2021 GMC Yukon
The highly popular GMC Yukon is receiving a generation update for the year 2021, with an emphasis on the first-class experience. Appearance changes from the predecessor are immediately noticeable. A more confident and stately look emanates from Yukon, with every component crafted and fitted perfectly. On top of modernizing every aspect, GMC took it a step further, adding their AT4 off-road system to make the Yukon an off-roader to be respected.
Brand new grille and C-shape LED headlights accompany the redesigned hood to form the new face of the GMC Yukon. Roofline keeps its form all the way to the boot lid, maximising both the seating and cargo space.
Standing at 210 inches long, 81 inches wide without mirrors, 76.5 inches tall, and with a wheelbase of 120.9 inches, Yukon is the prime full-size SUV model. Towing capacity reaches astounding 8400 lbs, which will be more than enough for any needs.
The interior offers plenty of room and seating for eight, with a cargo volume of 25.5 cf³ behind the third row, 72.6 cf³ behind the second row, and impressive 122.9 cf³ behind the first row. The Yukon comes in an XL variant, with a longer wheelbase, improving legroom in the third row, increasing cargo volume, and fuel tank capacity, with a 100 lb lower towing threshold.
The behemoth that is the GMC Yukon needs a powerful engine underneath the hood, and that is exactly what you will find. Initially, the standard model comes with a 5.3-litre V8 engine, while Denali, the high-end package has a 6.2-litre V8. A 3.0L Duramax turbo diesel engine is planned to be added at a later date.
From the engine, power goes through a 10-speed automatic transmission to be delivered to either two or all four wheels. With the Denali, you will get Magnetic Ride Control, which monitors each wheel and adjusts the vertical suspension to enhance ride comfort.
