We can only imagine the look on our grandpappy’s face if he peeped inside some of today’s fanciest full-size pickup trucks, which have become more and more like luxury vehicles, and that now includes the thoroughly redesigned 2022 GMC Sierra 1500.
For quite some time, the brand that has touted its top-of-the-line Denali models as some of the most luxurious in the biz has fallen short of those lofty expectations. Simply put, the Sierra Denali’s recent interiors haven’t looked as rich as those inside rivals such as top-tier Ram 1500s. GMC clearly recognized the disparity in quality and tech features, which are arguably the biggest changes to the ’22 Sierra, and they’re not limited to Denali trims.
The half-ton Sierra’s lineup has been rejiggered with a renamed base model (it now goes by Pro) and the addition of the AT4X and Denali Ultimate trims, which add even more features and nicer interiors to the regular AT4 and Denali they’re based on. Every 2022 Sierra 1500 enjoys a new-look front end, with fresh grille designs and an updated bumper. A pair of revised LED headlights with newly styled daytime running lights round out the changes. Some lights will also animate in different sequences when starting the truck or walking away and toward it.
