Looking for maximum space ― or maximum horsepower?

In 2021, interior dimensions increase throughout the cabin on both wheelbase models. If space is what you need, the 2021 Yukon XL delivers best-in-class cargo space (144.7 cu.-ft).

New on the 2021 Yukon is an exterior design that is accentuated by a more stylishly sculpted roof line. Its bold, strong look is thanks to a higher hood line, larger grille, and unique C-shaped LED lighting elements. Inside, all trim levels receive an interior refresh. The Yukon XL offers available second-row bucket seats that slide forward and backward to optimize legroom or cargo space. The available power sliding center console slides back 10 in. so you can store more items and hide and secure the items you want to keep out of sight.

The system raises the body up to two inches in order to deliver more ground clearance when traveling off road. Magnetic Ride Control (offered on the Denali trim) is a damping system sensor technology borrowed from the exotic sports cars space that delivers enhanced body control and handling in the new Yukon.

When it comes to entertainment tech, you’ll find a class-leading 10.2-in. diagonal touchscreen and the GMC Premium Infotainment System and available Navigation.

2021 GMC Yukon XL® More of Everything You Love

The extended length version of the GMC Yukon gets a redesign in all the right places in 2021. Experience the advantages of an increased wheelbase, new independent rear suspension, and more cargo space and legroom in the 2021 GMC Yukon XL.

2021 GMC Yukon XLMore Interior Space

An increased wheelbase equals a larger interior, due to more space between the axles. A larger wheelbase helps improve stability and deliver a more comfortable ride. For 2021, the wheelbase on the GMC Yukon XL increases four inches to a whopping 134.1 inches.

2021 GMC Yukon XLNew Independent Rear Suspension

The new independent rear suspension on the 2021 Yukon XL is designed to help you better react to uneven or changing road conditions and deliver an overall smoother ride ― especially for your passengers in the back row. Handling improves, too, allowing you to better navigate the roads that may be dotted with annoying potholes or cracks.

2021 GMC Yukon XLMore Cargo Space and Legroom

If you’re looking for a large SUV, chances are you prefer a lot of room ― to stretch, transport more people, or haul more gear. The 2021 GMC Yukon XL is taking interior comfort and utility to new heights with expanded legroom in the third row of 36.7 inches (from 34.5 inches) plus a couple more inches of cargo space (41.1 inches versus the previous 39.3 inches).
