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

We have to admit, we felt a pang of sympathy for the mighty GMC Sierra All Terrain Concept. While The Dodge Ramrunner and Ford F-150 SVT Raptor both held prominent spots in their respective booths at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, the Sierra All-Terrain Concept was tucked away in a corner all by its lonesome. It seems hardly a fair fate for a truck that boasts ground-stomping Fox Racing external bypass shocks, aggressive fender flares and a monstrous lift.

General Motors managed to yank a full 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque from the 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine nestled under the hood. That means that not only could you dominate any trail you set your mind to in this thing, you could also tow a full-size house along for the ride.

Unfortunately, it's unclear whether The General will be able to work up the gumption to actually produce such a truck. If it does make its way to the public sphere, odds are that the buildup would be handled by an external firm.

      Looks tough. This should be a GMC only truck without a Chevy equivalent.

        Power trucks like these have their place but not for grocery shopping. If you're going to get this monster, there should be a good reason. Besides, it doesn't look like it can carry much other than small furniture; towing is a different story but how many people are carrying a large boat or house?

        I like both this design and what I'm seeing from Hyundai/Kai. I actually don't know why you are comparing them anyways.

      I think this new gm is bad ass. and there is something wrong with all of you if you think it looks like a ford. fords are junk. never will be good. all you gm lovers think it looks like a ford makes you not really into gm. dodge has a great power wagon, and ford has the raptor but none of them have the diesel in them. that's what makes this all-terrain. and that gm finally made a truck that sits high off the ground. I love this all-terrain I hope they make it to put dodge and ford down.

      This would be an awesome truck. My only question is how it is going to behave on bouncy roads considering how much heavier that diesel engine is than a normal gasoline V8? I guess they would have to do some suspension tuning to account for that.

      That thing looks tough!! If you got rear ended by it, you would die.

      GM does not rely on a outside company for our builds like Ford and Chrysler, just so you know Zach we build are own design(the truck above) and preproduction properties with a GM workforce in warren michigan not with contract employees through rousch etc.

      If a cool truck, but it's parked way out of the way to be as far from the Ford display (and Ford trademark attorneys?) as possible.

      I hope they build it!

        And the GMC Granite too. Whatever happened to it?
