The current-generation 2015 GMC Yukon has only been on the market one year, yet GMC is already giving it a few updates. For 2016, the Yukon lineup now offers a more comprehensive Driver Alert Package, two new 22-inch wheel designs to choose from, a hands-free liftgate for SLT models, two new exterior colors, and a capless fuel-filler neck.

Though minor, the changes help the Yukon stay a head of its highly competitive rivals, including the newly refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator. For the most part, however, the Yukon lineup – which includes the Yukon, Yukon XL, and the Denali-spec trims on each – carries over from 2015 unchanged. That’s not a bad thing, however, as the Yukon’s recent reworking brought a slew of very welcomed (and needed) updates to GMC’s full size SUV.

Those changes include fold-flat second and third row seats that no longer need to be removed to achieve a flat load floor; upgraded powertrains that include GM’s latest EcoTec3 technologies; a more upscale interior design with better finishings; and a bolder, more sharpened exterior look that replaced the outgoing 2007 through 2014 Yukon’s JELL-O-mold-like styling.

The newest generation of Yukon, along with its GM corporate twin, the Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, and Cadillac Escalade, will likely carry on for several more years without a major refresh. That won’t stop General Motors from giving them some minor updates along the way, however, as evidenced by these updates still so close to the vehicle’s launch.
