The upcoming 2022 GMC Sierra is a full-size truck that shares plenty of similarities with Chevy Silverado. Both models are amazing and more than competitive. New spy shots of the 2022 Sierra are showing the latest refreshments. However, not all of the details are visible. The biggest mystery is the interior. As you probably know, many reports suggested an interior revamp for GM’s Yukon and Sierra models.
It is something that both models need at the moment. However, we still don’t know what will happen with the interior design. On the other hand, the exterior design will look more modern, and it will wear interesting styling cues. The performance should remain, but some stories about the electrified powertrain are still present. New Sierra will hit the dealerships later in 2021.
2022 GMC Sierra Redesign
In terms of design, the new 2022 GMC Sierra will surely introduce a couple of upgrades. A redesign is not on the cards, so the mid-cycle refreshments are the most likely outcome. The latest spy photos are showing a blocky truck with an angular look. New Sierra comes with the same black plastic mesh grille. However, heavy camouflage perfectly hides the front section.
We are sure that GM will deliver more chrome accents and possibly refreshed headlights. Interestingly, the front fascia sports a large opening. Many experts believe it is a place for radar or camera to peek through. If that really happens, the 2022 Sierra will offer a Super Cruise control system.
The forthcoming 2022 GMC Sierra is still a mystery in terms of its cabin design. As we said, Sierra’s interior has been subject of various rumors. The stories are suggesting an interior redesign, and the same thing will happen to the GMC Yukon model. However, spy photos are not showing interior details. Sierra really needs improved interior design that will be closer to the Silverado truck.
That includes a new dashboard, new door panels, and instrument cluster. At this moment, Ford and Ram are offering far better interior. The arriving full-size Sierra will surely get some sort of updates. We just hope to see a cabin revamp. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait and see if the Sierra model will arrive with a redesigned interior.
2022 GMC Sierra Engine
The 2022 GMC Sierra should reach the dealerships with the same engine lineup. We really like what Sierra has to offer in terms of performances. From what we know, a 3.0-liter Duramax diesel engine will get better cooling, and it will get better towing capacity. Moreover, diesel powertrain already offers best-in-class fuel efficiency numbers.
Electrification is a possibility, but it seems like the 2022 Sierra won’t feature hybrid or all-electric setup. On the other hand, 4.3-liter V6 gasoline with 285 hp remains standard. A larger 5.3-liter V8 is optional, and it generates 355 horsepower. Lastly, a 6.2-liter V8 is the most powerful engine, and it delivers 420 horses.
Price and Release Date
The approaching 2022 GMC Sierra will now cost above $32,000. However, exact pricing details are not available yet. The range-topping trim level will start at $60,000 or possibly even more. The sales of the new Sierra full-size truck will begin in the second half of 2021.
