2021 GMC Yukon
What do we have here? Fresh off the debut of the all-new Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, GMC has launched the more upscale Yukon and Yukon XL. Right away, we have to give GMC credit for making such a bold statement in a world where any SUV that’s going to succeed stands out. The new Yukon comes with a larger footprint, more third-row legroom, an updated engine lineup, and more upscale materials inside. Can it finally compete in the premium segment that it was meant for?
The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful
The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.
The 2019 Ram 2500 HD Just Got Some Serious Competition In the Form of the 2020 GMC Sierra HD
GMC is Slashing up to $4,500 off the GMC Sierra HD in October 2018
In the midst of heavy competition, GMC is offering a new cash incentive program to the tune of $4,500 on any new 2018 GMC Sierra HD. The nationwide incentive comes at a time when competition in the highly lucrative quarter-ton and one-ton heavy-duty pickup market is as high as it’s ever been. If dealing with its current rivals isn’t enough, the Sierra has also had to account for new entrants like the Nissan Titan XD that are making their presence known in the market. The $4,500 incentive applies to all 2018 GMC Sierra HD models, though those who are interested must abide by a number of conditions, including taking delivery of their pickup by October 31, 2018.
2019 GMC Sierra Denali
Just like its predecessor, the Sierra Denali sits at the top of the GMC Sierra lineup, itself a more upscale version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The fourth-generation pickup truck broke cover in March 2018, a few months after Chevrolet debuted the new-generation Silverado it is based on.
At the forefront of the premium pickup market since 1999, the GMC Sierra Denali steps into a new generation with redesigned everything. Larger and bolder, the truck benefits from new state-of-the-art technology, and a new transmission. It also boasts many industry-first features, including a carbon-fiber box, a multi-function tailgate, and a rear-view camera. Power continues to come from the familiar 5.3- and 6.2-liter V-8s, despite the fact that GMC just introduced a diesel V-6 option for the regular Sierra.
Comparison: Is the GMC Sierra AT4 a Solid Alternative to the Ford F-150 Raptor?
GMC just launched a new-generation GMC Sierra that redefines the luxury pickup truck segment through its imposing looks, premium interior, and segment-first carbon-fiber bed. But General Motors also used the new Sierra to introduce a new model line for GMC vehicles. It’s called the AT4 and adds extra features inside and out and a lift kit. With the Sierra more capable in off-road terrain in this setup, truck enthusiasts can’t help but wonder whether the AT4 is a good proposition for the mighty Ford F-150 Raptor. To answer this question, I’m going to have a closer look at both trucks in the comparison below.
GMC just recent debuted the GMC Sierra AT4, which is essentially a luxurious, go-almost-anywhere pickup truck. It’s not exactly a competitor for vehicles like the Ford F-150 Raptor or the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, but it’s the most capable truck to ever wear a GMC badge to date. As such, it’s worthy of a weekend on your desktop, so go ahead and download that wallpaper, if you’re a truck guy. If not, you can check out our wallpaper selections for the Volkswagen Touareg, Honda Civic Type R, or the Porsche Macan GTS!
GMC’s AT4 Treatment will Extend to the GMC Canyon, Acadia, Yukon and Others, Replacing the All-Terrain Trim Level
GMC is at the New York Auto Show to showcase its latest offering, the Sierra AT4. It’s understandable if you’re not familiar with the nameplate because it’s an entirely new off-road brand that the automaker is offering to appeal to potential customers who want sprinkles of premium goodness to go along with their off-road needs. The Sierra AT4 is the first GMC-branded truck to get the trim, but other GMC models like the Canyon, Yukon, and Acadia will get their own AT4 versions in the future.
2019 GMC Sierra AT4
The pickup truck war is hotter than it’s ever been in the U.S. right now. While Ford has an all-aluminum F-150, GM just launched a brand-new GMC Sierra with an industry-first carbon-fiber bed. Ram is also going strong with a fresh 1500 model. Attracting more and more customers into dealerships is not an easy task, and this is where special models and limited editions come in handy sometimes. With a brand new Sierra 1500 on its way to dealerships, GMC just unveiled a new model. It’s called the Sierra AT4 and combines enhanced off-road ability with extra standard features and more premium appointments.
Designed for the customer "who wants an elevated presence on the road and the capability to venture off life’s beaten path," the Sierra AT4 also marks the debut of a new trim that will be offered on every GMC model in the next two years. Whether specs will be similar, it remains to be seen, but all we know is that the Sierra AT4 rides higher than the standard pickup truck and comes with an extended list of standard features. But despite boasting more luxury and sitting higher above the ground, the AT4 isn’t GMC’s highly anticipated response to the Ford F-150 Raptor. But let’s find out more about this trim in the review below.

The GMC Sierra AT4 is Here to Put the Hurt on the Ford F-150 Raptor, Ram Power Wagon, and the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro
The latest GMC Sierra is one mean-looking truck, and it puts the Ford F-150 to shame in many departments. For starters, it looks really cool thanks to that massive front grille, the tall headlamps, and the no-nonsense bumper. It also comes with a lot of premium features in Denali trim. Last but not least, it’s available with a carbon-fiber bed, the first such feature to be offered on a production truck. Say what you will, but it definitely beats the F-150’s aluminum construction. But GMC didn’t stop there and just took things up a notch with the Sierra AT4. Unveiled ahead of the 2018 New York Auto Show, the AT4 is a slightly more off-road capable, yet fancier version of the regular Sierra 1500.
2019 GMC Acadia Black Edition
What’s in a Black Edition? In the case of the GMC Acadia, a lot. The decade-old, mid-sized SUV is getting the special edition treatment in time for the 2018 New York Auto Show. Together with the equally blacked out Terrain Black Edition, the limited-run Acadia gets its name from the prevalent use of black throughout its body, giving potential customers a personalized interpretation of an SUV that’s already teeming with its own personality.
Now that we’ve seen it’s slightly lesser brother, the 2019 Chevy Silverado, it’s about time GMC pulls the covers of the Sierra. Set to be more luxurious, with a fairly different look outside, it’s certainly not something you want to miss. You never know, it just might be your next truck!
Mercedes-Benz X-Class Vs. The Competition
Mercedes-Benz just made quite the splash when it dropped the new X-Class. Framed as the first truly “upscale” pickup truck, the X-Class intends on redefining the midsize segment with unprecedented levels of luxury and refinement. It might seem like a strange combination to mate luxury with pickups, but as Mercedes points out, “the number of pickups for private use is increasing. They are no longer viewed purely as workhorses.” As such, the X-Class aims to broaden the pickup’s buyer appeal, seeking out folks like “land owners and farmers in Argentina, business owners and building contractors in Australia, families with an affinity for premium products in Brazil, trend-conscious individualists in South Africa and Great Britain as well as sporty adventurers in New Zealand and Germany.” Sounds like quite the collection of buyers. But here’s the thing – is the X-Class really all that revolutionary?
To find out, we placed it alongside some of its biggest competition, including the Toyota Hilux, the Volkswagen Amarok, and the Ford Ranger. And, since its possible Merc might bring the X-Class stateside eventually, we threw in the GMC Canyon Denali as well. Read on for all the specs and info you need, and let us know in the comments how you think the X-Class stacks up.
