2021 GMC Yukon
Performance Specs

Perform feats of strength and capability when you choose either of the two 2021 GMC Yukon engines. Both engines are paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission to deliver versatile shifts in gear. The 5.3L V8 engine is standard across most of the Yukon lineup and outputs 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The available 6.2L V8 engine is a true powerhouse with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

All-new for the 2021 Yukon model year are the Active Response 4WD™ system and the four-corner air ride adaptive suspension. The Active Response 4WD system uses the electronic limited slip differential technology to transfer torque to the wheel with the best grip on the ground. This will ensure better maneuverability even during challenging driving situations. The four-corner air ride adaptive suspension takes your daily drive to cloud nine comfort levels with variable-rate air springs. So regardless of how heavily loaded your Yukon is, expect to experience a smooth drive with this suspension.
