The 2023 GMC Yukon drops in as the third model year for the current fifth-gen SUV, debuting a few important updates and changes compared to the preceding 2022 model year. Among these is the introduction of a new 20-inch polished aluminum wheel option.
The new 20-inch polished aluminum wheel option for the 2023 GMC Yukon is tagged with RPO code NZM, is offered for SLT trim levels as a no-charge upgrade. To note, the 2023 GMC Yukon SLT is already equipped as standard with 20-inch wheels. The new NZM 20-inch wheel option is not offered for 2023 GMC Yukon SLE, AT4, Denali, or Denali Ultimate trim levels.
The latest 20-inch polished aluminum wheel option for the 2023 GMC Yukon includes a six split-spoke design with a shiny finish that works well with the SUV’s premium styling and appearance. The look complements the polished trim found on the window surrounds (also known as daylight openings), the front fascia trim, and the rear hatch trim to boot.
One of the most important updates made with the debut of the 2023 GMC Yukon is the introduction of the new GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate, the latest range-topping trim level in the GMC Yukon lineup. The 2023 model year also deletes three paint colors, which are replaced by four new hues.
Notably, the 2023 GMC Yukon also gets a $500 increase over the preceding 2022 model.
