April 10th, 2024 by

2024 GMC Sierra 2500 HD AT4 When you need to reliably move around people, cars, boats, or nearly anything, the 2024 GMC Sierra 2500 AT4X Duramax is the vehicle for you and all of your needs. It’s more than just a truck that tows, more than just a truck that hauls, and much more than just a truck that can carry your whole family and all of their stuff in fantastic luxury. The Sierra 2500 AT4X is a decision you make when you need ultimate luxury, utility, and reliability. 

Forbes Truck Of The Year

Forbes writer Josh Max recently came to a similar conclusion during his testing of the GMC Sierra 2500 AT4X Duramax. As he put it, “It is, so far, the ‘truck of the year.’”

New Year, New AT4X Trim

This year is the first year of the AT4X off-road trim for the Sierra. It features multimatic DSSV dampers with a 1.5-inch suspension lift, rear e-locking differential, 25-inch Goodyear Territory tires, new and AT4X specific front upper and lower control arms plus steering knuckles, a larger steel transfer case skid plate and front aluminum skid plate, AT4X-only Obsidian Rush interior with massaging, full-grain leather-wrapped front seats, and a max towing capacity of 18,500 lbs.

Powerful Engine Choices

All 2024 GMC Sierra 2500 models are available with either a 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that produces 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque or a 6.6-liter Duramax turbo diesel that puts out 470 horsepower and a whopping 975 lb-ft of torque. Both engines have an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission that makes effortless shifts.

DSSV Dampers Are A Must

“To truly appreciate the vehicle, you should know about its MultiMatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) dampers mated to a factory-installed 1.5-inch suspension lift that helped make short order of boulders, “roads”, potholes and downed trees. I was the butter and they were the bread – I just glided right over. A front aluminum skid plate and underbody steel transfer case skid plate keep your underbody components – steering rack, transfer case, engine and exhaust – from being scraped as you slam over your favorite jagged, inhospitable terrain.”

Mighty & Comfy

It wasn’t all about mighty in the Sierra 2500 AT4X for Mr. Max, though. No, he marveled over the unrivaled luxuries and amenities the Sierra 2500 offers buyers. Again, it’s more than just something that hauls and tows. It is a big truck that treats you like royalty. 

More Luxury Than You Expect

“Here’s where might meets posh. You’ve got power massaging front seats, full-grain leather-wrapped seats front and rear, handsome Vanta Ash wood décor and a 12-speaker Bose Premium Series audio system with Centerpoint surround technology. The sound is on-point … A 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, 12.3-inch driver information center, and 15-inch head-up display are attractive and easy to use.”
