2021 GMC Yukon Diesel Will Be On Sale Before End Of The Year

Diesel engine improves fuel consumption while offering the same torque as the most powerful V8

  • The new GMC Yukon will over three engines including a diesel powertrain

  • The 2021 Yukon features a brand-new interior and a fully redesigned exterior


The 2021 GMC Yukon launched back in July with a brand-new design inside and out, new technology, and new versions. It also debuted with a diesel engine as part of a three engine powertrain lineup.

While the 2021 Yukon is currently offered with either a 5.3-litre or a 6.2-litre V8 developing 355 and 420 horsepower respectively. Although these engines essentially carry over from the previous Yukon with some improvements, the major change under the new Yukon’s hood is the 3.0-litre Duramax diesel engine.

It delivers 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and according to GM Authority it will be available this November.

The appeal of the Duramax diesel is clear. It delivers the same torque as the most powerful V8 in the Yukon lineup, but it is also a lot more efficient. It’s paired with a 10-speed automatic.

It comes in standard wheelbase and XL long wheelbase versions.

The GMC Yukon starts at just over $66,000 in Canada. In the US, the 2021 Yukon starts at $57,800.
