The Denali trim for the 2021 GMC Yukon aims to attract buyers with its abundance of standard equipment, which includes Magnetic Ride Control suspension, satellite navigation and a Bose 14-speaker stereo.
The Denali trim level also comes standard with quite a lot of chrome exterior trim, including a mesh grille insert and door handles. Many customers like the upscale look that the extra chrome trim gives the SUV, but some customers prefer body color or black trim over shiny head-turning chrome.
This is where VIP Auto Accessories steps in. The St. Louis-based shop recently completed work on a 2021 GMC Yukon Denali whose owner requested they cover the vehicle’s chrome exterior trim with gloss black vinyl wrap. They also powder coated the factory 22-inch wheels in gloss black, smoked the amber side marker light lenses, painted the lower body side molding, painted the GMC-branded fender vents and painted the fog light bezels.
This 2021 GMC Yukon Denali, which left the factory covered in a layer of Satin Steel Metallic paint, looks much more sinister with black wheels and blacked-out exterior trim than with chrome parts, in our opinion. This aftermarket blacked-out treatment sort of reminds us of the Sport trim level for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which trades some of the chrome trim on the SUV for gloss black parts.
The GMC Yukon Denali is available with GM’s Duramax turbo-diesel 3.0L LM2 inline-six engine or 6.2L L87 V8 gas engine. They are both paired with the GM 10-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive or available four-wheel drive. Prices start at $68,195 for a Yukon Denali with the Duramax diesel and 2WD.
