The latest fifth-generation GMC Yukon was introduced for the 2021 model year, with the upcoming 2024 model year slated to usher in a full mid-cycle refresh for the full-size SUV. Now, GM Authority spy photographers have caught the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon AT4 out and about undergoing some testing.
For those readers who may be unaware, the GMC Yukon AT4 is the off-road-oriented trim level of the lineup, offering a selection of equipment and features for exploring the local trails. That includes a unique front fascia treatment with a high-approach-angle bumper and a set of red recovery hooks, both of which look to be continued by the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon AT4.
The front end will also introduce refreshed lighting bits, once again with C-shaped LED lighting signatures and new central vertical lighting elements, possibly taking cues from the refreshed GMC Sierra and even the GMC Sierra EV. The lower fascia and fog lights appear to be revised as well. Finally, although it isn’t immediately obvious, we’d also expect to see a performance front skid plate mounted under the chin.
Moving over to the profile view, we see a set of six-spoke wheels with a Y-shaped spoke design. The wheels are wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler rubber. Up top, there’s a new antenna, which ditches the shark-fin style of the pre-refresh model in favor of a new dome-shaped antenna. The newly-shaped comms fin is once again mounted on the roof on the driver’s side, directly above the driver.
Looking over the rear, additional camo was applied to hide the taillights, hatch, and rear bumper, although lower in the rear fascia we spot a quartet of round exhaust pipes. Under the camo, we’d expect to find revisions to the taillight housings, most likely with new LED lighting elements inside.
In addition to a revised exterior, the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon will also usher in new tech features, possibly including the new GM Ultra Cruise driver assist system. What’s more, the cockpit will get a refreshed layout and updated infotainment screens to match, similar to what we see for the 2022.5 Sierra 1500 refresh.
Per a GM Authority exclusive published last December, the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon will hit production in November of the 2023 calendar year.
