2015 Yukon more than the 2014 Expedition can handle

Companies mentioned in this article: Cavender Buick GMC North

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The 2015 GMC Yukon available at Cavender Buick GMC North is the latest version of one of the most respected and capable full-size SUVs that has ever been built for a San Antonio audience. When people hear the words GMC Yukon, the smart money bets on people picturing a hard working SUV that has the room to accommodate several passengers, their gear while towing a trailer. Just about every element on the new Yukon has been improved to the point where it is nearly in a class by itself. Still, there remains competitors out there from other auto manufacturers that will try to distract customers and knock down the 2015 GMC Yukon.

When trying to do comparison shopping of a GMC SUV, it is very hard to not look and see how green the grass is on the other side of the fence. This means only one vehicle to challenge the hometown contestant; setting up a battle between the 2015 GMC Yukon vs. the 2014 Ford Expedition. One of the chief advantages that the new Yukon holds over the Expedition is that it is available right now, whereas those holding out for the 2015 version of the Expedition are going to have to wait patiently for a few more months. Beyond that the battle swings more than fairly convincingly toward a 2015 GMC Yukon victory and things become pretty academic and objective.

Just from a powertrain standpoint, the 2015 GMC Yukon earns more points than the engine under the hood of the 2014 Ford Expedition. The new Yukon provides one of the best possible engines to its customers in the EcoTec3 5.3-liter, V-8 engine with the capability of producing more than 350 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque to match. By comparison, the 5.4-liter, V-8 powering the 2014 Expedition makes just 312 horsepower and has been known to struggle on steep grades with a full trailer. Furthermore, the 2015 GMC Yukon gives it drivers that 40-plus more horsepower and still records better Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy scores of 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway. The Ford SUV posts 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.
