In the world of more traditional, full-size pickups, GMC is making clear that’s it’s swinging for the fences when it comes to both buyer options and technical capability. The 2022 Sierra line of trucks’ biggest news is the offering of trailering-capable Super Cruise, which is the name General Motors applies to its autonomous-driving programming. Two new trim levels for 2022 are the aptly named Sierrra Denali Ultimate, which is the GMC on the right in the photo; along with the also-new Sierra AT4X, which is the other depicted rig, which is factory-accessorized for off-road action.
You want luxury? The cab interior of the Sierra Denali Ultimate has so much leather inside that it even wraps the dashboard, beyond the microsuede headliner. The standard front seats have power massaging and 16-way adjustment. A 12-speaker Bose audio system is also standard. So is a power glass sunroof. A 6.2-liter, 420-horsepower V-8 mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission is the base powertrain. To the same driveline, the Sierra AT4X adds unique springs, Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers and a two-speed transfer case. Both GMC pickups will also share Google built-in and a new, larger 13.4-inch diagonal touchscreen.
