General Motors released a new teaser image this week revealing a small portion of the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali’s interior. Its purpose was to show off the updated pickup truck’s new digital gauge cluster and Super Cruise technology, but we also spotted a new infotainment screen hiding in the far corner of the photo.
Although the touchscreen itself is not visible in the teaser photo, the power button and the outer edge of the screen can be seen just behind the steering wheel. The current GMC Sierra 1500 does not have a button in this position, which confirms a new infotainment system will be among the updates in store for the updated 2022 model.
This screen does not appear to be the same one found in the 2021 GMC Yukon, as it does not have a power button mounted in this position. The Yukon comes standard with a 10.2-inch touchscreen that is mounted high up in the center of the dashboard, while the Yukon Denali’s unit is integrated into the center stack.
It’s important to remember that this teaser shows a range-topping 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali that likely has an abundance of available options, so this new mystery screen may not necessarily be standard equipment.
As we noted above, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali will offer Super Cruise as an available option. The version of the semi-autonomous technology offered on the truck will be able to work while towing. The 2022 model-year Sierra 1500 will also introduce some other minor changes, such as mildly revised exterior styling and various interior/cabin updates. It’s unclear when GM plans to reveal the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, but we plan to cover the truck extensively, so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more GMC Sierra news, GMC news and 24/7 GM news coverage.
