The 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 4×4 All Terrain X trim couldn’t have any better timing, with gas prices now comfortably low enough to own a full-sized pickup truck, it makes for a very tempting buy especially with all the features the All Terrain X has in store for you. While a full-sized pickup truck may be too big for the casual buyer as it does bring with it the usual parking challenges, it does pay for it in utility.
The 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 4×4 All Terrain X is Both Comfortable and Rough at the Same Time
The 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 4×4 All Terrain X is one handsome truck, with the All Terrain X trim blacking out all the chrome garnish in exchange for black chrome or matte black. The front end looks like it’ll bulldoze any left lane laggards and the sides resemble something from the military; it’s that burly especially with the blacked-out rims on knobby tires. The back is less busy but the light designs for both the heads and tails are a sight to behold. Powering the Sierra is a 5.3-Liter pushrod V8 pushing out a decent 365hp for its 5688lb curb weight along with 383lb-ft of torque.
On the inside of the 2016 Sierra 1500 All Terrain X, creature comforts such as a wireless charging pad on the center console, a Bose audio system, and heated leather seats to name a few are present. Standard features include a folding back seat to fit cargo under them and able to seat three adults comfortably. The leather seat’s red stitching and woven carbon fiber on some bits as well as using an analogue gauge cluster show attention to detail. A plethora of AC and DC outlets in the cabin, twin glove boxes, and even an 8-inch infotainment display that is compatible with Apple Carplay and Android Auto; now that’s an interior!
Driving the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 4×4 All Terrain X on the road is hampered by two things; its weight and knobby tires; the fuel economy and grip is taken away by the tires designed for grabbing on to mud and dirt while the 5688lb weight it has to haul takes a hit on the 0-60 times clocking in a 6.6 seconds. While the 0-60 time is still good for a pickup of this size and weight, it’s trailing the competition by 0.8 seconds; but who races pickups anyway? Utility-wise the Sierra can pull just about anything; and the off road capability, while not hard is still very capable; just don’t ask too much from the Sierra as the under chassis isn’t fully protected.
