As you may already be aware, when GMC unveiled the all-new, next-generation lineup of Yukon vehicles, they also introduced the first-ever Yukon AT4. It joins an already expansive family of Yukon models – Yukon, Yukon Denali, Yukon XL, Yukon XL Denali – as one of the newest available premium off-road vehicles. You may also already know that GMC is double the size of its off-road models, adding AT4 trims not only to the Yukon but to the Canyon and Terrain as well. We thought we’d dive specifically into the Yukon AT4 today, taking a look at some of the specs & features that are bound to make it an off-road favorite.

“Our mission with the next-generation Yukon was to create an off-road capable vehicle with a premium interior, advanced technology and class-leading space for eight people and their cargo.”
– Jim Danahy, Executive Chief Engineer of Full-size Trucks, GMC
While things like horsepower or fuel efficiency are unlikely to be changed for the AT4 trim, there are a few specifications important to off-road driving that will be. Thanks to the available four-corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system, you can choose to raise your Yukon AT4 for an additional 2” of ground clearance. Doing so, in turn, allows the SUV to provide what is almost a 32-degree approach angle.
There are a few changes to the design of the Yukon AT4 in order to set it apart from other trims on the model’s lineup. For instance, rather than outfitting the exterior with chrome accents like the Denali trim, the AT4 trim is equipped with much darker or body-color accents, plus a pair of unique red recovery hooks similar to the ones found in the Sierra AT4. On the inside, a unique Jet Black theme can be found, enhanced by Brandy-colored accents and AT4-exclusive leather-appointed seats and stitching.
Finally, several features have been added to enhance the off-road nature of the vehicle. These include a two-speed transfer case, 20” Goodyear all-terrain tires, a Traction Select System featuring an off-road mode, Hill Descent Control and some skid plates on the underbody. Plus, the heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seating and heated second-row outboard seats come with the Yukon AT4 as well!
