IntelliChoice Picks Yukon Over Other Full-Size SUVs Based on Lower Costs of Ownership
DETROIT – GMC Yukon took top honors in the full-size SUV category of IntelliChoice’s 2011 Best Overall Values of the Year (BOVY) awards, announced Saturday at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) convention in San Francisco.
Yukon is one of 21 BOVY segment winners this year and represents
IntelliChoice’s “best value” pick among full-size SUVs, based on its
analysis of ownership costs, including depreciation, maintenance,
repairs, fuel, fees, financing and insurance.
“This year’s IntelliChoice ‘Best Overall Value’ honor reconfirms
what Consumer Guide said about the Yukon last year – that it’s a ‘best
buy,’” said Brian Sweeney, general manager of Buick GMC. “Today’s
consumers are looking for vehicles that will provide the best value for
their money, which is what we strive to accomplish with GMC vehicles.
This award proves that we are achieving our goal.”
GMC has built trucks since 1902, and is one of the industry's
healthiest brands. Today GMC is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient
trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and
Acadia crossover. The new GMC Sierra Heavy Duty pickups are the most
capable and powerful trucks in the market. Innovation and engineering
excellence are woven into all GMCs, including the Yukon and Yukon XL
and full line of Sierra pickups. Today GMC is the only manufacturer
offering three full-size hybrid trucks. Details on all GMC models are
