The 2014 GMC Yukon is in the eighth year of its present style and form, and is a sister vehicle to the Chevrolet Tahoe. The two nameplates have been sold by the respective manufacturers for over 20 years, and are classified as full-size SUVs.
For the last half-dozen years, GMC vehicles have been offered as a more luxurious version of the Chevrolet, with the GMC Yukon Denali having a mild resemblance to the Cadillac Escalade. Such a Yukon is the model I recently tested courtesy of Weld County Garage, and manager Ryan Green.
After picking up the GMC, snow fell in Greeley for about a day, enabling me to go out and have a blast with the sturdy, all-wheel drive Yukon Denali. There’s just something about wheeling around on slick streets, in the cold, holding on to a warm steering wheel, sitting on a heated leather seat, and guiding a 5,500 lb. vehicle with a true truck chassis. Come summer, this GMC can handle a 30 ft., two-axle Airstream (or an alternate brand) trailer for vacation fun.
Power for the Yukon is supplied by a Vortec 6.2 liter, V-8 engine (403 hp/417 lb.ft.) with variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation, and FlexFuel capability. The transmission is a six-speed automatic with driver shift control and the rear axle ratio is 3.42. Fuel economy ratings for the Denali are 13-city […]

With so many color choices, can you guess which is the new reigning champion? It’s official! White has taken the lead as the most popular car color in 2013.
Move over, silver, there’s a new leader in the automotive market! For over 10 years, silver has remained in the top spot as the world’s most popular car color, and in 2013, its reign has officially come to an end. Leading supplier of automotive paints PPG Industries has announced that 25% of all vehicles it supplied this year were white, while silver fell to just 18%.
While silver remains the most popular in South America, white cars have officially taken over the highways in Europe, North America and Asia. This might not come as a surprise to shoppers, with white making a huge comeback among high-tech gadgets and in stores like Apple Inc.
Shoppers on the hunt for a stunning new crossover or SUV in this year’s hot new color will be thrilled with the selection they’ll find at Weld County Garage Buick GMC. Those looking for something more compact can find the vehicle of their dreams in the 2014 GMC Terrain, while those […]
