Aside from the superficial looks, the inbound Yukon model is characterized by excellent performance. The company says it has left no stone unturned in the building of the next GMC Yukon. For that reason, it will showcase a lot of luxuries unseen before.
2019 GMC Yukon Body Style and Platform
The 2019 GMC Yukon follows the footprints set by the fourth generation GMC Yukon models. We can, therefore, expect it to ride on General Motor’s GMT K2 platform. It shares this platform with several other cars in this category, including the likes of Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, Cadillac ESV and Cadillac Escalade. Also using this underlying architecture is the GMC Sierra and the Chevrolet Silverado.
The revived 2019 GMC Yukon brings some significantly overhauled aerodynamics, along with better quality supplies. You can expect to find a new bumper that enhances the vehicle’s bold looks. Additionally, its grille receives a detailed innovation which comprises stainless details.
As far as the new GMC Yukon tires are concerned, the vehicle gets furnished with 18-inch rollers. Some rumors have it that this car will also get equipped with optional 20-inch tires, but these are mostly reserved for top-spec versions. It also receives new fog lights and reinvented black lobes, and these changes will get accomplished via re-designing studios.
The company has restructured the seat settings in this vehicle in the quest to provide the required convenience to passengers. The cabin size also becomes bigger this time. That means the cabin will become more spacious and roomy to suffice a handful more passengers.
The 2019 GMC Yukon receives a lot of new capabilities making it possible for the car to add modern luxuries and minimize noise levels in the cabin. Some of the outstanding technologies include standard infotainment system, CD gamer, eight-inch touchscreen, heated seats, automated climate control system, Bluetooth connectivity and OnStar tech elements.
Security System and Features
In terms of driver and passenger security, the company has announced plans to overhaul its security systems and features. Rumors suggest dozens of security elements in this vehicle, such as blind-spot monitoring system, additional airbags, cross-traffic warning, rear parking cameras, camcorders, and entrance accident sensors among others.
2019 GMC Yukon Engine and Gearbox
Apparently, 2019 GMC Yukon carries on with the same engines which we saw in the previous versions. We expect two engines; a 5.3 L V8 engine generating 355 horses and a 6.2L V8 option that transmits almost 420 horses and 460 pounds-feet of torque.
All these options convey fast power as well as cylindrical hose deactivation solutions, which prove handy in boosting fuel economy and efficiency. Basic variants come standard with the rear-wheel-drive setup, but top-ranking options transfer power to all the wheels. The engine pairs with a brand-new 8-speed automatic gearbox, although lower variants bring forth an old six-speed alternative.
