A hard-working fleet truck doesn’t have to be bare bones and something one would consider as “just enough.” A truck built to perform tough jobs every day can also be a pleasure to drive. And the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is proof of that fact.


The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is available with four different engines: an enhanced 2.7-L Turbo, a 5.3-L V8, a 3-L Duramax Turbo Diesel, and a 6.2-L V8. The 2.7-L Turbo offers 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque—that’s 20% more torque than the previous 2.7-L Turbo, all thanks to the engine’s enhancements. The 2.7-L gets up to 19 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. It features a max trailering of up to 9,400 lbs. The 5.3-L V8 pumps out 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on the Denali and SLT trims and available on Elevation, SLE, and Pro trims. Owners will get up to 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Tow a maximum of 11,200 lbs with the 5.3-L V8.

The 3-L Duramax Turbo Diesel offers 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on the AT4 and available on the Denali Ultimate, Denali, SLT, Elevation, and SLE trims. The diesel engine gets 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. It features a maximum towing capacity of up to 13,200 lbs. Finally, the 6.2-L V8 provides up to 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It’s standard on the Denali Ultimate and AT4X and available on the Denali, AT4, and SLT trims. It offers up to 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. It can tow a maximum of 13,000 lbs.

A 12.3-inch cluster display and 15-inch Head-up display keeps the driver informed.


New for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is the available Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology that allows owners to drive hands-free on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads in the US and Canada. A Super Cruise subscription is required to experience this technology; however, a three-year Super Cruise subscription is included with the purchase of a Sierra Denali Ultimate and Sierra Denali. Further, with built-in Google compatibility in the 2022 GMC Sierra, owners may be alerted of routes optimized for Super Cruise.

Not only does the Super Cruise system ensure the truck stays in its lane while driving hands-free, the system can also automatically change lanes when enabled to keep your cruise uninterrupted when encountering a slower traveler ahead.

In the new Sierra, owners can even go hands-free while trailering. The Super Cruise system adjusts calibrations for increased braking assistance and additional drag to ensure a safe, hands-free driving experience. 

Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate interior


In addition to the truck’s Super Cruise capability, the 2022 Sierra is also loaded with other technology features that elevate the ride for any driver. The GMC Sierra features an all-new 13.4-inch infotainment system that is standard on SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, Denali, and Denali Ultimate trims. This large screen allows a range of viewing combinations, configurability, and features. The driver cluster, or the Driver Information Center, in the 2022 Sierra is 12.3-inches big and standard on the same trims listed above. It also features many customizable options to display information according to the driver’s preferences.

If the 13.4-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch cluster weren’t enough to keep you informed, the 2022 GMC Sierra also features an available 15-inch Head-up Display that projects information low on the windshield. It also offers multiple page views to keep you in-the-know of what’s important.

Speaking of what’s important, knowing what’s around your vehicle and trailer is essential when navigating roads and lots. The new Sierra offers up to 14 different camera views to ensure drivers are always aware of their surroundings. These different views include HD Surround Vision, Rear Camera Mirror, and Bed View Camera to name a few.

The MultiPro tailgate is available on all trim levels, improving loading and unloading.


The ultimate driving experience for Sierra owners takes place in none other than the Sierra Denali Ultimate. In the Denali Ultimate, drivers get a premium interior that improves their ride and comfort—not to mention that luxurious feeling they’ll get behind the wheel. The Denali Ultimate features leather seating, embossed patterns of the Mt. Denali summit, and premium finishes such as Paldao wood and aluminum and chrome accents. On the outside, the Ultimate features a “Vader Chrome” grille and 22-inch black aluminum wheels.

But you don’t have to fork over thousands of dollars for the Denali Ultimate to get a truck with performance and comfort. The interior of the Sierra AT4 features leather seating and dark trim. The AT4 exterior features a 2-inch lift from the factory, mud-terrain tires, and the AT4’s signature red recovery hooks. The AT4X, offering the performance of the AT4 with more elegant features, includes red double-needle stitching, ceramic white accents, and leather-wrapped seats. Outside, the AT4X gets 18-inch black wheels, rocker protection, and AT4X badging.

For something a little more practical that doesn’t skimp on comfort, the SLT trim features 10-way power front seats with heated and ventilated leather appointments.

Finally, the Sierra Elevation trim features a cloth interior with a front 40/20/40 bench seat with a covered armrest and under-seat storage. Opt for front heated, leather-appointed bucket seats and techy features, such as wireless charging for mobile devices. The Elevation features a monochrome exterior with a glossy black grille.


With its multiple engine options, multiple trim options, and multiple options within those trims, there is a 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 for anyone and everyone. The truck’s performance capabilities speak for themselves, but it’s the interior options that owners can customize to their exact needs—and exact budget—that simply make the truck make sense among any fleet.
