This GMC Yukon Is Now A Convertible Made For Hunting

Offbeat / Comments

It certainly qualifies as strange.

When you look at a large SUV like the GMC Yukon, you likely imagine it as part of a motorcade, as a machine for taking your family on a comfortable road trip, or simply as a symbol of success. It's always been an expensive vehicle, so it may come as quite a surprise to see that the one depicted below has been converted into a hunting convertible by Newport Convertible Engineering, a company that has a taste for the unusual. In the past, the company has chopped the roof off of a Tesla Model 3, but this conversion here is even odder.

The end result of this GMC Yukon convertible is something that looks like a pickup in some ways, but what's truly unusual is that it has been built with the purpose of hunting in mind. After all, it's surely easier to aim a hunting rifle out of a car if you don't have to stick the barrel through a window. We imagine that a full 360-degree field of view is also advantageous. We don't have specific details on this build, but it appears that the Yukon has a folding soft-top and the ability to elevate the second row of seating for better vantage points.

If you're wondering who would spend actual money on such a thing, it seems that the hunting convertible SUV is rather popular, as Newport Convertible Engineering has built similar vehicles based on the Chevy Suburban, Nissan Patrol, and Toyota Land Cruiser to take advantage of the falcon hunting industry in the Middle East. With such clientele and with such an extensive project being no mean feat, you can be sure that such a conversion is not cheap. No exact pricing is available, but if you're looking to convert anything into a convertible, NCE will happily lighten your wallet to give you a one-of-a-kind machine.
