When you think about off-road pickup trucks, you may not necessarily think, “New York City.” But New York City is where we were last week, and great big off-road pickup trucks are what we saw. GMC decided to unveil the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 in NYC ahead of the 2018 New York International Auto Show.

You didn’t think Chevrolet was going to be the only one that had a great big off-road pickup in the Silverado 1500 Z71 Trailboss, did you? Absolutely not. GMC has a version of it, too, and it’s a little bit nicer with a little bit more equipment than you can get on the Silverado. Let’s go through it and see exactly what are the differences.
The 2019 Chevy Silverado wasn’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea when it was introduced. The … “styling,” we’ll call it, is a little bit wilder than what you see on the GMC Sierra. The all-new GMC Sierra AT4 is more stately, a little bit more conservative; frankly, I think the Sierra is the better-looking truck.
To turn it into an AT4, a couple of different things have happened. There’s a body-colored grille surround, body-colored bumpers front and rear, and then GMC has gone the dark-chrome route: The grille is dark chrome, as are the surrounds for the LED foglamps. There’s gloss black around the windows and doors, but GMC has also given the Sierra AT4 a splash of color: The front tow hooks are gloss red.
