GMC has launched its 2021 Yukon and Yukon XL across the Middle East. The latest iteration of the brand’s flagship SUV features a bolder design, more spacious interior and the latest technology features.
This year the Yukon lineup is headlined by two of GMC’s high-performing sub-brands: Denali and the first-ever AT4.
“Despite its modern convenience features, the 2021 Yukon retains its indomitable off-road credentials,” said Luay Al Shurafa, President and Managing Director, General Motors, Africa and Middle East. “Designed all-new from the ground up, we are confident the all-new Yukon range will exceed customer expectations and continue to dominate the roads like never before,” he added.
For 2021, the Denali’s signature Galvano chrome grille is larger and more detailed. GMC says the grille features over 10,000 individual reflective surfaces. The familiar C-shaped front lighting signature is formed by a “light blade” that delivers uniform LED illumination for the daytime running lamps.
The new Yukon’s cabin has also been completely redesigned and comes with available features such as Center Console Fridge and a choice of four unique colour themes.
The 2021 Yukon Denali is powered by a 6.2-litre V8 that puts out 420 horsepower, while the standard engine is a new 5.3-litre V8. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
This year, the Yukon gets an AT4 trim that blends comfort with off-road prowess, making the vehicle more prepared for outdoor adventures. In addition, the 2021 Yukon also benefits from available four-corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension that GMC claims delivers optimal ride quality and can raise the body by up to 2 inches (50 mm) for additional ground clearance when going off-road.
