The 2022 GMC Yukon is the second model year of the latest fifth-generation SUV nameplate, introducing only a handful of small changes compared to the initial 2021 model year. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 GMC Yukon's Rear-Seat Media System is no longer available to order.
The Rear-Seat Media System for the 2022 GMC Yukon is tagged with RPO code UW9, and will be unavailable to order for the remainder of the model year. It's unclear at this time what is behind the availability issues for the system.
As for the specific equipment, the Rear-Seat Media System features dual rear seat-mounted 12.6-inch diagonal color-touch LCD HD screens, as well as Wi-Fi wireless projection capability, two Bluetooth headphones with a pair of HDMI ports placed on the back of the center console.
The Rear-Seat Media System was priced at $1,995, and was previously offered as an optional extra for 2022 GMC Yukon SLE, AT4 and Denali trim levels. The system was not available on SLE trims.
The Rear-Seat Media System was also included with the AT4 Premium Plus Package (RPO code PEH) and the AT4 Premium Package (RPO code RGM). What's more, the Rear-Seat Media System was included with the Denali Ultimate Package (RPO code PEC), however, the Denali Ultimate Package is no longer available to order, replaced with the Denali Reserve Package.
Per GM Authority's previous coverage, GM made a few changes to the Rear Seat Media System with the introduction of the 2022 model year SUVs, including the deletion of the Navigation feature. Additionally, GM changed the USB-C ports to only provide charging, whereas previously the ports could be used as a wired connection for music streaming. The Miracast screen mirroring feature was also deleted.
As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Yukon is available with three engine options, including the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Each engine connects to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, while rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are both available.
Under the skin, the 2022 GMC Yukon rides on the GM T1 platform. Production of the SUV takes place at GM Arlington plant in Arlington, Texas.
