Navigating the rugged snow-covered terrain is no easy thing, this has pushed GMC to roll out the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD All Mountain concept which comes with tank-like tracks instead of tires.

This ultimate off roader was presented at Vail Mountain ski resort, Colorado. GMC revealed that the vehicle can handle steep slopes and extreme weather conditions due to its rubber tanks tracks.

The truck also has bodyside graphics of mountains, underbody and wheel well LED lights, as well as snowboard racks - making it ideally suited for snow sport enthusiasts and snowy-mountain dwellers.

It also combines a coupled power of a 6.6 liter turbo-diesel V-8 engine and first-class interior appointments of the Sierra 2500HD Denali 4WD Crew Cab platform. Some of the enhanced capability features include its Mattracks rubber track technology for navigating in extreme weather, and other 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 truck also has a RIGID E-Series 30-inch Light Bar for the front of the truck, providing 50,000 plus hours of LED headlight lifespan with instant on or off to help drivers navigate in the dark.

It also has a soft roll-up tonneau cover by Advantage that helps protect items carried at the back of the truck. The beastly All Mountain concept has Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission built for on-road trucks.

GMC revealed that the truck will remain on display at Vail for the winter season as part of an exclusive partnership that was announced earlier this year with Vail Resorts. The company is also collaborating with the Vail Valley foundation, a community events nonprofit organization, and says that it will have a large presence in the Town of Vail through vehicle displays, courtesy vehicles, signage and special events.

'The Sierra All Mountain concept is perfectly suited for the outdoor activities offered at Vail properties,' said Rich Latek, director of GMC Marketing.
