2023 GMC Sierra AT4X To Get AEV Off-Road Equipment As Standard6
The 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X features a wide variety of off-road-ready equipment, adding functionality and capability over the rest of the GMC Sierra 1500 lineup. Now, GM Authority has learned that the Sierra AT4X’s off-road chops will be enhanced even further with the addition of new bits and pieces plucked from the recently revealed 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X AEV Edition.
According to GM Authority sources, the “standard” 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X will receive new equipment from the AEV Edition later on in the 2023 model year. Although the 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X will carry over from the 2022 model year largely unchanged, the off-roader will gain these new features as standard at a later point in the 2023 model year.
For those readers who may have missed it, General Motors unveiled the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition earlier this month as the most off-road-capable factory Sierra 1500 ever produced. The truck was developed with input from American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), and features a wealth of extras to pad its rough stuff credentials. Now, the “regular” GMC Sierra AT4X will be equipped with some of these extras as standard later on in the 2023 model year.
The components set to be added as standard for the “regular” 2023 GMC Sierra AT4X include:
- AEV stamped steel front and rear bumpers with heavy-duty recovery points and winch capability
- Hot-stamped boron steel front approach skid plate
- Grille with gloss Black header and insert bars with dark nickel accents
- 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires
Exact pricing information for all 2023 models is currently unavailable, but it’s reasonable to assume that the updated Sierra AT4X with the AEV accessories will get an MSRP bump over that of the early 2023 model-year AT4X.
Per a GMC spokesperson who recently spoke to GM Authority, “If customers are eager to get their hands on an AT4X sooner, they can work with their dealer to order a carryover 2023 Sierra 1500 AT4X which will share the same advanced off-road capability and on-road confidence provided by the 2022 AT4X.”

- Sweepstakes Of The Month: Win a 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible. Details here.
3 2 1. Let the complaining begin because GMC will now add a price increase onto the AT4X. We don’t want this equipment and shouldn’t have to pay extra for what we don’t want.
These AEV trucks struggle with me. The bumpers look tacked on. More capable sure, but doesn’t pull off an OEM appearance.
The rear bumper especially looks excessively busy. Fake vents where the exhaust should be.
I know it has a winch, but actual tow hooks would look better then faux plastic honeycomb covers.
I don’t need or want all the off road goodies, but I do want the better AT4X interior goodies.
why not the 3.0 diesel in the AT4X ???
I’d love the ability to throw 34 or 35 inch tires on without having to do silly Fender mods. The 33’s just look undersized on this size truck.
