2022 GMC Sierra breaks cover with new looks, options and power
GMC has facelifted its Sierra pickup for the next model year. Sales in North America will start in early 2022, with prices ranging from $32,495 to $80,395.
All versions of the truck receive a new radiator grille, a different front bumper, and redesigned lighting all around. The headlights look almost the same, but the C-shaped DRLs are now more pronounced, while turn blinkers support multiple animation modes.
Inside, the front panel has ben reworked to accommodate a 12.3-inch digital dash and a 13.4-inch central touchscreen (higher trim levels only). The transmission tunnel and the gear selector are also different.
Speaking of trim levels, Denali Ultimate is the most deluxe on offer right now, with its exclusive exterior finish, 22-inch wheels, expensive trim materials, and power running boards.
A new off-road modification called the AT4X is also in the family now, bringing along new shock absorbers, 50 mm (2 inches) of extra ride height, underbody protection, off-road cruise control, and 18-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires. A 6.2-liter V8 drives a ten-speed automatic transmission with 426 PS (420 hp / 313 kW).
The old 4.3-liter V6 is no longer available at all, while the 2.7-liter four-pot has been modernized to produce 314 PS (310 hp / 231 kW) and 569 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque – an improvement of 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) over the previous generation.
The eight-speed automatic transmission has also been upgraded, while the 5.3-liter V8 good for 360 PS (355 hp / 265 kW) and the 3.0-liter diesel capable of 281 PS (277 hp / 207 kW) have stayed the same.
