When you speak about GMC, it is clear that it is all about SUV. This division of General Motors is known for making excellent SUVs and crossovers of all types. One of its top and most recognizable models is Yukon. It is a full-size SUV, which was originally launched in 1992. During these almost two and a half decades, we saw four generations of this great SUV. Current model came last year as 2015 year model. Since it is still a very fresh model, it is hard to expect that company will change something in near future. However, 2017 GMC Yukon will still come with some modifications, minor but notable.
2017 GMC Yukon specs
As we already mentioned, this full-size SUV came just recently so you shouldn’t expect something bigger, when it is about changes, in next few years. It will keep the same base characteristics such as new K2UG platform, outside and inside styling, engines etc. However, some of the smaller modifications for 2017 GMC Yukon are expected. Company already prepares some modifications for 2016 year model. We will see some new colors in offer, some new standard features, new entertainment systems etc. If we take in case all of these, there is no reason to not expect similar kind of changes for 2017 GMC Yukon. What exactly to expect is still unknown. We can only speculate about possible changes at this moment. However, it is for sure that we won’t see some bigger changes yet, so we can expect things like new standard features, some new hi-tech system and maybe some minor design tweaks.

Gearbox is 8-speed automatic, but we should mention that company prepares new transmission for the near future, so we can see it already in 2017 Yukon.
