GMC Earns Most Refined Brand Award by KBB.com

2016 GMC Lineup

For the third-consecutive year, GMC earned the Most Refined Brand Award from Kelley Blue Book.

This prestigious award was presented to the GMC brand at the 2016 New York International Auto Show. The reason why the award is important is because it recognizes an automaker’s ability to create and maintain products that create excitement amongst prospective car buyers.

In order to determine each award winner, data from more than 12,000 KBB.com users was analyzed in the Kelley Blue Book Strategic Insights’ Brand Watch study. This study focuses on what factors are important to consumers when purchasing a new vehicle, as well as the buyer’s familiarity and loyalty towards a particular brand.

GMC’s Denali sub-brand was credited by KBB.com as being a huge reason why GMC was honored as the Most Refined Brand. Denali models are known for their enhanced style and superior luxury features. In fact, Denali vehicles accounted for 23% of all GMC retail sales last year, which outsold Porsche’s full line of products.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon Fuel Economy Leads Segment

“The all-new 2015 GMC Canyon adds segment-leading fuel economy to its winning resume,” said Kenn Bakowski, Canyon marketing manager, in a statement. “Innovations such as available active grille shutters combine with an aerodynamic design in a smaller, more maneuverable package to set a new standard for fuel economy in midsize trucks.”

Both trucks will use the same engines and have the same fuel economy ratings. For the 3.6-liter V-6 with direct fuel injection and continuously variable valve timing, two-wheel drive models are rated at 18 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined. 4×4 models get 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined.

GMC and Chevrolet are injecting a healthy dose of power and fuel economy in their new 2015 models, including the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is one of several GM vehicles receiving upgrades to power and fuel economy this year.

This marks a hefty 7 percent city mileage improvement and an incredible 10 percent highway mileage increase, proving that even full-size SUVs can deliver on the fuel economy front.

For consumers who desire even more power from their big machines on wheels, the GMC Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali now feature an exclusive 6.2-liter V8 that produces a whopping 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque! You won’t find higher numbers in a full-size SUV anywhere on the market. In two-wheel drive mode, that engine offers 15 city and 21 highway miles to the gallon.
