2022 GMC Sierra 1500 to be Revealed on October 21

GMC will unveil its 2022 Sierra on October 21

  • Cosmetic changes seem to be minor on the outside

  • The interior will be entirely new

  • The truck will be revealed on October 21 in an online event

GMC is getting ready to unveil its new 2022 Sierra 1500 in an online event that will take place on the 21st of October 2021.

This new truck has been seen driving around with camouflage, but from what can be seen, the exterior changes seem relatively minor.

Expected are new headlamps, a bigger grille and revised bumpers, among other smaller modifications.

Where there will be a lot of change is on the inside, which should be entirely new. This could help the truck have even more success since a common complaint against the previous model was that its interior felt somewhat dated when compared to the Ford and Ram pickups.

The new interior should benefit from a bigger touch screen as well as a digital gauge cluster. Features will include the usual range of active safety systems, but the top of the range Denali trim will be available with GM’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving technology.

Mechanically, the Sierra will lose two engines, its base 4.3L V6 and the popular 5.3L V8. No word yet on what will replace them, but we know the 2.7L turbocharged four-cylinder engine will gain 20% more torque than in the 2021 model.

The 3.0L Duramax inline-six diesel engine will also be back under the Sierra’s hood, and it will provide a 20% greater towing capacity than the current version.

A new trim will be added to the lineup, the AT4X, which will be off-road focused and serve as the GMC counterpart to the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2.
