So we finally get a chance to see the upcoming 2021 GMC Yukon Denali. Previously, we have seen the forthcoming Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. There is a hot topic related to the online leak of the new Escalade. And now we get to know the brand new Yukon.
This upcoming Yukon was covered with some psychedelic camouflage when it was discovered by spy photographers. There is only a little part of this Yukon that doesn’t wear any camouflage. But, the large chrome grille of this car hints a Yukon Denali range.
From these spy shots, we can say that General Motors wants its full-size SUV to be different from its other trucks such as the Suburban and Tahoe. The model seen in the spy shot was the short-wheelbase version of Yukon that resembles GMC Tahoe.
Meanwhile, the long-wheelbase version of Yukon, the XL trim, is known to share identical styling to the Suburban. However, the automaker attempted to make it seem exclusive by designing the new Yukon blockier. Then, how’s the review of Yukon Denali interior and exterior?
2021 GMC Yukon Denali Interior
The blockier design of Yukon’s front-end looks a bit identical to the GMC Sierra pickup. But, the rear end is nothing similar since the new Yukon shares similarities with Chevy SUVs at this point. Outside, the 2021 Yukon is particularly expected to be more appealing than before.
When it comes to the interior, there is nothing exposed in these spy shots. But, it is safe to say that potential buyers could expect many new things from the upcoming Yukon Denali. Some believed that the interior of the new Yukon will get much improvement.
This is especially true for the Denali trim. As one of the top-tier trims offered by GMC, the upcoming Yukon Denali should offer exclusive materials inside. So, expect for luxurious leather upholstery and other premium materials applied throughout the new Denali interior.
2021 Yukon Denali interior should offer a long list of safety and comfort features as well. This full-size SUV must continue to offer advanced technology to make sure its driver and passengers comfort. Upgraded infotainment features should be looked forward too.
The 8-inch GMC infotainment system may stay the same. Then, infotainment features like 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, charging options, Apple CarPlay support, and Android Auto support will remain available in the new Yukon Denali. All these features will help you stay connected even during traveling.
2021 GMC Yukon Denali Redesign & Changes
In addition to the well-equipped features inside, the new Yukon Denali should offer more reliable features in the exterior too. Despite the changes in the exterior design, we can still say that the new Yukon Denali will have an impressive appearance.
Plus, premium materials applied by General Motors to the new Denali should make it undoubtedly remarkable than the other full-size SUVs in its class. The potential buyers of 2021 GMC Yukon Denali could expect several premium wheel options including a 22-inch 6-Spoke Chrome.
Moreover, a hands-free liftgate must remain the same from the previous model year. You could also look forward to the illuminated power-retractable steps that become a highlighted exterior feature in the existing Yukon Denali. Then, what are the exterior colors available for this new Yukon?
We believe that the new Denali will offer similar exterior colors to the current model. This means you can expect Quicksilver Metallic, Dark Sky Metallic, Onyx Black, White Frost Tricoat, Satin Steel Metallic, Crimson Red Tintcoat, Dark Sapphire Blue, and others.
Under the hood, a brand new independent rear suspension will become a highlighted update for the upcoming Yukon Denali. Just like the one applied for the new Suburban and Tahoe, this setup will help expand cargo and cabin space of the new Yukon Denali.
Before the official 2021 Yukon Denali release date is announced, it is reported that the car will have an identical engine lineup with its siblings. So, you should expect the new Yukon to be powered by a 5.3L V-8 engine.
Meanwhile, an optional engine of 6.2L V-8 is also available to choose from. Different from the previous model, you can look forward to a turbo-diesel 3.0L inline-six engine as an optional powertrain as well. This engine option is supposed to make the new Yukon even more powerful.
Just like its predecessor, the new Yukon Denali is expected to offer powerful performance that helps drive with control and self-assurance. The trailering performance must remain amazing as well. It will be supported by a seven-way connector and trailer sway management.

The new Yukon may share some identical elements with its siblings, but in terms of prices, there would be something different for sure. 2021 GMC Yukon price should be more expensive than its siblings, especially for the fully loaded Denali trims.
Meanwhile, an off-road trim level is expected to be obtainable in the lineup of this new Yukon. This off-road trim should be equivalent to the Chevrolet’s Z71. Unfortunately, the exact pricing for this new Yukon hasn’t been officially released yet.
