Next Generation Yukon Family Heading to Dealerships in Early 2014

2015 Yukon FamilyThe GMC Yukon has always provided the perfect definition of an SUV. With its rugged looks and its refined interior features, this stylish and capable machine can easily haul a crowd and all their cargo. From the base model to the luxurious Denali trim, the Yukon family has consistently been a top choice among those seeking a capable and attractive sport utility vehicle. To remain a top choice, GMC has revealed the all-new 2015 Yukon family, designed to be more stylish, more capable, and more efficient than ever before.

Refinement is a word that is not often associated with full-size SUVs, however the 2015 Yukon lineup has embraced this term. All-new exterior and interior designs of Yukon and Yukon XL are crafted to be both beautiful and functional. The 2015 Yukon will also feature the new EcoTec3 engine family that is expected to deliver the best V-8 fuel economy for this segment.

“We’ve engineered the Yukon and Yukon XL from the ground up, building on a strong legacy of capability to take them to the top of the segment with exceptional refinement and purposeful technology,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC marketing. “And when it comes to tasks people rely on a full-size SUV for, they do it better than ever – and with more style.”

The new Yukon family will be built right here in Texas and is expected to arrive at Crawford Buick GMC and dealerships around the country in the first quarter of 2014. For additional information on the next generation Yukon lineup, visit our El Paso dealership in person or online.

2014 Sierra and Sierra Denali Among First Pickups to Receive Five-Star Safety Score

2014 SierraBeginning with the 2011 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) changed its New Car Assessment Program to include new requirements for vehicles to pass into order to receive the highest possible five-star overall safety rating. Since this new rating system was implemented, no pickup truck has ever attained this five-star score…until now. The all-new 2014 GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali (along with their Chevy Silverado cousin) are the first pickup trucks to receive a five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the NHTSA.

Redesigned inside and out for the 2014 model year, the GMC Sierra mixes rugged styling cues with proven power and dependability. The advanced technologies and tech specs on the 2014 Sierra make it the best Sierra yet. Standard safety features on the base model include daytime running lights, StabiliTrak stability control system, tire pressure monitoring system, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, and dual-stage frontal and seat mounted air bags for driver and passenger. Additional available safety features include a rear vision camera, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, and safety alert seats that vibrate pulses to warn the driver of potential traffic danger.

“Safety is as important to truck buyers as it is to car buyers,” said Gay Kent, GM general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. “Silverado and Sierra set a benchmark for pickup truck safety by offering a full array of advanced features designed to protect occupants before, during, and after a collision.”

Sierra 1500 Proves Its Strength In a Demanding New TV Spot

Sure, with several decades of brawn and strength backing it up, you’ve come to expect a lot from the GMC Sierra pickup. But just how strong is the 2013 Sierra 1500’s steel frame? In a new TV spot, Sierra was put to the test as four mooring winches pulled the truck in all directions a total of 46 times. After withstanding such abuse, the 2013 Sierra Denali used for the spot drove away unscathed.

“We considered countless tasks and conditions where our trucks would head to work when developing the Sierra’s frame, but to be honest, this challenge caught us by surprise,” said Rick Jayroe, engineering group manager for chassis structure and body mounts. “Not only would this test the four mounting points, but only a very strong frame will stay perfectly straight hanging in the air with the weight of the body, powertrain and interior components on it. The Sierra handled it with ease.”

Still not convinced? Come check out the 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 for yourself at Crawford Buick GMC. Visit our El Paso dealership where you’ll find just the right pickup to suit your needs and withstand all the challenges you throw at it.
