Meet the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition

2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition | Temecula Valley, CA

Ready for the next generation of off-road capability? Take adventuring in Temecula Valley to new frontiers with the recently revealed 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition. Coming soon to Temecula Valley Buick GMC, this incredible truck brings together two powerhouses — GMC and American Expedition Vehicles — to impressive effect.

The first-ever Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition builds on the already amazing AT4X, which returns to the lineup for 2023. The 2023 Sierra 1500 AT4X is naturally off-road-capable due to features like front and rear e-locking differentials, Multimatic DSSV™ dampers, and a two-speed transfer case with selectable drive modes for the best traction. With just these features alone, not to mention a 2-inch suspension lift, the AT4X is an incredible specimen perfect for making your California dreams a reality.

The AEV Edition adds extra confidence for tough off-road conditions. Steel front and rear bumpers with recovery points and winch capability allow the Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV to adventure more confidently on treacherous terrain. Achieve maximum impact resistance with five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates that protect the underbody. 18-inch AEV Salta wheels with a recessed valve system guard from debris (and look good doing it), while 33-inch Goodyear® Wrangler Territory MT tires confidently climb Temecula Valley’s hill country.

But the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition isn’t just a tough off-roader. It’s a handsome truck through and through, which is just what you’d expect from a team-up between GMC and AEV. The exterior features gloss black door handles and an updated front grille and fascia. AEV branding is exclusive to the 2023 Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV, including on the bumper and all-weather floor liners.

The AEV Edition offers a premium interior with leather-wrapped power-massaging front seats and Vanta ash wood trim. The 12-speaker Bose® Premium Series audio system keeps road trips to a California national park entertaining, and seating for up to six people ensures that you can share the joy with your whole crew. You also get a class-leading 40 diagonal inches of digital displays to keep you in the loop on the go.

GMC Sierra 1500 Adds Entry-Level Elevation Trim

A new trim level is on the way for the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. Known as the entry-level Elevation, it’s shaping up to be a strong option if you’re looking for a full-size truck at a high-value price in Temecula Valley, California.

The Sierra lineup already includes a regular Elevation trim, but the new entry-level Elevation will be a distinct choice at what’s likely to be a lower price point.

The entry-level Elevation will be available in two bed/cab configurations: Double Cab/Standard Box 4WD and Crew Cab/Short Bed 4WD. Both of these layouts will only be available with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a 2.7-liter inline-four turbo engine that generates 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.

As a value-oriented truck, the entry-level Elevation is likely to offer a smaller selection of standard features than the regular Elevation. Key standard features include large P275/60R20SL all-terrain blackwall tires and a 40/20/40 split-folding front seat. This trim will also receive two standard 120-volt power outlets: one mounted in the bed and one installed in the instrument panel.

We’ll have more details soon on this new trim level. In the meantime, visit us here at Temecula Valley Buick GMC to explore the other exciting options in the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 lineup.

The GMC Sierra Pickup Gained Market Share in 2020

2020 GMC Sierra 1500 | Temecula, CA

Last year was an unprecedented time for automakers and Americans alike, but we’ve made it into 2021 stronger than ever. Despite the tough times experienced by its contemporaries, GMC entered the new year with a big win for its flagship pickup.

According to market data revealed by Steve Hill, the Vice President of General Motors, GMC’s iconic Sierra pickup truck was one of only two trucks that actually gained market share during 2020. Meanwhile, major competitors saw large drops in sales drop, even as General Motors’ strong performance allowed it to become the highest-selling pickup manufacturer in America.

During 2020, over 250,000 GMC Sierra trucks were sold. This represents an 8.91 percent growth in sales from 2019. Altogether, the GMC Sierra’s market share in the United States increased from 9 percent to 11 percent in 2020.

The GMC Sierra’s big market share gain during a time when most other trucks saw drastic decreases is a testament to its quality. Industry-leading features like the six-function MultiPro tailgate, a first-in-class Head-Up Display, and durable carbon-fiber bed help give the pickup an edge over its competition.
