The GMC Yukon AT4 full-size crossover entered the market for the 2021 model year, when the -generation nameplate entered the market. The Yukon AT4 is squarely focused on “rugged adventure,” and provides premium off-road inspired design cues to match its strong capability.
“Our mission with the next-generation Yukon was to create an off-road capable vehicle with a premium interior, advanced technology and class-leading space for eight people and their cargo,” said Jim Danahy, executive chief engineer of full-size trucks.
Key features of the AT4 include:
- Two-speed transfer case
- 20-inch Goodyear all-terrain tires
- Traction Select System with off-road mode
- Hill Descent Control
- Skid plates protecting key areas of the underbody
- AT4-exclusive leather appointed seats and stitching
- Unique Jet Black interior color theme with Brandy accents
- Heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats and heated second-row outboard seats
The first-ever GMC Yukon AT4 features a unique front fascia that both visually carries the rugged all-terrain look and supports off-road capability. Coupled with the available four-corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension, the AT4 can raise and offer an additional 2 inches (50 mm) of ground clearance. When at this maximum height, the Yukon AT4 offers a nearly 32-degree approach angle for added off-road capability.
Following the AT4 color scheme, the GMC Yukon AT4 provides a contrast to Denali’s chrome-oriented look around the exterior, with trim characterized by body color or dark accents throughout, as well as a pair of red recovery hooks, similar to the Sierra AT4.
For the 2022 model year, the Yukon AT4 is expected to receive minor changes and updates.
