The GMC Sierra family of trucks is widely known in the industry for dependability and quality, but the brand recently unveiled a new variant of the Sierra that’s been modified for off-roading capability titled the Sierra All Terrain X. Still in the fullsize pickup segment, the GMC Sierra All Terrain X carries all the capabilities of the standard Sierra, while also adding new equipment and features to give the All Terrain X an added adventurous edge.
Using the Z71 off-roading suspension as a base, the Sierra All Terrain X also adds Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac all-terrain tires, underbody protection, a performance exhaust, side steps, hill descent control, and a number of black and body-color accents. The Sierra variant was first announced near the end of January, but made an appearance at the recent auto show in Chicago. While pricing has yet to be announced, GMC representatives have stated that the price could fall somewhere in the ballpark of $50,000.
The GMC Sierra All Terrain X will launch this spring. As the date draws closer, specifics regarding the pickup’s pricing will likely be announced. As for the moment, The Chicago Show has given enthusiasts a detailed look at the All Terrain X from the inside out.
The next-generation GMC Acadia has been a hot topic recently, with the new SUV showing up at several auto shows and attracting attention thanks to its entirely redesigned appearance. With a dramatic weight loss and an overall look that gives the Acadia a more “crossover” feel as opposed to its past as a rugged SUV, the vehicle has undergone some drastic changes to appeal to an increasingly competitive segment. Now, the GMC Acadia price has been announced — and with a sticker price up to $3,000 less than the previous generation, the new Acadia is competitively-priced, too.
The entry-level SL trim of the new 2017 Acadia will be $1,905 less expensive than the old iteration, with a price tag of $29,995. As you go up through the trim levels, however, you eventually reach the range-topping, $47,845 Acadia Denali equipped with all-wheel drive, which received a $2,970 price cut from the previous model. GMC says that despite the price cut, the new 2017 Acadia will come with more standard equipment and more efficient engines, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, just to name a few features that now come standard on the new Acadia.
The Acadia is due for release sometime in spring 2016. With the GMC Acadia price getting such a hefty cut, especially with the vehicle entering a new generation and equipped with so many new standard features, GM representatives are confident the crossover will become a leader in its segment.
