GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Off-Road Concept Unveiled

GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Off-Road Concept Unveiled

Capable and impressive styling showcases brand’s off-road performance vision

2021-08-27

LOVELAND, Colo. – GMC revealed its Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX concept truck today at Overland Expo Mountain West 2021, exploring GMC’s vision for its growing lineup of premium yet capable trucks and SUVs. 

Building on the capability of Canyon AT4, the concept further elevates Canyon’s off-road credibility by showing how it could be customized for an overlanding enthusiast.

“We wanted to showcase GMC Canyon with this concept and punctuate GMC’s commitment to premium, off-road capable vehicles. Consumer reaction to this concept’s design will help us further serve the growing market of buyers leading authentic outdoor lifestyles,” said Buick and GMC Global Vice President Duncan Aldred.

With the impressive styling and premium appointments GMC customers expect, the Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX concept truck was designed for overlanding enthusiasts, with capability features that include:

  • Factory-lifted, wide off-road chassis with enhanced underbody coverage
  • Off-road rocker panel protectors
  • Cast-iron control arms
  • Heavy-duty front bumper with winch
  • Integrated front recovery points
  • Front and rear electronic locking differentials
  • Wheel flares with integrated task lamps
  • Multimatic DSSVTM dampers
  • Spare tire swivel mount so a spare tire can be kept on the back of the truck and swivel out of the way of the tailgate when bed access is needed
  • Guy lines for protecting the windshield from low-hanging branches

Power to explore rugged terrain is provided by GMC’s 3.6L V-6 engine mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The concept truck could confidently handle a variety of obstacles encountered far from civilization with a 27.7-degree approach angle and a ground clearance of 10.0 inches, boosted by 33-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires on 17-inch AEV Crestone wheels. The vehicle could engage in water fording up to 32.1 inches, and its custom-tailored snorkel could allow for filtered and cooler air intake.

Additional features that could help drivers venture off the beaten path include:

  • AEV rear off-road bumper
  • Stainless steel truck bed cap
  • Roof-mounted tent
  • 270-degree awning
  • Jerry cans for gasoline and water
  • Traction boards
  • Off-road jack and mount
  • Cooler and kitchenette
  • Truck bed storage with drawer system
  • Solar panel

All concept features are integrated with GMC’s premium design cues, resulting in a rugged-yet-premium appearance. Unique grille and headlamp finishes, distinct AT4 badges, and an exclusive leather-wrapped interior create a sense of confident capability that doesn’t compromise style or comfort.

“The Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX concept truck was designed to balance functionality with aesthetics. When you’re overlanding, capability is an important factor, but doing it with premium style and comfort elevates the experience even further for customers who truly want zero compromises,” said John Owens, lead creative designer for the concept truck.

GMC first introduced AT4 in its Sierra light-duty pickup truck in 2019, positioned as a unique persona meant to offer bold capability while maintaining the innovative technology and premium appointments associated with the brand. It has since expanded across the entire GMC lineup and continues to gain popularity, with over 30 percent of Canyon buyers choosing AT4 this year1.

Canyon is also attracting new customers to the brand with more than half of its buyers in 2021 being new to GMC2. The Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX is the perfect concept vehicle to show how GMC envisions the future of Canyon and how the brand is looking ahead to serve its growing customer base of off-roading and overlanding enthusiasts.

(VIDEO) New 2022 GMC Sierra Goes Hands-Free with Super Cruise

2021-07-23

DETROIT – The new 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 arrives this fall, featuring significant updates to design, capability and technology – including the latest version of Super Cruise1 available on the Sierra Denali. 

Super Cruise introduces on the Sierra the capability to trailer while driving hands-free on compatible roads, along with the new automatic lane change feature.

Super Cruise, the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance system, utilizes a driver attention system and precision LiDAR generated map data in addition to real-time cameras, sensors and GPS. The driver attention system uses a small camera located on the top of the steering column and works with infrared lights to determine where the driver is looking whenever Super Cruise is in operation. If the driver attention system detects the driver has turned their gaze away from the road ahead for too long, the steering wheel light bar will prompt the driver to return their attention to the road.

