In a statement, McKenzie spoke of his joy at remaining in New Zealand, and with the Chiefs.
"It's a really exciting opportunity to have signed on for three more years," he said.
"My time in the Chiefs jersey has been awesome to date and the support I've been given during my time in Chiefs country has been amazing.
"I've had an awesome opportunity to be able to sign on with New Zealand Rugby and hopefully keep achieving higher honours in the future."
Chiefs coach Colin Cooper welcomed McKenzie's signing, praising the youngster in a statement.
