New GMC SUV to Debut in New York

NEW YORK - The Big Apple is the setting for big news from GMC with the world-wide introduction of the all-new 2001 Yukon Denali at the New York Auto Show. GMC's full-size, upscale SUV is sure to impress attendees with unsurpassed levels of styling, improved capabilities and premium features in a true professional-grade package. In addition to Yukon Denali, GMC will make world-wide introductions of two additional vehicles, that when combined with Denali, strengthen GMC's hold on the premium truck market and further heighten GM's full-size truck leadership.

  • Unsurpassed Agility

The Yukon Denali features the most powerful engine in the half-ton, full-size utility segment - a new Vortec 6000 V8 that delivers 325-horsepower and 370 ft-lb of torque. The addition of a heavy-duty electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission makes this powertrain combination highly responsive and quick reacting.

And, for the first time in a full-size SUV, Yukon Denali is equipped with a standard full-time all-wheel-drive system that provides superior handling and traction for varying road conditions without requiring extra effort from the driver. Handling also gets a boost from the standard AutoRide computer-controlled suspension system, which provides automatic variable shock damping on all four wheels. Yukon Denali is also the first full-size SUV to offer 17-inch wheels and tires to enhance the vehicle's smooth, quiet ride even further. Yukon Denali's new, unsurpassed powertrain plus it's great chassis gives new meaning to agility and control on any road.

  • Stylish Attitude

The Yukon Denali has unique exterior styling that sets it apart from the crowd on the outside, as well. It features a robust and refined front-end appearance that is highlighted by a bold center-port chrome grille and chrome lamp bezels; unique front and rear bumper fascias; and a monotone exterior appearance with body-colored fascias, molding, running boards, door handles, and rearview mirror caps. On the inside, the Yukon Denali features tone-on-tone leather-trimmed seats; Denali-embroidered door panels; and black cherry wood-grain accents on the IP bezel, door panel switch plates and center console.

  • Premium Amenities

Yukon Denali surrounds occupants in a plush environment as well as providing a host of refined, distinctive comfort features. Among these are heated front- and second-row seats, and a premium 11-speaker Bose Acoustimass sound system with midrange, tweeters and subwoofers specifically tuned for the vehicles. Denali also includes standard OnStar and Homelink navigation systems, remote steering-wheel-mounted radio controls, theater dimming lights with additional courtesy lighting in the second-row seating area, and a highly sophisticated driver information center that is programmable in four languages. Denali's distinctive center console features damped-door storage covers, illuminated storage bins and specific phone storage areas.
