It’s still a long way from winter, which means that the notion of probing deep into the wilderness doesn’t yet pose a masochistic challenge. Spend any time in a resort area and you’ll soon realize that people like where trucks can take then as passionately as the vehicles themselves. To that end, the truck people at GMC have strutted out their newest concept truck, the Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX, with the spelling correct. Fittingly, GMC held the reveal last week in Loveland, Colorado, at the Overland Expo Mountain West 2021 trade show for outdoorsy types. The OVRLANDX takes a Canyon AT4-package midsize pickup, with a 3.6-liter V-6 and eight-speed automatic transmission for power, and starts piling the crates on the wagon, pardner.
When it comes to proper stance and accessorization, it’s immediately clear that with the OVRLANDX, GMC has clearly rung the bell here. With 10 inches of ground clearance and a 27.7-degree standard approach angle, the OVRLANDX rides on 33-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires on 17-inch AEV Crestone wheels. Guy lines at thre corners of the windshield lift overhanging branches away. A roof-mounted tent, 270-degree awning, traction boards, onboard cooler and kitchenette are part of the package. So is a solar panel. Turnkey brush-busting option groups are popular with truck and SUV retailers, most notably Jeep. It’s clear that at least some of this package will make it to the showrooms intact, and likely soon.
