GMC Sierra All-Mountain 1.0
Here in Matteson, Illinois, we’re already warming up for summer. But for our Canadian friends across the border, it can still be a bit difficult to traverse the countryside, especially up near the ski resorts. Whistler Blackcomb, a ski resort located just north of Vancouver, recently requested the help of GMC Canada in order to build a truck that’s ready to work but also able to conquer the snowy slopes.
The result? Say hello to the GMC Sierra All-Mountain 1.0, a seriously tough truck that can conquer even the most treacherous of peaks. Whistler Blackcomb commissioned the vehicle in order to reach the top of their Flute Bowl, a highly advanced area of runs previously accessible only by ski-lift.
Big. Bold. And very GMC.
The biggest thing you’ll notice is the truck’s lack of traditional tires. Instead, the All-Mountain 1.0 is outfitted with 175 Series Mattracks that displace the behemoth vehicle’s weight to less than 1.5 pounds per square inch, making it “walk” across the snow as if it were an average six-foot male. It’s also fitted with a 12-inch lift kit, front snow lights, wet sound speakers, tons of LED lights and even a Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package. Anti-lock brakes help it stay on track when going down steep mountain slopes.
Design-wise, the All-Mountain 1.0 is built to impress, with a snowy mountain view graphic dominating the truck’s otherwise jet black exterior. The grill is big, bold and very GMC, and the side is proudly emblazed with #GMCALLMOUNTAIN and Whistler Blackcomb logo markings. The black and white is punctuated by a bright red, making sure that more than just the powerful LED underlighting keeps it visible amidst the snowiest seasons on the mountain.
