2003 Yukon XL Denali that I swapped an LLY Duramax turbo diesel & Allison 1000 into.
This combination was never offered from GM. They never brought their great Duramax Turbo Diesel engine into their
full size SUV line-up.
Yukon XL had 156k on it before the swap, and is in very respectable condition. Paint is metallic gray with light
gray two tone interior. Exterior and interior of my Yukon is really nice. There are a few minor cosmetic blemishes,
a few paint scratches and very minor dings, but overall the vehicle is in quite good shape. It is loaded like all
the Denalis are, heated front and rear seats, power leather, DVD player, BOSE sound system, Dual-zone HVAC with
rear A/C system, OnStar, XM, etc. This is a 2nd row bench configuration.
The engine was out of a 2005 Silverado 2500HD, with 109k on it now. Same for the Allison transmission and 11.5"
rear axle.
I really took my time doing this swap, there was a lot of work involved.
These Denali package Yukons come only as half tons, so I purchased a 3/4 ton frame to hold the Yukon and the
Duramax together. This gives the vehicle a full 3/4 ton frame, suspension, axles & brakes so that it is truly
capable of handling heavy loads the Duramax was designed to pull. The rear axle is from the Silverado, so it is the
11.5" GM 14-bolt full floating axle with a mechanical locker.
This vehicle has already gone through a Washington state inspection and I have all paperwork in hand to transfer a
free and clear title into the new owner's name.
Body: 2003 Yukon XL Denali
Engine: 2005 (LLY) Duramax turbo diesel (305hp - 605lb-ft)
Transmission: Allison 1000 5-speed automatic
Rear Axle: 11.5" GM 14 bolt full float 3.73 ratio with G80 locker
Front Axle: 9.5" IFS
265/75R16 Mud Terrain tires with lots of tread left.
Frame: 3/4 ton
Vehicle is fully serviced and ready to go. I replaced the problematic GM transmission cooler lines with Alligator
performance lines that won't leak, it has fresh oil & filter, fuel filter, transmission fluid and filter, and fresh
engine coolant.
100% transparency on this sale. There is currently a small oil leak. I've just been too busy to look at it.
These low mileage pre-2007 emissions diesels are getting tough to find. This Duramax has no DPF, no DEF fluid, no
SCR. No emissions headaches to worry about. Just tons of power, excellent reliability and great mileage.
Everything on this rig works, and works well. Seats 8 people in comfort, and would safely and easily tow 12k lbs up
over the pass.
A/C just recharged.
Fuel economy on this rig is excellent, relatively speaking. With a conservative driver, expect about 15 in town,
and 22 on the highway. I've been averaging about 19.5 on my work commute of a mix of stop and go and highway. Road
trip steady cruising at 60-65mph, I've seen 24MPG. That's really good considering what this vehicle is capable of.
This LLY Duramax is mostly stock and untouched. The only non-stock parts are a cold air intake, and a 4" exhaust.
No software reprogramming has been done. Runs very well. Pulls strong just like it should.
This is a very rare find. I've built a couple of these swaps, never on a Denali before.
Serious inquiries only. This vehicle is located in Monroe, Washington state

GM confirms 2015 Silverado, Sierra to get 8-speed automatic

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 13:59:00 EST

When viewed alongside the next Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500, there is one thing that seems to be missing from the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Where the F-150 will rely on turbocharging and aluminum architecture and the Ram sports an eight-speed automatic and an air suspension, the General Motors twins lack a big, calling-card feature. They're very good, very refined trucks, but one could argue that they're not terribly innovative.
And while it might not be as flashy a feature as air suspension or a lightweight skin, the Silverado and Sierra will get their own eight-speed automatic for 2015, a transmission that will be paired with the company's Ecotec3 6.2-liter V8. The new cogswapper will also find its way into the GMC Yukon Denali, but for now, there's no indication why the Cadillac Escalade, Suburban, Tahoe and standard Yukon are being left out.
According to GM, the new gearbox is about the same size and weight as the current Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed. By the time the new powertrain combination enters production late this year, the EPA will almost certainly have gotten around to certifying the vehicles' fuel efficiency. Until then, feel free to speculate. The current Silverado with the 6.2 and six-speed auto returns 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 on the highway. How much do you think the eight-speed will improve those figures? Scroll down for the official press blast from General Motors, and then head into Comments.

UPDATE: The trucks have been revealed. Click here for all of the official details.
As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.

GM appears to repurpose Saturn Outlook parts on new Acadia

Thu, 09 Feb 2012 12:58:00 EST

General Motors unveiled the company's refreshed GMC Acadia at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show yesterday, and if you were paying attention, you may have noticed something curious about the vehicle. While the new Acadia looks considerably better than its predecessor, a few components of the design looked more than a little familiar. Upon closer observation, it appears that GM has simply repurposed elements of the now defunct Saturn Outlook crossover on the 2013 Acadia. Both vehicles seem to share the same wrap-around rear glass, back hatch, tail light openings and exaggerated, squared-off fender arches.
While the vehicles are differentiated by badging, tail lamps and a rear valance, there's no denying the similarities toward the vehicle's rear. Up front, both share similar fenders, though adjustments have been made for the varying headlight designs.
That's good news if you just can't imagine life without the Saturn Outlook.
