GMC Launches AT4 Sierra Off-Road Performance Package

Recommended Posts

I said this poorly before. 

 

5.3 or 6.2. Difference to GM is the bore and stroke. Inlet pipe is actually cheaper to manufacture and the exhaust is a wash for them. It isn't like they are not saving on the parts they are not installing eh? So this is no cost to them and 5K to us? Really. But I guess that only works in a rational universe. :loser:

Oh thank God, I thought they meant the performance parts, intake/cat back, added $5,000 to the MSRP which I thought was a bit ridiculous. But that is including the entire AT4 package, not just the go-fast parts. Good to see GM doing what we all did anyway. Take the money away from the after market and give us what we want from the factory with full warranty and no complaining (they tell me to remove my AFE intake every time I go in there).

So for essentially 5,000 dollars you get a package of parts that would cost at most on the street 2,000 dollars tops! Does this package cost include the 10 speed and 6.2 upgrade or is that a separate package and if yes then this is a complete rip off warranty and all!

What do you trust more car dealer or gas station burrito? I guess in this case you get the warranty with the parts.

Fun fact:

The 5.3 and 6.2 engines both have the same stroke but there is a large difference in bore so the block is different and so are the heads. The $2900 or so to get the 6.2/10 speed over the 5.3 and 8 speed is well worth it IMO. You can skip the intake and exhaust if you like. The gains there are far less for the money then the engine/trans upgrade alone.

Blocks are the same...Bore size & spacing different...heads obviously different...Intake/Throttle Body different...Crank material different that is about all...

The blocks are not the same. The liners are different and therefore the PN changes between the two.

The exterior dimensions remain the same. Internally they are not. Same as the previous Gen LT and LS before.

So the substructure "aka" blocks are absolutely the same albeit the few mentioned items?

Soooo, yeah,  that's what makes the blocks different.  Same exterior dimensions do not make the same block.  An old 350 and an old 400 small block are the same externally (except freeze plugs) but are not the same block.  A big block 396 and a big block 454 are not the same blocks although externally about the same.

So a Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun and a Remington 410 gauge shotgun are absolutely the same except for a few details.

      See a lot of questions asked about this and not a lot of set info on the upgrade.  Hope this helps even anyone trying to set it up.
       
      **READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND WATCH ALL VIDEOS PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING PURCHASING OR INSTALLATION**
       
      Apple CarPlay / Android Auto functionality is not supported in any 2014-2015 (Many 2016) Silverado/Sierra’s. This is due to neither application being available from Google or Apple when these vehicles being built, therefore not an available option during these model years. The following instructions are designed to simplify the process as much as possible.
       
      Three things are required for this upgrade (ONE) Radio Module, (ONE) HMI Module, and (ONE) USB Hub 2016+.
       
      Search around for the modules, they are available for purchase from many different locations. EBay, totaled vehicles, junkyards, or other various websites to find them. AGAIN, if the part numbers are not listed below DO NOT purchase them.
       
       It is highly encouraged to not try and cut corners with purchasing part numbers of modules not listed as they cannot be flashed to work properly.
       
      **DISCONNECT THE BATTERY PRIOR TO INSTALLING FRESHLY UPDATED MODULES**
       
      TOOLS REQUIRED:
      Trim Removal tool
      10 mm Socket
      7 mm Socket
       
      PARTS REQUIRED
      USB HUB P/N 13519224 (BLACK) P/N 13509943 (WHITE)
       
      HMI Module
      USE ONE OF THE BELOW P/N’S IF YOUR TRUCK CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH NAVIGATION. ONLY REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ONE P/N.

      Once acquiring the parts you can now send them to be flashed. These modules will be flashed to your VIN and will then be plug and play. Copy the link and follow the prompts.  
       
      http://www.whiteautoandmedia.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=98&category_id=44&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=54
       
      If you have followed all the directions up and to this point, select yes for hardware match. You can chose if you would like the maps updated on your NAV if you so choose. You will be emailed your order number from WAMS, this is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. You will be required to ship your parts either FedEx or UPS, they will not accept packages from USPS. You will need to write your order number on the box to ensure your order is properly handled. Turn around is approximately one week from shipment to return. ONLY ship your (ONE) Radio Module and (ONE) HMI Module. Maintain your USB Hub.
       
      Once you have received your parts from WAMS you can begin installation. Disconnect your battery prior to installation.
       
      To install the radio module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2MYuuyqLrs. For the purpose of this install start the video at 1:00. Stop the video at 2:04, the radio module is visible with a green connector on the far left. Simply begin disconnecting all of the connectors plugged into the module, once all are removed you can slide the module out of the dash. It is retained only by the tension of the cables plugged into it. Replace with your new module, you can now continue the video and finish putting the dash back together. Stop the video at 4:10.
       
      To install the HMI Module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFe2gwlOsD4. Stop the video at 2:00. The module being described behind the crossbar is what you are replacing. Remove all connectors, the module is retained with a plastic clip on top. Installing the module along with the glove box, is self explanatory.
       
      Take note of the plastic tabs on the sides of the USB Hub you are preparing to install. Those tabs can be depressed with a dental pick and gradually removed out of place. Once removed, disconnect the harness and reconnect. Installation is now complete. You can now reconnect your battery and start your vehicle. Initial start up might take a few seconds to initialize, and temperature defaulting to 32 degrees is normal. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay require hardwire connection, so to test functionality it needs to be connected to the newly installed USB hub.    
       
      MVI Inc (https://www.gm-navigation.com/) offers kits and other customization options if the above is not something you feel comfortable acquiring on your own.
       
      Hope this helps, should be pretty cut and dry. There might be other methods, but this was the cheapest I discovered. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

      The all new Chevy Suburban & Tahoe along with the all new GMC Yukon have been caught testing on public roads once again. We've licensed these images so we can show you the very first look at production lighting for these future 2020 model year vehicles. 
       
      The last time we saw pre-production models of GM's full-size SUVs was last fall when the 2020 Tahoe and Yukon were caught on film for the first time. This time, the trucks look more complete and almost ready for action. 
       
      Here's what our spy photographer has to say about the 2020 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon:
       
      And here are the images:
