GMC, a division of General Motors Co. in Detroit, is expanding its premium Yukon line with the addition of two 2019 Graphite Editions. The all-new Yukon Graphite Edition offers a darkened exterior appearance, while the Yukon Graphite Performance Edition adds vehicle performance upgrades.
The Graphite Editions are available on SLT trim vehicles and can be ordered on either Yukon or Yukon XL in both 2WD and 4WD configurations.
“The Yukon continues to lead the full-size SUV segment with premium features and an instantly recognizable and well-respected identity,” says Stu Pierce, senior marketing manager for GMC Trucks and Full-Size SUVs. “The all-new Graphite Edition builds on the commanding road presence and inherent capabilities of the Yukon, and affords customers the opportunity to project a unique, yet distinctly GMC style.”
The Yukon Graphite Edition includes 22-inch bright machined wheels with Carbon Flash Metallic pockets, black assist steps with gloss black accents, premium black chrome grille mesh insert and fog lamp surrounds, body-color grille surround, black roof rails, gloss black beltline moldings, and additional black trim.
The Graphite Performance Edition requires the Graphite Edition and further adds a 6.2L V-8 engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Yukon and Yukon XL Graphite Editions will be available this summer in the U.S. Package pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date. Graphite Editions are offered in three exterior colors: Onyx Black, White Frost Tricoat, and Dark Sky Metallic.
