General Motors will debut a model refresh for the GMC Yukon full-size SUV in conjunction with the 2025 model year, with a long of updates and changes expected. Among these will be an overhauled cabin brimming with the latest infotainment tech. The question is – will the 2025 GMC Yukon get the same infotainment screen as the GMC Sierra EV and 2024 GMC Acadia?
For those readers who may be unaware, General Motors unveiled the all-new 2024 GMC Acadia last month, pulling the sheets on the crossover’s latest third generation. Among the updates was a new interior design featuring a large, vertically oriented (portrait-style) infotainment screen in the center console. The 2024 GMC Acadia’s screen layout is similar to that of the GMC Sierra EV, which also incorporates a vertically oriented infotainment screen in the center console.
Judging by these two new GMC products, it certainly seems logical that the refreshed 2025 GMC Yukon will also incorporate a portrait-style infotainment screen. The refreshed SUV is also expected to include a new digital instrument cluster, plus a new shifter mechanism. For now, it’s unclear if the 2025 GMC Yukon will once again offer unique cockpit layouts that differentiate the Denali and Denali Utlimate trim levels from the rest of the lineup. To note, the 2025 GMC Yukon will also incorporate 5G network connectivity, as GM Authority exclusively covered previously.
Beyond the overhauled cabin, the refreshed 2025 GMC Yukon will present new exterior styling that falls in line with GMC’s latest design trends, with new C-shaped headlights, new taillights, and a new roof-mounted communications fin, the latter of which will enable 5G connectivity.
As for the powertrain, the 2025 GMC Yukon will offer three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine. The new LZ0 will replace the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine offered currently.
