GMC's next-generation Yukon has been spied, in upmarket Denali guise. The new Yukon is set to join the rest of General Motors' redesigned full-size SUVs in showrooms next year.

Another GM vehicle headed to showrooms next year is the true successor to the much-loved Cadillac CTS-V. It's based on the CT5 and most likely fitted with the Cadillac-exclusive 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 known as the Blackwing.

Kia has a next-generation Optima on its hands, only the vehicle may be sold under a new name when it arrives in showrooms next year. Regardless of what it is called, the new mid-size sedan is quite the looker.
