The 2022 GMC Sierra HD recently received a small price increase across the board. Going forward, the 2022 GMC Sierra HD will be $500 more expensive no matter what trim level, body style, powertrain or drive layout is chosen.
Again, this applies to all trim levels, from the base Sierra Pro, to the mid-grade SLT, range-topping Denali and all trims in between. This change also applies to both the GMC Sierra 2500HD as well as the GMC Sierra 3500HD.
As we reported previously, GM also applied a similar price increase to the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD lineup recently. The Silverado HD is now $300 to $700 more expensive than before, depending on the trim level and powertrain chosen.
It’s not clear why the prices of the 2022 GMC Sierra HD and Chevy Silverado HD have risen, although GM’s full-size trucks have been in short supply throughout 2021 due to production setbacks related to the semiconductor chip shortage and parts shortages stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
GM applied minor changes and updates to the 2022 GMC Sierra HD, which represents the third model year of the fourth-generation Sierra HD. Some of these revisions include the addition of a new exterior color, Forest Green Metallic, a renaming of the base Sierra HD trim level, which is now called the Sierra Pro, and the addition of a new 20-inch machined-face aluminum wheel, which features high gloss Black accents and a beadlock appearance. The 2022 model-year GMC Sierra HD will also drop two previously available exterior colors from its palette: Brownstone Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic.
Two engines are offered in the 2022 GMC Sierra HD, including the naturally aspirated 6.6L L8T gasoline V8, and the 6.6L L5P V8 turbo-diesel Duramax. The gas V8 pairs with a GM 6L90 six-speed automatic, while the diesel engine links up to an Allison-branded 10-speed automatic.
