GMC has announced that they will be stepping into the special edition truck market with the all-new 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X. This truck is a special edition version of the already out All Terrain model that features exclusive premium content that enhances off-road capability.
With the All Terrain X, GMC is hoping that its attitude reflects the popular personalization trend among off-roaders. The trucks package includes interior and exterior changes to make this a limited-edition model.
The All Terrain package includes four-wheel drive with an Eaton locking rear differential, Rancho monotube shocks, high-capacity air cleaner, Hill Descent Control and underbody transfer case shield. It also comes with rear park assist, a unique grille, spray-on bedliner, and even the All Terrain logo in the instrument center.
With a truck that is already loaded with features the new All Terrain X will offer even more. The X package includes:
- 265/65R18SL Mud-Terrain-rated Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires, designed for off-road competence in dirt, gravel and mud, with on-road composure in dry, wet and wintry conditions
- 18 x 8.5-inch black aluminum wheels
- Sport side steps (black)
- Bed-mounted sport bar (black) designed to support the accessory off-road LED lighting package
- High-performance LED headlamps
- Performance exhaust system, which bumps output of the 5.3L V-8 engine to 365 horsepower and adds an aggressive note
- Body-color door handles and body-side moldings
- Black exterior mirrors, belt moldings and B-pillars
- Interior floor liners
- Available colors: Onyx Black, Summit White, Stone Blue Metallic, Iridium Metallic, Crimson Red Tintcoat, Light Steel Gray Metallic
“Styling is the biggest influence on Sierra customers and the new Sierra All Terrain X builds on that with a more aggressive, personalized appearance that complements its exceptional capability,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “It joins other models such as the new Sierra Elevation and premium Sierra Denali to offers more choices for finding the premium truck that matches customers’ style and capability needs.”
The truck will go on sale in the Spring of 2016. One thing that GMC has not released yet was the cost of the package. It is great to see that more and more manufactures are creating off-road minded trucks. Do you think this one fits the off-road mold? Tell us in the comments below!
