2001 GMC Yukon 4.7 12
$ 1,816-10,596
May 1, 2001
Vehicle Overview
GMC’s full-size SUV was redesigned last year, but the luxury Denali model was a carryover from the previous generation. This year, the Denali gets up to date and becomes part of the current generation.

Yukon is built from the same design as the Chevrolet Tahoe, and both are based on General Motors’ full-size pickups. GMC sells a larger version of this SUV as the Yukon XL, and Chevy does the same with the Suburban. Yukon and Tahoe compete with the Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, Toyota Land Cruiser and other big SUVs.

Standard features on the Denali include a monochrome exterior color scheme, front and rear air conditioning, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, two-tone leather upholstery, GM’s OnStar communication system and a heavy-duty towing package.

The Yukon’s main styling difference from the Chevy Tahoe is its grille and prominent GMC badge. Like the Tahoe, the Yukon is a four-door wagon that is 199 inches long, falling between the midsize Jimmy and the king-size Yukon XL.

Passenger accommodations range from seats for five to as many as nine. In front, buyers have a choice of two buckets or a three-place bench (depending on the model). All models have a three-place middle bench. A three-place rear bench seat is standard or optional on all models.

The middle and rear seats fold for additional cargo room or can be removed. The removable seats have built-in wheels. Cargo volume is 105 cubic feet with the middle and rear seats removed.

Under the Hood
A 4.8-liter V-8 with 275 horsepower is the Yukon’s base engine, and a 5.3-liter V-8 with 285 hp is optional. The Denali comes with a 320-hp 6.0-liter V-8. The Yukon is available with either two-wheel drive or an automatically engaging four-wheel-drive system called Autotrac. The Denali has permanently engaged all-wheel drive, plus computer-controlled shock absorbers that change stiffness based on driving conditions.

All models have a four-speed automatic transmission, standard antilock brakes and side-impact airbags for the front seats.
