Every so often, General Motors introduces a full redesign for their core products – products that often have an ardent, change-resistant customer base. For 2019, it was its full-size pickup trucks; for 2020, it was the Chevrolet Corvette; for 2021, it's the GMC Yukon (and its brethren, the Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, and Cadillac Escalade).
The new 2021 GMC Yukon wears a similar profile as the outgoing model, but has in fact been treated to a ground-up redesign, with fresh style, a revamped suspension, and an overhauled interior. A Yukon AT4 model joins the lineup, and will certainly woo some buyers with its ready-for-the-trail styling and standard off-road equipment.
For all the new bits and pieces, flying under the radar remains the forte of the big yet dapper Yukon. This is particularly true with the opulent Denali trim, which treads closer to Cadillac territory than ever before.