[VIDEO] GMC HUMMER EV Pickup Celebrates Independence Day with ‘Watts to Freedom’

The world’s-first all-electric supertruck celebrates the Fourth of July by showcasing its launch control mode’s revolutionary performance

2021-07-01

DETROIT – The 2022 GMC HUMMER EV combines American ingenuity with revolutionary performance that puts drivers in the middle of every moment. The ultimate expression of that performance will be offered in HUMMER EV’s own launch control mode, known as Watts to Freedom1. This driver-selectable feature channels the propulsion system’s tremendous power into acceleration bursts — including reaching 0-60 mph in approximately 3 seconds2.

“Watts to Freedom unlocks the full potential of the propulsion system and puts all of its available power to the pavement,” said Al Oppenheiser, HUMMER EV chief engineer. “It’s an all-encompassing experience unlike anything else — purpose-built for straight-line fun.” 

Three electric motors within the Ultium Drive system are expected to offer a GM-estimated up to 1,000 horsepower and, when multiplied through the front- and rear-drive unit gear ratios, offer up to 11,500 lb-ft of torque to the wheels2. The HUMMER EV’s extraordinary capabilities will blend with engaging user-experience technologies, creating a sense of intensity and drama for drivers and passengers.

As the vehicle readies itself for Watts to Freedom, a series of interior experiences convey the feeling of a “pre-launch countdown,” including interactive controls, unique sounds through the Bose speakers and engaging screen animations. The vehicle also activates the Adaptive Air Suspension and lowers 2 inches to prepare for the launch, providing a lower center of gravity.

“It’s an amazing demonstration of just how fast 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of electric propulsion can move you,” said Oppenheiser. “It’ll put a smile on your face every single time.”

American ingenuity is combined with American manufacturing3 as the HUMMER EV will be the first all-electric vehicle in GMC’s portfolio powered by General Motors’ new Ultium battery system. The battery cells will be produced as part of a joint venture with LG Energy Solution, at a new facility in Lordstown, Ohio.

Initial production of the HUMMER EV begins in fall 2021, at GM’s Factory ZERO, Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center3 — a nearly 40-year-old facility repurposed and retooled with a $2.2-billion investment devoted to electric vehicle production. Future production vehicles out of the factory will offer zero emissions.

Performance targets, estimates and capability specifications based on computer-aided analysis and simulation using virtual engineering tools. Estimates may vary depending on model and trim. Additional model and trim details can be found at GMC.com. Actual production model and results may vary.

Zero Emissions, Zero Limits: GMC HUMMER EV Levels Up in Off-road Testing on Legendary Moab Trails

Zero Emissions, Zero Limits: GMC HUMMER EV Levels Up in Off-road Testing on Legendary Moab Trails

2021-05-12

MOAB, Utah – The quiet revolution continues as the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup goes through its rigorous off-road testing in the lead-up to its production debut this fall. Watch as the GMC HUMMER EV team puts the world’s first all-electric supertruck through its paces on challenging trails near Moab, Utah, proving its off-road capability.

Traversing legendary trails across Moab, the team’s testing and calibration included Adaptive Air Suspension hardware, Extract Mode1, Terrain Mode, One-Pedal Driving2 control, e4WD and torque distribution, eLockers, stability control, rear steering, CrabWalk3 and more.

Available Terrain Mode, part of the GMC HUMMER EV’s Drive Mode Control, will offer two braking calibrations, with a mild braking option for two-foot driving and a purpose-designed One-Pedal Driving2 control in low-speed off-road driving. As pioneered by General Motors for other electric vehicles, One-Pedal Driving enables the driver to accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal. With Terrain Mode, that same One-Pedal Driving control is adapted with unique calibrations for speed-limited off-road driving, helping the driver to negotiate steep grades, rock crawling and other challenging terrain without having to toggle between the accelerator and brake pedal.

“One-Pedal Driving offers a great feeling of control by optimizing the regenerative braking, friction braking and drive motor torque all through the accelerator pedal,” said Aaron Pfau, GMC HUMMER EV lead development engineer. “Drivers will quickly realize the benefits once they try it off-road.”

When the road gets tough, the upcoming available Extract Mode1 feature enables the Adaptive Air Suspension height to be raised approximately 6 inches in order to help the GMC HUMMER EV negotiate extreme off-road situations, such as clearing large boulders and fording deeper water.

“The GMC HUMMER EV was a blank slate that was filled out by a dedicated team of engineers who are hardcore off-road enthusiasts,” said Pfau. “Features like One-Pedal Driving2, Terrain Mode and Extract Mode1 result in an absolute off-road beast that will take you to new places.”
