2021 GMC Yukon Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.2

 The 2021 GMC Yukon is completely redesigned, and it has a great interior. The cabin looks handsome, and there are plenty of premium materials. The Denali trim especially stands out for its interior quality, and you could easily confuse it for a luxury SUV.

All three rows of seats are spacious, and few vehicles in any class can match the Yukon's impressive cargo capacity. Plenty of tech features come standard, including a user-friendly infotainment system.

  • "The dash design is more squared-off and truck-like, but it's offset by the use of some excellent materials. Large portions of the dash are wrapped in leather with stitching. There's also a large panel of matte-finish open-pore wood, available in multiple colors, on the passenger side. Some metal trim and nicely textured knobs adorn the center stack. The doors get this wood and leather, too. The center console features some attractive, stylized stitching as an extra adornment. The result is a place that feels high-quality and luxurious, but not in a garish or flashy way. Sort of a utilitarian luxury, which fits the look and character of the Yukon Denali." -- Autoblog
  • "A new interior helps the Yukon satisfy its upscale pretensions, and Denalis go a step further with special leather, real wood trim, and a number of exclusive interior-color options." -- Car and Driver
  • "Justifying its premium pricing, this GMC's cabin is attractive and loaded with quality materials. Two kinds of leather are used, one with a fine grain and another that's much rougher looking. At first, I thought the coarse cow hide seemed a bit crude, like elephant skin or something, but I've grown to like it because it's used sparingly and provides a nice bit of contrast. Matching that leather, this Yukon's various switches and dials look nice and feel high in quality." -- CNET

Cargo

The standard Yukon provides 25.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seats. That expands to 72.6 cubic feet with the third-row seats folded down and 122.9 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down. These are impressive totals, even for a large SUV.

Yukon XL models have even more space: 41.5 cubic feet behind the third row, 93.8 cubes with the third row folded, and 144.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded. Outside of minivans, you won't find any passenger vehicles with that kind of cargo space. A hands-free power liftgate and power-folding third-row seats are available.

In addition to the abundance of space, the all-new Yukon has a lower liftover height than in previous models. Some people will still think it's high – this is a huge vehicle, after all – but it's easier to load large items than it used to be. When you fold the seats down, they fold nearly flat.

  • "A new independent rear suspension allows for a flat load floor and impressive cargo space, especially in the extended-length Yukon XL, which, with all the seats folded, offers 144 cubic feet for whatever you need to haul." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The increase in length also benefits cargo space. Fold down the second- and third-row seats and you've got a pretty massive 122.9 cubic feet at your disposal. A lower load floor helps make loading big items easier than last year too." -- Edmunds
  • "The Yukon's switch to an independent rear suspension and six more inches of overall length translate to 10.1 inches of additional third-row legroom, 66 percent more cargo space behind the rear seat, and a vastly more usable cargo area. The load-in height is still tall, but whether the power-folding third row is raised or laid flat, there is noticeably more space for stuff, and the seats in the way-back are indeed more comfortable." -- Automobile Magazine

Seating

The Yukon seats seven to nine people across three rows, depending on whether you opt for a front bench or bucket seats, or second-row captain's chairs or a bench. Cloth upholstery and power-adjustable front seats come standard. Leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

As you'd expect in an enormous vehicle, the front seats are expansive and comfortable. The second-row seats tell a similar story. The third-row seats are the real surprise, however. The redesigned Yukon provides more legroom in the way back than earlier versions, and now adults can ride comfortably wherever they sit. The rearmost seats aren't as cushioned as the front rows, though.

For installing child safety seats, there are complete sets of LATCH connectors for each of the Yukon's second-row seats, as well as tether-only connectors for each of the third-row seats.

  • "The best part, however, is the amount of space. As we found in the 2021 Tahoe, there's loads of room for a full-grown adult in the first and second rows, and while the third isn't as spacious as the Ford Expedition's, an adult can find enough space to be comfortable on moderately long trips. The only downside is the actual seat comfort: The seats range from needing a bit more support and softness up front, to being Kansas-flat and very firm in the way back." -- Autoblog
  • "With their lower cushions roughly chair-height above the floor, the second-row buckets are backside friendly and plenty adjustable. But thanks to that independent rear suspension, even the third-row is downright coddling, something you could never say about the outgoing Yukon's rear-most bench, which was a no-grown-man's land. Adults relegated to steerage in the 2021 model will have little to complain about as there's plenty of support and loads of headroom and legroom." -- CNET
  • "Entering the third row is easy when the middle seats can be flipped forward and gets a bit trickier when child safety seats prevent the folding function. Speaking of child seats, we found plenty of room for their use in the middle row's captain's chairs. With both a rear-facing infant carrier and full-size forward-facing child seat in place, the front seat driver and passenger had more than enough room to stretch out. Far too often we find that installing these large safety seats requires the front seat occupants to scrunch up to the dashboard. Thankfully, this was not so in the Yukon." -- Truck Trend

Interior Features

Standard features in the Yukon include tri-zone automatic climate control, remote start, and an infotainment system with a 10.2-inch touch screen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, six speakers, satellite radio, HD Radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, six USB ports, and Bluetooth.

The Yukon's infotainment system is easy to master thanks to its intuitive menu layouts, and the large touch screen responds quickly to inputs. There are physical controls for some functions, and they're logically arranged.

Available features include a panoramic sunroof, a power-sliding center console, navigation, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, a rear-seat reminder, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, front and rear parking sensors, and Teen Driver, which lets you do things like set speed and audio volume limits for secondary drivers.

Available active safety features include a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, a rear camera mirror, rear pedestrian alert, and a surround-view parking camera system.

  • "GM infotainment systems have been killing it lately and this one is superb. It boots up almost instantly when you start the engine and it responds with immediacy. There's no lag or stutters while swiping through menus or zooming in or out on the map. Aside from outstanding performance, this multimedia array is clearly laid out and exceptionally easy to use." -- CNET
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed all of the 2021 Yukon's updated technology. The 10.2-inch color touch screen worked great, and we especially loved the inclusion of wireless Apple CarPlay. In our short time, the Yukon we had [had] zero issues with CarPlay connectivity, something that had been an issue for us in GM vehicles in the past. We're fans of a good head-up display, and the one fitted to the Yukon was top-notch, complete with loads of useful information to select from. We also really enjoyed the crisp and bright picture quality from the HD Surround Vision camera system." -- Truck Trend
  • "The infotainment system is responsive and easy to use, while also offering the same advanced trailering camera system that so impressed in the Chevy Silverado HD. The head-up display is also large and legible, and fortunately not cluttered with too much distracting information." -- Autoblog
