The 2021 GMC Yukon brings an all-new generation for the premium full-size SUV, with a new platform, new exterior dimensions, new styling, and a whole lot more. One of the headline changes for the overhauled nameplate is the introduction of the first-ever Yukon AT4, which adds a variety of off-roader equipment to the mix. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the new 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 with the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
The 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 kicks things off with a restyled front fascia, which includes a broad grille and C-shaped headlamp signatures. Lower in the fascia, the AT4 comes with a trim level-specific bumper section and skid plate, plus a pair of red recovery hooks similar to the GMC Sierra AT4 pickup.
We also find dark accents and trim throughout, as compared to the polished chrome-look of the plush Yukon Denali trim level.
Customers can equip their Yukon AT4 with optional Air Ride Suspension, which, at the max ride height setting, offers up to two inches of additional ground clearance. “When at this maximum height, the Yukon AT4 offers a nearly 32-degree approach angle for added off-road capability,” GMC explains.
In the corners, we find sizable 20-inch Goodyear all-terrain rubber, while additional skid plates help to protect vital mechanical components under the body. Hill Descent Control, Traction Select System with off-road mode, and a two-speed transfer case also add extra prowess in the rough stuff.
What’s more, 2021 GMC Yukon comes with a fresh interior design. AT4 models are equipped with an upright touchscreen high on the dash, a feature seen across the 2021 Yukon lineup, with the exception of the Denali trim level, which comes with an infotainment screen integrated directly into the dash. The AT4 is also offered with the new Power Sliding Center Console, which opens up additional storage space up front.
Cabin goodies specific to the Yukon AT4 include unique Jet Black upholstery with Brandy accents, plus exclusive leather seating and stitching. There’s also a heated steering wheel, a heating and ventilation feature for the front seats, and heated outboard seats on the second row.
The new 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 is the latest addition to the AT4 family, with every model in the GMC stable (with the exception of the GMC Savana van) slated to receive the AT4 treatment by the end of 2020.
