Since 1991 the GMC Yukon has been the go-to large SUV for those in need of power, capability, and comfort; in 2021 the next generation Yukon fulfills those needs and more, thanks to the inclusion of more features, more space, more technology, and more power. Enjoy more from your SUV, and experience the 2021 GMC Yukon available at Calgary’s home for all things Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC: Jack Carter Chev GMC.
A bold new exterior design allows the brawny 2021 GMC Yukon to command both attention and respect, in equal measure. Classic SUV styling cues are found everywhere you look, from the Yukon’s broad shoulders and athletic stance to its angled roofline and imposing grille. Signature C-shaped LED lights are a brand new touch on the 2021 Yukon, leading the SUV forward in more ways than one, while chrome accents on the grille, windows, side panels, and front and rear fascia add a seriously luxurious touch.
The interior of the 2021 GMC Yukon offers similar luxury in the form of abundant passenger and cargo space, while trim levels like the classic Yukon Denali add butter-soft leather and woodgrain accents into the conversation. A sliding centre console adds smart utility and storage space for those in the front row, while comfortable seats with their own unique storage options allow the second- and third-row passengers to relax in this spacious SUV.

Not only does the 2021 GMC Yukon offer serious luxury, but it packs some serious power under the hood too. Featuring a Dynamic Fuel Management system, the standard 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine found in the Yukon powers it forward thanks to 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the variable valve timing of this direct injection gas engine, not to mention its 10-speed automatic transmission, you will find no shortage of both power and fuel efficiency when behind the wheel of the 2021 Yukon. However, the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali offers even more capability thanks to a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 packing a best-in-class 420 horses under the hood, as well as 460 lb-ft of torque for hauling the heaviest of loads.
Providing a smooth ride, even with all that power percolating beneath the hood, the available Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system will automatically adjust the ride height of the Yukon by up to 2-inches depending on the conditions and the road. Along with the advanced GMC Traction Select System, giving the driver the ability to make on-the-fly adjustments—from Normal Mode to Sport, Off-Road, and Tow/Haul—the 2021 Yukon is confident in its ability to power through any conditions or trails.

GMC Yukon Model Changes
For 30 years, the GMC Yukon has been providing drivers with serious capability and utility; however, the 2021 version provides even more power and space than even the 2020 GMC Yukon, thanks to the SUV’s all-new independent rear suspension. While that provides even greater passenger and cargo space inside the 2021 Yukon, an exterior refresh gives this GMC SUV some seriously bold style. A brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission aids in the fuel efficiency of the Yukon, while a pair of V8 engines give the 2021 Yukon more than enough power to handle anything the road throws your way.
