If you’re a General Motors performance and pickup truck fan, it’s been an exciting few weeks. From the debut of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2, to the teaser photo of the 2023 Corvette Z06, to first impressions of the Hummer EV, there’s plenty to cover. And with the C8 Z06 debuting on October 26, there’s plenty to cover still. To sweeten things up even more, another big reveal, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, debuts October 21.

2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Changes And Updates Likely To Reflect 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

MC&T will be on-hand to get a first look at the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, which is expected to have the same sort up updates as the recently revealed 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. That means improvements to its base engine, now a 2.7L turbocharged four cylinder from a pushrod 4.3L V6, as well as a 20 percent towing improvement for its 3.0L LM2 Duramax diesel engine.

The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is also expected to feature a major interior overhaul, highlighted by a digital instrument cluster, a larger infotainment screen, and improved materials on higher end SLT and Denali models. As a capstone, the new Sierra is confirmed to have Super Cruise. However, with the recent omission of the feature in the 2022 model year Cadillac Escalade due to supply constraints, it’s unclear what will happen at this time.

Finally, the new GMC Sierra 1500 is expected to elevate its off-road capabilities with the introduction of a new AT4X trim level. Expected to have the same hardware as the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2, the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X could be a more refined take on off-roading, with a more buttoned-down exterior design. MC&T was first to report on the upcoming AT4X last July.

Like the 2022 Silverado, the 2022 Sierra is expected to launch in the first quarter of next year, by way of Fort Wayne, Indiana and Silao, Mexico.
