4 Reasons to Consider the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500

September 30th, 2022 by


The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is a highly capable and versatile pickup truck. GMC recently updated the light-duty pickup with a new exterior and interior. The 2022 Sierra 1500 is also set to receive a new diesel engine. Despite GMC’s increased focus on electrification, the automaker has still shown careful attention to its combustion engine lineup. With so many positives, we thought we’d key in on four reasons why consumers should consider the 2022 Sierra 1500. 

1) Engine Options



The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 arrives with several powerful engine choices. These include a 2.7L turbocharged high-output, a 5.3L V8, a 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel, and a 6.2L V8 engine. With so many options the Sierra 1500 provides drivers with a range of versatility. GMC is set to release an all-new diesel engine, but the current 3.0 Duramax turbo diesel offers 277 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. The light-duty pickup offers an impressive 13,200 pounds of towing capacity and 2,240 pounds of payload.

Other engine options include a 2.7L high-output which delivers 310 horsepower and 430lb-ft of torque. There’s also a 5.3L V8 that offers 355 horsepower and 383lb-ft of torque and a 6.2 V8 that provides 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. All of these engines except the 2.7L engine pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

2) Chevy Super Cruise

Another reason to consider the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is Chevy Super Cruise. This system is Chevy’s hands-free driving assist feature. It’s simple to use and can be used on roads across the country. Drivers can adjust their distance between cars in front of them and they can also adjust the speed with the steering wheel. The driver assist feature will also automatically change lanes. Drivers must still pay attention to the road ahead, however. The system will disengage itself if it finds that drivers are not keeping their eyes on the road. It allows three strikes before disengaging. 

3) 14 Camera Views



The Sierra 1500 offers an easy-to-use camera system with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen. Drivers have easy access to a clear view of several viewpoints including around the truck bed, the trailer hitch, or what’s around the tires. Equipped with 14 different camera views, the driver assist feature makes handling the light-duty pickup truck easy. Drivers will be able to clearly see any obstacles or vehicles around them.

4) MultiPro Tailgate

The fourth reason to consider the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is its MultiPro tailgate. The tailgate offers ease and convenience with corner steps on the rear bumper. Owners can also turn the tailgate into a step with a rail to hold on to. The tailgate also holds 375 pounds and can be extended. A smooth surface can also be folded out. The last great feature is that the tailgate comes with a built-in speaker system in the midgate.
