Car and Driver: Not Quite a Denali: GMC Yukon SLT Premium Edition Ladles on the Chrome


Recommended Posts

2016 GMC Yukon SLT Premium Edition


GMC has decided that heaping portions of chrome should no longer be exclusive to its top Denali trim levels. A new Premium Edition model for the Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs is essentially an appearance package that brings some more shiny bits down to the mid-level SLT trim.


The biggest difference is a chrome grille with horizontal slats that’s exclusive to this special-edition model. It’s decidedly shinier and more imposing than the standard SLT’s simplier grille, and a bit more tough-looking than the Yukon Denali’s honeycomb-mesh chrome grille. Also on the menu are chrome bodyside moldings, a polished exhaust tip, and 22-inch chrome wheels with a design that’s exclusive to the Premium Edition (a few different 22-inch wheels options are optional for the Yukon SLT, costing between $2900 and $2995).

Buyers of this SLT Premium Edition will miss out on the Denali’s interior upgrades and badge prestige, as well as its standard 6.2-liter V-8 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic. The SLT Premium Edition instead is powered by a 5.3-liter V-8 with a six-speed automatic, which at least does get slightly better fuel economy, at up to 16/23 mpg city/highway. Look for four-wheel drive to be a $3000 option, as it is on the Yukon SLT.


GMC hasn’t yet said how much this extra-reflective Yukon costs, but expect it to be a bit more than a standard Yukon SLT, which stickers for $58,195 with rear-wheel drive, while an equivalent XL version starts at $60,895. The special-edition models will go on sale later this summer; look for official pricing to come within the next few weeks.
