GMC is celebrating 25 years of the Yukon nameplate, but for some reason, the spoils head to the Middle East exclusively. The brand has announced the GMC Yukon 25th Anniversary special edition with a few small nods to mark the nameplate’s milestone.
The limited-edition model adds bright chrome accents and body side moldings. They include chrome mirror caps, chrome accessory grille inserts, chrome door handles. The exhaust tip also receives a splash of chrome, as does the tow hook. Buyers may choose from 20- or 22-inch aluminum wheels.
In special-edition tradition, the celebratory Yukon also receives a 25th Anniversary badge.
GMC Middle East also introduced an updated Yukon Denali. The SUV gains a new front grille and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
As far as special editions go, this 25th Anniversary model doesn’t appear to be all that special. Perhaps it’s the reason why GMC’s home market of North America will skip the model.
