Silverado and Sierra get the 6.2 in the MaxTow package, along with a larger rear axle. There is a 5.3 MaxTow as well.

First Tow

Took our first trip with the '15 Yukon this week - 786 miles from SW Michigan to Brown County, Indiana. Pulling the 25fb we averaged 12.1 mpg for the trip. The best 25 mile stretch was 15.6 and the best 50 miles were 14.9. It handles well and hill descent control works well. This mileage is a 20% + improvement over my '06 Grand Cherokee 5.7.

Thanks for the update, how did it handle? Did you get the hitch dialed in? The one and only picture I saw looked like the back end of the Yukon might have been a little high?
Again, great looking rig.

It handled well in some pretty heavy winds at times. I did get the Reese where it needs to be. That picture gives the impression that the trailer is high in the nose but it is spot on level. I don't know if it is the slight slope to the rear of the Yukon or the camera. The self levelers on the Yukon don't budge either as long as I hook up with the engine on. And, on the scales there is a difference of just over 100 pounds between the front and rear axles so I think that's about as good as I'm going to get it.

Yeah, sounds like you've got it just about as close as it's going to get. I'm a little jealous of your new ride; we're getting a larger trailer so we're going to stick with the 3/4 ton we already have.

I bought a 2014 Sierra 1/2 ton 5.3 ecotec 34 MPG already and not broken in yet not to mention all the other things integrated into the built in trailer brake like trailer sway control, and advanced hill decent control. Far superior truck to my old 05 silverado Click image for larger version

Don't get excited. Peter is not getting 34MPG in the U.S. Imperial gallons and KM's. If I had gotten 34MPG with mine I would have had second thoughts about moving to a 2500 Duramax

A small mistake I calculated it out to a Metric gallon I am consistently getting 8.6 liters per 100 kilometers = 32.846 miles per imperial gallon.
Keep in mind that is not towing but daily highway milage driving the speed limit of 100kph I even double checked it with fuel reciepts and the computer is almost exactly on
