  • Offers the most trailering tech in its class2 and first-class luxury features

DETROIT – GMC first elevated key off-road truck segments with the premium and capable Sierra 1500 AT4X and Canyon AT4X. Today, GMC announced the next step with the first-ever 2024 GMC Sierra HD AT4X — featuring the Sierra HD AT4X AEV Edition — a truck that enables adventurers to go further while still having the towing capability essential for heavy duty haulers.

The Sierra HD AT4X bolsters GMC’s lineup of premium off-road trucks, balancing increased off-road capability, smooth on-road handling, offering the most trailering technology in its class2 and first-class luxury and comfort features.

“GMC’s AT4X trim, which will be available across the entire GMC truck lineup, offers customers more premium choices when it comes to ‘do-it-all’ capabilities,” said Duncan Aldred, global vice president, Buick-GMC. “Each model delivers unique strengths, with the all-new Sierra HD AT4X taking it to the max, giving our customers the most luxurious and most off-road capable HD we've ever offered. AT4X means you can conquer almost any terrain, in complete comfort and with the towing power to bring your recreational toys, gear or camper along for the adventure."

AT4X: Premium off-roading the GMC way

Building on the foundation of the revamped 2024 Sierra HD, which receives fresh design updates, new available premium interiors and an all-new tech-focused layout, the new Sierra HD AT4X’s highlights include:

  • Available 18,500-pound max trailering capacity1
  • Factory-installed 1.5-inch (38mm) suspension lift
  • Multimatic DSSV dampers
  • Rear e-locking differential
  • 35-inch Goodyear Territory tires
  • Specific front upper and lower control arms and specific steering knuckles
  • Larger steel transfer case skid plate and front aluminum skid plate
  • Unique Obsidian Rush interior featuring premium appointments like massaging, full-grain leather-wrapped front seats

The Sierra HD AT4X also includes a new Off-Road Mode. When engaged, the Off-Road Mode adjusts various vehicle calibrations, such as the anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control, to provide optimized performance when venturing off-road. Additionally, Off-Road Mode alters throttle progression and transmission shifts to allow for better off-road control and performance.

Extreme AEV Edition

The available AT4X AEV Edition adds robust stamped steel bumpers with integrated recovery points and front winch capability which provide additional driver confidence and protection. It also features heavy duty steel skid plates that help keep vital components such as the steering gear and transfer case protected on the trail. Additional features include unique 18-inch Salta wheels and unique exterior badging and interior cues.

“The Sierra HD is an ideal foundation when it comes to on-road performance, off-road capability and insane pulling power,” said AEV CEO and founder Dave Harriton. “As with the Sierra 1500 before it, we took AEV’s signature performance-driven approach and dedication to detail to elevate the aspects that off-road customers want and demand in their heavy-duty truck. The result is an awesome truck with capability and confidence in all the right spots.”

Heavy Duty capability: Turbocharged pulling power

In addition to the standard 6.6L gas engine, the new AT4X offers the turbocharged pulling power of the available 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel. Enhanced for 2024, it will deliver 470 horsepower and 975 lb-ft of torque, offering more power across the entire operating speed range.

Both engines are paired with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission, which is designed to optimize engine power, torque and efficiency.

Confidence-inspiring trailering tech

Along with the rest of the 2024 Sierra HD lineup, the new AT4X offers the most trailering assistance technologies in the heavy-duty class2 as well as the available ProGrade Trailering System.

It includes a suite of available intelligent assistance technologies designed to help streamline the hitching and towing process, with integrated tools that can help enhance customers’ safety and confidence, including available enhanced, industry-first Transparent Trailer Viewfor Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Trailering, available Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert5 and new, available Adaptive Cruise Control5 with Trailering.

Additionally, there are up to 14 available camera views6 including Hitch View, Bed View with Zoom and Bed Hitch Guidance, and Rear Side View with Trailer Length Indicator.

First-class interior luxury and comfort

The first-ever Sierra HD AT4X offers the luxurious appointments and comfort in a premium, off-road-capable HD pickup, with the exclusive Obsidian Rush interior that features power massaging front seats and full-grain leather-wrapped seats throughout as well as authentic Vanta Ash wood décor and 12-speaker Bose® Premium Series audio system with Centerpoint surround technology. The AEV Edition also features the AEV logo on the front-seat head restraints and unique AEV-branded floor liners.

The centerpiece of the new cabin is an all-new, tablet-style 13.4-inch-diagonal infotainment3 touchscreen. It is complemented by a 12.3-inch-diagonal configurable driver information center and a 15-inch-diagonal head-up display. Together, they provide customers incredible levels of personalization and intuitive engagement.

Coming in Q3 2023

The 2024 GMC Sierra HD AT4X and AT4X AEV Edition are expected to arrive at dealerships in the fall of 2023. Pricing will be announced closer to the start of production.
