The Yukon Hybrid features the world's first production 2-Mode full hybrid propulsion system in an SUV, which offers an estimated 25-percent overall improvement in fuel economy. Better still, the fuel-saving advantages are balanced with a superior driving experience and uncompromised capability. The Yukon Hybrid can tow up to 6,200 pounds (2,812 kg); and to maximize its efficiency, its Vortec 6.0L V-8 engine is equipped with GM's Active Fuel Management technology, which switches between four- and eight-cylinder power in certain driving situations.
'The innovative Hybrid system is designed to deliver optimum fuel efficiency in both city and highway driving, the way most Americans use their vehicles,' said Tom Stephens, group vice president, GM Powertrain. 'The Yukon Hybrid doesn't sacrifice a thing; it delivers 25-percent improvement in overall fuel economy and the capability that the Yukon name has always represented.'
The Yukon and Yukon XL are based on GM's acclaimed full-size SUV platform and feature distinctive styling, spacious and refined interiors, exceptional driving characteristics and segment-leading safety features. Indeed, safety also is enhanced for '08, as head curtain side air bags are now standard for all seating rows on all models. Previously they were optional on some models.
