The light-duty GMC Sierra entered the new chapter for the 2019 model year. The Sierra 1500 is the all-new model. It brings new styling, roomier cabins, new electronics and also some innovations. The new truck is also larger in all direction but also lighter and offers three engine options with the 10-speed automatic transmission. GMC said that new Sierra will initially go on sale in two top-tier trims. However, Sierra fans who like to drive their trucks behind the pavement will also have the version with the special purpose.
What was expected as the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 All Terrain is the off-road equipped version and equivalent of the Silverado Trail Boos. However, GMC actually established the new sub-brand the AT4 what means All Terrain 4-wheel drive. GMC promises AT4-badged version of each vehicle in its lineup in the future. In the case of the Sierra AT4, it means additional off-road capability combined with refined styling.
