Long before Cadillac got its own version of GM's full-size SUV, the GMC Denali was the top of the line. And some still prefer the lower-key look of the Yukon to Caddy's blinged-out Escalade. Unfortunately for those deterred by big bills and stigma of a gas-guzzling sport-ute, GM's hybrid system wasn't available on the Denali...until now.
The new GMC Yukon Denali Hybrid features a 332-horsepower 6-liter V8 coupled to a 2-Mode Electric Variable Transmission which employs two electric motors to bring the big truck's fuel consumption down to 21 city/22 highway. It also includes GM's slick MagnaRide suspension for the first time, and more to the point offers all the luxury of the Escalade in a less over-the-top package.
