Off-roading has never looked so good.
Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles both offer a host of off-roading machines, which include the F-150 SVT Raptor, Jeep Wrangler and Ram Rebel. However, General Motors doesn’t offer anything as aggressive as the aforementioned trucks, but that’s all about to change. GMC has just introduced the Sierra All Terrain X Special Edition and it looks like a worthy advisory to take on the Raptor. The pickup truck has off-road parts and a more aggressive look. But has GMC done enough to make it good enough to make you forget about the Hummer brand?
The monochromatic design features a bespoke front grille, tinted chrome accents, body-colored parts and body side molding. The side steps, B-pillars and side mirrors feature black accents. Available exterior colors for the Special Edition include Stone Blue Metallic, Light Steel Gray Metallic, Iridium Metallic Crimson Red Tintcoat, Onyx Black and Summit White. While the pickup truck looks amazing, it also has the parts to go off-roading. The All Terrain X Special comes with AWD as standard, an Eaton locking differential, high-capacity air cleaner, a Z71 Off-Road suspension package with Hill Descent Control, underbody transfer case shield and Rancho monotube shocks.
Enthusiasts that don’t want the All Terrain X Special can opt for the X packages on the GMC Sierra 1500 4WD crew cab and short box models. This adds a bed-mounted sport bar with an off-road LED lighting package, 18-inch black aluminum wheels, M/T Goodyear 265/65 tires, a performance exhaust, along with high-performance LED headlights. The All Terrain X Special will go on sale this spring, with pricing yet to be announced.
