This Is GM’s Torque-Filled Answer To Ford's Raptor And Ram's Rebel TRX


It has 910 lb-ft of torque, horsepower on par with the Raptor, and meaty earth-biting off-road kit. What more could you want?

Ford was a pretty smart cookie for having the balls to build the first F-150 Raptor and sell it as capable truck with the type of out-of-the-box off-road ability usually reserved for dune rats. Not wanting to be left out, Ram , although that did little to stop the Raptor from dominating its niche segment. To send some attention its way during the 2016 Paris Auto Show, Ram showed off a . Now, with aims to recoup some lost truck sales, it’s GM’s turn to fire off another rugged pickup.

Previously, GMC had , a tricked out version of its Silverado-based pickup with some off-road friendly toys. Unfortunately that truck received a lukewarm reception. Now, GM has decided to add to the All Terrain X family with a Silverado 2500 HD. Instead of the standard Silverado 1500 All Terrain X, this 2500 HD version carries over the 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8, giving this truck some serious grunt.

The new Raptor carries over 510 lb-ft of torque while this 2500 HD motor features 910 lb-ft, a full 400 lb-ft more.

That should translate nicely over to towing capacity, which matters to part-time desert residents who want a truck to carve up dunes with but who also need a practical vehicle for hauling a trailer full of brap braps (dirt bikes) around. Part of the All Terrain X package is visual and includes LED lights, new rims, body color moldings, and 18” wheels, but that doesn’t mean the practical stuff isn’t there. A spray-on bedliner, Front and Rear Park Assist, the Z71 off-road suspension package, underbody shield, heated steering wheel and all-weather floor liners make up the useful stuff. Eaton even throws in an automatic rear locking differential. The Sierra HD joins the All Terrain X series later this fall, so at least the wait for this new truck won't be long.
