GMC Yukon Recognized on List of Longest-Lasting Vehicles

Typically, when we think of long-lasting vehicles, we think of small, compact cars. The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL shatter this assumption, however. Both vehicles were just recognized in a study featuring models that lasted for 200,000 miles or more. The Yukon and Yukon XL are the largest SUVs in the GMC lineup, offering tons of dependable power and capability that last in the long run.

The study was performed by iSeeCars.com and determined the top 14 longest-lasting vehicles in America. To determine the list, iSeeCars.com evaluated approximately 14 million used cars sold in 2018 that were manufactured between 1981 and 2018. Remarkably, the GMC Yukon XL claimed the fourth spot on the list, and the GMC Yukon came in at number 8. While 4 percent of Yukon XL models surpass 200,000 miles, 2.8 percent of Yukon models do the same.

Such distinction was not reserved for only the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. In comparison to all vehicle brands sold in the states, GMC claimed the third spot in longest-lasting vehicles overall, with 1.4 percent of GMC models reaching 200,000 miles. Other GM vehicles were also heavily lauded in the study, with the Chevy Suburban coming in second place and the Tahoe coming in sixth.

First Look at the 2020 GMC Acadia, Coming this Fall

The GMC Acadia three-row crossover will return in the 2020 model year with new, bolder styling, new powertrains with improved performance, and better technology, making it a competitive SUV within its segment.

Outside, the 2020 Acadia has been redesigned with more rugged styling, including a new grille with sharper lines and LED headlights. This updated look brings the Acadia more in line with the rest of the GMC lineup and reflects its impressive capabilities.

The new Acadia will be available at four trim levels, the highest of which is the luxury Denali trim available across the GMC lineup. The trim levels offer diverse capabilities, like the AT4 trim designed for off-roading, but they all pack smart features.

For instance, the Acadia is equipped with an upgraded GMC Infotainment System, which now lets drivers create a customized user profile that remembers their various preferences, as well as new satellite navigation. The new Acadia will also offer wireless charging and a camera with higher definition than ever.

Replacing the old six-speed automatic transmission is a new nine-speed, which is paired with all engine options, including the new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 GMC Acadia keeps its standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine and the available 3.6-liter V6.

Distract yourself from the anticipation of waiting for the 2020 GMC Acadia when you stop by Curry Auto Center to test-drive the 2019 Acadia models we have on our lot.
