Following up on the successful release of the 2022 GMC Sierra, the car manufacturer is already beginning to roll out details on its 2023 Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition, and it looks like a viable utility pickup for those with a particularly rugged set of needs. Detailed in a July 7 release from GMC, the upcoming 2023 Sierra AT4X includes a number of improvements that make it even more formidable in hazardous terrains, such as “3-millimeter heavy-duty steel” front and rear bumpers with UV and corrosion resistance.
The underbody protection is also set to receive an upgrade, allowing for a 32.5-degree front angle approach and 23.4-degree departure angles, as well as 11.2 inches of ground clearance. It will be powered by a hefty 6.2-liter V8 engine, and will also feature an AT4X Obsidian Rush interior complete with 12-speaker Bose Premium Series audio and “more than 40 diagonal inches of combined driver-focused digital displays,” accommodating both safety and entertainment. Pricing information for the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 ATX4 AEV Edition is not yet available, but GMC noted that more details will become available.
