GMC Plans To Spread AT4 Spec Across Its Lineup

Monday's announcement before the New York International Auto Show is a sign that GMC intends to compete with other off-road vehicles like the Ford Raptor and the Jeep.

The Sierra AT4 is basically GMC's version of the Chevrolet Silverado Trailboss, which means it features a two-inch suspension lift, plus a host of off-road goodies such as a two-speed transfer case, locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho shock absorbers, machined 18-inch dark-tinted wheels, all-terrain tires, and hill-descent control.

In fact, Automotive News reports that every model in GMC's lineup will get an AT4 version within the next two years. Special badges and trim inside and out further set it apart from more road-focused models. Available on the 2019 Sierra AT4 are the segment-first full-color heads-up display and rearview camera mirror. If you choose the optional 20-inch wheels you can't get mud tires, however. The 5.3-liter V8 engine connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission will be available with the diesel 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder.

To give it a sophisticated look, the designers have added black chrome on the fog lamp bezels, fender surround and grille insert, and they also matched the grille surround, door handles and front fascia to the body color. GMC outfitted the Sierra AT4 with a 2-inch lift, much like Chevy did with the 2019 Silverado Z71.

The interior of the AT4 adds a luxurious finish to the tough-as-nails exterior design.

The MultiPro Tailgate features six unique functions and positions, offering enhanced second-tier loading and load-stop solutions, a standing workstation mode and easier access to items in the box. The truck gets a bunch of cool new features, a new diesel engine option and a carbon fiber composite. The CarbonPro box was designed specifically with three molded in wheel indents in the front bulkhead of the box to locate and secure the front tires.

With a strong foundation of manufacturing trucks since 1902 and now selling in a dozen countries across the world, GMC offers purpose-built vehicles designed and engineered to the highest standard.
