Full-size SUV fans, rejoice. The redesigned 2021 GMC Yukon (and its corporate cousin, the Chevrolet Tahoe) is a better SUV than its predecessor in most of the ways that count. By stretching the SUV’s wheelbase and switching to an independent rear suspension design, the new 2021 Yukon has a much larger interior than before. Cargo space is significantly greater, and passenger comfort is dramatically improved for the second- and third-row seats.
Engines carry over from before, and some fuel economy ratings drop for 2021. However, a new turbodiesel six-cylinder power plant is coming soon, promising excellent fuel economy and potentially better towing capacity. With its V8 engines, the Yukon can’t match the best SUVs in the class when it comes to tugging a trailer. GMC also significantly upgrades the Yukon’s infotainment and driving assistance technologies, improves the SUV’s ride and handling characteristics, upgrades the four-wheel-drive system, and adds a new off-road-focused AT4 trim level for 2021.
