The 2022 GMC Yukon will be available with a new Denali Performance Black Package, GM Authority can confirm.
The Denali Performance Black Package, tagged with RPO code RGF, is an LPO-level/dealer-installed equipment group that brings a number of sport-inspired components to the full-size SUV, including:
- 22-inch 6-Spoke Low Gloss Black Wheels with Machined Accents, LPO (RPO SEV)
- Black GMC emblems, LPO (RPO SFZ)
- Black nameplate, LPO (RPO RIK)
- Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers, LPO (RPO 5JL)
The Denali Performance Black Package will only be available to order on the 2022 GMC Yukon Denali and the extended wheelbase 2022 GMC Yukon Denali XL. The equipment group will be late availability for the 2022 model year, however, meaning it will arrive sometime after the vehicle’s initial launch. It’s not clear when GM plans to add this equipment pack to the vehicle’s order books, nor how much it plans to charge customers for it.
GM will apply a number of small changes to the 2022 GMC Yukon, which represents the second model year of the fifth generation of the SUV. For starters, the 2022 Yukon will do away with the Dark Sky Metallic and Smokey Quartz Metallic exterior colors and will add Redwood Metallic to the order books. The SUV will also now come standard Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and a new 12-inch digital instrument cluster.
From 2022, customers will also be able to order the off-road focused GMC Yukon AT4 with the 6.2L L87 V8 engine. Previously, the GMC Yukon AT4 was only available to order with the 5.3L L84 V8 engine. The 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 will still not be available to order with the 3.0L LM2 Duramax turbodiesel inline-six engine, however, as the AT4’s unique front fascia design does not allow for the engine to be used.
