The GMC Yukon brings spacious utility and capable toughness to the full-size SUV segment, but drivers can get a little extra out of the Yukon for the 2019 model year. The two new GMC Yukon Graphite Editions offer owners stylish appearance upgrades and performance tweaks, depending on whether they choose the standard Graphite Edition or the Graphite Performance Edition
The Yukon Graphite Edition features a sleek, dark look to the exterior, with add-ons such as a black chrome grille mesh insert, black chrome fog lamp surrounds, black roof rails and assist steps, and other black accents, as well as 22-inch bright machined wheels.
For the more performance-minded driver, the Graphite Performance Edition takes all of the above and adds an upgraded 6.2-liter V8 engine. It is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, as well as Magnetic Ride Control, gloss-black wheels, a trailer brake controller, active noise cancellation, and enhanced tech and connectivity in the interior.
The GMC Yukon already has a reputation for its upscale style and amenities, and senior marketing manager for GMC Trucks and Full-Size SUVs Stu Pierce is confident the new editions will “[build] on the commanding road presence and inherent capabilities of the Yukon.” The 2019 GMC Yukon Graphite Editions will be available in the U.S. sometime this summer.
