GMC Sierra All Terrain HD concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Cars are cool, but we certainly love ourselves some big, bad, hardcore pickups – you know, like the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. General Motors' conceptual answer to Ford's desert-blasting pickup is this, the Sierra All Terrain HD concept, which we'll be seeing for the first time at the Detroit Auto Show next week.

GMC's brutish pickup relies on The General's 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8 for power – 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque, to be exact – and higher ground clearance, a wider stance and serious suspension upgrades make the All Terrain concept capable of storming through, well, all types of terrain.

Word on the street is that if GM gets up the gall to produce such a truck, it will likely be outfitted by a second-tier firm outside of the GM production lines (like a Roush F-150, for example). Regardless, we want this thing to be built, and badly. See a whole slate of new high-res photos for yourself in the gallery below. Oh, and don't forget about the Ram Runner, Chrysler's foray into the niche.

      alot bigger than the raptor also a bigger price tag around 65,000 i heard

      with a front end that big,

      you could even hide a Fiat 500 there...

      This would give GMC a truck that's actually a model unique to them. Rather than being a Silverado that's had the GMC body installed
        • 4 Years Ago
        That would be nice, though I doubt it'll be able to get away with not having a Chevy variant. That's how it's always been

      Meh, not impressed. Still seems like too much of an "I wanna play too!" poorly executed project than a real competitor for the Raptor. I'm not sure how that front end would hold up in a real desert situation either...Too much grille, not enough skidplate.

        I don't think this is meant to be a Raptor competitor, more of an RRSV vehicle

        Raptor Rescue and Salvage Vehicle.

        RSSV? You must think yourself very clever.

        Which one has run Baja and finished third in its class? Which one has over a year of successful sales, far exceeding Ford's forecasts...so much so that they created another line with super crews as well as super cabs...so much so that they are putting $10-20k markUP on the truck when others can't sell them with that much markDOWN...so much so that the border patrol has ordered them because no one else has a competitive offering?

        Yeah, you're very clever.

        But Ford's 'clever-er.'

        Another name to downrank religiously... With that kind of ignorance, I know nothing intelligent is to come from you. Thank you, have a nice night.

      This is really NOT a competitor to the Raptor, but as explained right from the first reveal, this is a mechanical midpoint between the Raptor and PowWag. The Diesel power puts it in a price class by itself, of course. A cool alternative to the Diesel, especially for a concept truck, would be an LS7 derived, high-torque gasser.
      If you think big 3/4-Tons cant fly through the Desert, check out CORE.

      As long as they don't advertise it as a worker's vehicle but rather a vehicle for the cool, educated, rich man, then I'll take one!
        • 4 Years Ago
        You're oblivious to how much of an idiot you are aren't you?
      • 3 Years Ago
      Yes please bring the truck into production! I farm and ranch for a living in western ok and we owne 4 gmc duramaxs and love everyone of them but we are a little rough on them and we get into trouble on our ground clearance out here. I would love to have one of these trucks if not 4 of them. The trucks we owne are very well built but I would love to have something tufer like this truck!
      • 4 Years Ago
      Raptor all the way
      • 4 Years Ago
      Very butch looking.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Can I see some real dirty play pics instead of some rendered nonsense? Please and thank you GM.
        • 4 Years Ago
        No joke. Who decided to promote an "All Terrain" concept truck with only pristine studio shots instead of dirty action shots? Advertising fail.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Honestly, I hope they don't make this exactly like the render. Every HD truck GM has been pumping out for the last few body styles have been directly copies of F-250's and Super Duties. Perhaps it's just my eye, but the geometry of the profiles is near identical. Don't get me wrong, I love the look of the big Fords, but I'd kind of like GM to go their own direction... for the sake of diversity.

      It's gonna need better seats at least I would think...
