2022 GMC Yukon & Yukon XL

There are not many full-size SUVs on the market that can match the performance, capability, and refinement offered by the 2022 GMC Yukon and the longer and most spacious 2022 GMC Yukon XL. The Yukon name has been a leader in the SUV segment for its ability to accommodate a lot of people as well as a lot of cargo. It also offers towing abilities that rival many full-size pickup trucks, making it perfect for active families. Online expert reviews have praised the 2022 Yukon models for their quiet and comfortable interior, responsive climate control system, and a broad range of powertrains.

Follow along with Terra Nova Motors as we take a closer look at both versions of the 2022 GMC Yukon.

Interior Design & Features

Premium Interior Materials

There is simply no such thing as a run-of-the-mill GMC platform. Every available 2022 Yukon and Yukon XL trim grade has something unique to offer customers. However, the top-of-the-line Denali model delivers several exclusive elements found throughout the SUV’s interior. Some of these exclusive features include several perforated leather upholstery options, fractal stitching, authentic wood details, and pivoting wood door in the lower centre console. The Denali models offer four interior colour options:

  • Teak/Light Shale
  • Dark Walnut/Jet Black
  • Brownstone/Jet Black
  • Jet Black/Jet Black

Yukon AT4 Interior Features

A platform as capable as the 2022 Yukon and Yukon XL AT4 requires a special set of interior features. The off-road-ready AT4 trim grade features a Jet Black interior with Brandy accents and dark brushed aluminum details. After a day on the trails, the person behind the wheel might need a little extra self-care. The 2022 AT4 model of the Yukon and Yukon XL is equipped with heated and ventilated front seats.

Performance & Capability

GMC Yukon Performance Specs

Owners of the 2022 GMC Yukon or Yukon XL will never be at a loss for performance among the platform’s three available engine options, and all of them are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Buyers choosing the SLE, STL, or Denali trims can opt to have the Duramax turbodiesel engine equipped.

  • Traction Select System

  • Hill Start Assist
  • Magnetic Ride Control

Technology

Innovative HUD System

It can be dangerous for drivers to take their eyes off the road — even for a moment. GMC has made a 15-inch multicolour heads-up display available on some versions of the 2022 Yukon and Yukon XL. The system projects several pieces of information on the windshield where the driver can easily see it, without being distracting. Some of the info that the heads-up disply can show includes:

  • Speed limit/current speed
  • Audio information
  • Lane Keep Assist Warning
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Off-road telemetry

 

Connectivity & Entertainment Systems

There is no doubt that both versions of the 2022 GMC Yukon are among the most technologically advanced SUVs on the market today. The Premium GMC Infotainment system is standard equipment on every 2022 Yukon trim grade and every model will offer Google Built-In technology. The new partnership with Google allows for better compatible device integration and improved voice-recognition capability. Some of the other standard technology includes:

  • Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay
  • Wireless Android Auto

 

Safety

Multiple Camera Views

Maneuvering the 2022 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL just got a little easier thanks to the numerous camera views that can be available with the latest version of the SUV. When the 2022 Yukon is properly equipped, drivers can look at up to 13 different camera angles via the touchscreen on the centre stack. Each view will help the person behind the wheel avoid obstacles. Additionally, the Rear Camera Mirror helps with backing up.

GMC Pro Safety Plus

It is no longer good enough for a vehicle to simply be able to safely absorb an impact to protect its occupants. There are too many variables in that equation. Modern safety technology, like GMC Pro Safety Plus, takes the next logical step by giving drivers the ability to potentially avoid accidents from happening in the first place. The available systems that make up GMC Pro Safety Plus include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Change Alert
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

What’s New From the 2021 GMC Yukon?

GMC recently redesigned the Yukon family of SUVs in 2021, meaning there aren’t many cosmetic upgrades made to the 2022 model. However, that isn’t to say there have been no changes made to the 2022 Yukon models. The biggest upgrade applied to the SUV is in the technological arena. GMC’s partnership with Google will be a game-changer by making device compatibility easier and enhancing voice-recognition capability. Additionally, the 6.2-litre V-8 engine is an available option for the AT4 trim grade.
