is planning to add another SUV to its hybrid vehicle
fleet, in this case wearing the Yukon's
top-level Denali trim. There's not much new to report here, as the Yukon Denali
Hybrid will feature the same exact drivetrain that's fitted to its siblings from The General
, including the non-Denali Yukon. That means we'll see a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 engine with 332 hp and 367 lb-ft of torque mated up with GM's
sophisticated 2-Mode hybrid
transmission. Expect EPA fuel economy
ratings of 21 city, 22 highway for two-wheel drive models and 20/20 when equipped with four-wheel drive.
The hybrid Denali will make its debut at the New York Auto Show
, joining the new-for-2010 GMC Terrain
, which is based on the equally new Chevy Equinox
. GM will debut a new 2.4-liter four cylinder engine in the Terrain
that will manage 30 mpg on the highway
. Optional will be a 3.0-liter direct injected V6 that will get an estimated 18 city and 25 highway.
