As we covered a few days ago, Jeep is currently prepping a new three-row SUV based on the Ram 1500 pickup. Slated to carry the Wagoneer nameplate, the new full-size, body-on-frame utility will compete head-to-head with the 2021 GMC Yukon and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe. Interestingly, all three models are practically identical with regard to exterior sizing.
While we’ll have to wait for the official numbers for final verification, initial spy shots reveal that the camo-clad prototypes for both the new Wagoneer and the new 2021 GMC Yukon sport the same exterior dimensions. Thus, we can add the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe to the mix as well, given its close relation to the new Yukon.
General Motors is expected to reveal the new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe next week alongside the next-generation Chevrolet Suburban. Meanwhile, the 2021 GMC Yukon is expected to drop sometime in the near future, while the 2021 Jeep Wagoneer will hit the scene midway through the 2020 calendar year.
The next-gen GM trucks will utilize the new GM T1 truck platform, switching over to a new independent rear suspension in the process. Both the 2021 GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe will utilize the latest Global B electrical architecture as well.
As for numbers and specs regarding the exterior size, the 2021 GMC Yukon will be roughly the same size as the current model. For reference, we’ve listed the current model’s dimensions below:
|Dimension||Measurement (in. / mm)|
|Wheelbase||116 / 2946|
|Overall Length||203.9 / 5179|
|Overall Width||80.5 / 2045|
|Overall Height||74.4 / 1890|
|Track (front)||68.7 / 1745|
|Track (rear)||68.7 / 1744|
|Ground Clearance||8 / 203|
As evidenced by the two-tiered image at the top of this post, we would expect similar figures from the new Jeep Wagoneer as well.
