The Most Expensive It Can Be Is Over $90,000

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.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
