The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra will come with the new GMC Pro Safety Package as standard, its contents being offered as optional equipment in the pre-refresh 2021 model-year Sierra 1500 and 2022 Sierra 1500 Limited.
This change means the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra will come with a long list of active safety content that was either optional equipment on the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, or not available at all. As our helpful chart embedded below indicates, the GMC Pro Safety Package, which carries the RPO code PDI, includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Braking, IntelliBeam headlights, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Buckle to Drive. These features will be standard on all Sierra trim levels – including the entry-level Pro work truck.
