2022 GMC Yukon AT4 Gets Optional 6.2L V8 Engine13
The 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 will be available to order with the GM 6.2L L87 V8 engine, GM Authority can confirm.
For 2021, the GMC Yukon AT4 was only available to order with the 5.3L L84 V8 engine. That will change for the 2022 model year, however, with GM set to offer the 6.2L L87 V8 on the off-road-focused trim level for the first time. The 6.2L L87 V8 is the most powerful engine available in the GMC Yukon, offering up 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
It’s worth noting the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 will still not be available to order with the 3.0L LM2 Duramax turbodiesel inline-six engine. As we reported previously, the unique front fascia design on the AT4 obstructs the intercooler and intercooler piping needed for the diesel engine, so it cannot be offered in conjunction with this trim level.
Whether it features the 5.3L L84 V8 or 6.2L L87 V8, all GMC Yukon AT4 models feature the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, along with a standard two-speed active electronic Autotrac transfer case.
In addition to its unique front fascia, the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 also comes standard with 20-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear All-Terrain tires, red front tow hooks, a front underbody skid plate, an off-road inclinometer for the head-up display and a variety of exterior and interior AT4 badges.
Prices for the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 start at $66,795 with the only available 5.3L L84 V8 engine. Pricing for the 2022 Yukon has not yet been announced, so it’s not clear what kind of price premium the L87 V8 will have over the L84 V8. In the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali, which is currently the only trim available with the L87 V8, the larger engine carries a $1,625 price premium over the standard 3.0L LM2 diesel.
We expect more details on the 2022 GMC Yukon to come to light in the near future, so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for ongoing GMC Yukon news, GMC news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.

About f’ing time.
Don’t give it to the Chevy version.
How can they not fit the 3.0 in there ? But an engine 2 times the size can?
Airflow is issue not size
You must not know how to read!! Copy/Pasted just for you…. It’s worth noting the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 will still not be available to order with the 3.0L LM2 Duramax turbodiesel inline-six engine. As we reported previously, the unique front fascia design on the AT4 obstructs the intercooler and intercooler piping needed for the diesel engine, so it cannot be offered in conjunction with this trim level.
Next time, finish reading the article!👍🏽 Also if this doesn’t work for you. Go to a dealership and look under the front fascia of both the AT4 and a Yukon SLT. If you can come up with plumbing for the intercooler, I’d suggest you apply with the company as a design engineer smart guy..🤔
I’m bummed as well that their engineers haven’t found a solution to the room issue for the Duramax. It’d be a great combination.
Do not know why they are so stingy with the 6.2 especially with the extra deneros they charge and their cost is minimal over a 5.3
Man, jumped over to read this article in hopes that with the fitment of the 6.2L V8, the 3.0L duramax was going to be available as well. Understand the airflow issues…just seems like they are missing the boat on probably what is the most attractive trim (especially for us non chrome fanatics) by not offering that motor. Oh well…maybe 2023 will bring that option to this trim level. At least the good news for those fans of the gas motor, you can get the big boy in this trim now. I am sure it will be quite popular.
The diesel is the engine to have for this type vehicle. They should have engineered the fit originally with all front ends.
I bought a 2021 Tahoe Z71 with the 5.3, it is severely underpowered and I get trash MPG. I regret falling for the looks of the Z71 and not getting a different trim with the 3.0
If premium was a little cheaper, I would love to have the 6.2
But my wife is happy that I traded in my raptor for the Tahoe. And I’m about to buy a Camry for commuting.
Someone help me
I mean it’s a large SUV not a performance vehicle. If you wanted an SUV that’s just as fast for about the same price I’m confused to why you didn’t just go the Durango R/T, SRT route
I have a 2019 Camry for a commuter. Everybody trashes them but if you want a non turbo w/o a CVT for reliability there is not much competition at the price point. I get low 40’s MPG going 80 on my interstate commute. 203 HP is enough to get the job done. The infotainment is garbage that hopefully Toyo has improved.
China Joe is angwy with you Mawy Bawa. This not rooking too good for combat grobal crimate change…
