2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon Receive Boost in Fuel Economy

By | February 24, 2014
The redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, and GMC Yukon full-size SUVs achieve up to 10 percent better fuel economy on the highway. All three models, when equipped with the standard 5.3-liter V8 engine and two-wheel drive, achieve 16/23 mpg city/highway. Buyers looking for the four-wheel drive versions won't have to sacrifice much by way of fuel economy, as numbers for these models are up to 16/22 mpg city/highway. Power has also increased to 355 horsepower for all models with this engine. According to FuelEconomy.gov, buyers of these models will spend $3,000 more in fuel costs over the course of five years compared to the average new vehicle. However, these SUVs achieve better fuel economy than the current Toyota Sequoia. The 2015 GMC Yukon and larger Yukon XL will be available with an exclusive 6.2-liter V8 engine that provides 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. According to GM, the GMC Yukon equipped with this engine offers the most power and torque in its class. But this comes at a price. This model gets 14/21 mpg city/highway, considerably lower than the smaller engine. We will be driving these refreshed SUVs in the coming days. Stay tuned for a full review.

GM is doing a great job with this truck. Despite how big and square it is, it continues to be a good seller. I wish Ford and other manufacturers still had "square-ish" trucks. I've always liked the Tahoes and Denalis because of their tough appearance aside from the massive interior space and comfort. There's nothing wrong with a 6.2L V8 full-size SUV but that's just me!
