The 2021 GMC Yukon lineup is headlined by an all-new and more upscale Yukon Denali and the first-ever Yukon AT4, taking Yukon into the premium off-road space. Yukon reaches a higher level of precise craftsmanship and premium accommodations through a combination of advanced features and class-leading technologies.
Yukon and Yukon XL drivers will have their choice among three engine options, highlighted by an all-new version of the lauded 6.2L V8 engine, delivering 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, more than any competitor. The standard engine is an all-new 5.3L V8. The 5.3L and 6.2L engines feature stop/start technology and new Dynamic Fuel Management that enables the engine to operate on two to eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power and efficiency.
Yukon’s propulsion lineup expands for 2021, as drivers can also select an available all-new 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel engine. The new diesel builds on GMC’s expertise with Duramax turbo-diesels offered in Sierra, Sierra HD and Canyon models.
All three engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and GMC’s Electronic Precision Shift push-button gear selector. Yukon and Yukon XL are expected to be the most fuel-efficient full-size SUVs with the Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel engine.
The new 2021 Yukon and 2021 Yukon XL go on sale this summer with production taking place at General Motors’ Arlington, Texas assembly facility. More details and complete specifications will be released closer to production.
