The new generation of the well-known full-size SUV is on the way. Among the many novelties that are about to come, there is one that probably draws more attention than others. That would be a new nameplate in the trim level organization, a plate that is going to be available in all GMC models. Of course, we are talking about the AT4 trim, which is reserved for off-road upgrades. When it comes to the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4, we will see plenty of them. Most of the details are already known and we are eagerly waiting to see this version on the market.
Compared to the rest of the lineup, this version will be distinctive in several ways. Of course, we will see a variety of off-road upgrades, but this version will also feature several distinctive styling details, both outside and on the inside. On the other side, the engine lineup will remain the same as for the rest of the lineup. When it comes to the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 availability, we expect to see it in the second half of the year.
2021 GMC Yukon AT4 Design
Before we start with exclusive features of the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4, we would like to say a couple of general design characteristics. This model will be a part of the all-new generation, which is coming this summer. This redesign brings a lot of interesting changes and upgrades. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the platform. Of course, we are talking about the new T1 architecture, which saves hundreds of pounds. On the other side, the new model is bigger and features longer wheelbase, which brings significant improvements in terms of legroom and particularly in terms of the cargo volume. Naturally, there is a new styling, new interior design and loads of new features in the offer.
2021 GMC Yukon AT4 Features
When it comes to this particular version, you may count on a plethora of interesting exclusive features. The first thing to mention is a new suspension setup, as well as the fact that this model comes with a two-speed transfer case, skid plates and several more off-road upgrades. Optionally, you can also upgrade suspension with the new Air Ride Adaptive Suspension. This feature does not only allows to adjust ground clearance with ease, but also reads real-time conditions and adapts dampers and other components in accordance with the current situation. This version is also available with a variety of camera-based systems, which allow perfect vision from different angles, which is very useful during off-road rides.
Styling and Interior Design
Of course, this version also stands out in terms of styling. First of all, there is a black chrome grille, while several more parts of the SUV have been blacked as well. Furthermore, this version features slightly reshaped bumpers, which allow higher approach and departure angles. Of course, you may count on all-terrain tires and unique wheels, which both have a big impact on the overall appearance. When it comes to the color options, we presume that the new model will be offered in a couple of exclusive variants, though we are still waiting to hear details from the company.
The 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 interior will also come with a couple of exclusive features. Of course, you may count on exclusive color schemes, as well as on exclusive leather upholstery, with “AT4” stitching on headrests. Furthermore, this model also comes with exclusive floor mats and a couple of more details that clearly show us that we are riding in this off-road version. Of course, a couple of exclusive tech goodies are expected as well, though we are still waiting for the details.
2021 GMC Yukon AT4 Engines
Under the hood, this version won’t be much different compared to the rest of the lineup. Still, an important thing to mention is that the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 diesel won’t be in the offer. This model will come with gasoline engines only. Base versions will feature a 5.3-liter V8, which puts out around 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. You can also get a bigger and more powerful 6.2-liter unit, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come in pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to all wheels. As we already mentioned, a two-speed transfer case is also included.
2021 GMC Yukon AT4 Release Date and Price
The exact 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 release date is yet to be announced. Still, we have no doubt that this model will come along with the rest of the lineup. That will happen sometime in the second half of the year, though we are still waiting for the details. When it comes to the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 price, it should go around 66.000 dollars.
