The 2021 model year brings a complete overhaul for the GMC Yukon nameplate, with new styling, a new platform, new equipment, and a whole lot more. Customers are once again offered sumptuous luxury and comfort by way of the range-topping 2021 Yukon Denali trim level, and now, we’re taking a closer look in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
The first thing to notice about the new 2021 Yukon Denali is the restyled exterior, which comes with a reshaped front end punctuated by a larger polished grille. The grille once again comes with a bright Galvano chrome finish, and sports an intricate insert design. Complementary chrome trim can be found elsewhere on the body, giving the new look even more flash.
The nose also shows off with C-shaped front lighting signatures, LED daytime running lamps, and LED headlamps and fog lamps.
True to form for a premium full-size SUV, the 2021 Yukon Denali offers some big wheel options, with sizing up to 22 inches in diameter. Fourth-generation Magnetic Ride Control, plus Air Ride Adaptive Suspension are also on offer. In back, we find a set of LED tail lamps.
Moving into the cabin, the 2021 Yukon Denali is equipped with a unique interior design and dash layout. Unlike the rest of the lineup, the Denali trim level comes with an infotainment screen that’s integrated with the dash, rather than a stand-up screen as can be found across the rest of the lineup.
The 2021 Yukon Denali also comes with unique seating, with leather upholstery that’s hand-cut and stitched into a Denali-specific pattern. There’s wood trim, four unique interior color themes, and an optional panoramic sun roof as well.
Standard spec for the 2021 Yukon Denali is the naturally aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 producing 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, while the rest of the line gets the naturally aspirated 5.3L L84 V8 as standard.
