The 2022 GMC Yukon follows a complete overhaul for the nameplate introduced with the 2021 model year, with the 2022 model year ushering in only a small handful of updates and changes. Now, unfortunately, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 GMC Yukon is no longer available to order the with power-sliding center console feature.
The full name of the feature in question is power-sliding center floor console with drawer, secure storage, manual sliding armrest and cup holders for second row, and is tagged with RPO code DCH.
It’s currently unclear if the feature’s unavailability for the 2022 GMC Yukon is the result of the ongoing global microchip shortage, or if it’s simply a supplier constraint issue. The feature is also currently unavailable to order with the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban.
The power-sliding center console feature was previously offered as a $350 option for 2022 GMC Yukon SLT and AT4 trim levels, requiring the SLT Luxury Package (RPO code WPL, $2,030) and power-release second row bucket seats (RPO code ATN, $370) for SLT trims, and the power-release second row bucket seats (RPO code ATN, $370) for AT4 trims.
The power-sliding center console feature was also standard on Denali trim levels, but is replaced by the conventional floor console with storage area and removable storage tray (RPO code D07) when equipped with the second-row power 60/40 split-folding bench seats (RPO code ATT) rather than the standard second-row bucket seats (RPO code ATN).
For the moment, units of the 2022 GMC Yukon Denali will get the conventional floor console with storage area and removable storage tray, which means Denali customers will receive $350 credit.
As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Yukon is offered with a trio of engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Under the skin, the GMC Yukon rides on the GM T1 platform, while production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
