The GMC Yukon was first introduced in 1992 as a full-sized sport utility vehicle to replace the GMC Jimmy. Built to withstand harsh road conditions and with enough enclosed cargo space to easily take all you need with you, the GMC Yukon also incorporated plush features to enable the driver and passengers to ride in comfort and convenience. Though there were no real significant differences between the GMC Yukon and the Chevrolet Blazer, or the Yukon and Tahoe in more recent years, both were presented to the public and well received as an option to a less passenger conscious open bed pickup truck.
From 1992 until 1994, the GMC Yukon was only available in a two-door model. Wisely increasing ease of use, functionality and appeal to SUV consumers, in 1995 GMC introduced a four door Yukon. Further redesigned for the 2000 model year, the only notable differences between the GMC Yukon and the Chevrolet Tahoe were cosmetic, with the GMC Yukon featuring more upscale options.
The new vehicle incorporates an Active Fuel Management System, which reduces the amount of cylinders in use when all 8 cylinders are not required, and increases fuel efficiency, which can be critical in a high powered vehicle of this size. Towing capabilities are more than adequate and the vehicle height has been lowered providing an overall streamlined and lower profile. Safety is also emphasized in the 2007 GMC Yukon, with the inclusion of a rear view camera and rear parking proximity warning signals, in addition to abundant air bags and a remote starter system.
Available in all-wheel or rear-wheel drive and providing seating for up to eight passengers, the Yukon could conceivably be described as a lavishly accessorized mini bus. Whether you need a work-horse vehicle or a truly spacious and comfortable ride for more than five people, the GMC Yukon can accommodate in comfort as long as you can afford the prices of gasoline.
2013 GMC Yukon
Okay, so the 2013 GMC Yukon doesn't have the eye-catching appeal or luxurious feel of many other full-size SUVs, such as the Cadillac Escalade or Ford Expedition, it still appeals to many potential car buyers with capable abilities and a standard appearance. The Yukon is available to consumers in 9 of GMCs standard colors and the base model starts at a price of $40,185. While this price certainly isn't cheap, it is more affordable than many of its competitors on the market today.
The 2013 Yukon comes with standard bi-xenon headlights, which provide the ultimate in road visibility. It has a very wide stance, even for a full-size SUV and comes with GMC's signature front grille. The middle model, the Yukon SLT comes with an available chrome package, enhancing the outward appearance of this SUV. This comprehensive package includes 20-inch mirror-polished aluminum wheels, a fully chrome front grille, chrome door handles, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes and mirror caps. If this doesn't turn some heads on the road, we're not sure what else will. more
