Ford may have created an even bigger monster than they originally thought when they came out with the Raptor. Sure, the Raptor is a beast in itself, but Ford lit a fire under other truck maker’s butts to produce performance pickups. The latest entrant to this new trend is GMC’s Sierra All Terrain X.
The All Terrain X is a beefed up, more intimidating version of the 2016 GMC Sierra. GMC knows their customers well and created their performance pickup with those buyers in mind.
“Styling is the biggest influence on Sierra customers and the new Sierra All Terrain X builds on that with a more aggressive, personalized appearance that complements its exceptional capability,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of sales and marketing at GMC, said in a statement.
The All Terrain X looks great and it comes with some impressive features. Here are the highlights:
- Z71 Off-Road suspension package with Rancho monotube shocks.
- Eaton locking rear differential.
- 365 hp 5.3-liter V8 engine with a performance exhaust.
- 18-inch black aluminum wheels.
- 265/65R18SL Mud-Terrain-rated Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires.
- 4-Wheel Drive.
While the Sierra All Terrain X is impressive, it’s not quite on the level of the Ford Raptor. Instead, it’s more similar to Nissan’s Titan Warrior Concept or Ram’s 1500 Rebel. Still, there’s no denying that the All Terrain X should be a pretty gnarly truck.
