In case you don’t prefer too much shiny chrome for some reason and you want the Yukon that features everything that provides the Denali model, you are at the right place because the car manufacturer just introduced the model that may satisfy you. From now on, potential buyers will be able to get the full-size SUV in form of the 2019 GMC Yukon Graphite Edition and Graphite Performance Edition.
While the first one just shows Yukon’s dark side, the Performance Edition pumps some additional adrenaline. More precisely, the regular Graphite Edition has got a splash of darkness that includes black chrome grille mesh insert and fog lamp surrounds, black roof rails, and gloss black beltline moldings, as well as 22-inch bright machined wheels fitted with carbon flash metallic pockets.
The 2019 GMC Graphite Performance Edition gets the same exterior and treatment and more. The awesome full-size model is also paired with some extra-performance goodies that include a new exhaust and bigger brakes. In addition, GMC improved the familiar magnetic ride suspension with a specific tune. The SUV relies on an awesome 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The mill is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and gets a rear axle ratio of 3.23:1. 4WD models are better thanks to the standard active two-speed transfer case, trailer brake controller, high capacity air cleaner, and a 170-amp alternator. A color head-up display is standard inside, as it is Bose noise cancellation.
There’s no price information at the moment. However, we believe that both 2019 GMC Yukon Graphite Edition and Graphite Performance Edition will be more affordable than the topping Denali model.
