GMC Yukon and Sierra Heritage Editions going to New York image

GMC has recently announced its intention to develop special editions of the Yukon and Sierra, which will be named the Heritage, in order to celebrate their 100th anniversary.

According to the North American based automaker, the GMC Yukon Heritage and the GMC Sierra Heritage special editions will be officially presented to the public on the 4th of April, at the 2012 New York Auto Show. GMC says that the Yukon and Sierra will be coming with a chrome exterior trim, large 20-inch aluminum wheels, along with other interesting features.

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

The GMC Sierra Heritage will come with exterior badges, embroidered front floor mats and front headrests, chrome on the door moldings, mirror caps and door handles, 20-inch aluminum wheels, EZ-Lift locking tailgate, rear wheelhouse liners, Universal Home Remote, adjustable pedals, rear park assist and rear camera.

The GMC Yukon are also coming with the Heritage Edition exterior badges and embroidered front floor mats and front headrests, along with the additional 20-inch wheels (optional), and the SLT-2 Equipment Package with heated second-row seats, heated side mirrors, power-operated lift gate and 10-way memory seats wrapped in leather. The Heritage Package costs 1,970 USD on the Yukon and Yukon XL and 2,645 USD on the Sierra.
