The 2022 GMC Yukon is the second model year for the latest fifth-generation SUV, arriving with just a few small changes compared to the initial 2021 model year. Previously, GM Authority reported that the 2022 GMC Yukon would be unavailable with the power-sliding center console feature, but now, it’s back, albeit with limited availability.
For those readers who may have missed it, GM Authority previously reported that the power-sliding console feature in the 2022 GMC Yukon was unavailable to order. Later, we reported that the feature would be unavailable for the remainder of the 2022 model year.
Now, however, the 2022 GMC Yukon is once again available with the power-sliding console feature. However, the feature is only available with the range-topping Yukon Denali.
The full name of the feature is “Power-sliding center floor console with drawer, secure storage, manual sliding armrest and cup holders for second row,” tagged with RPO code DCH. The feature is included as standard for the Denali trim level. The power-sliding console was also optional for the SLT and AT4 trims, however, this is currently not the case.
Previously, 2022 GMC Yukon SLT trims offered the power-sliding console as an option for an extra $350. The feature required the Luxury Package, priced at $2,030 and tagged with RPO code WPL, as well as the second row power bucket seats, priced at $370 and tagged with RPO code ATN.
As for the AT4 trim level, the power-sliding console was offered for an extra $350, and required the second row power bucket seats, priced at $370 and tagged with RPO code ATN.
The feature was never available for the SLE trim.
As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Yukon is available with three engine options, including the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, the atmospheric 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, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
