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.
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.
