The upcoming 2022 GMC Sierra HD is getting further refreshments. This impressive and robust truck offers everything you need. It is a very capable performer and it also offers plenty of luxury. The design is very modern and attractive and the interior is both spacious and premium. Ride quality is great so it is a complete package in our opinion. Last year model arrived with a redesign, so we don’t expect major upgrades.
Thanks to that, the 2022 Sierra HD will introduce minor changes only. On the other hand, GM’s brand-new Super Cruise control will become available in the Sierra 1500 pickup. We don’t know if the Sierra HD will gain the same system, but it is a possibility. Under the hood, Sierra offers potent V8 gasoline and diesel engine options.
2022 Sierra HD Facelift
The exterior of the 2022 GMC Sierra HD will get minor cosmetic upgrades only. As we said, General Motors recently introduced a redesign. Thanks to that, the 2022MY will mostly remain. Sierra HD is a robust truck but it wears a very premium and modern styling. Most of the cues are taken from the Sierra 1500 pickup.
The front fascia is perhaps the finest example, with the sturdy front grille and fresh LED headlights. The headlamps are slightly enlarged and Sierra HD will wear new 18-inch wheels. Generally, the heavy-duty lineup will look more stylish with small updates. As before, there will be a lot of trim levels and upper trims are offering a real luxury.
Interior is Very Competitive
The interior of the 2022 GMC Sierra HD is very impressive and unique. The cabin is premium and the comfort is great. However, the changes on the inside are minor. GM will introduce some technology updates, but that’s about it. However, the Super Cruise system could be a true refreshment. The arriving Sierra 1500 pickup will offer this system for the first time and Sierra HD could follow the same path. However, this is not confirmed yet.
Both 2500 and 3500 HD variants are equally impressive in terms of interior room. You can choose between various cab layouts and trim levels. All models will offer the same 7-inch touchscreen as standard but you can buy an optional 8-inch display as well. The infotainment system is up to date and Sierra will introduce the newest driver-assistance features as well. The rest of the cabin will remain intact.
Sierra HD Offers Both Gasoline and Diesel Engines
The forthcoming 2022 GMC Sierra HD will offer the same powertrain lineup as its predecessor. The lineup includes a 6.6-liter V8 gasoline engine that provides 400 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. A 6.6-liter V8 turbodiesel is optional and it is a much better choice. It comes with better fuel efficiency and higher torque ratings. Diesel is capable of producing 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque.
Right now, Sierra HD equipped with a diesel powertrain can tow 24,000 pounds. We don’t know if the diesel engine will gain more torque in the near future. As before, GM offers a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission, and the gasoline engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
2022 GMC Sierra HD Price, Release Date
This heavy-duty lineup will hit the dealerships in the last quarter of 2021. The price won’t change so this model starts at around $38,000 once again. On the other hand, the famous Denali trim level will cost around $60,000.
