General Motors is currently revamping its full-size SUV lineup, with the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban revealed in an exclusive media event earlier this month. Now, we have fresh info on the new Tahoe’s corporate cousin, the 2021 GMC Yukon, which will offer two different interior configurations depending on the trim level.
Although GM has yet to pull the wrapper off the new 2021 GMC Yukon, recent spy photos reveal what looks to be different dash configurations between various prototypes. The difference can be found with regard to the placement of the infotainment screen. The different configurations correspond with the different trim levels on offer, with the range-topping Yukon Denali offering an infotainment screen that’s integrated with the dash, and all other trim levels offering an infotainment screen that’s in a stand-up position higher in the dash.
In these particular photos, the lefthand picture is the range-topping Denali, while the righthand picture is the SLT trim level.
Although it’s not immediately obvious from these spy shots, the integrated screen in the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali will integrate with the digital gauge display behind the steering wheel. The setup will be similar to that of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which, as we covered previously, will feature a 38-inch curved display.
In addition to two new cockpit configurations, the 2021 GMC Yukon will also offer brand-new exterior styling, including a rising rear window line and quad rear exhaust pipes. Under the skin, the fresh utility will utilize the GM T1 vehicle architecture, as well as a new independent rear suspension setup. Both a standard-length version and extended-length Yukon XL will be offered.
The 2021 GM Yukon will officially break cover next month during an exclusive media event on January 14th in Vail, Colorado. Per usual, we’ll cover the debut as it happens, so make sure to tune in next month to see it all go down.
