The 2021 GMC Yukon is a Modern Extra Large SUV With an Available Diesel Engine! here in America the full-size SUV segment has always been a very successful one and GM has always enjoyed a pretty big chunk of the sales pile with the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC, Yukon twins now one thing that people often forget is the Yukon name actually came out about three years prior, to the Tahoe back in 1992 and today I'm in Vail Colorado with the all-new 2021 GMC Yukon this is the all-new fit generation, model it now rides on the same platform that underpins the new GMC Sierra it finally. Has an all independent suspension at the. Back and for those of you who are looking for diesel power GMC is now offering a three liter turbo diesel from the GMC. Sierra so they will be unveiling the truck officially later tonight but until then we're actually getting a chance to drive these pre-production camouflage models so while a full review will come. At a later date tonight, at Sycamore slogan so GNC has finally taken the wraps off of the all-new 2021 at UConn this particular wonder that I'm showing you here is actually the Yukon XL. So the extra-long version it's the GMC version of the suburban. The Denali version has its own unique front fascia and of course when you think of Denali I immediately. Think of a Yukon this was the car that essentially started the Denali sub-brand back in 1999 you can see the front fascia of the, all-new fit generation has a look that it's very much a family resemblance to. The Sierra which i think is a good thing this is one handsome looking front fascia if you guys look at the 84 it has its own a black. Finished grille this one here with the Denali has the chrome satin look these full LED headlights have the signature c-shape LED you have, an LED low and high beam LED turn signals LED fog lights more, of that silver trim this to me looks a lot better versus the Tahoe and the suburban. Trim especially if you look at the the Tahoe with that rst or that v71 package would have that odd-looking front fascia of course the Yukon 84 is going to mimic that vehicle, little bit more closely I'm really over to the side you can see this this one here is the XL which means. It's about two feet longer versus the regular Yukon in general because this is riding on an all-new platform, the Yukon has a five, inch longer wheelbase and about a six inch longer in overall length the XL has about the same stretched in the wheelbase but it's not, quite as long overall it around 210 inches long for the regular one this is now one of the biggest of the full-size SUVs a little bit longer now than the. Ford Expedition now of course the big news. With this all new versions GMC and Chevy have finally given this thing an all independent suspension there's a rear there's a real independent rear suspension. As a multi-link design and they've also added four corner air suspension that is a segment first the Chevy version also offers it I imagine whenever. A Cadillac comes out with.
The Escalade that will also offer that this one has you can see here is the Denali and it has a nice set of 22 inch. Wheels that's right these are 22s wrapped in Bridgestone tires they look great if you guys go for the 84 trim GMC will offer like a 20-inch. Wheel a little bit. Of a meteor tire so this is a more of the street oriented version people who you know enjoy buying a GMC Denali for the status symbol are, going to really like the way this looks now coming out back you can see the design has, another new change to it compared to the Tahoe and the Subaru and the suburban the. Taillights have their own unique look to them they're full LED tail light design you can see they kind of have that similar c-shape led that mimics, the front fascia you have a Denali badge splashed across the back here with the Yukon badge and then of course I really love the quad. Outlet exhausts on this thing I'm not entirely sure if it only comes on the Denali trim but it really just finishes. Off the look of this truck I think it looks fantastic and I really appreciate some of the differences that. GMC has made here versus the Chevy Tahoe and the suburban and opening up the trunk GMC has also. Improved the cargo capacity because of that independent rear suspension you can see holy crap there is. Over 40 cubic feet of space here and that's what the. Third row seat up if you fold everything down on this full-size XL version you get around 144 cubic feet of space that's basically rivaling that, of what you're gonna get in most minivans keep in mind that the, regular Yukon offers around 25 cubic feet of space which is again about 10 cubic feet more than what you got in the previous serration all because of that independent rear. Suspension all right so the exterior, of the new Yukon definitely looks a little different but let's hop into the interior of this Denali trim and shut the door yeah that. Actually sounds pretty solid so I'm really impressed and the other thing that also really impresses me is the fact that GMC put a unique interior on.
