Continuing its legacy as one of America’s favorite family-focused SUVs, the 2021 GMC Yukon is poised to introduce some exciting updates when it launches later this year. As the first iteration of an all-new generation, this model will provide improved towing capacity, increased interior space, and heightened fuel economy. Here’s a preview of the 2021 GMC Yukon.
The 2021 Yukon’s available 5.3-liter V8 engine increases power output to 355 horsepower, resulting in a 20 percent increase in towing capacity over prior years. When properly equipped, the Yukon XL can tow a staggering 8,400 pounds. The improved power won’t translate to reduced efficiency, with even the most powerful engine boasting a modest increase in efficiency over the 2020 model.
Due in part to the fact that the 2021 GMC Yukon is six inches longer than the 2020 model, both passenger space and cargo volume are more plentiful than before. The third row has 10.1 inches of additional legroom in the standard model, and 12.3 inches in the XL. Meanwhile, you’ll have 23 more cubic feet of space for storage, adding up to a gigantic maximum of 144.7 cubic feet.
The 2021 GMC Yukon is shaping up to be the best version yet, and we will have it in stock soon at Transwest Buick GMC in Denver, Colorado. Currently, we still have the 2020 Yukon in stock, so get a great deal on it here before it’s gone.
