The most exciting news is that the AT4X will come as standard with the 33-inch Goodyear tires, which will be complemented by specially modified Multimatic DSSV dampers and wheel arches. Thanks to all above, this model should provide an even more impressive performance off the road than the AT4 model.

Moreover, we also expect the new model to come with unique leather-appointed front seats, embroidered front head restraints, Apple CarPlay compatibility, Wireless Smartphone Charging, and the new 8″ Diagonal GMC Infotainment System with Navigation.
