As we covered previously, GMC is gearing up to offer an AT4 variant “across the entire GMC lineup in the next few years.” Naturally, we had to reach out to confirm with the automaker just how literal that statement truly was, specifically with regard to a possible GMC Savana AT4 variant.
However, according to GMC Communications’ Stuart Fowle, a Savana AT4 ain’t happening, with the “entire GMC lineup” statement actually referencing the brand’s “retail customer model range” and not the fleet business-oriented Savana. Which is a shame, as we would certainly love to see a Savana AT4, and based on comments posted by our readers, we aren’t the only ones. With that in mind, we decided to render our own GMC Savana AT4.
For those who may be unaware, the AT4 line is GMC’s off-road-flavored trim level. First launched with the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500, the AT4 lineup also includes the 2020 GMC Acadia and 2020 GMC Sierra HD, with the GMC Terrain, GMC Canyon, and GMC Yukon all expected to get AT4’d in the next few years.
So then, even though it ain’t gonna happen, what would a GMC Savana AT4 look like?
Up front, we find a completely reworked fascia, with loads of black trim bits added to the headlamp housings, grille surround, and lower bumper. The bumper also rocks the AT4-specific aesthetic and two red tow hooks, while the GMC badge in the grille is also bright red. Higher up, we added a subtle intake slot to the front of the hood.
Moving into the profile, the GMC Savana AT4 rides on fresh alloys finished in gloss black and wrapped in all-terrain rubber. The fenders and lower side skirts are also finished in black, and a prominent black stripe complete with AT4 branding runs down the side—because stripes are awesome, especially on a van.
The rear end gets a new AT4-specific rear bumper complete with step-ups, which could be used to help secure gear on the roof. Twin trapezoidal exhaust tips, a hitch and more red tow hooks finish it off. Finally, the whole thing is draped in a searing shade of red, which looks awesome when paired with the black trim bits.
