The current fifth-generation GMC Yukon first hit the scene for the 2021 model year, with the upcoming 2024 GMC Yukon poised to introduce a refresh for the SUV. The refresh will include a variety of changes and updates for the exterior and interior, including new styling, new tech, and more. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2024 GMC Yukon will also offer a new active exhaust system.
Per GM Authority sources, the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon, as well as the extended-length Yukon XL, will both offer the dual active exhaust system, tagged with RPO code NPP. Interestingly, this is the same dual active exhaust system that will be introduced on the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500.
For those readers who may not know, the NPP dual active exhaust system for the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 requires and is only available in conjunction with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine. With that in mind, the same will likely be true for the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon.
The dual active exhaust system provides owners with a more aggressive exhaust tone on demand, adding a sportier internal combustion soundtrack to the mix. It’s likely that the exhaust note will differ depending on the drive mode selected in the 2024 GMC Yukon, which will get a new Sport mode in conjunction with the exhaust system.
For the moment, the current GMC Yukon offers three engine options total. In addition to the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine already mentioned (420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque), the current Yukon also offers the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All three of these powerplants mate to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
As for the refreshed 2024 GMC Yukon, updates will include revised exterior styling, as well as an overhauled cabin with a larger infotainment readout similar to that of the GMC Sierra 1500, plus a set of screens that appear to stretch out across the dash.
