The 2021 GMC Yukon arrived in January to introduce a brand-new generation for the nameplate, offering up a complete overhaul that includes new styling, new technology, extra interior space, and a new off-road-oriented AT4 trim level. As before, the new Yukon is also offered in an extended-length XL configuration, and now we’re taking a look at how the new XL model lines up against the outgoing generation with regard to pricing.
So then, how does the new GMC Yukon XL line up against the previous generation? Let’s take a look at the numbers:
|Trim Level||2021 GMC Yukon XL||2020 GMC Yukon XL||+/- 2021|
|AT4||Not available in 2WD||Not available for 2020 model year||N/A|
|AT4||$68,795||Not available for 2020 model year||N/A|
- All prices include the destination fee.
- AT4 trim level new for 2021 model year.
As we can see, pricing really doesn’t change much between the old 2020 model year and brand-new 2021 model year, and that’s somewhat surprising, given the latest-gen GMC Yukon comes with a huge number of updates, such as a new platform, new interior features, and a new design. That said, the Denali trim is $600 more than the previous 2020 model year, but on balance, that really isn’t too much more cash for the range-topping Yukon.
What’s more, the pricing differences for the 2021 Yukon XL are nearly identical to those between the new and old model for the standard-length Yukon, where we also see identical pricing for the lower trims, plus a $700 increase for the Denali.
We should also note that the AT4 trim is new for the 2021 model year, and thus, and does not have an equivalent trim from 2020. Our pricing table also uses figures for the better-equipped SLT trim, rather than the stripped-down SLT Standard Edition trim.
Finally, all prices listed include the destination fee, while 4WD adds a flat $3,000 for all trims.
