GMC introduces 2019 GMC Sierra AT4 on Monday at the New York auto show. An off-road read version of the popular pickup truck which Vice President of Global GMC Duncan Aldred says will be affixed to every vehicle in the GMC portfolio lineup in the next two years.
The 2019 Sierra AT4 comes with darker exterior elements of the redesigned pickup along with some off-road features. GMC adds a 2-inch factory-installed suspension lift, locking rear differential and skid plates, and standard four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case. The buffed truck gets additional features including exclusive-design dark-tinted either 18- or 20-inch wheels and Hill Descent Control. There is also the Traction Select System that enables drivers to get different terrain profiles and weather conditions.
With the Sierra AT4, GMC is offering a choice of three engines. 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. The truck boasts higher performance at 6.2-liter V8 with the support of a 10-speed automatic transmission.
At its exterior, GMS has given a high-gloss black finish on the window trim, skidplate, and mirror caps. Inside, the interior is decorated with dark-tinted black accenting and textured aluminum.
“It’s designed for customers who want a bold presence on the road and the capability to venture off life’s beaten path – capitalizing on GMC’s unique combination of bold design and precise craftsmanship, the AT4 moves GMC into the currently un-conquered space of premium, off-road capable vehicles,” Aldred said.
The first 2019 Sierra AT4s is expected to go on sale in 2018. While GMC has not revealed the pricing, it positively said that this new version will keep their status as the premier GMC vehicles.
