GMC celebrates 30 years of the Yukon with the 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Yukon Denali

  • Past, present or future, the GMC Yukon will always champion stunning aesthetics matched with unmatched capability and presence as showcased by the 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Yukon Denali

MIDDLE EAST— Dominant looks, a commanding attitude and class-leading refinement have defined the legendary GMC Yukon for over 30 years. Embedded in its very DNA is the demand for engineering excellence, driving GMC to bring new levels of power, capability and premium craftsmanship to every iteration of the Yukon since its inception in 1991, with the latter taken to new heights with the introduction of the Yukon Denali trim in 1998.

The GMC Yukon is woven into the fabric of the Middle East as one of the region’s most consistently popular SUVs, facilitating both family travel and solo adventures. To celebrate 30 years of the iconic Yukon, GMC will build 30, region-exclusive, 30th Anniversary Editions based on the Yukon Denali, the ultimate expression of GMC premium.

“The GMC Yukon holds a special place in the heart of the region. This is the SUV people grew up with, hitting the road for the Eid break, filling the family on Friday lunch trips or cruising into the desert for a night under the stars. The Yukon is part of the family,” said Sharon Nishi, Chief Marketing Officer, GM Africa & Middle East. “We’re celebrating Yukon’s 30th anniversary with the fanfare it deserves. From a limited number of special edition Yukon Denali that showcase the capability, power and refinement of GMC technology to sharing the human stories that drive us, the spotlight shines firmly on the Yukon and its legacy with our customers as well as future owners who aspire to be part of the GMC family.”

30th Anniversary GMC Yukon: Key Highlights

The iconic GMC Yukon is one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road today. Limited to 30 units, the 30th Anniversary Edition is built on the premium Yukon Denali trim, with a host of unique accessories selected to highlight the Yukon Denali’s stunning aesthetics with a modern dark theme.

Each of the 30 units will carry the exclusive 30th anniversary badges on the exterior, as well as an interior plaque marking the vehicle’s designation of the 30 to be built. The interior plate will also be laser etched with the vehicle’s unique Vehicle Identification Number to establish its restricted status.

With just 30 units and exclusive to the Middle East, the limited edition brings a higher level of distinction to select GMC Yukon Denali 30th Anniversary Editions.

Based on a dark contemporary theme, this limited edition will be appointed in Onyx Black, the most popular GMC Yukon exterior color since the legend was born in 1991 – GMC and Denali badges will also be in black accented by 22-inch high gloss black multi-spoke wheels.

The 30th Anniversary Edition Yukon Denali’s darker theme illuminates evening drives and welcomes driver and passengers with a GMC logo projection on the perimeter lighting, while the illuminated front and rear door sills embossed with the Denali badge ensure sophistication at every touchpoint.

In addition to the exterior and interior visual elements of the 30th Anniversary Edition, the sonic enhancement of the Yukon Denalis 6.2L V8 comes with the addition of a GM performance Cat-Back exhaust system – this adds a distinctive V8 growl to the experience and reminds the driver, passengers, and as passing by the power that resides within each Yukon.
