The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra debuts a long list of updates and changes for the pickup nameplate, including the reintroduction of the Regular Cab, Standard box body configuration for the U.S.
According to GM Authority sources, General Motors will once again offer the GMC Sierra in a Regular Cab, Standard Box configuration for U.S. buyers. At the moment, the GMC Sierra Regular Cab is only offered in the U.S. with the Long Box configuration.
To note, the Standard Box (or “mid-length” box) is 79.44 inches long and is available on the Crew Cab and the Double Cab body styles. The Short Box is 69.92 inches long, and is only available on the Crew Cab body style. The Long Box, which is currently only offered on Regular Cab models, is 98.2 inches long. It’s expected that the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra Regular Cab will only be available with the base-model Sierra Pro trim level, as is presently the case with the 2022 Sierra 1500 Limited.
As GM Authority reported previously, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado, which could be considered the “corporate cousin” to the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra, will also be offered in the U.S. in a Regular Cab, Standard Box body variant.
As covered previously, the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 broke cover late last month with new exterior styling, an overhauled cabin space, powertrain updates and two new trim levels, namely the new Sierra AT4X off-roader, as well as the new range-topping Sierra Denali Ultimate.
Engine options include the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine as standard, now producing 20 percent more torque for a maximum of 420 pound-feet. Horsepower is rated at 310 ponies. Further engine options include the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84, and naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87. Under the skin is the GM T1 platform. Production is set to take place at the GM Silao plant in Mexico and GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, followed by the GM Oshawa plant in Canada following the completion of renovations. The first units of the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 will arrive in dealers in Q1 of next year.
