GMC Savana AT4 Rendered12
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.

That’s actually really cool.
Definitely it needs to happen. Just look at all the RV manufacturers that build VERY lucrative offroad beasts.
Dang! I like that!
Love these GM authority renderings and the ideas behind them.
GMC really needs to reconsider its stance on not making a Savana AT4. This is a huge market that’s untapped and nobody has really filled it. Would provide a huge reason for actual people to buy the Savana, rather than just fleets.
That’d be cool. Bumpers and wheels make a big difference.
I know they can build 4×4 vans aftermarket but there was a point in my life where a 2500/3500 Savana 4×4 from the dealer would’ve been my go to for work in the field. Give a little love to the interior and seating, keep the 6.0 (the new LT8 wouldn’t hurt, either), add a 50gal+ tank and you have a winner for remote work.
I have a 2008 Savana and love it.
I planned to buy a new one if they would ever provide yellow exterior and tan interior. Do not like the grey.
I would by this one in a heartbeat. Whoever designed this one should get a raise!
Still have my 1999 Safari Custom van too.
This thing may trigger an “A-Team” reunion…
Good job GM Authority. Would that it would happen. Put a hi-top on there and there’d be no reason for me to ever consider another van.
As other manufacturers apparently profitably go after the upfitter market GM stands pat, though – year after year after year. Too bad!
Just got a 2021 GMC Savana passenger van in red. Trying to accessorize it – nothing out there. Not even side stripes but love the car – 6.6 V8 goes like hell. It replaced a 1993 Chevy Rallye van with a very anemic 350 V8 that I had from new. Gave it to my daughter who loves it. The vans are a much better value than any of the pickup trucks.
Would love to see this AT4 done to a Savana Van, I have a AWD GMC Savana for 13 years, love it
Please put into production!!!!!!!!!!
recently purchased GMC 2013 savanna AWD explorer conversion van. Really sharp looking, need to add front tow hooks to go beach riding. Are there any videos on how to install?
