GMC Yukon SLE
The base trim for the 2021 GMC Yukon is the SLE, which comes with a 5.3-liter V-8 engine that’s paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The SLE rolls down the road on 18-inch wheels and features bright roof-mounted side rails, a black assist step, and deep-tinted glass. You get seating for eight with two bench seats in the back and keyless entry and ignition. Enjoy the 10.2-inch touch screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. Forward collision mitigation is a standard driver assistance feature on the SLE.
You can further customize your SLE by adding either the GMC Pro Safety Plus Package or the Max Trailering Package. Also available is nine-passenger seating with three bench seats and tire pressure monitoring sensors for your trailer. The SLE is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive.
GMC Yukon SLT
The SLT is Yukon’s mid-level model, adding the GMC Pro Safety Package as standard along with 20-inch wheels. You also get a hands-free liftgate, heated and ventilated front seats, and leather upholstery. The SLT upgrades to a nine-speaker Bose audio system and wireless charging pad.
