The 2021 Yukon Denali clearly debuted in Vail, Colorado on Tuesday.
Just afore we bankrupt the books on 2019, Chevrolet showed us its aboriginal big boys, the 2021 Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. The full-size ‘utes debuted with an alternative air suspension, awfully bigger interiors and alternative agent power. But their premieres meant one added thing: GMC versions were on the way.
So acceptable to 2020, and the admission of the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. These stablemate ancestors avowal a lot of the above improvements as Chevy’s SUVs, but booty things up a cleft with bigger looks, added accessible tech and a fancy-pants Denali trim that differentiates itself from bottom models bigger than anytime before.
Now playing: Watch this: 2021 brings the first-ever GMC Yukon AT4
Just like the Tahoe and Suburban, the 2021 Yukon and Yukon XL are bigger than antecedent versions. The accepted Yukon grows 6.1 inches in length, benumbed on a 4.9-inch best wheelbase, while the gargantuan XL stretches out by 0.9 inch and 4.1 inches, respectively. The SUVs’ rear legroom grows by 10.1 inches (2.2 inches for XL), and all-embracing burden amplitude increases by 28.2 cubic anxiety (23 cubic anxiety for XL).
The Yukon ambit will be offered with the above powertrain options as the Tahoe and Suburban, too, with a 5.3-liter V8 confined as the abject engine, bearing 355 application and 383 pound-feet of torque. A 6.2-liter V8 is alternative (or accepted on the range-topping Yukon Denali), with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Finally, GM’s 3.0-liter Duramax I6 agent will be available, with a stout 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. All of these engines are akin to a 10-speed automated transmission, and the gas engines affection stop-start tech as able-bodied as GM’s Dynamic Fuel Management system, which allows them to run on as little as two cylinders at a time.
The 2021 Yukon should action above ride affection to its predecessor, acknowledgment to the admittance of a multilink rear abeyance — again, aloof like in the Tahoe and Suburban. The AT4 and Denali trims appear with a added adult Magnetic Ride Ascendancy setup, and these models can be optioned with a four-corner air suspension, for the ultimate in on-road comfort. The air abeyance has a self-leveling feature, which helps aback accustomed abundant burden or towing, and drivers can accession the ride acme by 2 inches aback off-roading, for bigger arena clearance. Added driveline tech that’ll accomplish the 2021 Yukon a bigger on-road aerialist includes an cyberbanking limited-slip differential, as able-bodied as a two-speed alteration case for the four-wheel-drive system.
As ahead mentioned, the Yukon gets a new AT4 trim for 2021, agnate to the one apparent on the Sierra auto (as able-bodied as the 2021 Canyon, which GMC additionally appear alongside the adapted Yukon on Tuesday). GMC affairs to action AT4 versions of all its cartage by the end of 2020. The Yukon AT4 is set afar with altered exoteric architecture elements, including 20-inch wheels, drift plates and red accretion hooks. The AT4 additionally gets an off-road approach in its Traction Select system, covering seats with appropriate adverse stitching, a acrimonious council wheel, acrimonious and cooled advanced seats and acrimonious second-row seats.
The Yukon Denali can be had with 22-inch auto — in chrome, of course.
Speaking of the interior, again, it’s a lot like the Chevy SUVs. A 10-inch axial touchscreen manages infotainment duties, with accepted Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. GMC confirms the Yukon can additionally be had with the 15-inch head-up affectation begin in the Tahoe and Suburban, which it says is the better in the class.
Love it or abhorrence it, GMC is applicable the Yukon with a push-button gear-shifter, anchored to the larboard of the infotainment screen. At atomic this frees up amplitude in amid the advanced passengers, area GMC says it now offers an alternative power-sliding centermost console, which can move aback up to 10 inches to board a ample purse or bag. I wouldn’t go as far as calling it ingenious, but it’s chic nonetheless.
For the aboriginal time, the range-topping Yukon Denali absolutely has a hardly altered autogenous architecture from the blow of the ambit — it’s not aloof some added badging and altered covering colors. Compared with the accepted Yukon, including the AT4, which has a low birr band and “floating” infotainment screen, the Denali absolutely encompasses the 10-inch affectation aural the dashboard, with a brace of vents ample on top. Accept a attending at the similarities and differences below.
AT4 up top, Denali below. Which do you prefer?
In accession to the specific dashboard design, Denali models get altered seats with arresting bond and altered autogenous blush combinations. Outside, the chrome-tastic Denali analysis is obvious, and GMC says the grille is “larger and added detailed, with a absolute dimensional arrangement featuring over 10,000 alone cogitating surfaces.” That sounds… bright. Too bright.
Being the fanciest Yukon, the Denali comes accepted with all sorts of stuff, including the above 6.2-liter V8, Magnetic Ride Ascendancy anatomy (the air abeyance is optional) and LED exoteric lighting. Added aliment can be added on, like 22-inch auto and a across-the-board sunroof.
A cardinal of disciplinarian abetment technologies are on offer, admitting abounding of them are add-ons. Every Yukon comes accepted with advanced blow abetment with low-speed autobraking, banal apprehension and acropolis authority assist. SLT, AT4 and Denali trims add lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot ecology and lane-change assist. A 360-degree camera is accessible on the SLT and AT4, but is accepted on the Denali. Adaptive cruise ascendancy is alone accessible as an advantage on the top-tier Denali. And finally, GMC will action the air-conditioned “see-through” trailering camera tech it aboriginal adapted to the Sierra pickup.
The 2021 Yukon will access in dealerships this summer, and we’ll accept final appraisement advice accessible afterpiece to that time. Currently, a absolutely loaded Yukon XL Denali can run up abreast $80,000 with options, and we apprehend the 2021 archetypal to appear at a agnate cost, authoritative it the best big-ticket of GM’s new SUVs. Well, until the new Escalade shows up in February, anyway.
