NEXT GENERATION 2021 YUKON DENALI PREMIUM FULL SIZE SUV: AT YOUR COMMAND

SHARE:

The Next Generation 2021 Yukon Denali Premium Full size SUV epitomizes Professional Grade engineering—from a best-in-class 420 hp 6.2L V8 engine to an all-new available Active Response 4WD system (late availability). Add first-class interior amenities and you elevate Yukon Denali even further. Simply gripping the wheel takes hold of your senses—while also putting you in command of your surroundings. It rewards your sensibilities with confidence and craftsmanship at every turn. Yukon Denali is truly first class inside and out.

The words “first class” bring to mind sophistication, comfort and convenience. Yukon Denali delivers on all fronts. Behind its first-class amenities are some serious engineering, smart design and technical innovation—all crafted thoughtfully with you in mind. The goal? To maximize your control while making even the most complex features work with ease.

Welcome to the Next Generation Yukon Denali. Get ready to take command

PEAK DESIGN PRESENCE

Step into Yukon Denali’s cabin and you’re greeted by an interior designed and tailored to your taste. You’ll find an instrument panel unique to Yukon Denali — designed for the optimal display of both information and style — helping transform the cabin into a premium experience. You also have your choice of four, all-new Denali-exclusive color themes that feature premium leather appointments and authentic wood details. The leather appointments feature Denali-exclusive fractal seat stitching, which uses contrasting thread to create a meticulous X-stitch pattern that provides yet another distinctive premium detail. 

INNOVATIVE STORAGE

We all travel with things we can’t do without. The Next Generation Yukon Denali allows you to store them with merely the touch of a button, thanks to the class-leading available power-sliding center console (late availability). The console slides back up to 10" for easily accessible storage. Extended rearward, the console opens to reveal a space between the front row seats perfect for takeout food, a purse or bag. This position also makes the back cupholders and rear console controls more accessible to second-row passengers. There’s also a hidden storage drawer that can be secured while in Valet mode. In all, these innovations are designed to make life on the move a bit more convenient.

SHINE ON

For everyone’s enjoyment, an available panoramic sunroof brings more of the outside in, providing expansive skyward views through the dual-pane glass. Fresh air fills the cabin thanks to a tilt-sliding feature with express-open and -close. And the power sunshade filters just how much sun shines in. 

ROOM THAT MOVES

Increased leg room: The 2021 Yukon offers a 40 percent improvement (an additional 10") in third-row leg room compared to the 2020 Yukon.

Increased leg room: The 2021 Yukon offers a 40 percent improvement (an additional 10") in third-row leg room compared to the 2020 Yukon.

Another hallmark of first-class accommodations is having ample room to relax and plenty of space to store your gear. That’s why Yukon’s cabin has 40 percent more third-row leg room and 66 percent more cargo room behind the third row than the previous-generation Yukon. And both Yukon and Yukon XL offer best-in-class cargo room behind the first row with all seats folded down.

COMMAND ALL YOU SURVEY

While there’s plenty to see inside the cabin, 2021 Yukon Denali’s Premium Full size SUV high-tech command center with a class-leading available nine camera views helps you keep an eye on your exterior surroundings to maneuver confidently. These camera views can elevate your view in important driving situations, such as hooking up, driving with and backing a trailer into place, fitting into tight parking spaces, navigating out of your driveway and negotiating rugged unpaved terrain.

Easily accessed through Yukon Denali’s infotainment screen, these views include:

  • High Definition Surround Vision uses multiple cameras to display a digital overhead view of the area surrounding Yukon Denali at low speeds to help navigate close quarters such as parking spaces, tight off-road trails and rocky terrain.
  • Rear Camera Mirror doubles as a conventional rearview mirror or as a camera-based rearview mirror. Flip a switch and the available Rear Camera Mirror transforms your traditional rearview mirror into a wide camera view providing a less-obstructed view behind the vehicle while you’re driving.
  • Multicolor 15" diagonal Head-Up Display helps keep your focus on the road by projecting customizable vehicle information directly onto the windshield, such as Navigation, speed limit, driving speed, audio settings, Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert and more.

WIRELESS, SEAMLESS, EFFORTLESS

Convenient cordless control is yours with wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility. Without plugging in a single wire, Apple CarPlay connects your iPhone to Yukon’s infotainment screen, allowing access to Apple Music®, Apple Maps, Siri® and other functions. The same goes for wireless Android Auto compatibility, which connects you to Google Maps, Google Play Music, Google Assistant and plenty more resources through your Android phone.

SCREENING ROOM

All rows travel first class in Yukon Denali, including your rear-seat companions. The all-new available Rear-Seat Media System features two class-leading 12.6" diagonal touch-screens with screen-sharing and screen-tilting capabilities. Rear passengers can connect streaming devices, game consoles, tablets and smartphones through USB or HDMI ports. Each screen can be personalized with content for independent viewing. The system also plays audio through the wireless headphones included with the system, compatible Bluetooth®† headphones of your own or Yukon Denali’s full audio system. Rear-seat passengers can even suggest destinations and send navigation, directions to the front infotainment screen, helping the driver to remain focused on the road.

MUSIC TO YOUR EARS

Treat yourself—and anyone traveling with you—to a VIP concert-quality experience with the Denali-exclusive 14-speaker Bose® Audio System. Since every road trip is better when accompanied by a great soundtrack, audiophile quality sound flows through 14 speakers positioned, tuned and optimized so there isn’t a bad seat in Yukon Denali.

EXPERIENCE FIRST CLASS FOR YOURSELF

Speaking of sound, no matter how well Yukon Denali sounds here, there’s only one way to truly experience Yukon Denali’s first-class environment. That’s by taking a seat, taking command and losing yourself in a world you’ll find to be the only way to travel—the Next Generation 2021 Yukon Denali Premium Full size SUV.
