GMC has yet to find the market limit regarding how much people are willing to pay when it comes to full-size Denali products. In an effort to keep reaching for the ceiling, GMC introduced the Denali Ultimate package on the last-generation Sierra 1500 and Yukon Denali models. Yet the brand seemed to have found an even greater appetite for a loaded-to-the-brim full-size American SUV. Go figure, more millionaires drive pickup trucks than anything else these days, so the market is primed for big GMC products to thrive in. Today, MC&T is reporting on the latest high-end package from Big Red: The 2021 GMC Yukon Denali Deluxe Package. It will be one of three upgrade packages for the Yukon Denali, below the Denali Premium Package (PDK) and the range-topping Denali Ultimate Package (PEC). It will cost $5,750.

Found in the official order guide, the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali Deluxe Package (RPO code “PCL”) consists of the following:

(CWN) Advanced Technology Package
(UW9) Rear Seat Media System
(RPU) 22-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with premium paint and (SFE) wheel locks.

All of the above options are available a la carte, but when bundled together, customers can save $75 (!) with the Denali Deluxe Package. What a screamin’ deal. The package is not available with the Denali Premium Package, Denali Ultimate Package, Air Ride Adaptive Suspension, or Power-Sliding Center Console. However, the 22-inch wheels can be subbed out for any accessory wheel.

The 2021 GMC Yukon is built in Arlington, Texas, where General Motors is fixing to ramp up production after a two-month setback from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021 Yukon will start at $51,995 in short wheelbase spec, while the extended 2021 GMC Yukon XL begins at $54,695 including the $1,295 destination charge. Should you want to step up to a 4×4 model in base SLE spec, those prices jump to $54,995 for the Yukon and $57,695 for the XL respectively. The 2021 model year carries only a $100 premium over the outgoing model in base spec, though the XL see a slightly higher $1,000 price hike.

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.
