The 2023 GMC Yukon is the third model year for the current fifth-generation full-size SUV, introducing a handful of updates and changes compared to the preceding 2022 Yukon. Now, however, GM Authority has learned some units of the Yukon and Yukon XL will have to make-do without the wireless phone charging feature.
Starting with October 31st production, some 2023 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL models are being built without wireless charging (RPO Code K4C). Affected vehicles are identified with the RPO Code 00C (zero zero C) on the window sticker, and no retrofit is available or planned at this time.
It’s worth noting that wireless phone charging is normally equipped as standard on SLT, AT4, Denali and Denali Ultimate trim levels. The K4C option is not available on the SLE trim.
As background, GM has been struggling with parts constraints for the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. In September alone, some examples of the Yukon were built without ventilated seats, while the Super Cruise feature was under constraint. Earlier than that, in August, the Yukon was temporarily unavailable to order with the Enhanced Trailering Technology Package (ZM1).
As a reminder, both the 2023 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are offered with three engine options. These include the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and finally the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower at and 460 pound-feet of torque. All three engines are mated to to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
