MANHATTAN, Kan., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The year has just begun, yet some of the newest 2015 models are already rolling into automotive dealerships across the nation, such as Briggs Buick GMC. The Manhattan-based dealership recently received a shipment of two brand-new 2015 GMC models including the 2015 GMC Yukon and the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD. To help consumers research both of the vehicles, Briggs Buick GMC has highlighted both of the models on their informative blog.
One of the most anticipated new models of the year was undoubtedly the 2015 GMC Yukon which received a number of upgrades including crucial engine refinements that have significantly increased the full-size SUV's fuel economy. According to recently released EPA estimates, the base 5.3-liter EcoTec3 engine of the GMC Yukon is capable of delivering 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. It's a seven percent increase from the Yukon's previous city fuel economy ratings, and a 10 percent increase from past highway ratings.
The 6.2-liter V-8 engine found in the Denali trims of both the Yukon and the Yukon XL has also been refined for the 2015 model year. The upgrades allow the 420-horsepower engine to achieve fuel economy ratings of 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Consumers are sure to appreciate that the ratings of the 2015 Denali models are similar to those found on past models of the base Yukon.
Also new to the Briggs Buick GMC inventory is the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD, which has also been significantly upgraded for the 2015 model year. The heavy-duty pickup will offer the same pair of V-8 engines that it has in the past, however. That includes the 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V-8 which is capable of producing an output of nearly 400 horsepower and over 750 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful engine in the segment.
Consumers interested in learning more about any of the new 2015 GMC models currently available at Briggs Buick GMC are encouraged to visit the dealership's website at www.briggsbuickgmc.com.
