2018 GMC Yukon Denali Gets Ford’s DNA To Move Forward

By  | 

GM and Ford are two of the biggest rivals in the automotive industry so how can the upcoming GMC Yukon Denali get equipped with a ‘Ford-tainted’ part? Well, despite the bitter relationship of GM and Ford, there are times where both companies work together to create something special.

In the GMC Yukon Denali’s case, the vehicle will be adopting the 10-speed automatic gearbox that was developed by both GM and Ford. The gearbox was launched very recently ago and it is rated to offer the best power management around.

With the 10-speed automatic shifters, the Yukon Denali can acquire greater efficiency due to the lower numerical top gear ratio. Such a thing will also bring out the best of the 6.2L V8 which the Yukon Denali will run on.

Whether this will be enough to make the large SUV exciting again remains to be answered but at least we know that the vehicle is going in the right direction.
