The 2023 GMC Yukon is the third model year for the current fifth-generation full-size SUV, introducing a handful of critical updates and changes compared to the preceding 2022 model year. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that two safety and convenience tech features are currently under constraint for the 2023 GMC Yukon.
According to GM Authority sources, Adaptive Cruise Control (RPO code KSG) and Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO code UGN) are currently unavailable to order for the 2023 GMC Yukon Denali. The features have been unavailable to order since the start of production of the 2023 model year, and the constraint is expected to remain in place until October 3rd.
Units of the 2023 GMC Yukon affected by this constraint are indicated as such by the window sticker, which is marked with RPO code 07Z. In lieu of Adaptive Cruise Control and Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, affected units will instead be equipped with Electronic Cruise Control and Automatic Emergency Braking. It’s unclear at this time if buyers will receive a purchase credit for buying an SUV affected by this constraint, and if so, how much that credit may be. For now, a dealer retrofit for the constrained features is not planned.
Meanwhile, Adaptive Cruise Control and Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking are still offered as part of the SLT Luxury Package (RPO code WPL), which available for the 2023 GMC Yukon SLT trim level. The features are also included as standard for the new 2023 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate. For those readers who may be unaware, the Yukon Denali Ultimate is a new addition for the 2023 model year, offered as the latest range-topper for the Yukon lineup.
As a reminder, the 2023 GMC Yukon can be had with one of three powerplant 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 engine. Under the body panels, the GMC Yukon rides on the GM T1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
