2021 GMC Yukon Production-Intent Tail Lamps Spied12
GM is in the midst of a major product overhaul, with every one of its full-size SUVs slated to receive a new-generation by the 2021 model year. Naturally, that includes the upcoming 2021 GMC Yukon, which will represent the fifth-generation of the model. Now that we’ve gotten a good look at the upcoming full-sizer, we’re now getting a look at the large SUV’s tail lamps.
Unsurprisingly, the redesigned 2021 GMC Yukon tail lamps are covered in white netting and are obscured by additional strips of camouflage. Luckily, there are still some additional details we can parse out.
Notably, the interior lighting graphics are a departure from those of the current, fourth-generation Yukon model. What’s more, we expect the tail lamp housing shape to also change. That said, the 2021 GMC Yukon appears to have a somewhat familiar upright tail lamp design, thereby enhancing the vehicle’s natural boxiness and height.
The particular model seem here is the Yukon XL Denali, which is the range-topping trim level of the extended-length variant. However, these production-intent tail lamps will undoubtedly find a place across the future GMC Yukon lineup, regardless of length and trim level.
Also note the quad exhaust tips, which should add even more flair to the updated tail section.
We recently got our first look at the production grille of the next-gen Yukon Denali, which appears to offer polished horizontal slats that resemble that of the current GMC Sierra Denali.
Like the rest of GM’s full-size SUV line, which also includes the Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, and Cadillac Escalade / Escalade ESV, the 2021 GMC Yukon will ride on the latest GM T1 platform, the same that underpins the current 2019 GMC Sierra and 2019 Chevrolet Silverado.
Further updates for the 2021 GMC Yukon will include a redesigned interior, new infotainment goodies, a lighter weight, and a new independent rear suspension.

They cannot get rid of those door mounted mirrors soon enough. They look awful!
They don’t look terrible IMO.
What I don’t get is why they move the mirrors to the door, yet they still leave the black piece of plastic.
I would respectfully disagree. Having the mirrors mounted on the door instead of on the a-pillars allow for better visibility at the front sides of the vehicle while driving. I think they look quite distinct on GM’s upcoming full-size BOF SUVs.
Yea I don’t mind them either. Espeuwhen you get massive tow mirrors, enough of you visibility is blocked, it’s nice to get some back.
Those who complain likely have no experience or never will be in the market for the vehicle anyways.
Big visibility change from the driver’s seat moving those mirrors.
Having driven plenty of T1 trucks, its a welcomed change and can stick around.
I agree. They look like the arms sticking out of Mr
Potato head. And for all of you screaming about visibility. If you are moving forward you should have already seen the object or area before the mirror can block it. Look forward scan the road with your eyes. You dont gain much in relationship to the ugliness . Just stop it.. and put the mirrors back where they’ve been since jesus walked the earth. I cant recall anyone blaming an accident on the mirror being on the pillar. Looks ok I guess on some cars but definitely not on pickups and large suvs. Especially the gm pickups. Plain awful.
THE EXHAUST PIPES ARE GLORIOUS, SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THE SIERRA FROM THE GET GO.
Agreed. There’s something nice about no nonsense quad exhausts like that. No fake tips, no unnecessary shaping.
Hopefully the tail lamps won’t be the only thing to distinguish the 2021 GMC Yukon and the 2019 Yukon because it’s insanity like this has allowed RAM to jump ahead in sales with their trucks as the design team needs some younger blood as a room of 50 and 60-year old guys is the fastest way to failure.
Funny thing is the new RAM truck looks so much like the old one the tailamps are the only way I can instantly tell the new model in a rear 3/4 view. That truck is designed for 60 yr olds, it’s so boring it hurts. All RAM needs is MORE chrome and some whitewall tires, that would suit the styling well.
It’s just tail lamps! Relax, young whippersnapper!
I spotted what looked to be this suv in Pittsburgh yesterday. It was boxy and large. All covered in camouflage.
