upcomingIn our most recent efforts to research and review many of the new GMC  Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, we have been focused on the future of the 2019 GMC Sierra, since we started getting wind of its awesome offererings, that is.  “Having already debuted the range-topping versions of the 2019 GMC Sierra pickup, General Motors pulled the wraps off another new Sierra, one that might actually see some mud on its tires.”

There was an off road version of these new GMC trucks in Thunder Bay that hit the public ahead of the 2018 New York Auto Show.  It was delineated the AT4 and it consumes most of what we plan to share here today.  Similar to the Chevrolet Trail Boss Silverado revealed late last year, now GMC has its own version of such a new truck. “The AT4 treatment, GM says, will apply to most other GMC models in the coming two years.”  So, for the reason above, it is good to know your stuff now before the AT4 becomes readily available and prevalent on the new truck market.

In the lineup of GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, namely the Sierra for now, the AT4 gets some decent off-pavement cred to go with its factory two-inch lift. Standard equipment includes the following: 4WD, a locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho shocks, 18-inch wheels and Goodyear DuraTrac off-road tires that should make the AT4 much more capable in the backwoods than the base truck. Also standard is a two-speed transfer case, hill descent control and a traction select system.  In the new GMC Sierra Truck lineup for sale in Thunder Bay, the AT4 is essentially the kind of premium truck plenty of buyers want but can’t usually get off the showroom floor, leaving them to go aftermarket once they decide to add some heft with a lift, suspension and tires. No word, of course, on what the upgrade will cost, but we hope that the affordability obstacle is lifted to some extent.  Stay tuned for more as these new GMC Trucks hit the road.
