2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD All Mountain Concept
The 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD All Mountain concept is a concept vehicle featuring tank-like tracks instead of wheels to help it navigate rugged, snow-covered terrain.
The one-of-a-kind snow-climbing machine made its debut in November 2017 at Vail Mountain in Colorado. GMC says that the concept takes “GMC’s signature bold design and engineering excellence to new heights”.
The Sierra All Mountain concept is built on the GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali 4WD Crew Cab platform, a truck that GMC describes as the epitome of its strength and design. Standing ready to tackle steep slopes and extreme weather conditions, the concept combines the power of the 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8 engine and first-class interior appointments of the Sierra 2500HD Denali and adds enhanced capability and features through concept Mattracks technology and GMC Accessories.
“With GMC’s focus on premium capability and design, we wanted to ensure that this concept took these signature attributes to an entirely new level,” said Carl Zipfel, GMC exterior designer. “The Sierra All Mountain concept Mattracks® technology enables the truck to conquer uncharted territory while highlighting premium interior features such as Bose speakers and upscale leather treatments.”
“The Sierra All Mountain concept is perfectly suited for the outdoor activities offered at Vail properties,” said Rich Latek, director of GMC Marketing. “This unique concept truck is a fun way to attract attention to GMC and highlight our partnership with Vail Resorts.”
The 2018 GMC Sierra All Mountain Concept features:
- Mattracks 150 Series Tracks with GMC Red finish
- Bodyside graphics
- Wheel well and underbody LED lights
- Snowboard Racks, associated accessories by Thule
- Amplifier and Dual Pod Speaker Kit, associated accessories by KICKER

The GMC Sierra All Mountain was introduced in November 2017 at Vail winter resort. It will remain on display at Vail for the winter season as part of an exclusive partnership announced earlier this year with Vail Resorts.
A similar Sierra All Mountain concept, built on a Sierra 2500HD All Terrain X platform, was also on display at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
