Stuff your skis, poles and friends into a vehicle that’s ill-suited for the task and you’re bound to have an adventure that’s better suited to a TV reality show rather than an awesome day on the slopes.

Enter the GMC Yukon AT4 “Ski SUV.” The Yukon AT4 is an all-terrain personal use vehicle with the size and functionality to carry all your gear and friends comfortably and the agility to navigate the winter weather ski enthusiasts crave.

“The Yukon AT4 builds on the fundamental strengths of GMC and Yukon by providing function and cargo-carrying ability with comfort,” said Keith Spondike, GMC portfolio manager. “Focus on the adventure and let the Yukon handle the rest.”

Production Yukon provides ideal combination of function and agility
The 2004 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL models feature several safety enhancements that provide the versatile SUV with the sure-footed capabilities of vehicles half its size. GM’s four-channel StabiliTrak stability enhancement system is standard on all Yukon and Yukon XL 1500 models and the revolutionary four-wheel-steering system, Quadrasteer, is available on all 2500 Series Yukon models.

StabiliTrak helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle in sudden maneuvers, particularly in low traction conditions, in emergency lane changes, and during avoidance maneuvers. If the system determines that the vehicle is not responding appropriately to the driver’s steering, StabiliTrak precisely reduces engine torque and applies exact amounts of pressure to the individual brakes to slow the vehicle and help bring it back to its intended path. Quadrasteer reduces curb-to-curb turning diameter by 20 percent, to 36.5 feet, and increases track width by 5 inches for unparalleled nimbleness, handling and on-highway control.

The ultimate All-Terrain “Ski SUV”
Building on the strengths of the Yukon base, the GMC Yukon AT4 “Ski SUV” features several innovations designed specifically for the ski enthusiast – most notably a modular pull-down sliding roof-rack system developed by SportRack. The unique cargo system can be slid down over the vehicle’s tailgate glass for easy ski and snowboard loading, then pushed back onto the roof in one smooth motion. An interior cargo load assist system also is designed for easy load/unload access with telescoping rails that allow the load “floor” to slide in and out. The Yukon AT4 also features a dual-opening center console that gives both driver and passenger easy access to the compartment and power retractable running boards that assist with entry/exit without compromising ground clearance while driving.

Unique creature comforts for skiers in the interior include a cargo air heater to warm ski boots and gloves and a fuel-fed cabin pre-heater system that can warm the interior of the vehicle prior to start up. Aniline leather seating surfaces and interior appointments by Garden State Tanning combined with Yukon AT4’s enhanced Bose premium audio system creates a pampered driving experience.

Exterior styling as cool as “ice”
Proving that it’s as stylish as it is innovative, the GMC Yukon AT4 sports a variety of exterior enhancements that make the Ski SUV stand out from the crowd. Bathed in “White Ice” optically enhanced paint, the Yukon AT4 features a custom appearance package with wheel flares, unique grille and front/rear fascias to accentuate its Professional Grade styling. LED lighting on AT4’s D-pillars and AT4 badges along with 18-inch custom wheels add further distinction that this is not an ordinary SUV.

Off-road power and performance
With the agility and technology to help keep you on the road, Yukon AT4 has the power and suspension components to help you navigate off road as well. The AT4 show truck features a standard production Yukon Vortec 5300 V-8 engine that produces 295 horsepower and 330 lb.-ft. torque.

Off-road appointments include four-wheel drive, raised wheel-to-body height, all-terrain suspension components and tow hooks.
