    2012 GMC Yukon and Sierra Heritage Editions Debut

    2012 GMC Yukon and Sierra Heritage Editions Debut
    GM
    March 30, 2012


    It is no coincidence that the 2012 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and Sierra Heritage Editions will debut at the New York Auto Show. A century ago, the GMC name first appeared on the front of a truck at this very same event.

    Commemorative exterior badges on the doors of these special models feature the original GMC logo design that debuted on the 1912 range of models, which included gas- and electric-powered trucks designed for the most demanding among early drivers. The script is surrounded by the words “Heritage Edition.”

    2012 Heritage Editions will be offered on Sierra 1500 Crew Cab, Yukon and Yukon XL models in SLT trim. Three colors will be available – a new, exclusive Heritage Blue ($195), White Diamond ($995) or Onyx Black (no additional cost). Interior colors for the Yukon are Ebony and Light Tan.

    Each Heritage Edition model offers its own differentiating content. The Sierra Heritage Edition full-size pickup includes:

    • Unique “Heritage Edition” exterior badges
    • Embroidered front floor mats
    • Embroidered front headrests
    • Chrome door handles, mirror caps and door moldings
    • 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels
    • Convenience package with rear park assist, adjustable pedals, Universal Home Remote, EZ-Lift locking tailgate and rear wheelhouse liners
    • Rear-vision camera

    The Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs are equipped with:
    • Unique “Heritage Edition” exterior badges
    • Embroidered front floor mats
    • Embroidered front headrests
    • SLT-2 Equipment Package with 10-way leather memory seats, headed second-row seats with power release, power-operated liftgate and heated side mirrors
    • Additional content – including 20-inch wheels – is optional

    For Sierra, the Heritage Edition package adds $2,645. The Yukon and Yukon XL package adds $1,970 to the suggested retail price, or $1,820 for the Yukon XL ¾-ton model. The charges for premium paint colors listed above are in addition to the package prices.

    “The GMC brand always looks forward, but this day provides an opportunity to celebrate 100 years of the proud GMC name,” said Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of GMC Marketing. “Sierra and Yukon are two of our longest-running and most-respected nameplates, so it makes sense to use them to represent our heritage.”

    GMC was formed in 1912 when the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company merged with two others – Reliance and Randolph – to become the brand known today for trucks, crossovers and SUVs. GMC is the second largest of the four General Motors brands. If it were a stand-alone manufacturer, it would be the 10th-largest automaker in the United States in terms of total vehicle sales in 2011.

    There is nothing worse than putting out a release with poor spelling or grammar. I'm sure that should have said "heated" second row.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    Anyone that would pay extra money for either of those would have to be crazy.

    Typical disappointing GM "special edition" package. If nothing else, they should have at least incorporated some of the "All Terrain" package features into the package (existing parts), done a better job of designing their commemorative badges, and maybe use something better than "chrome clad" wheels.

    Oh well.... I can dream.

    That's funny... I seem to remember GMC celebrating it's centennial about 10 years ago.

    BTW, these are lame...

    No. Headed seats are all the rage right now. Where have you been?

    Re: 2012 GMC Yukon and Sierra Heritage Editions Debut

    GM should reward any GMC owner with courtesy upgrades for their centennial! This would show the appreciation that GMC has for their owners, and may even drive up sales due to the promotion. It would definitely bring traffic to the other GM brands and further drive GM into the hearts of Americans.

    In the sea of new automotive faces,
    there's nothing like the appreciation and beauty of an older model. Let's represent!
