The 2019 GMC Sierra AT4 and Ram Rebel are both formidable half-ton off-road packages, but is one clearly better than the other?
We visited General Sam’s off-road park outside Huntsville, TX to put these trucks through the off-road ringer.
The Sierra AT4 comes fitted with the big 6.2-liter V8, a two-inch lift, skid plates, Rancho shocks and off-road tuned suspension, much the same as the upgrades in the Rebel. That truck gets a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, a one-inch lift, unique suspension and skid plates. Rebels can also be had with a V6 and a V8 with eTorque
Both of these trucks sell for over $60,000, and for that money, many high-tech features start to come into play. The GMC Sierra AT4 is packed with cameras, offering different views while out on the trail, along with a nifty head-up display that can show you off-road angles. In the Ram Rebel, air suspension at all four corners helps to get you down the trail in comfort and can even help to raise the body of the vehicle to clear obstacles.
For rubber, both trucks use Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, though on the Rebel they are slightly larger.
So which is actually better off-road? The capability of these trucks is so close, so making that call is tough. You’ll have to watch the entire video above to see which performs better.
