2023 GMC Yukon AT4 and the Expected Offroad Improvements

The Yukon has always been considered a highly functional vehicle that has its own luxurious touch, so it should be interesting to learn what is coming with the 2023 GMC Yukon AT4. The family SUV is known for its accommodative and generous space, and with the updated features and techs, you should expect improved abilities with it. So, what can you expect from the AT4 Yukon, anyway?

The Good and the Bad

As a family ride, expect the 2023 GMC Yukon AT4 to offer generous space in its cabin. With three rows arrangement, there is definitely a lot of space to enjoy. Plus, the vehicle has several engine options (and all of them are good), making it super comfortable to ride and easy to maneuver around.

However, the AT4 isn’t completely perfect. When compared to Chevy analogues, the Yukon’s prices are definitely higher. In fact, it’s safe to say that many of Yukon’s models are quite costly when compared to other products within the same sector. Moreover, the SUV is likely big and wide, which will give you hard time to fit in your garage.

If you have been fixated on the Yukon, that’s fine. But for many people, there are still many options available out there, offering more perks and benefits than the Yukon but with more affordable price tag.

The Upcoming Update

GMC is one of the top auto companies that successfully make working trucks and commercial vehicles, but their Yukon has been one of the most luxurious, but accommodating, passenger vehicles in the company’s lineups. The family SUV isn’t only spacious, but it is big. As if it weren’t enough, they even have the 2023 GMC Yukon XL, which is the one having longer wheelbase for more space and cargo.

For GMC, it would be exciting to add up the Denali Ultimate, which is designed to be the highest trim in the lineup. This trim is new for the 2023. It would be packed with fancier features, including open (pore) wooden trim, Bose stereo system with 18 speakers, front seat with 16 way power technology (massage function included), better leather upholstery from Alpine Umber, and so much more. It also comes with Super Cruise technology that makes hands free highway driving possible. So, basically, the top features and technologies are available in Denali Ultimate.

Moreover, Yukon has always dealt with tough competitors like Cadillac and Chevrolet. But for the Denali Ultimate, it is designed to compete against other premium variants like Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade. However, the biggest and the main competitor of Yukon is actually the ‘sister brand’ Chevy with their Suburban and Tahoe SUV. From mechanical point of view, they are able to offer similar features with less money.

The Provided Trims and Price Ranges

There are several trims available. The base one would be the SLE, set at around $57,300. After the SLE, comes the SLT with a tag of $64,000. And then there would be the 2023 GMC Yukon AT4 with $71,200 tag price. And then the Denali with tag of around $75,000 and finally, the Denali Ultimate with tag price of $95,000.

GMC is confident enough with this lineup. From the regular family SUV to the luxurious and exclusive Denali (and the leather interior with hand stitched decoration), and the AT4 designed for the offroad adventure and its beefy (and sturdy) stance. If you are looking for well-equipped features without having to spend a fortune, the SLT would be a good option. This mid range trim is able to offer quite impressive lines of features, including 20 inch of wheels, improved driving assistance system, power liftgate, cooled and heated front seats, and leather upholstery.

Powertrain and Performance

There would be two engines offered for this AT4. The first one would be the V8 gas unit with 5.3 liter capacity, and the second one would the V8 unit with 6.2 liter capacity. The first one is able to deliver 355 hp and 383 Nm of torque, while the second one is said to deliver 420 Hp. It seems promising with four wheel driving system and auto 10 speed transmission. For the AT4, there would be all terrain tires and 20 inches of wheels, optional air suspension, underbody skid plates, and two speed (transfer) case. If you want a reliable vehicle for offroad trips, then 2023 GMC Yukon AT4 won’t disappoint.
