GMC introduces 2016 Sierra All Terrain X off-road truck

It\'s not quite a Ford Raptor, but the GMC Sierra All Terrain X looks serious.

General Motors' GMC truck division is getting even more trucky with an off-road version of its 2016 Sierra pickup.

Called the 2016 Sierra All Terrain X, the new model is a spin off from GMC's recently launched All Terrain line. As with GMC's other All Terrain Sierra models, the X comes standard with upgrades like four-wheel drive with locking rear differential, a Z71 off-road suspension, spray-on bed liner, integrated inclinometer and unique tinted chrome accents. The X package includes additional goodies like 18-inch wheels shod in off-road rubber, side steps, bed-mounted sport bar, LED headlights, performance exhaust and body-colored moldings.

The Sierra All Terrain X will be available in six different exterior colors — Onyx Black, Summit White, Stone Blue Metallic, Iridium Metallic, Crimson Red Tintcoat, Light Steel Gray Metallic. The truck is powered by GMC's 5.3L V8, but the sports exhaust boosts output to 365 horsepower.

"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,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. "It joins other models such as the new Sierra Elevation and premium Sierra Denali to offers more choices for finding the premium truck that matches customers' style and capability needs.”

The 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X will be available this spring. Pricing will be announced closer to the truck's market launch.
