New GMC 2022 GMC Sierra for Sale in Johnston, RI


On top of its well-established status as a hardwearing half-ton pickup truck, the GMC Sierra 1500 will roll into model year 2022 exuding more luxury, higher-end features, and greater capabilities than ever before. Highlighting the latest Sierra are its two new trim levels: Denali Ultimate and AT4X. The Denali Ultimate will channel a level of refinement not yet seen in this model, while the AT4X will deliver an uncompromising off-road experience with its trail-hungry ruggedness. Several other changes have been made to the ’22 Sierra 1500 as well. These include a refreshed exterior and interior style, a stronger implementation of the latest industry technologies, an improved engine lineup, and most notably, the inclusion of GM’s groundbreaking Super Cruise hands-free driving system.

Trims and Mechanical Basics

The previously standard 4.3-liter V6 has been set aside in favor of an upgraded version of GM’s turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder as the base engine. While this turbo powerplant continues to produce 310 hp, its torque output has rocketed from 348 lb.-ft. to 420 lb.-ft. Every other engine from the previous lineup carries over unchanged. Those include a 5.3-liter V8 (355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque), a 6.2-liter V8 (420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque), and a 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel (277 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque). A Sierra with the 2.7-liter turbo can tow up to 9,400 pounds, while those with the 5.3-liter V8 can pull a maximum 11,200 lb. The 6.2-liter V8 and the 3.0-liter Duramax reach their towing limit at 13,000 lb.

Two New Trims

While the Sierra 1500 will carry over the Pro, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, and Denali trims for 2022, the two new levels – AT4X and Denali Ultimate – are big news. While the AT4 was already considered a venerable off-road warrior, the AT4X takes its trailblazing status to a whole new level. The AT4X outdoes last year’s AT4 with Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers, special springs that increase maximum front and rear suspension travel, a two-speed transfer case with a Terrain Mode that allows for one-pedal rock crawling, electronically locking front and rear differentials, off-road chassis and suspension calibration, a larger transfer-case skid plate, and 18-inch wheels with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Mud-Terrain tires.

As brawny as the AT4X is, its interior is undeniably sophisticated with its dark ash-wood trim, class-leading 16-way power-adjustable front seats with massage feature, microfiber suede headliner, 15-inch head-up display, power sunroof, power-sliding rear window, and 12-speaker Bose sound system. Then there’s the Denali Ultimate: the peak of luxury. While it omits the AT4X’s off-road components, many of the deluxe interior features carry over. The Denali Ultimate will also come with a segment-exclusive CarbonPro composite cargo bed, GM’s six-way MultiPro tailgate, a Denali Premium Suspension with segment-first Adaptive Ride Control, power assist steps, hulking 22-inch wheels, a black chrome grille, and a full-grain leather interior with open-pore wood trim.

Revamped Exterior and Interior

The upcoming ’22 Sierra 1500 makes elegance a top priority across the entire lineup. The exterior now features a revised front bumper, fascia, and grille design, and the new dual-projector LED headlights have a more prominent design. And as a truly unique element, an animated lighting sequence will activate when the vehicle is started or someone holding the key fob approaches or walks away from it. The interior gets a brand-new infotainment system with a customizable 13.4-inch touchscreen and built-in Google, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a new center console design, all-new electronic precision shift on models with front bucket seats, and a new Elevation Premium Package that bundles a black leather interior with bucket seats, rear seat storage, a spray-on bedliner, and the Sierra Safety Plus Package.

Advanced Safety and Technology

GM’s innovative Super Cruise system will be standard in the Denali Ultimate. It’s the first-ever truly hands-free driving system that can be used on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads in the U.S. and Canada. What’s more, Super Cruise helps bolster the Sierra 1500’s already class-leading lineup of trailering technologies, which contains a 14-angle camera system, a Transparent Trailering mode, GCW Alert (alerts the driver when the maximum weight the Sierra can accommodate is exceeded), and an in-vehicle trailering app. The ’22 Sierra 1500 will get the GMC Pro Safety suite as standard fare, too. It comes with forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian detection, lane change alert with side blind-zone alert, a following distance indicator, and automatic high beams.
