General Motors Co. this summer will offer the 2016 GMC Yukon SLT Premium Edition, a special model with chrome trim features.

The SLT Premium Edition includes 22-inch chrome wheels with a unique look, a unique designed chrome grille, a polished exhaust tip and chrome body-side moldings, the automaker said Wednesday. It will be available on Yukon and Yukon XL vehicles.

“The new Yukon SLT Premium Edition adds distinction and personalized style to the already well-appointed Yukon SLT model,” Stu Pierce, senior marketing manager for GMC trucks & full-size SUVs, said in a statement.

The special package costs about an extra $3,000 and is added on top of the SLT model pricing. The 2016 Yukon SLT begins at $59,390 including destination charge.

Through April, Yukon sales are up 9.3 percent this year, while Yukon XL sales are up 8.3 percent.
