The 2022 GMC Yukon arrives as the second model year for the latest fifth-generation vehicle, introducing a few changes and updates over the initial 2021 model year. Among these is a standard 12-inch Driver Information Center.
Previously, all 2021 GMC Yukon models were equipped with the 8-inch Diagonal Multi-Color Driver Information Center, tagged with RPO code UHS.
The 2022 GMC Yukon isn’t the only General Motors model to upgrade to digital instrumentation. As GM Authority covered previously, the up-and-coming 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 will come with a fully digital driver instrument cluster, as will the GMC pickup’s corporate cousin, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500. Both models are set for a refresh late in the 2022 model year.
What’s more, it looks as though there will in fact be two different infotainment screens offered by the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, following in line with the 2021 GMC Yukon, which offers an integrated infotainment screen with the 2021 Yukon Denali, and a stand-up “tablet” style infotainment screen across the rest of the line.
Other updates for the 2022 GMC Yukon include availability of the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine with the off-road-oriented AT4 trim level. The 6.2L V8 L87 is the most-powerful engine available for the GMC Yukon, producing 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Previously, the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 was only available to order with the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine.
The 2022 GMC Yukon follows a complete model overhaul introduced for the 2021 model year, which debuted new exterior styling, a revised cabin space, and the latest technology, including 30 safety and drover convenience features.
