Updated 2015 GMC Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali

The all-new 2015 Yukon and the entire Yukon lineup, including the Yukon, Yukon XL and the Yukon Denali, is one of the industry’s most popular full-size SUV lineups. GMC's flagship SUV, the Yukon, was engineered from the ground up for model year 2015. The new Yukon saw a bundle of new innovative and purposeful technology features along with exceptional refinement and greater performance.

New and enhanced product highlights across the 2015 Yukon lineup include:
  • Multiple USB ports, an SD slot and accessory power outlets – including a 110-volt three-prong outlet –  to support electronic devices of all kinds
  • Eight-inch-diagonal customizable driver display with three available user themes and available head-up display (Denali models)
  • Standard eight-inch-diagonal color touch screen radio with enhanced IntelliLink and available navigation
  • Fold-flat second- and third-row seats that enhance cargo capability and convenience – including an available power-folding feature
  • Conversation mirror in the overhead console that provides a panoramic view of the rear seats
  • Available Blu-ray/DVD rear-seat entertainment system with dual screens on Yukon XL
  • Available power rear liftgate with multiple programmable height settings
  • Available hands-free liftgate operation (standard on Denali)
  • Available wireless phone charging (standard on Denali)
  • Easier entry/exit
  • All-new cargo management system
  • Available keyless entry and push-button start.

The 2015 GMC Yukon offers greater performance, new fold-flat rear seats and a quieter interior. They’re also better-connected, with next-generation IntelliLink. These state-of-the-art features have resonated with our GMC customers. New 2015 Yukon buyers have come to Ferguson Buick GMC from all across Oklahoma and Green Country including Okmulgee, Owasso, Sand Springs, Tulsa, Broken Arrow, and Oklahoma City.  All falling in love with the new Yukon and discovering the Ferguson Advantage.

It's hard to image GMC packing any more innovative technologies and performance engineering onto the 2015 Yukon.....but pack more they did indeed. Nearly half way through the first year of production GMC updated the 2015 Yukon and 2015 Yukon Denali. GMC has called the new updated 2015 Yukons, the 2015 interim GMC Yukon.

One updated enhancement you'll find on the new interim Yukon include a new Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission, designed to be more fuel-efficient. The new transmission is fitted to the new Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali interim models. EPA highway mileage estimates for two-wheel drive Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali models increase to 22 mpg with the eight-speed automatic, while the EPA city mileage estimate for the four-wheel drive Yukon Denali model rises to 15 mpg.

Compared to the Yukon Denali’s previous six-speed transmission, the new 8L90 transmission offers smaller steps between gears, allowing the engine to efficiently leverage its peak power bands. The wider gearing spread also allows the use of a lower 3.23:1 rear axle ratio, which reduces engine speeds and fuel consumption, especially during highway cruising.

Comfort and capability are not compromised for fuel economy. Not only is the 8L90 transmission capable of handling more torque than the six-speed transmission it replaces, but its shift controls and solenoids are more responsive and provide quicker shift times. A new torque converter also delivers smoother performance at low speeds, especially when carrying heavy loads or pulling trailers. Tow ratings – up to 8,400 pounds for the Yukon Denali and 8,100 pounds for the Yukon XL Denali – are unaffected by the addition of the eight-speed transmission.

Performance enhancements are not the only upgrades you'll find on the new 2015 interim Yukons, there's also some really cool innovative technology features GMC snuck onto the SUV. The 2015 interim GMC Yukon features a wireless charging surface for WPC (Qi) or PMA (Powermat) compatible mobile devices integrated into the design of the center console lid. Simply rest your smartphone on the powermat located in the middle of the center console, and your phone will automatically begin to charge. You'll never have to go through the hassles of a wired phone charger ever again!

The distinctive interim Denali models deliver an exclusive package of design, performance and upscale interior amenities.
