2021 GMC Yukon yells "First class!" even before you sit behind the wheel.
GMC Delivering credible off road capability with an exceptional driving experience
This all new addition to the GMC AT4 family is specifically designed for adventure seekers by incorporating upscale amenities, unique AT4 interior and exterior styling, and rugged capability to maneuver the road less traveled. The taller stance and higher hood line of Yukon’s front underscores the large, strong look of a powerful SUV. This proud appearance is amplified by a redesigned sculpted hood and new grille situated between updated signature C-shaped LED lighting elements.
The more sophisticated roofline is designed so the eye is directed to the back of the vehicle for an overall sense of motion. Chrome molding across the vehicle accentuates this overall feeling of movement. For Next Generation Yukon Denali, this new design was taken above and beyond in terms of craftsmanship, attention to detail and integration of premium materials. For instance, the Denali exclusive grille features over 10,000 surfaces, with each single piece created to be different from the rest but elicits a harmonious design.
The 2021 powertrain lineup now features two enhanced gas engines and an all-new segment exclusive Duramax diesel†. Regardless of your choice of powertrain, each one is paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission and have been engineered to deliver the capability you need. Standard for Yukon trims SLE, SLT and AT4 is the 5.3L EcoTec V8 engine , which offers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The standard powertrain for Yukon Denali is the 6.2L EcoTec V8 engine, giving you a best-in-class 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. ■
