General Motors unveiled the all-new 2021 GMC Yukon back in January, dropping cover on a freshly overhauled (re-engineered and redesigned) fifth-generation model. Now, we’re gaining new insight into what customers are expected to buy, as it was recently revealed that the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali will account for roughly 60 percent of sales in Canada.
The insight comes from National Marketing Manager, GMC Canada, Mark Alger, who addressed customer’s buying preference earlier today during a video conference with Canadian journalists.
According to Alger, GM Canada is expecting 60 percent of sales to go to the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali, 25 percent of sales to go to the off-road-oriented 2021 GMC Yukon AT4, and the remaining 15 percent to be split between the 2021 GMC Yukon SLE and 2021 GMC Yukon SLT.
Furthermore, 66 percent of sales are expected to go to the standard-length GMC Yukon, while 33 percent will go to the extended-length 2021 GMC Yukon XL. The standard-length 2021 GMC Yukon is 210.7 inches in terms of overall length, whereas the 2021 GMC Yukon XL is 225.7 inches long.
Essentially, customers in Canada trend towards the range-topping 2021 GMC Yukon Denali in terms of trim level preference, which will translate as into higher ATP (Average Transaction Price) for the SUV.
From what we understand, these numbers will see a parallel in the U.S. market.
As a reminder, the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali stands out for its bold chrome exterior treatment, exclusive interior design, and abundance of equipment.
Customers have three engine options to choose from with the latest 2021 GMC Yukon, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87, and the new-for-2021 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. The new diesel engine option has late availability, as GM Authority has covered in the past.
