GMC has long been the purveyor of strong design and application when it comes to pickup-trucks. And now, more than ever, it looks like there’s been an active pursuit of building the best trucks by GMC. What’s more, is that now they want to improve upon their own inventions. Keep creating bigger and better vehicles faster and quicker. It would all make a great difference for car buyers as they go from dealership to dealership to see what would be the best Sierra to purchase after all. And with that in mind, let’s dive deep into what exactly makes the 2024 GMC Sierra 2500HD AT4X shine.
GMC Soupes-Up The Sierra To New Heights!
Debuting alongside, the Extreme AEV Edition, this GMC Sierra co-presents itself as one of two off-road-centric models appearing in the heavy-duty lineup.
More indications of it’s full power is how the new Sierra can tow around 18,500 pounds while hauling up their payloads of 3,300 pounds.
More features include how the pickup has 18-inch black wheels wrapped in 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory M/T tires. Of course, the suspensions itself is also risen upward by about 1.5 inches. All while the truck has consistently been buoyed by the Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers. In addition, there are front suspension features that use enhanced steering knuckles that can help with upper and lower control arms. At the bottom of the truck, there’s better use that can be made with front bash plates and huge steel skid plates for the transfer case.
GMC has packed the Sierra with all sorts of fun features. Like a four-wheel drive, 10-speed automatic transmission and even two separate powertrains, like the 401-horsepower, gas-fed 6.6-liter V-8 engine, capable of creating 470 horses through 975 pound-feet of torque.
Differences Between The AT4X and The Extreme AEV Edition
Each have 25.7 degree departure angle as well as a lift off the ground of 11.6—11.7 inches. Though, the AEV uses an angle of 22.6 degrees while the AT4X uses around 31.6 to 29.8 degrees. The add-ons complicate it more, due to differentiations of weight, by ten pounds or so.
The Sierra HD has a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster with an operational HUD and a 13.4-inch center touchscreen.
As far as the price-range goes, GMC is looking at about $90K for the base price while an $8,000 surcharge is enacted for the AEV-model. If that’s not impressive, I don’t know what is.
