The 2022 GMC Yukon is the second model year of the all-new fifth-generation SUV nameplate, arriving with just a few changes and updates over the initial 2021 model year. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 GMC Yukon’s Denali Black Package is no longer available to order.
The 2022 GMC Yukon’s Denali Black Package is tagged with RPO code RGF, and was introduced late in the 2021 calendar year. The Denali Black Package was offered as an LPO-level option, which means it was installed by the dealer, rather than at the factory when it was initially produced.
Now, however, GM Authority has learned that 2022 GMC Yukon’s Denali Black Package will be unavailable to order for the remainder of the 2022 model year. The package was introduced in October of 2021, and was only offered for about a month before it was made unavailable starting with November 15th production. The package has been unavailable since.
The Denali Black Package arrived as a replacement for the Denali Performance Black Package, the latter of which had the same RPO code, but never made it to production. When it was available, the 2022 GMC Yukon’s Denali Black Package included the following content (relevant RPO code listed in parentheses):
- Black illuminated GMC emblem (R88)
- Black nameplates (RIK)
- Illuminated front and rear door sill plates (S0M)
- Illuminated mirror GMC emblem (S3I)
- Sport Pedal Cover Kit (SBZ)
- 22-inch selective machining Carbon Flash wheels (SIY)
To note, several of these items are still available as standalone options. For example, the $595 Illuminated front and rear door sill plates (RPO code S0M), the $137 Illuminated mirror GMC emblem (RPO code S3I), and the $185 Sport Pedal Cover Kit (RPO code SBZ).
As for the specs, the 2022 GMC Yukon is offered with three 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. Each engine connects to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, while under the skin, the 2022 GMC Yukon rides on the GM T1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
