  1. My dealer refused to discuss pricing or let me pay a down payment. Up until now I have only put down the original $100. Obviously the dealer was doing this to their advantage. My AT4X is still at the distribution center (since 11/10), and I am going to another local GMC dealer today to put $1K down, lock down the price, and place my order for a Canyon AT4X First Edition. At this point I am very wary of my yet to be received Sierra AT4X. It has already had a very troubled and mysterious life, and I think I would be constantly worried about build quality and the impact of sitting in the hot sun for months without any wax on the paint (my OCD).
  2. We will take a hit on the financing with the 0% 3yr financing ending on Halloween. I'll see what my dealer can do for me. We would be trading in our 2019 AT4 6.2L, so lots of variables to plan with. Call me naïve, but I thought GM would do the right thing and extend the 0% financing to all of the 2022 orders they have yet to fulfill........... GM's delays will definitively result in a bigger financial requirement on our part, and I'm sure many will "walk". I did receive notification today that my truck arrived at the distribution center.
  3. I have the Falken's on my AT4 and there is only a bit more noise and ride harshness than the OE GY's. My wife is the AT4's primary driver and she has not complained about the Falken's, and has even commented that she no longer feels like we need to level it and put on 34's (aesthetics). She has demanded I take off Cooper and Bridgestone AT's on past trucks\SUV's. I can attest that they have much better grip than the GY's on steep grass\gravel ascents and mud; but, that would be obvious. Dry and wet asphalt grip is not noticeably different than the GY's.
  4. Has everyone who pre-ordered a Sierra AT4X received\offered their truck or am I the only one who has yet to receive it? Dealer said they would have it last Monday, but so far crickets. I originally reserved it on the first day, ordered it on the first day, was built in early May, sat in Central Mexico until now, and now it's "somewhere". I'm wondering what I did to GM to be deprioritized.
  5. FJB - I'm right there with you. I did reserve a Canyon AT4X First Edition too as a back-up with a different dealer. I'm very particular with my vehicles, and do not like the thought of the truck sitting through the entire Texas summer with the interior baking everyday and no wax on the paint.
  6. I'm in the same boat. My truck was built in May and has been awaiting "shipping". Not thrilled that my '22 will already be a model year old and has been baking in the hot Texas (?) sun for a couple of months either. I would have preferred if GM said they did not have enough parts to build my truck, at present, and then notify me when they did. This has kind of taken the luster off of the whole "be the first to reserve the new AT4X", which I did....
  7. I finally got word from the Sales Manager that my truck (AT4x was built but sitting in a lot waiting for chips. No expected date was provided regarding when it would ship.
  8. I received an email from the sales manager at the dealer that the 6.2L was not available and I would have to decide on the 5.3L or 3.0L for my "Denali order". OK, as I ordered a AT4X and it only comes with the 6.2L, this does not pertain to me - right? I also got an email from GMC\Buick saying that I needed to confirm my order with my dealer for my "2019 GMC Sierra 1500" - what? I do have a 2019 Sierra AT4, at present. Seems like GM and my GMC dealer are very confused and sending out emails with incorrect\misleading information. When I reply with what I "think they are asking", this only creates more confusion. I have no idea what the status of my AT4X order is, at present. Reserved on the first day and placed order in January, which was confirmed by GM. Received production confirmations and all that. No freaking clue what is happening and when I will actually receive my truck. Very happy, however, I have my current AT4 and got Falken ATW's, which greatly improved the offroad capabilities with minimal impact to onroad composure.
  9. AT4x does not have the option of 20" wheels, otherwise I would have gone with the 20's. Literally the only choice I had when ordering our AT4x was what color, and my wife insisted on white (again).
  10. Apologize if this was covered and I missed it. But does anyone know why the AT4x has 32" tires and the ZR2 has 33"? Seems very odd to me, and trying to understand the reasoning. I might see if I can swap the 33" 's on my current 2019 AT4. Or, get some 33" Falkens for the incoming AT4x, but wondering if there is any "real" reasons the AT4x got small feet?
  11. One of my chief complaints about my 2016 Suburban and 2019 AT4 is that I have to take my eyes off the road/trail/goat track to shift gears manually. Not that big of a deal on the road, though I do prefer to manually shift on curvy mountain roads, but it is dangerous and a nuisance when manually shifting on the narrow cow paths on our coastal cattle ranch. Really looking forward to the floor mounted shifter and paddles on my ordered AT4x.
  12. GM sent me an email with the brochure. It looks like most of the options are dealer accessories. I did not see the Borla as an option, which is a requirement for me. Truck looks fully loaded otherwise.
  13. I paid the $100 to reserve an AT4X last Fall. Salesman contacted me yesterday and told me that GM is only allowing me to pick the color, and I cannot select any options. Weird. They are not asking for a down payment nor quoting me a price. I placed the order and am hopeful I can add options at a later point and that I do not have to deal with any malarkey further down the process. I purchased my current 2019 AT4 from them, and that buying experience was great. Hopefully this goes the same.
  14. So I paid my $100 and Reserved a new AT4x. Seems like they addressed my (very few) complaints with the AT4. Lockers front and rear, center-shifting - which I hope means it is easier to manually shift for off-roading, Drive modes\traction control, multimatic dampers, and the rock rails. I was planning on purchasing an extended warranty, better AT's, and Bilsteins on all four corners, but decided to "try" and trade-in our present AT4 for a new AT4x. That and my wife saw the new one when I was watching TFL, and the decision was made for me.
  15. I think a lot of it is the 4WD system and advanced traction management. Remember when TFL compared a new Tahoe Z71 against a new Trailboss: Yukon AT4 vs Trailboss, with the AT4 having the inferior Trailrunners. Which, I believe, is why our 2008 Range Rover with mild Continental AT's is way more competent and stress free. The extra tail weight and eLSD might be factors too. I love the 6.2L and the versatility of a pick-up, but I was hoping to be able to use our AT4 more to get around the ranch. I will be putting more aggressive AT's on the AT4, as I am sure that will help, but don't think it will ever be close to the Rover for hill climbing.
