2020 GMC Yukon Exterior and Dimensions

GMC Yukon Exterior Design Rating

2020 Yukon Exterior

When it comes to the exterior design of the 2020 Yukon, GMC clearly hasn't received the memo. The design can best be described as basic and brutish and shrugs off any sort of design flair in favor of the traditional American SUV look. To some, this bold but aging look, represents the quintessential SUV, and you can't really fault them - but just look at the Ford Explorer: it makes the Yukon look ancient. GMC tries to hide the Yukon's aging face under a mountain of bling, which includes massive wheels, chrome trimmings and badging that adds a sense of modernity, but not much. The standard wheel size is 18-inches, and Denali cars get 20-inch rollers, but for those who like to ruin ride quality, a set of 22-inch wheels is also on offer. Base cars get halogen headlights while the Denali gets high-intensity discharge projector-beam units. Features such as a hands-free power liftgate on SLT models and above makes the exterior of the 2020 Yukon more livable.

Exterior Colors

Driving a large SUV is one of the most significant status symbols in American culture, and signifies that you have made a success of your life: if you drive a big black SUV, you're the man. But soccer moms and those less concerned with their status in life also drive SUVs, so a balance between bling and mundane needs to be struck. GMC does it well, and offers multiple colors for the Yukon. The only no-cost option available is Summit White; after that, GMC will start charging extra. Metallic colors include Dark Sapphire Blue, Satin Steel, and Smokey Quartz, all for $495. If you want to show off your metal, you can opt for the White Frost Tricoat for $1,095, a color that isn't available on the base SLE.
