 GMC Truck Review: 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 - Edmunds.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 is a solid truck in terms of its drivetrain, roomy interior and unique features, but the competitors have it beat when it comes to interior design and overall refinement.
Several engine choices are available for the 2006 GMC Sierra, ranging from a 195-horsepower, 4.3-liter V6 to a 345-hp, 6.0-liter V8 in the Denali and VortecMAX package.
The GMC Sierra 1500 is comfortable enough to be a daily driver, yet it's still powerful enough to use as a dedicated work truck.

 2007 GMC Yukon XL Review — Edmunds.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
As one of GM's triplets in its full-size SUV family, the GMC Yukon XL bridges the gap between the somewhat plain Chevy Suburban and the over-the-top Cadillac Escalade ESV.
GMC claims that body stiffness has been increased significantly, and the old front torsion-bar suspension has been ditched in favor of a more supple coil-spring layout.

 Carpages.ca - 2007 GMC Yukon XL Preview
A replacement for GMC's full-size Yukon XL is finally here and the wait appears to have been well worth it.
Engine idle noise and highway noise were also targets of the chassis engineers who gave the Yukon an entirely new frame assembly with increased strength and structure over the GMT800 series architecture.
The smooth and refined engine, which effortlessly churns-out 340 foot-pounds of torque, did a commendable job of hustling the Tahoe up steep inclines and past slower highway traffic while never exposing whether it may be running on only four of its eight cylinders to conserve fuel.

Ideally, either a Cadillac Acadia-like vehicle with the huge cargo space or the Denali preferably either Hybrid of V8 as the V6 seems underpowered but I could deal with thta if it were Hybrid, otherwise just give me the V8 with only half the cylinders running when you don't need the other half.

 Maintaining GM Northstar V8 Engine, Larry Carley, Underhood Service, October 2002
In 1994, the first Northstar V8 (L37) was joined by a second version (LD8) with a different cam profile that lowered peak horsepower slightly to 270 hp but increased torque output in the lower rpm range for improved throttle response and quick acceleration.
The L47 4.0L V8 was essentially the same engine as the larger 4.6L V8 but with a smaller bore size (87mm vs. 93mm).
The two basic versions of the 4.6L V8 (275 and 300 hp) are still being used in model year 2003, and there are no plans to replace this engine in the immediate future.

In recent years GMC has been distancing itself from Chevrolet with a more upscale product line that sought to attract customers looking for a little extra refinement in their trucks and SUVs.
With the Yukon Denali and Denali XL, GMC applied that idea to its own standard Yukons and produced SUVs that incorporate numerous luxury features and distinctive design cues that set them apart from the crowd.
GMC also claims that the all-wheel-drive configuration results in improved driveline durability, better tire-wear characteristics, and a more nimble handling feel.
