The 2024 GMC Yukon debuts the fourth model year for the current fifth-generation SUV, ushering in just a few changes and updates. As was the case previously, the 2024 GMC Yukon is once again available in the range-topping Denali Ultimate trim level, which was initially unveiled for the 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has uncovered that the 2024 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate will offer two new wheel options.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2024 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate will now offer the following wheel sets (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- 22-inch 6-spoke Carbon Flash Metallic aluminum with selective machining (SIY)
- 22-inch Multi-spoke Gloss Black wheels (SGM)
Both of these wheel sets were previously only available for SLE, SLT, and Denali trim levels in conjunction with the 2023 GMC Yukon, and they’re now offered on the 2024 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate as well. The standard wheel set for the Yukon Denali Ultimate consists of the 22-inch 7-spoke ultra-bright machined wheels with bright chrome accents and dark paint (RPO code SMR).
Exact pricing information for these wheel sets when equipped by the 2024 GMC Yukon Denali Ultimate is still forthcoming. However, looking at pricing info from the 2023 model year, we find the 22-inch 6-spoke Carbon Flash Metallic aluminum with selective machining wheels cost $1,995, while the 22-inch Multi-spoke Gloss Black wheels cost $2,995.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2024 GMC Yukon was originally expected to debut a refresh for the SUV nameplate. However, new information later came to light indicating that the refresh would in fact debut for the 2025 model year, or possibly even later.
Considering the refreshed fifth-gen GMC Yukon will not debut for the 2024 model year, the 2024 GMC Yukon will offer the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine as before, as opposed to the new 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine. The 3.0L I6 LZ0 was originally anticipated to replace the 3.0L I6 LM2 as the Yukon’s optional diesel powerplant, offering more power (305 horsepower at 3,750 rpm) and more torque (495 pound-feet of torque) than the LM2. However, the LM2 will continue to be the lone diesel option for the 2024 model year.
