Refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X: First Real-World Pictures18
The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 introduces a ton of new updates and changes to the Light Duty pickup, including two new trim levels, namely the new range-topping GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate, as well as the even-more-capable GMC Sierra AT4X. Now, we have our first look at the new Sierra AT4X out in the real world with the following photos.
With regard to the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 trim level cadence, the new Sierra AT4X slots in above the standard AT4 with a wealth of impressive rough-stuff equipment. Up front, the off-roader makes its presence known with a unique AT4X badge in the lower driver’s-side corner of the grille. The grille itself has several horizontal slats finished in gray, while lower in the fascia, we spot two red tow hooks, similar to the “standard” AT4.
In the corners, the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X rolls across terra firma thanks to a set 18-inch wheels, finished in black. The wheels are wrapped in 265/70R18 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Mud-Terrain tires. This particular model also appears to be equipped with a set of side steps.
As expected of an off-roader, the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X rides tall thanks to a jacked-up suspension spec. Highlights include Multimatic DSSV dampers, similar to the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Silverado ZR2. On the Sierra ZR2, these dampers are matched with unique springs, increasing maximum front suspension travel by 50mm and rear suspension travel by 25mm when compared to the “standard” Sierra AT4.
Out of sight is a unique steel transfer case skid plate, while the rear is equipped with the MultiPro Audio System by Kicker. It should also be noted that the standard AT4X will come with exhaust tips tucked up underneath the rear bumper, whereas this particular model has exposed exhaust tips.
Under the hood, the Sierra AT4X comes standard with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, which is rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed through a 10-speed automatic transmission. The drivetrain is also upgraded with front and rear e-locking differentials.
Pricing for the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X starts at $74,995. The first units of the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 are slated to arrive in dealers in Q1 of next year. Production for the refreshed pickup will take place at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana and the GM Silao plant in Mexico. The GM Oshawa plant in Canada will also produce the pickup once renovations are complete.

It’s like cool.. but not 74k cool. Especially with 32s
This truck should have had 33’s minimum. (preferably bigger) It doesn’t make much sense for the Silverado ZR2 to come standard with 33’s while the AT4X is still sporting 32’s. I like this truck, but from a visual standpoint it’s looks a little to similar to a regular AT4.
This puppy should have 44’s on it for class leading clearance!
No chips, no features, count me out.
Reserved one of these as soon as the reveal began. My (now former) dealer where I purchased my current Sierra informed me that I will be paying MSRP + AT LEAST 5K market adjustment…could be more depending on the state of the market when the truck arrives. So 80K…and now without heated/cooled seats and heated steering wheel…
That is ok, you can run down to the local Audi dealer and pick up a nice Q7 that will have all the luxuries you are looking for and handle anything you would need it to do.
Can I put a piece of plywood or a dirt bike in the back of that Q7?
Why didn’t they change the bumper like they did for the ZR2????
The AT4X seems a bit under baked. Yes it has the lockers and DSSV dampers but it doesn’t get a true high clearance front bumper. And the tires are smaller than the ZR2 which really is surprising.
No diesel,No sale!
Money grab truck and nothing else. Similar price range at least you get Hellcat bragging rights with the TRX
Looks really cool and all and I know it has a lot of off road capabilities but $72K is a bit too much. I think no more than $50,000-$60,000 would be more appropriate.
50 to 60 is a moderately optioned 4×4 Elevation or SLE now
GM should have offered the X package across the line, not just the AT4 – Nobody is going to go off-roading/thrashing in their $80k (after taxes) truck. The people who can afford this truck will never use it for its off-road capabilities. Who wants to go mudding and rock climbing in a luxury truck – that’s what Land Rovers are for.
My opinion on the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 trims:
Denali, At4, Elevation=ok
EVERYTHING=costs $5-$15K too much
All the brands now offer non top of line models with better looking exteriors or better optioned interiors bit not both. If you want both then open your wallet. Yesterday’s high line trims suck as LTZ or Laramie is now mid level with basic looking exteriors
I thought the rear exhaust was gonna go straight down and not have the rear ports under the bumper??.. which I do like on the standard trucks btw.
The real problem with this truck is an optioned raptor with 37s and the TRX with a hellcat under the hood are in the same price range…
