2022 GMC Sierra 1500 to Receive New Trims: Denali Ultimate & AT4X

May 20th, 2022 by


The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 will be receiving two new trims: the Denali Ultimate and the AT4X. The full-size pickup recently received a new refresh which included updates to its exterior and interior. Now GM is providing the 2022 Sierra 1500 with a luxurious Denali Ultimate trim as well as a powerful off-road AT4X trim. As of late, GM has been updating its lineup with new improvements and updates. The automaker has also been working on its electric vehicles like the Chevy Silverado EV and Chevy Equinox EV. It’s clear GM wants to stay ahead of the game with powerful trims and EVs. For now, we’ll take a look at the new Sierra 1500 trims and see what they have to offer.

2022 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate

The 2022 Sierra 1500 will be getting a luxurious Denali Ultimate trim. This new trim will start at an MSRP of $82,795 (plus destination fee) and will feature a rich leather upholstery. The full-size pickup will also feature a microsuede headliner and wood trimming etched into a topographical map of Mount Denali. Owners of the lavish pickup will note a horizontal dash layout with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster as well as a 13.4-inch touchscreen. There’s also a 12-speaker Bose audio system.

The 2022 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate features a reshaped front fascia that solidifies its status as a luxury pickup. For the engine, Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate comes equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 engine that’s capable of 420 horsepower. There’s also the option for a Duramax diesel 3.0L inline-six engine that features 460lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2022 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate handles well and features precise steering. With standard adaptive dampers, drivers can better control the truck’s body motions. For fuel economy, the 6.2L gets a combined 17 mpg while the 3.0L diesel gets 24 mpg. 

2022 Sierra 1500 AT4X

The other 2022 Sierra 1500 trim is the all-new AT4X. Like the Denali Ultimate, the AT4X improves the Sierra’s exterior and interior. The AT4X however offers more robustness and versatility as an off-road pickup. It features underbody protection, multimatic spool-valve dampers, and electronic locking front and rear differentials. It also has improved suspension. Starting at an MSRP of $77,395 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Sierra 1500 AT4X offers drivers a highly capable pickup that can take on the toughest of terrain. 

The Sierra 1500 AT4X doesn’t feature a luxury interior like the Denali Ultimate, but it does offer more in terms of performance. The full-size pickup is only available with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 engine, but it serves its purpose. With DuraTrac mud-terrain tires and a 25.5-degree approach angle, the 2022 Sierra 1500 AT4X effortlessly takes on off-road terrain. The pickup also has several camera views that let owners see any obstacles or potential risks nearby. These new trims offer Sierra 1500 fans two bold options. Whether it’s luxury or capability, the 2022 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate and AT4X trims are here to provide it.
