GMC left no conceptual stone unturned when it came to redesigning the Yukon for 2015. When the brand claims that every single aspect of the GMC Yukon is updated and improved for the next generation, it’s no exaggeration. The results are incredible: the Yukon comes with a more modern design, a more comfortable interior, and vastly improved fuel efficiency. But there’s another aspect to the new SUV that’s maybe even more appealing to families: its silence.
Premium materials and special engineering allow the Yukon to subvert the stereotype of the loud, hulking family SUV. Michell Shippy, a performance engineer for noise, vibration, and wind noise, explained the philosophy behind the new design.
“Having two young kids that never sleep through the night, I have a strong desire to enjoy peace and quiet on my commute,” Shippy told GMC’s newsroom. “That also helps give me a sharp ear to hone in on the fine details. We’ve made extensive improvements on the new Yukon and the interior quietness is a feature noticeable enough to grab your attention.”
Shippy proclaims the success of the new GMC Yukon with this simple conclusion: “The Yukon is truly a pleasure to drive.” We don’t see why you should just take his word for it, though; come down to Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC and take the 2015 GMC Yukon for a quiet ride yourself!
