GMC announced today that it is expanding its Yukon SUV line with the addition of two new 2019 Graphite Editions. The Yukon Graphite Edition features a darkened exterior appearance, while the Yukon Graphite Performance Edition adds to this look vehicle performance upgrades. The Graphite Editions are available either Yukon or Yukon XL on SLT trim vehicles and can be ordered on with either 2WD or 4WD.

Ya know I had a similar thought in my previous post then deleted it but now that you've broke the ice. That is 50% more than I paid for my first house and a good chunk of what we paid for this one and we haven't had it but about 20 years. It's the value of my fathers current home and four times what he paid for it. 

 

Inflation is when the cost of goods goes up 3% and my wages go up 3-3.25%. You track wages vs cost of good over 50 years and  you will find inflation 3%, wages some. We've lost 40% of our earning power and why the wife gets to be a full time housekeeper/nanny/ and whatever other 60 hour a week job she likes and the guy gets to hold down 2 or more. Those kids still at home in their mid 30's in yoga pants and man buns isn't a drag either. :lol: 

 

Told the wife a long time ago, "When the commercial world can no longer find ways to EARN money the will find ways to legalize STEALLING it". Seems I was right.

Is it safe to assume that they are only going to offer the 6.2 in the SWB version like Chevy did for 2018 full size SUV's? It would be nice to have the 6.2 option in the XL without having to get the Denali.

      For Sale.....(I originally posted this awhile back and it got deleted, but the rules have since changed)
       
      I leased a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation Edition 4x4 with a 6 1/2 ft bed. I had the tonneau cover for 2 years. I dont have the truck anymore, therefore, I have no use for the cover. It’s in excellent condition and im asking $200.00. It comes with rails and all the clamps. 
       
      Serious inquiries and I will email pics. Also, I live in NJ. Thanks.

      1999 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton 4X4 240k miles
       
      I am hearing a loud single pop/clunk from the front end passenger side when I turn the steering wheel sharp LEFT ONLY in forward and reverse.  I can replicate the noise nearly 100% of the time if the truck is on a moderate to steep incline.  This only happens at slow speeds.  I feel next to nothing through the steering column.  I hear the most out the front passenger window and feel the pop/clunk through the floor of the cab.  I have replaced the intermediate steering shaft with the updated GM part.
       
      Any direction would be really appreciated.

      I’m at my wits end over this 
       
      I’m not sure if it’s been discussed on here yet but I’m having a serious problem with my truck going into limp mode at random.
       
      I have a 2007 GMC Sierra, SLT, Z71 (newer body style) 
       
      It runs fine for weeks, sometimes even months. Out of nowhere it’ll go into limp mode with these dash warnings:
       
      ”engine power reduced”
      ”traction control off”
      ”service traction control”
      ”service stabilitrack”
       
      Readings are:
      P2138
      C0242
      C0899
      C0900
       
      I replaced the engine due to a cam and lifter problem about 3 yrs ago. The truck started acting up about a month after the engine was replaced. The engine is still under warranty. 
       
      -I’ve changed the gas pedal sensor.
      -I’ve changed the throttle body and throttle positioning sensor. 
      -I’ve changed the electronic control module (ECM)
      -I’ve changed the electronic brake control module (EBCM)
      -I’ve even replaced the battery cables
      -I’ve added a new ground wire, thinking I had a bad ground somewhere. 
      - I’ve checked and cleaned all connections into the throttle body, gas pedal, and all the plug ins I could see and get to. 
       
      I had a guy tell me to look at the brake booster and possibly change that. It might be leaking or something. I’m not sure if that’s accurate advice and I haven’t done anything to the brake booster. 
       
      Other than fooling with the brake booster, I’ve literally done everything I know to do except change the entire wiring harness!!! I don’t want to do that though. I love the truck and I don’t want to sell it but Im tired of putting money into it. 
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m on the verge of pushing it off of a tall cliff!
       
      help!
