Refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon AT4 Spied Testing For The First Time: Photos17
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.

I love those wheels
So long as it has the current 10 speed transmission, there is no point in looking.
Most of us don’t want to rear-end people when our vehicle lurches forward from a stop.
The 10 speed hasn’t had much issues, it has been well received. If you are rear ending someone, that is driver error. Maybe try backing up a little bit and you won’t have that problem…
Will they have an option for diesel in the updated model
according to GM AUTHORITY, the updated Duramax 3.0-Liter I-6 LZ0 Turbo Diesel Engine is expected… so hopefully (meaning) yes? lol anyhow here’s are some good data:
The new LZ0 engine delivers a sizable increase in power and torque over its predecessor, the LM2.
Max power is 305 horsepower, a 10 percent increase over the 277 horsepower in the LM2
Max torque is 495 pound-feet, a 7.6 percent increase over the 460 pound-feet in the LM2
The gains in power and torque are the result of upgrades to several key components for optimum performance, including:
New steel pistons with a revised combustion bowl
Retuned turbo compressor
New fuel injectors
Improved temperature control features
Model Year Vehicle Transmission Power (hp / kW) @ RPM Torque (lb-ft / Nm @ RPM)

The Duramax has always been offered in the Yukon/Tahoe – except in the ZL1 and AT4, where it doesn’t fit in the reconfigured front end. That’s always been the problem. We’re wondering if the front end has been changed to suit the Duramax.
WHOA WAIT! Console mounted shifter, not push buttons?????
They showed an interior from a the pickup, I’d say only speculation at this point that the shifter will be there or not.
push buttons is not my favorite. a shifter with -/+ would be awesome.
Hopeful for a much bigger infotainment screen
They will probably use the same one from the Silverado and Sierra.
Lord baby Jesus in your little crib please bring us a
That would be so sweet!
hopefully, the Duramax will be updated with the LZ0 Diesel Engine.
I enjoy the existng interior of these a lot, as well as the ride/drive. As for the exterior, hope they tone down the chrome and lose the cheesy quad exhaust outlets…and, while I’m on my list of requests, could we have a badge delete option…the current Denali has 3 badges on the back and 2 on each side…it’s just littered with letters.
I want to see the HVAC controls in the display panel. Any word on that?
