GMC Yukon XL 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but GMC Yukon XL 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Yukon XL zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Yukon XL 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your GMC Yukon XL engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

It might be difficult to reproduce official GMC Yukon XL 0-60 times driving your own car, as measuring accuracy of GMC Yukon XL acceleration from 0 to 60 depends on the transmission type or such variables as wind, weather conditions, tire traction or even weight of the rim. For the safety of the public, 0-60 times are often recorded by professional drivers on the closed racing tracks or dragstrips.

The good news is you can always soup up your car to have the best drag times. The easiest way is chip-tuning. The Engine of GMC Yukon XL is equipped with an engine management system (EMS)/Engine Control Unit (ECU) which can be modified to different settings, producing different performance levels and boosting Yukon XL\'s horsepower.

Right now we are well on course to post the data on transmission and engine on the GMC Yukon XL acceleration page of our website. We also have plans to make it possible for any visitor of the website to add their own custom data on GMC Yukon XL acceleration.
