To build the most expensive 2021 GMC Yukon Denali one possibly can, they would have to first opt for the Yukon XL body style. From there, it’s pretty linear. Check a bunch of boxes, and the next thing you know, you’ve got a $90,000+ SUV.
The exterior is full of premium paint choices, but the most expensive is the White Frost Tricoat – a $1,095 option. Interior colors are all no-cost options.
We previously reported that the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali will offer three exclusive packages. The Denali Deluxe Package, Denali Premium Package, and Denali Ultimate Package. However, it appears that only the Denali Premium Package will be offered out of the gate for $6,500, already discounted from $7,000. Be sure to check that box if you want features like power assist steps and premium lighting. A $535 Illumination package adds to that, with a lit-up GMC badge on the grille and puddle lamps (pictured below). A $1,795 Premium Capability Package unlocks the adaptive air ride suspension and an electronic limited slip differential.
There are seven optional 22-inch wheels. All of them asking a cool $2,995. All of the other expensive mechanical and exterior options are otherwise bundled together in the packages we selected before.
The interior is where you can really pile it on. A $1,995 rear seat media system, check. $350 power sliding center console, check. $295 all weather floor liners for all three rows, check, check, check. And don’t forget about that $195 front window shade.
Then there’s the Accessories section. You can literally check all of them. Want to buy both black and chromed mirror caps? You can do that, as it’s something you’ll have to explain to the dealer who is obligated to install them, instead of General Motors on the Arlington Assembly line. Whatever you do, though, don’t forget that $1,499 Horizon rooftop tent.
Over time, we’re sure the new Yukon Denali family will only introduce more premium and more expensive options. But, why wait? Configure the one you want now.
