What Does the AT4X Label Mean for GMC?

GMC continues to introduce cutting-edge innovations to its substantial corner of the automotive industry. Our manufacturing partner has introduced the new AT4X trim for 2022, debuting first with the Sierra 1500. Since news of this exciting new Sierra variant leaked out to the public, we have been seeing an uptick in people asking our team about the meaning behind the AT4X label for GMC. We’ll get into more details below, but the AT4X trim grade takes the enhanced off-road capability that is available on several GMC vehicles and adds some more refined features, which may have been previously found in Denali models. Let’s take a closer look.

How are GMC AT4X Models Equipped for Off-Road Driving?

As of right now, GMC has only applied its AT4X equipment to the 2022 Sierra 1500, but that could be changing in the near future. The AT4 trim grade did a great job of upgrading the Sierra’s off-road bona fides. By introducing the AT4X, the manufacturer is upping its game once again. GMC scoured the automotive industry to find the best components to make sure the AT4X performs as advertised in off-road environments. Some of the features that give the 2022 Sierra 1500 AT4X its incredible off-road performance include;

  • Standard 6.2-litre, V-8 engine
  • 10-Speed automatic transmission
  • Increased suspension travel versus AT4
  • Two-speed transfer case
  • Selectable driving modes
  • Front/Rear locking electronic locking differential

What Makes GMC AT4X Interiors Different?

If GMC does decide to add more models to its AT4X roster, we have a pretty good idea what kinds of interior features these vehicles could offer. GMC designers understood the assignment that a vehicle with incredible off-road capability would also benefit from having one of the most comfortable interiors available. Some of the creature comforts that are found in the 2022 Sierra 1500 AT4X include:

  • 16-Way power-adjustable front bucket seats with massage feature
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Driver memory functions
  • Heat outboard rear seats
  • Rear seat storage bins
  • Heated steering wheels
