The 2023 GMC Yukon and extended-length Yukon XL add four new exterior colors to their palette: Frosted Pine Metallic, Sterling Metallic, Volcanic Red Tintcoat, and Titanium Rush Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Titanium Rush hue.
Assigned RPO code G6M and touch-up paint code WA-618G, Titanium Rush Metallic is one of 10 exterior colors offered on the full-size SUV, which include:
- Midnight Blue Metallic
- Onyx Black
- Pearl Beige Metallic
- Redwood Metallic
- Summit White
- White Frost Tricoat
- Titanium Rush Metallic (new for 2023)
- Frosted Pine Metallic (new for 2023)
- Volcanic Red Tintcoat (new for 2023)
- Sterling Metallic (new for 2023)
Earlier this year, GM Authority spent some time with a Sierra finished in the Titanium Rush Metallic color, and found that the the color has three shades, depending on lighting conditions.
Back to the Yukon: Titanium Rush Metallic is an extra-cost item that adds an additional $495 to the SUV’s price. It is available on all trim levels and can be combined with all Yukon interior colorways.
For reference, here are all five available interior colorways offered on the 2023 Yukon:
- Alpine Umber
- Dark Walnut/Slate
- Dark Walnut/Very Dark Ash Gray
- Jet Black
- Teak/Light Shale
One of the major changes applied to the 2023 GMC Yukon was the introduction of the Denali Ultimate trim level, which the automaker describes as the “most premium Yukon ever offered.” Highlights of this new trim include unique Vader Chrome exterior trim, model-specific 22-inch wheels, Alpine Umber full-grain leather upholstery, and genuine Paldao woodgrain interior trim. The GM Super Cruise driver assist system will also be offered as an optional upgrade.
As a reminder, the 2023 GMC Yukon range is available with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. All three engine options connect to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
The fifth-generation GMC Yukon rides on the GM T1 platform. Production for the 2023 GMC Yukon kicked off at the GM Arlington plant in Texas on July 18th, 2022. The online configurator tool went live for the 2023 Yukon back in August.
