GMC, a brand of General Motors Co. in Detroit, has announced the 2022 Sierra will feature all-new technologies, including trailering-capable Super Cruise.

“Sierra’s momentum continues to accelerate as the fastest growing model in the segment,” says Duncan Aldred, global vice president of GMC and Buick. “With the 2022 Sierra, GMC is offering customers more advanced technologies, upscale appointments, and increased capability across the Sierra lineup including the all-new Sierra Denali Ultimate and AT4X.”

The lineup is led by the new Sierra Denali Ultimate trim, the most advanced Denali model to-date. Accompanying this trim is the Sierra AT4X, an off-road edition of the truck with performance upgrades.

The Denali Ultimate trim features exterior styling cues, along with exclusive interior trim and features along with more standard equipment — including trailering-capable Super Cruise and a segment-exclusive CarbonPro composite cargo box.

On the outside, the trim package has a unique grille in Vader chrome, along with 22-inch wheels finished in Low Gloss Black with machined accents, a Vader chrome GMC logo, and unique front fender featuring Mount Denali. It will also have GMC’s six-way MultiPro tailgate, Denali Premium Suspension with Adaptive Ride Control, and power assist steps standard.

The all-new Sierra AT4X continues GMC’s efforts to break ground in the premium truck category. The company aimed to build a truck with off-road capability without sacrificing on-road comfort, tech, towing, and payload capabilities.

Features of this model include:

  • Standard 6.2 liter V-8 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission.
  • Unique Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers.
  • Unique springs that, with the Multimatic dampers, increase maximum front and rear suspension travel by 50 mm and 25 mm, respectively, compared with the standard AT4 suspension.
  • Two-speed transfer case with selectable modes for different off-road conditions — including Terrain Mode, which allows one-pedal rock crawling.
  • Front and rear e-locking differentials.
  • Specific off-road chassis and suspension calibrations.
  • Unique, larger steel transfer case shield.
  • 18-inch black wheels with LT265/70R18 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Mud-Terrain tires.
  • Available rocker guard accessory.

The base 2022 Sierra includes a new exterior and interior design with enhanced technology integration, including a large, 13.4-inch touchscreen with Google built-in compatibility.

The refreshed exterior features a new grille and revised headlamp design along with lighting animations when approaching, starting, or walking away from the vehicle. The includes a cockpit-oriented instrument panel along with a new, more functional center console with electronic precision shift on models with front bucket seats.

A new 2.7-liter Turbo High-Output engine offers greater refinement, performance, and enhanced trailering capability. Maximum trailering ratings of 9,600 pounds with two-wheel drive models and 9,300 pounds with four-wheel drive models are achieved with the new engine.

Super Cruise comes standard on the Denali Ultimate with a three-year subscription. It is the first true hand-free driver-assistance technology for compatible roads, which cover more than 200,000 miles of U.S. and Canadian roadways.

Trailer-capable Super Cruise adds to the truck’s roster of trailering assistance technologies, which also includes up to 14 camera views, and in-vehicle trailering app, and more. The new GCW Alert will signal when maximum weight the Sierra can safely carry is exceeded.
