GMC has introduced a new Sierra model, designed to be a premium off-road pickup truck to compete with the likes of the Dodge Ram and the Ford F-150. The all-new 2019 Sierra AT4 was unveiled tonight just before the upcoming New York International Auto Show.

The Sierra AT4 actually rides two inches taller than the standard 2019 Sierra. It features an all-wheel drive, off-road-tuned Rancho monotube shock absorbers, 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires or mud terrain-rated Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires, hill descent control, and DMC’s traction Select system. And that’s just scratching the surface.

When it comes to its rugged good looks, the 2019 Sierra AT4 features a darker appearance than the rest of the Sierra models. Unique to this model are its body color, grill surround, and bumpers. GMC has darkened its trim and has created dark-tinted and textured aluminum finishes that extends to its inner grille and front fog-lights.

“The 2019 Sierra AT4 is designed for the customer who wants an elevated presence on the road and the capability to venture off life’s beaten path…. It’s also the beginning for the AT4 brand, which will be seen on every vehicle in our lineup in the next two years.” – Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC.

But it’s really the Sierra AT4’s box that has us the most impressed. The CarbonPro box is the industry’s first to be made of carbon fiber. That makes it 62-pounds lighter than the steel version. The CarbonPro box offers best-in-class dent, scratch, and corrosion resistance, which GMC says makes it the most durable pickup box in the segment.

The pickup can be configured with a segment-first multi-color head-up display, a segment-first rear camera mirror, surround vision, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, front pedestrian braking and low-speed forward automatic braking, and a 6.2L V-8 or Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2019 GMC Sierra AT4 goes on sale in the fall.
