Although you’ve already come to expect a comfortable, spacious interior in the Yukon, it’s been improved even more for 2021. Depending on the trim level you choose, you’ll have various seating colour and style finishes, as well as options of up to seating for 8.

A highlighted feature of the latest model Yukon is its power-sliding center console, which allows the driver to slide the console over a 10” track to optimize first-row cargo space for bulkier items. To maximize cargo space even more, the Yukon is equipped with second-row fold-flat seating and available third-row power fold-flat seating. So, no matter what you need to bring along with you on the road, you can be sure you’ll have room for it all.

The Yukon also features an available dual-panel panoramic sunroof that includes a tilt-sliding power sunshade. Enjoying the sights of the open road have never been easier to do.

To maximize driver and passenger comfort, the Yukon is available with features like heated and ventilated first and second-row seating and a tri-zone automatic climate control.
