The 2025 GMC Yukon is inching closer to its debut, and we get to see the front fascia for the first time in a teaser photo that the carmaker has just released. GMC scheduled the official unveiling of the full-size SUV for later this year.
GMC teases the 2025 Yukon for the first time, showing the front end of the SUV. It sports an upright radiator grille, flanked by C-shaped LED daytime running lights, which sport a new layout, now sitting in a vertical position.

A muscular hood with powerdomes is also visible in the photo. That is as much as the teaser image reveals from the vehicle that is undergoing a mid-cycle refresh.

The new Yukon will see the return of the AT4 trim, while the Denali will also be part of the lineup, with the latter receiving some upgrades to mark its quarter of a century on the market. It is, after all, the fifth anniversary of the AT4, since its launch with the Sierra 1500 back in 2019, and the 25th anniversary of the Denali sub-brand, which debuted on the 1999 Yukon Denali concept.

Prototypes of the model wearing camouflage have been caught testing out on public roads since 2022. The GMC Yukon XL Denali Ultimate was spotted wearing massive 24-inch multi-spoke wheels, which would be a first for the SUV.

Redesigned taillights, repositioned reverse lights, and a quad exhaust with a squared-off shape should also be on the menu for the luxury Denali version.

With all the prototypes caught testing, it was not until January that GM finally confirmed the arrival of the refreshed Yukon. Since then, the prototypes have been stripping the camo, a sign that the model, which shares its underpinnings with the 2025 Chevrolet Tahoe, is inching closer to its debut.

What we don't see in the teaser photo but will be there is a refreshed cabin. A digital instrument cluster, sitting behind the steering wheel, will provide the relevant driving information. A portrait-style touchscreen will allow the control of most of the car's functions.

There won't be any major changes under the hood of the refreshed GMC Yukon. So, we will be dealing with the naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V8 petrol engine. GMC will come up with the 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel Duramax engine instead of the current 3.0-liter inline-six LM2 turbodiesel. The naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8 L85 power plant will also be part of the plan.

The upcoming GMC Yukon should be unveiled later in 2024, according to the carmaker. That should be after the new Acadia hits the dealerships, which is scheduled for later this spring. GMC is planning to expand its presence into other markets, with Australia, New Zealand, and China on the list.
