The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 lineup was revealed last week, which included the introduction of the new AT4X trim level, as well as the luxurious Denali Ultimate trim. There’s a lot to talk about with the new truck, but GMC only had one minute to wow viewers of the NFL Thursday Night Football game on October 21st between the Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos. So it was all distilled into focusing on GM’s killer app: Super Cruise. In the ad spot below, 2022 Sierra Denali drivers engage the self-driving technology, go hands-free and join in on rocking out to the legendary arena ballad “We Will Rock You” from rock music legends Queen.
There are plenty of can’t-miss features that you don’t see in the commercial, like the 15 cameras placed around the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, or the six-way MultiPro Tailgate in the back. For new Sierra customers, this truck has surprises around every corner, under every lid, and in every cubby hole.
The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 engine family also gets more streamlined, and more capable than it was before. The base engine is now the 2.7L L3B turbo that sees a power increase to 420 lb-ft of torque. Up from that is the 383 horsepower 5.3L L84 V8, which will make up the bulk of the fleet, and the a 6.2L L87 V8 at the top end of the gasoline engine range. For more fuel economy, the 3.0L LM2 Duramax turbo-diesel makes a comeback, now with improved towing capacities. The standard automatic transmission is now an 8-speed, with upper-tier engines like the L87 and LM2 getting a 10-speed.

Without a doubt, connectivity is always a concern in this day and age, and of course, GMC has you covered. Available wireless charging on select models.
