Hmmm?????  Saddle Bags a la Dodge Ram a la Avalanche?  And is that tie downs front and rear in the floor of the bed?  Or hatches to get to an understorage area (a la Ridgeline)?  But I like 35" tires on 20" wheels.

Where's some interior shots tho?

Well, other than a different leather pattern, it looks really familiar.  Oh.  Yeah.  That's what my truck looks like!

The concept for the Avalanche was a GMC. I'm sure the interior will be upgraded when the GMT900 is replaced. We'll have to wait and see what features from the All Terrain concept are cost effective enough to make it into a production vehicle, pretty sure the side bins and the recessed tie-down points in the bed & box will.

Wow...GM got the "Give us ground clearance" memo.  Shame they'll probably miss the "Build this concept, PLEASE" memo.

the avy side bins seems to be appearing on more and more trucks.soon "Ford"will have to give in and put them on there trucks :D

The side bins are an efficient use of wasted space. Funny how cup holders, side pockets in the doors, seatback pockets and storage ideas have sprouted up everywhere. Remember when glove boxes were huge and usually full of unused junk ?

Love the concept, and even better as an Avy!

Its about time we could buy something with enough ground clearance to actually leave the paved road without dragging bottom on everything.

GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept Takes Heavy-Duty Capability To New Ground GM News 2010-12-16

The GMC Sierra concept will be at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January  :thumbsup: 

Remember the '91 Syclone, '92 Sonoma GT, '92-93 Typhoon ? They were done by Production Automotive Services in Troy, MI. If GM does build the All Terrain it will probably be low volume and upgraded by a secondary company, the actual trucks will come off the assembly line in Flint, MI or Fort Wayne, IN

First, AWESOME TRUCK!

I absolutely HATE this steering wheel. They never thought about actually using it. I drove my gf's f150 last week and everytime you press volume down (right side top left part of button on steering wheel buttons) or track down, or temp down, or whatever you figer get's lodged in between that cover and where the button submits, very uncomfortable. you have to try and avoid it every time.

Other than that, it's a very nice interior with chrome accents

It's a concept but it's buildable with mostly available GM and/or aftermarket parts. It's a peek at the next generation trucks, the rear fenders/box look like a sure bet for production and the 4x4 concept ones could fit duals. The interior is GMT900 Denali, (GM isn't showing all thier cards yet).
