Configurators for Silverado ZR2 and Sierra AT4X are live! Here are all your current options
There are more choices in the world of off-road trucks than ever before, as GM expands its own range with two new options. After Chevrolet unveiled the Silverado ZR2 and GMC unveiled the upgraded AT4X, you can now actually build and price both trucks.
2022 The GMC Sierra AT4X offers the refreshed styling that is available in the rest of the range, as well as a little more terrain kit for those who have been let down by the (still available) standard AT4. It also includes Multimatic DSSV flush valve dampers also on the ZR2, as well as selectable front and rear cabinets and a single-pedal off-road driving mode. Sierra gets 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac MT tires as part of the package.
When it comes to the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2, you get the bolder styling that this generation is known for, and again more off-road upgrades. The new grille and “flow-tie” emblem are outstanding elements for the look, while you get DSSV-backed suspension and more movement both front and rear than Trail Boss. Like many of its competitors these days, the Silverado ZR2 gets 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires.
Both trucks pack the familiar 6.2-liter gas V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Both retain the 10-speed automatic transmission, and neither The configurator offers the optional 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel, the smaller 5.3-liter V8 or the 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder – all you can get on the Trail Boss. The standard GMC Sierra 1500 AT4, on the other hand, has diesel as an alternative to the large 6.2 V8.
Builds Silverado ZR2
At the beginning of Chevrolet’s offering, there’s only one cab configuration you can get the ZR2 with: 4WD, short-bed Crew Cab. At this time, the price starts at $ 67,920, including a $ 1,695 destination fee. The truck’s signature Glacier Blue Metallic is an option for $ 395, while you can choose from seven other free colors: Dark Ash, Red Hot, Northsky Blue, Silver Ice, Summit White, Black and Sand Dune Metallic. Whatever exterior color you choose, you get a Jet Black / Graystone interior with perforated leather seats.
Three optional packages are available for the Silverado ZR2. The $ 1,970 technology package adds a digital rear-view camera mirror, adaptive cruise control, a power tilt and telescopic steering column and a 15-inch head-up display. The other two packages are closely related, although the contents and pricing of the package differ by a few hundred dollars. Assist Step and Tonneau Value Package II, a $ 1,295 option, add a triple soft tonnage protection and 4-inch black round tubular steps. Step up to the third level of that package, and you’ll spend $ 1,895 on a REV hard-foldable tonneau lid and 6-inch black rectangular steps.
One thing to keep in mind: Some of the standalone options below (such as alternate steps or rocker protection) are not available to select if you select one of the value packages.
Other ZR2 options
Stand-alone exterior options are more or less what you’d expect, though you can opt for lower profile steps, tilt protection and the Chevrolet’s Multi-Flex tailgate (that’s $ 445). Another option that stands out is the off-road sports bar for $ 1,295, shown above. An electric sunroof is also available as a standalone option for $ 995.
Interior options on the list are related to the previously mentioned packages, with two independent options. Rear storage under the seats is $ 285, while trailer TPMS sensors are $ 50. GM is currently hitting $ 75 off the price by not equipping the ZR2 with a heated steering wheel or rear parking assist due to the chip shortage. These features will eventually become available as a reseller.
All in all, a fully charged ZR2 (minus accessories) tops the construction and price side at around $ 73,745.
Builds GMC Sierra AT4X
Go over to GMC’s build page, and your basic choices more or less reflect the ZR2. Four-wheel drive (obviously), crew cabin and short bed are a must for the Sierra AT4X. Starting prices here come in above where the ZR2 stops, with your cheapest version coming in at $ 76,045 at the time of writing. Unlike the Chevy, the Summit is White only color at no cost. Choosing GM’s premium brand for trucks means paying a premium for the other six available color schemes. Onyx Black, Quicksilver, Titanium Rush, Dynamic Blue and Desert Sand cost $ 495 extra. Choosing the Cayenne Red Tintcoat (shown above) costs an additional $ 645. All colors give an Obsidian Rush interior.
Only one optional package is currently available for the GMC Sierra AT4X. $ 535 Cargo Convenience Package adds a console-mounted safe and storage under the rear seat. Stand-alone exterior options include a $ 1,895 cat-back performance exhaust system that you can’t get on the ZR2 (at least from the factory). Steps with higher clearance, rocker protection and tonneau covers are still available on GMC’s configurator, and you have a little more freedom here as they are all standalone options. The MultiPro tailgate is a standard feature, although you can pay $ 210 extra for steplights.
What about interior design options? There are only two, if you do not choose the Cargo Convenience Package. Sport pedal protection is $ 185, while you can also get an extra trailer camera for $ 595. Again, GMC is not equipping the Sierra AT4X with rear parking assist at the moment, so you get a $ 50 discount there.
Top-end AT4X costs over $ 83,000
Check all options, and the price spread between the “base” AT4X and the fully charged model is quite close to that of the ZR2. But the fully loaded truck (including the Cayenne Red, because it looks cool) comes out $ 83 320. As with the Chevyn, it includes a $ 1,695 destination fee.
Would you pay $ 10,000 extra for the Sierra AT4X over the ZR2? Would you stick to the cheaper AT4? Let us know which way you want to go.
