The sale of SUVs has slightly abated recently due to rising prices of fuel but GMC seems not daunted by this phenomenon. Just last October 5, 2005, GMC unveiled the 2007 Yukon and the flagship Yukon Denali full-size SUV at the California International Auto Show in Anaheim. In GMC’s words, these new Yukon editions are the most powerful, agile, fuel efficient and refined among GMC’s sport utilities. Inside and out the new GMC Yukon and Yukon Denali models offer the best that you can ask for from a full-size truck.
Both models feature sleek and brawny body. The wraparound front and rear fascias give the two distinct look, obviously different from the previous models. Yukon and Yukon Denali exude a more contemporary look and stands more confidently this time. Its finely styled GMC mirrors, crystal clear GMC lights, doors extending over the rockers, integrated running boards, and perfectly aligned GMC wheels are some of the most exciting exterior features to look forward to in these new SUVs.
The GMC headlights are noticeably larger and taller. They use halogen bulbs that emit stronger and brighter beam. Aside from enhancing the vehicle’s styling, these lights also significantly improve these SUVs’ safety. The new GMC taillights give the rear end a different look as well. They have superbly designed crystal clear lenses that further enhance illumination.
What you see is what you get. The 2007 Yukon and Yukon Denali’s interior are just as excellently designed as the exterior. Buyers can choose between cloth and leather-trimmed versions with rear or four-wheel drive. These new models are roomier than earlier models. Cargo space has also improved.
