Recently, GMC announced its latest variant of Yukon: the Yukon SLT Premium Edition. The traditional SUV features a few additional enhancements to make it worthy of premium badging, such as the giant 22-inch wheels, chrome accents and unique grille. You can read all about it here.
But, the 2016 GMC Yukon SLT Premium Edition isn’t only for us Americans, GMC has also announced the SUV will be available in Canada as well.
“The new Yukon SLT Premium Edition adds distinction and personalized style to the already well-appointed Yukon SLT model,” said GMC Brand Manager Mark Alger. “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.”
The Premium Edition comes bundled with the usual SLT goodies, too, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, forward radar system and the segment’s only front center airbag, which deploys from the inboard side of the driver’s seat and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants in side impacts.
The Yukon SLT Premium Edition should bridge a fine gap for those not looking to spend Denali dough, and should continue to help move the SUV in Canada. In the first four months of 2016, Yukon sales rose 23-percent.
