Can a 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD plow sand and bash through the dunes? It is an odd question, but somebody had to find out, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. The Sierra HD in question is the All Terrain X off-road package. This truck is equipped with Z71 off-road suspension, underbody skid plates, and Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires. There are also beefy side steps and a sports bar behind the cab that can house additional off-road lights.
The All Terrain X package is available with either a 6.6L Duramax V8 turbo-diesel (black truck that we recently tested) or a 6.0L gasoline V8 truck that you see here. The Sierra HD can be configured a snow plow prep package, and it can be used to plow through a sand drift, as you can see in the video.
Roman takes the 6.0L V8 truck into the dunes and through soft sand. Does the truck have enough traction and tire flotation to get through? Check out the video for all the fun with sand.
