GMC debuted the diesel version of its flagship SUV Yukon back in January. The diesel engine is one of the three engine choices for the new GMC Yukon. GMC first sent the gasoline engine to the market but diesel lovers must wait till November to get their Yukon with a torquey powertrain.
The 2021 GMC Yukon diesel uses a 3.0-liter inline-6 Duramax turbodiesel engine with 277 hp and 624 nm of torque. The engine is the same as what we have seen on the Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban. In comparison, the gasoline engine is a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp and 620 nm of torque. All engines for the 2021 Yukon are connected to the 10-speed automatic transmission which is known as the Hydra-Matic.
The 2021 GMC Yukon is equipped with LED headlights, a rearview camera, a 360-degree camera, an automatic emergency braking system, and rear pedestrian alert.
Other features are magnetic ride control, electronic limited-slip differential, multi-link independent rear suspension.
