GMSV has celebrated its third anniversary with a significant announcement, revealing the GMC Yukon, a full-size premium SUV with seating for eight, will be joining the marque’s showroom portfolio.
“I’m excited to confirm the new GMC Yukon, will be remanufactured here in Melbourne and will be available in Australia and New Zealand,” GMSV director Greg Rowe said.
“The popularity of GMSV and the vehicles we sell through our network has grown substantially in a few short years and this success was what inspired us to investigate the possibility of adding an all-new model to the line-up.”
GMSV dealerships will offer the highly-equipped GMC Yukon Denali and the first examples of the new model are anticipated to arrive in showrooms in early 2025. Pricing and local specs will be confirmed prior to that.
At the same time, there are several changes to the existing Silverado and Corvette model lines, including the addition of the 2024 E-Ray, a hybrid variant pairing an electric drive unit with an LT2 6.2-litre V8 engine.
The quickest accelerating Corvette ever, it features all-wheel drive, and should arrive down under in the latter half of next year. For Chevrolet Silverado enthusiasts, a new GM performance exhaust will be added to both the 1500 ZR2 and LTZ Premium from next year.
In another massive development, the 2024 ZR2 will receive a swath of added equipment, including a rear camera mirror, multi-colour 15.0-inch diagonal head-up display, power tilt/telescoping steering column, adaptive cruise control and Bose premium sound.
As announced in September, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD is scheduled to start the remanufacturing process at Dandenong this month, with the first wave of vehicles anticipated to arrive in showrooms as early as December.
More details on all the changes to the existing models, and the launch of the GMC Yukon can be found on the GM Specialty Vehicles website. For more information, contact your local GMSV dealership.
