General Motors introduced the 2021 GMC Yukon as an all-new fifth-generation for the luxury SUV nameplate. The lineup is once again topped by the Denali, which is replete with high-end features and finery. Now, we’re getting a look at the latest Yukon Denali as it rides on a set of 22-inch chrome wheels.
Recently posted to a Facebook fan page, this particular 2021 GMC Yukon Denali is equipped with the 22-inch 6-Split-Spoke Chrome wheels option, which are offered as a $2,995 upgrade installed by the dealer. The RPO code for these bad boys is SF1.
Covered in Summit White paint, which is offset by a black window tint and black detailing in the front bumper and lower body pieces, the big chrome wheels on this SUV are complemented by additional chrome bits for the window surrounds (alternatively called daylight openings, or DLO), grille section, and additional trim bits. Indeed, the large front grille does well tie together with the polished metal in the corners, and helps to underline the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali’s premium appeal.
Under the skin, the next-gen 2021 GMC Yukon Denali is highlighted by a new chassis, specifically the GM T1 platform providing the underpinnings, just as it does for the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade, as well as the fourth-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
Making it move is a selection of three engine options, 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. All three engines pair with GM’s Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission.
Production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Arlington, Texas.
