General Motors is poised to update the GMC Yukon with a full model refresh for the 2024 model year, ushering in a wealth of changes. Among the changes to be introduced by the 2024 GMC Yukon will be new 24-inch wheels, as seen in the following GM Authority spy photos.
For the moment, the largest wheel diameter on offer for the GMC Yukon are 22-inchers. As such, these new 24-inch wheels arrive as a significant upgrade over the current model’s setup.
As GM Authority covered previously, GM will offer 24-inch alloy wheel options across its refreshed full-size SUV model range, including the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV. The move coincides with a broader industry trend towards larger and larger wheels, and in fact, GM design chief Michael Simcoe was quoted in 2019 as saying that wheel sizing up to 26 inches in diameter was just over the horizon.
As for the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon, the upcoming model refresh follows the latest fifth-generation overhaul introduced for the 2021 model year. As we see here, the refresh includes 24-inch wheel options with a split, Y-spoke design, giving the SUV a relatively sporty look. The new 24-inch wheels are wrapped in 285/40R24 Bridgestone Alenza tires.
As we can see from these images, which coincide with previous GM Authority spy photos, the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon is set to introduce a new exterior design with a broad grille and reshaped lighting, including C-shaped lighting signatures and central vertical lighting elements, with styling that takes cues from the refreshed GMC Sierra and possibly the GMC Sierra EV as well. New fog lights are mounted lower in the fascia. Also notable is a new roof fin antenna mounted on the roof.
On the other side of the SUV, we see black vinyl camouflage covering the tail of the SUV and obscuring revisions to the rear fascia design, as well as updates to the taillights that will likely incorporate new LED lighting elements. The rear bumper will also get reworked, while lower in the bumper corners, we spot a quartet of exhaust pipes. The updates will continue in the cabin, offering up new tech features and other changes. Stay tuned for more info on all that.
Look for the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon to hit production this coming November.
