The 2022 GMC Yukon arrives as the second model year for the all-new fifth-generation SUV, the latter of which made its debut for the 2021 model year in January of 2020. Among the updates and changes implemented for the 2022 model year is standard Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
Previously, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning was equipped as standard on all trim levels of the 2021 GMC Yukon with the exception of the SLE. The 2021 GMC Yukon SLE offered Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning as part of the GMC Pro Safety Plus package (RPO code WPD), which also included the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert (UKC)
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (UFG)
The following safety tech features were already equipped as standard on all trim levels of the 2021 GMC Yukon, and continue to come equipped as standard with the 2022 GMC Yukon (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Automatic Emergency Braking (UHY)
- Forward Collision Alert (UEU)
- Front and Rear Park Assist (UD5)
- Following Distance Indicator (UE4)
- Front Pedestrian Braking (UKJ)
- IntelliBeam headlamps (TQ5)
Further updates for the 2022 GMC Yukon include a new standard 12-inch digital driver information center, as GM Authority covered previously. Tagged with RPO code UDV, the new 12-inch digital driver information center replaces the 8-inch Diagonal Multi-Color Driver Information Center (RPO code UHS) equipped by the 2021 GMC Yukon.
The 2022 GMC Yukon also opens up availability of the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine for the AT4 off-roader trim level. Offered as the most-powerful engine in the fifth-gen GMC Yukon lineup, the L87 is rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
