GMC Yukon customers interested in upgrading the stopping power on their new full-size SUV can do so with the optional Brembo brake package, which now offers expanded availability across the Yukon lineup.
The package in question is officially called the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers, and is tagged with RPO code 5JR. The Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade was previously only offered on GMC Yukon AT4 and Denali trim levels. Now, however, the package is available on all trim levels, including SLE and SLT.
The Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers is offered as an LPO-level option, which means it is installed by the dealer, rather than at the factory when the vehicle is initially produced. Pricing is set at $3,495. The package includes the following content:
- Red calipers on front and rear
- Front 16.1-inch by 1.3-inch Duralife rotors
- GMC logo on front calipers
For the GMC Yukon SLE trim level, the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers requires upgrading to the optional 20-inch 6-spoke polished aluminum wheels, tagged with RPO code NZG and priced at $1,100. Alternatively, any 20-inch or 22-inch LPO-level wheel option will suffice. Prices for these wheels range between $2,995 and $3,495.
Meanwhile, for GMC Yukon AT4 and Denali trim levels, the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers was previously unavailable in conjunction with LPO-level 20-inch and 22-inch wheels. That constraint is now gone, which means the brake upgrade is now available to order with those wheel options.
As a reminder, the latest 2022 GMC Yukon arrives as the second model year of the latest fifth-generation SUV nameplate, introducing just a few changes and updates over the all-new 2021 model year. Under the hood, the GMC Yukon is offered with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Under the body panels, the GMC Yukon rides on the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
