2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X Wants to Play in the Dirt

1

GMC has released a new off-road package for its Sierra half-ton. 

The Sierra All-Terrain X comes standard with a number of functional and style upgrades to help it head off-road and look good while doing it. The truck features four-wheel drive with a locking rear differential, beefier shocks in the back, a high-capacity air cleaner, hill descent control, an underbody transfer case shield and an inclinometer in the dash, all of which is standard with the All-Terrain package.

Adding the X means you get Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires meant for traversing dirt, gravel and mud, while a performance exhaust system provides a more aggressive note and an extra bit of power, bumping the 5.3-liter V8 up to 365 horsepower.

The rest of the package is all about looks and includes a unique grille with a body-color surround, tinted chrome accents, body-color bumpers, a bed-mounted sport bar, LED headlights, body-color door handles and black mirror cases, belt moldings and b-pillars.

To get an All Terrain X package, you must buy a Sierra 1500 4WD crew cab with a short box in SLT trim. Although it looks great in black, the truck can also be had in white, blue, iridium metallic, red and light steel gray.

The truck will go on sale in Spring of 2016. Pricing was not announced.
