2012 GMC Yukon and Sierra Heritage Editions to celebrate 100-years in New York

At the 2012 New York Auto Show, the 2012 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and the Sierra will celebrate the brand’s 100-year anniversary. A century ago, the GMC name first appeared on the front of a truck at this very same event.

Known as the 2012 GMC Yukon Heritage Edition and the 2012 GMC Sierra Heritage Edition, the models features original GMC logo design that debuted on the 1912 range of models and the words Heritage Edition.

“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.”

Three colors will be available for the special edition models including the exclusive Heritage Blue ($195), White Diamond ($995) or Onyx Black (no additional cost). Interior colors for the Yukon are Ebony and Light Tan.

The Heritage Edition on the 2012 Sierra starts at $2,645. Prices for the Yukon and Yukon XL package adds $1,970 to the base MSRP, or $1,820 for the Yukon XL ¾-ton model.
