For customers seeking enhanced off-road attitude and bold looks to match, the new GMC Sierra 1500 All Terrain X is designed to be a premium-grade full-size pickup that’s perfectly at home either on the open road or off the beaten path.

The All Terrain X builds off the unique look and feel of the All Terrain package, which is available on Sierra 1500 SLT double- and
crew-cab pickup trucks. All Terrain X models incorporate unique exterior touches, including a tubular black bed-mounted sport bar, which provides a convenient mounting point for LED off-road lights, which are available as a dealer-mounted accessory. New black sport steps further provide a rugged appearance while simultaneously improving cab entry and egress.

Black beltline moldings and black B-pillar appliques are also unique to the Sierra 1500 All Terrain X, and complement the distinctive black chrome grille insert. High-performance LED headlamps, which include GMC’s signature LED daytime running lamps, are also standard on the Sierra 1500 All Terrain X.

Body-colored door handles and body side moldings – along with matching bumpers and grille surround -- lends the Sierra 1500 All Terrain X a clean, bold monochromatic appearance in your choice of Stone Blue, Deep Mahogany Metallic, Summit White, Onyx Black, Dark Slate Metallic, or Red Quartz Tintcoat exterior colors.

In true GMC fashion, the Sierra 1500 All Terrain X provides plenty of capability. A powerful 5.3-liter V-8 engine is standard, and paired with a new stainless steel performance exhaust system, which delivers both a bold exhaust note and increased performance. In fact, with 33 percent less backpressure than the stock exhaust, All Terrain X’s performance exhaust provides a 10-horsepower gain over the base 5.3-liter V8, bringing peak power ratings to 365 hp at 5600 rpm and 383 lb-ft of torque at 4100 rpm.

The Z71 Off-Road Suspension package is also standard on All Terrain X, and includes off-road tuned monotube Rancho dampers, an underbody transfer case shield, and an advanced hill descent control system, which leverages the anti-lock brake system to provide a smooth, controlled descent down steep grades. Additionally, the Sierra 1500 All Terrain X’s unique black-painted 18-inch wheels are wrapped in rugged Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Mud-Terrain 265/65R18SL tires.

Four-wheel drive is standard, as is an Eaton automatic locking rear differential. In situations with low traction, this differential automatically channels power to the wheel with the most traction in order to keep the Sierra All Terrain X moving forward.
