GMC is putting the 2020 Acadia and Sierra on display in November at the 2019 Dubai International Motor Show. The next-generation Acadia boasts a fresh new look as well as its own take on the AT4 trim, and the new Sierra brings region-exclusive Sierra Elevation and AT4 regular cab trims.

“The Dubai International Motor Show is the ultimate event for automotive enthusiasts, this year the show is set to reach new heights and we are very excited to be able to contribute to it and give our loyal customers a sneak peek of the 2020 Sierra,” said Daniella D’Souza, GMC Middle East’s head of brand.

“With a unique mix of style, functionality, capability and smart connectivity, visitors at the show will get to see how the 2020 Acadia is an intelligent crossover that elevates the driving and passenger experiences on all fronts,” D’Souza added.

The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 builds on the next-generation pickup’s success in the Middle East by offering up the AT4 variant. Geared toward superior off-road performance, the Sierra AT4 boasts a 2-inch factory-installed lift kit, a sportier exterior complete with black chrome accents and red recovery hooks, and available Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. Making the package all the more appealing is the standard MultiPro tailgate and available CarbonPro Edition bed.

Also dropping at the show is the new and improved 2020 GMC Acadia, which comes in configurations for five, six, or seven passengers. In addition to bold new exterior styling, the Acadia also gets a new AT4 variant that provides superior off-road performance. Standard with the 2020 GMC Acadia AT4 are a 3.6-liter V6 engine, twin clutch all-wheel drive, and 17-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.

The GMC Sierra AT4 and Acadia AT4 build on the brand’s legacy for desert-capable vehicles, which has made it a favorite in the region for 92 years and counting. The 2019 Dubai International Motor Show takes place Nov. 12-16.
