Affordable Luxury – the 2021 GMC Yukon

You know the GMC Yukon is a large-and-in-charge sports utility vehicle that offers three rows of comfortable seating for adults as well as capable towing for your trailer cargo. You also know that the Yukon is an SUV of its own right with unique features that set it apart from the competition. Completely redesigned for 2021, the GMC Yukon and the Yukon XL will prove even better equipped and roomier than previous versions of the vehicle.

What’s New

As previously stated, the GMC Yukon is completely redesigned for the upcoming 2021 model year. You’ll see improved cargo space as well as the aforementioned roomier cabin. Of course, there are plenty of other unique features that help the Yukon to stand head and shoulders above the competition.

One thing the latest Yukon will do that sets it apart from the rest — even the Chevrolet SUVs with which it has so much in common — is the addition of an independent rear suspension system. This change will truly make the GMC Yukon one of a kind!

The Yukon will rest on the same frame as its cousins the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Chevrolet Suburban (the Yukon taking a nod from the former and the Yukon XL following in the footsteps of the latter).

Trim Packages

The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL offer four different trim packages:

  • the SLE, or the base trim
  • the SLT, offering all the basic features with a few nice amenities
  • the AT4, an all terrain type of SUV
  • the Denali, the luxury model of the GMC Yukon

Let’s take a more in-depth look at each of the GMC Yukon’s trim packages and what each has to offer.


The base trim level is the SLE. It features the following basic amenities:

  • seating for nine passengers
  • 5.3L V8 gasoline EcoTec3 engine

The next trim level is the SLT. It offers many of the same features of the SLE with a few upgrades and choice of engine. You can also opt for a two-wheel drive version or a four-wheel drive Yukon. The SLT offers:
