiple USB ports,
110-volt three-prong outlet, Wireless phone charging
 and a Bose surround sound system.

The rest of the interior is also excellent designed, rear-seat
entertainment system with Blu-Ray / DVD player, wireless
headphones, USB port and SD card slot, fold-flat Second-and
third-row seats, Heated second-row outboard seats, Cargo
Management system that includes a cargo net and much more.

Engine Specs and Performance

The upgraded engine in Yukon Denali is GMC’s 6.2-liter V-8
paired with the Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed automatic
transmission, a sizeable increase from the standard 5.3-liter
V-8 in the 2016 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, SLE and SLT
models. For fellow petrol heads, the real excitement around the
2016 upgrade is the enhancement in power. A top speed of 125
mph, the vehicle also makes 420 horse power and 460 pound-feet,
whereas the smaller model had “only” 355 horsepower and
383 pound-feet of torque and is mated to a Hydra-Matic
6L80, six-speed automatic gearbox. In addition to this, EcoTec3
engine cutting edge technology has allowed for the introduction
of direct injection and cylinder-deactivation technology. This
has helped deliver strong acceleration and an impressive fuel
economy, that on the highway with 5.3 liter engine is
about 23 mpg and 16 mpg in the city . Stronger option has
a fuel economy of 15/21 mpg (2WD) and 14/20 mpg (4WD).
