Are you under the impression that the GMC Yukon is a bit outdated? You are not alone; the automaker also feels the same way. As a result, a refreshed iteration is right around the corner.
Mind you, it won't be an entirely new product, as the outgoing one is only a few years old, and GMC wants to keep it on the competitive side of its class by giving it a mid-cycle refresh. The official confirmation that the 2025 Yukon is about to premiere came from the car manufacturer itself, which released a teaser last week.

Although cropped, the official picture revealed a new face, which looks like an evolution compared to its predecessor. The model will feature redesigned headlamps and fresh daytime running lights with a C-shaped design. The grille also seems to have been redesigned, and it looks like the surrounding trim sports a hexagonal pattern.

Since it is closely related to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, and the bowtie brand brought them into the 2025 MY last year, we expect the upcoming Yukon to feature some of its goodies. As a result, it will likely pack a 17.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and drivers will likely look through the steering wheel at the 11-inch digital gauge cluster. Additional updates might revolve around the center console and maybe the upholstery and trim.

GMC is expected to give the 2025 Yukon the same gasoline engines. These comprise the 6.2-liter V8, which pumps out 420 hp (426 ps/313 kW) in the current one, and the smaller 5.3-liter unit, making 355 hp (360 ps/265 kW). Reports also speak about a new 3.0-liter Duramax diesel, kicking out 305 horsepower (309 ps/228 kW) and a healthy 495 pound-foot (671 Nm) of torque.

Everything will wrap up into an interesting proposal in this segment, and the rather bigger news is the brand's expansion into new markets. As you have probably figured out, the 2025 Yukon will lead GMC's pack in overseas countries like Australia, New Zealand, and China. The grand unveiling date has yet to be disclosed, with the GM-owned marque keeping this detail close to its chest. Still, it should premiere in a few weeks or maybe months, hitting dealers nationwide shortly after.

However, while GMC is trying to build up the hype, several rendering artists have already imagined what the large SUV will look like. Our latest encounter with a few digital illustrations came from Halo oto on YouTube, and it is a regular approach that appears to stay true to the real thing up to a point. We won't be mad if it turns out to look like this, but it won't, not entirely, anyway, and we reckon you feel the same. So, do you?
