After receiving a major makeover in the last year, we can expect GMC to bring its 2022 Yukon only with some small changes on the tech front. Therefore, for the 2022 GMC Yukon buyers, we need to summarize all the features that come as standard and optional. So, here goes a model overview of the 2022 GMC Yukon series.
What is Offered for the 2022 Model Year Edition Buyers?
As per the information shared with us by the Palmyra GMC dealer, all the 2022 GMC Yukon model series continue to be offered in 4 trims: SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali. All the models now get a new 12.0-inch Driver Information Center display unit as standard. It is connected to a yet new infotainment interface shared with Google. The buyers of the 2022 GMC Yukon models must also take a look at the new Denali Performance Black Package which can be installed on all 2022 Yukon models. Apart from all this, the buyers who have already focused their minds on the off-road-specialist AT4 model can enjoy the spicy performance of the newly enabled 6.2L V-8 engine making 420-hp.
Stepping up to the range-topping Denali trim will beget the buyers a power-sliding center console as standard which was earlier listed under the optional fittings. Moreover, GMC also allows you to paint your Yukon model with a new shade named Redwood Metallic.
However, mechanically, the new 2022 model year edition of the GMC Yukon remains mostly unchanged while maintaining a higher level of safety with the help of the already installed driver assistance features as standard. Likewise, the buyers of each 2022 GMC Yukon model will also get to enjoy a plethora of interior features that also includes plenty of infotainment components.
The 2022 GMC Yukon series that is consistent with trims like SLE, SLT, and AT4 comes powered by a 5.3L V8 engine which is also set as the standard to move the SUV with ease, having 355 horsepower at its disposal. The higher trim Denali also gets an exclusive 6.2L V8 engine that dominates the roads with its gushing 420 hp. On the other hand, the AT4 models are offered an optional powerplant of 6.2-liter V8 capacity.
All the engine variants are clubbed with a 10-speed automatic transmission set both as rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. Apart from that, the new 12-inch driver information display set comes with a new analog speedometer system and a rev counter, which are made standard right from the base trim model STL.
Stepping up to the SLE trim will add to the standard list of features, a remote start, pairs of 18-inch alloy wheels, a complete set of LED exterior lighting, keyless entry/ignition, and rain-sensing wipers. The interiors come equipped with a 3-zone automatic climate control system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth upholstered seating, power-adjustable seats for the front passengers, and many more.
For the off-road enthusiasts, GMC has prepared the Yukon AT4 models with a two-speed transfer case, pairs of 20-inch wheels fitted with all-terrain tires, a couple of underbody skid plates, as well as an air suspension, offered as an optional upgrade, confirmed the promotional team of the famous GMC dealer serving Palmyra.
