When there are news about 2024 Yukon Denali is being prepped for the upcoming launch, the internet has been filled with quite a lot of spy shot pictures of the vehicle going through testing cycles. It should be exciting to see what the 2024 model would look like, considering that it would pack up a mid-cycle refresh work. Although the company hasn’t said much about this new model, we can at least make some predictions about what the ride may look like.
The Updated Plan
As it was mentioned before, the company is still hush-hush about their new Yukon Denali, but the mid-cycle update is a sure thing. But since they are still quiet about it, we can only catch glimpses of the prototype shapes and forms. From the silhouette, we can make guesses of what possibly carried by the new Denali Yukon.
Design and Construction
The body camo is pretty extensive and thorough, but the two prototypes of the GMC Yukon still show some interesting cues and hints. You may not be able to see what’s under the camo, but you can make predictions and guess.
If you take a look at the design, the front fascia looks interesting. It seems that it gets a complete revision and fresh work. The grille would be new and broad, complete with reshaped lighting accents. Its lighting signatures, which come in C-shaped layout, would be coming again, but it would look a tad brighter now. The central (vertical) lighting elements would also be new and updated. If you take a look at the design, it may seem familiar because it is inspired from the updated GMC Sierra as well as the GMC Sierra EV. Expect LED elements to highlight the refresh new face.
The changes don’t stop there are there are also updates happening on the lower fascia of 2024 Yukon Denali. Don’t expect to find vertical orientation of the fog lights anymore. Instead, they would be coming in a projector style (rounder types) unit. These designs seem to be the special specs for Denali, as you can see from the indication of the peeked out grille. From the wheels, you can tell that this model would be a Denali. The wheels are coming with 22 inch aluminum rollers that are somewhat familiar to the structure. Another prototype, however, is running on a completely new wheel design, which is camouflaged partially with black and white cover
The Rear Design
Since the camo is also found on the back, it’s highly likely that the refreshed design would extend all the way to the back. It’s possible that the new Yukon would have updated taillight housings, most probably coming with new (LED) lighting elements.
The Techs in Interior Cabin
The changes would also take place to the cabin, especially focusing on the technology elements. Besides the aesthetic appeal, there would be significant updates to the onboard tech elements. If you see the camouflaged prototype (and also the SUV’s cutouts) on the front end and also the side mirrors cameras and (roof-mounted) antenna, it’s possible that the new Yukon Denali would be offering new Ultra Cruise technology (from GM), which is a new driver assist system. Naturally, besides the techs, you can expect interior layout updates and also infotainment screens.
Price and Release Date
There is no information about the launch date or the price range. However, if everything goes as scheduled, production will likely start from November 2023. The prototypes were spotted testing around Milford Proving Grounds located in Michigan. But it’s unsure where the car would be made. Sources claim that the manufacturing process will take place in Texas, in the company’s Arlington manufacturing plant. We should know more about 2024 Yukon Denali once more information is available.
