GMC Yukon in Columbia SC Receives Satisfaction Award

GMC Yukon in Columbia SC

The GMC Yukon once again takes home industry awards for customer satisfaction and value.

Jim Hudson GMC, the #1 GMC dealership in the state of South Carolina, is thrilled to highlight AutoPacific’s announcement that the GMC Yukon took top honors in the full-size SUV category of their 15th annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.

“Vehicles like the GMC Yukon that score highest in the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are delivering value and satisfaction across a wide range of attributes,” said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “The winners perform well in 48 separate categories that objectively measure the ownership experience.” The awards are based on the firm’s survey of more than 68,000 vehicle owners.

This is not the GMC Yukon’s first trip to the top of the heap, either. Earlier this year, Yukon topped the full-size SUV category of IntelliChoice’s 2011 Best Overall Values of the Year (BOVY) awards, based on analysis of ownership costs, including depreciation, maintenance, repairs, fuel, fees, financing and insurance. Automotive critics also laud the Yukon. Truck Trend magazine recently named GMC Yukon the “Best in Class 2011 Full-Size SUV,” citing the fuel-efficient hybrid model, active fuel management, up-to-nine-passenger seating and 8,200-pound towing capacity as strengths. “A premium truck brand can still represent great value in the market place with outstanding resale values and the lowest cost of ownership,” said John Schwegman, U.S. vice president of GMC Marketing.

GMC Yukon for sale in Columbia SC Wins IntelliChoice Award

Columbia GMC dealer Jim Hudson GMC is pleased to announce that the 2011 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.”

The 2011 GMC Yukon for sale in Columbia offers premium SUV drivers available seating for up to nine with a host of features designed to provide both a touch of luxury and the rugged durability expected of the GMC name. Available heated and ventilated leather front seats provide ample comfort on Columbia’s roads, while the rear seats can be had with a three-passenger bench or two-passenger captain’s chairs that can be heated as well. Second-row occupants can also enjoy the available rear-seat entertainment system (and, on Yukon XL models, the three-passenger third row can receive its own screen). Equipped with the 5.3L Vortec V8 engine, Yukon can tow up to 8,500 pounds, while Yukon Denali’s 6.2L V8 provides effortless acceleration both around the city and on the highway.

Style abounds in the GMC Yukon, with a choice of standard 17-inch aluminum wheels all the way up to chrome 22-inch wheels available. (Yukon Denali models come standard with 20-inch chrome wheels.) Available power-retractable assist steps ease entry and exit from the well-appointed interior, with available touchscreen DVD-based navigation and tri-zone automatic climate control to keep you comfortable and on course.

GMC Yukon in Columbia SC Benefits From Advanced Antenna Testing

GMC Yukon Denali Antenna Testing for Columbia SC

Jim Hudson GMC, the premier Columbia GMC dealer, is exceptionally proud of the 2011 GMC Yukon Denali, a top choice among full-size luxury SUV buyers in South Carolina.  Yukon Denali’s professional grade engineering extends down to the smallest detail, from the perforated leather seating to the navigation system’s ability to receive GPS signals in adverse conditions.  Whether driving through a mountain pass or a concrete canyon today’s on-the-go drivers shouldn’t have to worry about wireless signal strength, and they won’t when they are behind the wheel of the 2011 GMC Yukon Denali.

In an era where cars and trucks double as online data and information portals, GMC’s engineers have created a first-of-its-kind gigantic signal-testing facility to ensure that data, cellular and other signals remain active in areas where wireless signal strength is limited. The GMC Yukon Denali for sale in Columbia SC is one of the first vehicles to benefit from the technology, which looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.

GM created the world’s first vehicle-sized electronically modulated spherical near-field antenna testing system–or just ATS for short–in partnership with wireless transmission technology giant SATIMO SA (Société d’Applications Technologiques de l’Imagerie Micro-Onde SA). Resembling half of an archway reaching many feet above the Yukon, the $750,000 ATS beams signals from 103 discrete probes down to Yukon placed on a rotating platform.

The data is used to optimize satellite antenna design and placement on GMC’s portfolio of trucks and SUVs.

“There are only two other vehicle antenna validation systems like this anywhere in the world,” said Janalee Graham, who runs testing for GMC using the ATS arch. “And ours was the first.

“The ATS system lets us test the antenna systems on the GMC Yukon Denali in virtually every possible real-world condition,” said Graham. “What would take other automakers days of testing can be done in minutes with this system.”

Graham confesses to dragging her family to remote parts of the country to spot test XM satellite radio and OnStar signals on GMC trucks and SUVs, saying “they’ve been unwittingly pulled into my antenna obsession on several occasions while traveling.”  (A three-month trial of XM Satellite Radio and six months of OnStar with turn-by-turn navigation is standard equipment on all Yukon models.)

GM’s antenna testing system is one of many behind-the-scenes facilities that make the 2011 GMC Yukon Denali a technology leader. Other technologies available on the 2011 GMC Yukon Denali, such as regenerative braking and active fuel management, are designed to provide efficiency, refinement and comfort without sacrificing professional grade capability.
