GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept

When Ford released their Raptor off-road truck last year it pretty much made every other factory off-roader completely obsolete. You see that thing has the ability to tackle just about anything the desert can throw at it, while at the same time coddling you in air-conditioned, cruise controlled comfort. It’s big, hairy chested and aside from its optional great pumpkin’ orange paint job, is pretty damn cool. Because of this manufacturers like GM and Chrysler have been put on scramble alert to try and bring something to market that can compete with Ford’s off-road hammer.

Enter now the GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept, a truck that if produced, may give the Raptor a run for its money. You see GMC has already upped the ante with the Sierra All Terrain by packing it with their 6-speed Allison transmission and Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 that makes 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque. Suspension wise the off-roader utilizes Fox shocks with remote reservoirs, various skid-plates and a nice 3-inch lift that helps it obtain over 21-inches of ground clearance. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that we’ll most likely see this thing in production in the not-to-distant future. The real question though is, will Ford now decide to shoehorn a diesel between the Raptors frame-rails or just be content with their 411 horsepower 6.2-liter V8? 2011 should be a very interesting year.

    i noticed that it has the bedside boxes like the new ram… but will that be an option or standard? because if its an option i wouldnt check that box… why cut cargo space by adding 2 boxes that give up at least 1 foot of bedspace… should be a nice ride if its priced LOWER than the Raptor….
