GMC Sierra All Mountain Concept

There’s little doubt that the automakers have come up with some pretty creative truck concepts, but GMC may have just stolen the show. The GMC Sierra All Mountain Concept took on Colorado’s Vail Mountain with a few modifications that make it more than your average heavy-duty truck.

The GMC Sierra All Mountain Concept is based on the GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali. While the truck left the production line with four-wheel drive, they made some additional adjustments. The wheels were replaced with tank-like tracks from Mattracks.

Under the hood lies a 6.6-liter Duramax® turbodiesel V8 engine that tears through snowbanks with 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. That engine is available in the stock GMC Sierra 2500HD pickup.

In addition to its high-power engine, the All Mountain Concept features all the luxuries of the GMC Sierra 2500HD. Features include a Bose® audio system, leather seats, and the latest infotainment system.

While the GMC Sierra All Mountain Concept is just that, a concept, and won’t be rolling off the production line anytime soon, drivers can still see the truck in person at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

We here at Highview Motors GMC can’t wait to see what creative concepts the luxury marque comes up with next! If you’re interested in a production model of the 2018 GMC Sierra, stop by Highview Motors GMC today.

GMC Alternative Fuel Options Expanding

GMC alternative fuel options

As the world continues to change, one thing that many people and businesses are interested in is alternative fuels. Alternative fuels are often more efficient and less expensive than standard gasoline or diesel. This is why GMC alternative fuel options are growing.

Starting early next year, GMC will begin to offer heavy-duty pickups and full-size vans that will have 6.0-liter V8 engines capable of running on compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). There will also be alternative fuel options available for GMC’s new Low Cab Forward commercial truck.

With this expansion, GM Fleet’s lineup of hybrid, EV, and alternative fuel options grows to more than a dozen cars, trucks, and crossovers. This includes vehicles like the all-new Chevrolet Bolt EV, a B20-capable 2.8-liter Duramax diesel for GMC Savana vans, and a 6.6-liter B20-capable Duramax diesel engine for the GMC Sierra HD.

“Expanding choice is the key to helping more commercial and government fleets reduce their fuel consumption, fuel costs and emissions using alternative fuels and EVs versus using traditional gasoline,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM Fleet. “There are no ‘one size fits all’ solutions for fleet managers.”
