High-Class and High-Tech - The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500
In the world of light-duty full-size pickup trucks, there are few that offer the engine variety and cutting-edge tech present in the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500.
What's New for 2022
The GMC Sierra 1500 received a substantial makeover for the 2022 model year. The exterior benefitted from a more striking front-end design, but the real changes were done to the interior to make it a more luxury-level truck. Every model now features a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In addition, higher quality materials were added throughout the revised styling.
Models and Pricing
Starting at $50,748, the 2022 GMC Sierra is available in Ottawa and across Canada in five trim levels: SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, and Denali. The Elevation offers the best middle ground between price and luxury features, but the AT4 is the truck to get for drivers that crave serious off-road capability.
Starting at $66,348, the AT4 model offers a distinctive exterior design and athletic interior, as well as features such as a two-inch factory-installed suspension lift, six-function MultiPro tailgate, mud terrain-rated tires, and more.
The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 offers performance for everyone. With four different engines, two different transmissions, and rear- or all-wheel drive, drivers can customise the truck to fit their needs. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.7-litre four-cylinder that delivers 310 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque and pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The AT4 model comes standard with a 3.0-litre Duramax Turbo Diesel engine that delivers 460 lb-ft of torque, though it can also be built with a 6.2-litre V8 with 10-speed automatic transmission that delivers 420 horsepower. There is also a 355-hp 5.3-litre V8 engine available.
Designed with the driver in mind, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 offers a cabin environment filled with technology to keep drivers connected and make driving safer. Most 1500 models feature a 13.4-inch touchscreen that controls the intuitive infotainment system. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The system also includes built-in Google software that allows users to access a voice assistant, app store, and maps.
In terms of safety, the Sierra 1500 offers a host of driver-assistance technology to help drivers feel confident and safe on the road. This includes standard features such as forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
