The upcoming 2022 GMC Sierra was just spotted on the back of a flatbed truck draped in camouflage, giving us an early look at the refreshed pickup. Interestingly, the upcoming Sierra was caught alongside the GMC Hummer EV pickup.
Earlier this week, we brought you coverage of a GMC Hummer EV pickup undergoing some testing on public roads alongside the 2021 Chevy Tahoe, providing an interesting real-world comparison between the two vehicles beyond the usual batch of press materials.
Now, we’re getting a look at the upcoming 2022 GMC Sierra pickup. Once again, seeing these two vehicles side-by-side provides a good size comparison, demonstrating things like vehicle proportions, ground clearance, wheel and tire sizing, door sizes, and the like.
Dropping in as the fourth model year of the latest fifth-generation vehicle (introduced for the 2019 model year), the upcoming 2022 model year is expected to bring a host of changes for the GMC Sierra pickup. These include new styling with a revised front and rear fascia, as well as new exterior color options.
Based on the wheel design, this particular 2022 GMC Sierra appears to be the Elevation trim level, which is equipped with 20-inch open-spoke rollers with a black finish.
Inside, the 2022 GMC Sierra is expected to feature an all-new cockpit, with an overhauled dash, center stack, larger central infotainment screen, and new center console. The new interior is also expected to feature a revised gauge cluster, a new gear selector, and new interior storage options, plus the introduction of a larger sunroof/moonroof option.
Technology will also be cutting-edge, including the introduction of the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system with autonomous towing.
Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Sierra will carryover the same engine and transmission options as the current model year. Under the skin, the new Sierra will continue to ride on the GM T1 platform.
