GMC has launched a limited-edition off-road version of the Sierra pickup truck called the Sierra All Terrain X. Forget what the competition is offering: this is what off-roading is all about.
The 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X features aggressive off-road styling and capability, with design cues taken from past pickup trucks, including a sloping back connecting the roof line with the edge of the truck bed.
It comes equipped with 18- by 8.5-inch black aluminum wheels as well as black mirrors, moldings, and pillars to enhance its aggressive looks. Meanwhile, a set of Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires grant superior traction in gravel, dirt, and mud, and the famed Z71 off-road suspension package with hill-descent technology make it nigh-impossible to lose control on a hill.
“Styling is the biggest influence on Sierra customers and the new Sierra All Terrain X builds on that with a more aggressive, personalized appearance that complements its exceptional capability,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC sales and marketing.
The 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X will be hit our showrooms at Wiesner of Huntsville this spring.
A few months back, the 2015 Corvette Z06 was revealed as the bowtie’s most track-capable Corvette ever. Much of that power comes from the muscle car’s all-new LT4 engine, a 6.2L V8, which easily eclipses the numbers of its predecessor, the LS7. The LT4, in fact, churns out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, incredible numbers for a production vehicle. It’s the most powerful engine ever put on the roads by Chevrolet.
“The LT4 Small Block sets a new benchmark for power and torque at GM,” said Steve Kiefer, vice president, GM Powertrain Engineering. “The engine also puts the new Corvette Z06 on par with the most powerful supercars offered in America, while delivering performance with impeccable manners that make it suitable for daily driving.”
The LT4 accomplishes all that with a remarkable sense of efficiency as well; it’s barely any larger than the Corvette Stingray’s LT1 engine, despite its much higher capability. The 650-Horsepower Z06, therefore, features one of the smallest and lightest engines in the exclusive supercar segment. Come by Wiesner of Huntsville to see the Z06 and the rest of the Corvette lineup today!
Everyone knows there are only a few big players in the pickup truck industry, and with numerous years worth of awards behind its belt, it’s undeniable that General Motors (GM) is the one and only, ultimate reigning, official King of Trucks.
Of course, we wouldn’t say this without showing a little more proof behind the name. Recently, GM has earned the crown for most horsepower in a mainstream pickup truck with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, making them the maker of the most powerful light-duty truck engines. This monster engine is available in both the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra, both notable big-time players in the pickup industry. The engine pushes out an incredible 420 horsepower with 460 lb-ft. of torque, running right past big competitors like the Dodge Ram and Ford F-150.
If you’re in the market for one of these heavy-duty trucks, expect to go with trims including the LTZ or Denali, but rest assured that your towing capabilities will be out of this world. Get your hands on a bad boy with this engine, and you’ll be riding high with 12,000 pounds of towing capability behind you. Unbeatable.
