2019 GMC Yukon bags two Graphite Editions


It’s all in the name of appeal, of course

2019 GMC Yukon customers looking for a bumped-up look on their SUVs can now pick between the Yukon Graphite Edition and Yukon Graphite Performance Edition.

The catch is you can only get one on the SLT trim, however, GMC is offering the two Graphite Editions on both Yukon and Yukon XL models with 2WD or 4WD.


So what difference do they make, exactly? The list of changes contains 22-inch machined wheels and a plethora of all-black-everything bits and bobs: grille and grille ornament, fog lights ornaments, roof rails and whatnot.


What’s more, you need the Graphite Edition to unlock the Graphite Performance Edition which brings a 6.2-liter V8 married to a 10-speed auto, magnetic ride control, six-spoke wheels 22 inch in size, active noise cancellation courtesy of Bose and a color head-up display, among others.


The V8 churns out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft. As for availability, GMC says it will roll out the 2019 Yukon Graphite Edition and Graphite Performance Edition in the US of A as of this summer, with three body hues: Onyx Black, White Frost Tricoat and Dark Sky Metallic.
