The Chevrolet and GMC full-size T1 SUV family are entering their second year on the market after what feels like a soft opening. Already, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, as well as the 2022 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL lineup are getting a new digital instrument cluster, plus a new infotainment screen, which you can read about here. Despite those big details, there’s still much more to talk about regarding these big SUVs, according to the vehicle’s official dealer order guide, and today we’d like to turn your attention to the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4.

2022 GMC Yukon AT4 Updates

Along with receiving the previously mentioned infotainment and driver display changes, the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 will also unlock the 6.2L L87 V8 engine to customers. Previously, the 2021 Yukon AT4 was only available with GM’s 5.3L L84 V8. A perfectly fine engine, to be sure, but doesn’t quite match the macho magnificence that is the Yukon AT4. With the L87 comes 420 horsepower, and 460 lb-ft of torque. Plenty for punching the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 through the trails. Just don’t go too fast: that tough-looking lower bash plate is actually made of plastic in lieu of steel. And, sorry diesel fans, the LM2 3.0L Duramax still isn’t available with the AT4 package.

Adding to the changes unique to the 2022 GMC Yukon AT4 is a set of 20-inch accessory wheels, carrying LPO code SEM. These dealer installed multi-spoke Gloss Black wheels will also not forgo the factory 20-inch wheels the Yukon AT4 comes with, meaning customers can take them home and fit on a different tire, if they so choose.

Minor updates include what GMC is calling “Enhanced Trailer View,” which is another dealer-installed accessory package. This gives the 2022 Yukon AT4 the nifty trailer vision camera that’s already available on the GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck. The package includes a rear vision trailer camera, trailer assist guides, and an auxiliary trailer camera. By nature, it requires the Max Trailering package, Technology Package, and trailer tire pressure monitor sensors. The Enhanced Trailer View package is also available on the 2022 Yukon Denali.
