Chevrolet and GMC have revealed all-new versions of their full-size SUVs – the Yukon and Yukon XL and Tahoe and Suburban. As well as featuring new exterior and interior designs, the four new SUVs are expected to deliver the segment’s best V8 fuel economy owing to the introduction of a new family of EcoTec3 engines.
The all-new 2015 Yukon, Yukon XL and flagship Yukon Denali (above), models, shown in Los Angeles, will aim to deliver more capability and refinement, with more power, new fold-flat rear seats and a quieter interior.
Yukon and Yukon XL (above) share design, architectural and powertrain elements, but Yukon XL has an approximately 14-inch longer wheelbase and is approximately 20 inches longer overall, providing more legroom for third-row passengers and almost twice the cargo room behind the third-row seat.
“Although they are based on a similar architecture, Yukon and Yukon XL are distinctive products that appeal to different customers,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing.
“Versatility and spaciousness are valued by customers for both vehicles, but the Yukon XL is the choice for families with more children and those with lifestyles that require its unique combination of passenger- and cargo-hauling capabilities. In fact, Yukon XL owners are more than twice as likely to transport passengers daily in the third-row seat,” he added.
The 2015 Tahoe (above) and Suburban (below), revealed in New York, are also designed to be more functional and comfortable while offering more safety features and an increased range of new technologies specifically for connected customers.
“There are several new features and enhancements at the core of the all-new 2015 Suburban and Tahoe that will extend the legacy Chevrolet has built as the segment leader. Customers will experience greater refinement, efficiency and safety with the same capability that has made Chevrolet the go-to brand for full-size SUVs,” said Tim Mahoney, Chevrolet’s current global chief marketing officer.
Chevrolet and GMC together are responsible for three of every four vehicles sold in the United States. With a 74 percent market share through August this year, General Motors’ dominance in the segment is clear. So far in 2013, Chevrolet and GMC have sold 125,000 Chevrolet Tahoes and Suburbans and GMC Yukons and Yukon XLs.
