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

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.
