2023 Yukon Exterior

The latest GMC Yukon is a significant improvement over its predecessor in terms of its appearance. It's got more presence than before, especially thanks to the enlarged grille and distinctive headlights. All models come with standard LED technology for the headlamps, foglights, daytime running lights, and taillights. The base model makes do with 18-inch alloys, whereas the rest of the lineup has larger 20-inch items and can be optioned with 22s, which the flagship Denali Ultimate gets as standard. On the rugged AT4, you'll find red recovery hooks and a performance front skid plate. A panoramic power sunroof is standard on the Denali Ultimate and available on most other trims, save for the SLE. The Denali boasts Satin chrome bodyside moldings and a unique grille and the Denali Ultimate has Vader bodyside moldings.

The Yukon AT4, in particular, offers very attractive exterior styling, with black roof rails, a modified front fascia to improve its approach angle, and six-spoke machined 20-inch wheels with Carbon Grey Metallic inserts and all-terrain tires.

There's nothing dainty about the latest Yukon. The 120.9-inch wheelbase is concealed in a body with a length of 210 inches, so it's easily longer than its predecessor. The width is 81 inches without the mirrors and the height is 76.5 inches. The best approach/breakover/departure angles in the lineup are 34.5/22/22.5 degrees, respectively, belonging to the AT4 with Air Ride. As for ground clearance, this varies between eight and ten inches.

The lightest model is the one equipped with rear-wheel drive and the 5.3-liter V8 at 5,490 pounds. With the diesel engine and four-wheel drive, that number increases to 5,922 lbs.
