GMC has released the pricing scheme for the 2021 Yukon and Yukon XL, with both models retaining their premium position in the automaker’s full-size SUV lineup.
For the coming model year, the GMC Yukon will have a starting price of $51,995 while the extended-wheelbase Yukon XL will be available for $54,595. This marks a price difference of $1,700 compared to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban that also underwent a redesign for 2021.
But when compared to their outgoing generation, the entry-level SLE models are only $100 more expensive.
The Yukon SLE trim comes standard with a 5.3-liter V-8 engine that makes 355 horsepower. It has a rear-wheel-drive and is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. A four-wheel-drive setup will cost buyers an additional $3,000 charge on all trim levels except for the off-road-oriented AT4, which is available with a standard 4WD and costs $66,905 for the Yukon and $68,795 for the Yukon XL.
For the range-topping Denali trim, the price for the Yukon starts at $69,695 while the Yukon XL begins at $72,395. It comes standard with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that makes 420 horsepower.
The Denali also includes a nicer interior styling and is available with all manner of option packages such as a panoramic sunroof, 22-inch wheels, an air suspension, and rear-seat entertainment screens. A Yukon XL Denali that comes with all additional features costs a little over $87,000.
According to GMC, certain Yukon models will eventually be offered with a turbo-diesel 3.0-liter inline-six engine as well for better fuel efficiency. But the automaker has not announced pricing for this engine option so far.
The 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL are expected to arrive at dealerships sometime this summer.
