GMC Sierra AT4X Gets AEV Touches for 2023

Sierra ATX4 gets even more capable

  • Skidplates, bumpers, and cosmetics make up bulk of AT4X AEV Edition

  • American Expedition Vehicles Big in off-road customs


GMC has just announced another partnership with off-road vehicle experts American Expedition Vehicles. The result is a GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X with even more off-road capability and some seriously sweet wheels.

The Sierra AT4X, which was revealed only a few months ago, is already a big upgrade to the AT4 luxury-off-road trim. It includes parts like Multimatic’s DSSV spool valve dampers, longer suspension travel, e-locking differentials front and rear, and a 6.2L V8 with 10-speed auto.

Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV adds stamped steel bumpers front and rear. These 3mm thick bumpers are powder and e-coated for a durable finish and have heavy-duty recovery points and both ends of the truck. The front bumper is winch-capable, and GMC shows one installed to help get you out of trouble.

There are five new skid plates, made from hot-stamped boron steel. The plates protect the front approach of the truck, the steering, and transfer case, as well as the fuel tank and differential.

Ultra-cool laser-engraved 18-inch wheels are fitted. The gloss black finish makes GMC and Salta logos jump out at you. The wheels are wearing 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, offering about half an inch more diameter than the AT4X’s Duratracs.

The end result is improvements to ground clearance, approach, and departure angles. Plus a truck that looks positively mean. Completing the look, GMC has added plenty of AEV badges including new headrest embroidery.

With a max payload of 1,290 lbs and top towing of 8,700 lbs, the new Sierra AT4X AEV is expected to go on sale later in the 2023 model year.
