Chrome-Trimmed 2016 GMC Yukon SLT Premium Edition On Sale this Summer
Today GMC revealed the 2016 Yukon SLT Premium Edition, a special, chrome-trimmed version of the popular SUV. The premium upgrade will be available this summer on 2016 Yukon and Yukon XL models.
Features of the Premium Edition include special 22-inch chrome-wheels, a uniquely designed chrome grille, bright chrome body-side moldings, and a polished exhaust tip.
“The new Yukon SLT Premium Edition adds distinction and personalized style to the already well-appointed Yukon SLT model,” said GMC marketing executive Stu Pierce. “For discerning customers seeking uncompromising capability and unparalleled refinement in a full-size SUV, Yukon SLT Premium Edition delivers with the latest in technologies, amenities and a unique and premium style.”
Yukon and Yukon XL SLT models are equipped with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that yields an EPA-estimated 23 highway mpg (on 2WD models), achieving the segment’s best V8 fuel economy.
Other features on SLT models include standard fold-flat second- and third-row seats that enhance cargo space (including an optional power-folding feature), power rear liftgate with multiple programmable height settings and hands-free operation, wireless phone charging, standard 8-inch-diagonal color touch-screen radio with IntelliLink and available navigation, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection compatibility. The Yukon also boasts 8,500-lb. max trailering capability, while the Yukon XL manages 8,300-lb. max trailering.
The Yukon lineup also incorporates an impressive array of safety technologies, including an advanced forward radar system. The Yukon also offers the segment’s only Front Center Air Bag (on models with front bucket seats), which deploys from the inboard side of the driver’s seat, inflating between the driver and front passenger to provide additional protection for both driver and front passenger in side impacts.
