10% Better Mileage in New Chevy and GMC SUVs

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.

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

Each model has taken on a new and improved standard 5.3-liter engine, returning an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with two-wheel drive. 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. Considering the power, that’s quite good!
