The spy images of the 2024 GMC Yukon SUV have been released to the public, and the forthcoming SUV is covered with a heavy layer of camouflage. We were able to spot some changes, and the upgraded version will feature an antenna mounted on the roof fin with a fresh look.
In addition, the fascia’s at the front and rear of the vehicle have been changed as well, featuring a new grille and taillights. It is possible that GM’s automated driving system, Ultra Cruise, will be part of this model. In 95 percent of driving scenarios, this technology will outperform the current GM Super Cruise system.
2024 GMC Yukon Facelift
Despite its enormous dimensions, the 2024 GMC Yukon has a stunning appearance. In terms of appearance, it is fairly refined, and it exudes an aura that is both robust and luxurious. The AT4 grade has a more off-road appearance than the Denali variations due to a reworked front fascia that increases the vehicle’s approach angle. On the other hand, the Denali Ultimate has a more premium appearance.
This trim comes standard with distinctive external characteristics like highlights finished in a dark “Vader Chrome” and bespoke wheels measuring 22 inches in diameter. It’s also worth noting that, like the Ford Expedition, this model gives buyers the option of two alternative wheelbase lengths.
Roomy and Modern Interior
Thanks to its three-row seating design, the GMC will be concentrating on ensuring the Yukon’s interior has sufficient room for passengers. If you find that you still want more space after that, you can go for the XL model that has a stretched out wheelbase.
It is not unusual to see seats for as many as eight individuals in Yukon-based establishments. If you want to sit on the bench seats in the front row, there is enough room for nine passengers, but if you choose to sit in the captain’s chairs in the second row, there is only room for seven passengers. Standard equipment includes a display measuring 10.2 inches as well as wireless connectivity for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In addition to that, there is reception for SiriusXM radio, a digital gauge cluster screen of 12 inches, and six USB ports including the latest C-port.
How Much Bigger Is GMC Yukon XL?
GMC Yukon XL has a wheelbase that is 15 inches longer than the normal vehicle, which adds much more comfort inside. It provides more than 20 cubic feet, despite the fact that the latest Yukon’s size has been increased. The amount of legroom available in the rear seat of Yukon XL is 10 inches better. Also, the capacity of the cargo area is staggering to 122.9 cubic feet in total.
