The 2022-model-year refresh for the GMC Sierra 1500 introduces a wealth of changes and updates over the preceding 2021 model year and pre-refresh 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited. Among these is the addition of new rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers can detect when rain is falling, automatically activating to keep the windshield clear and providing the driver with an unobstructed view of the road ahead. The feature is a nice addition, adding both safety and convenience.
For the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, Rain-sensing windshield wipers are tagged with RPO code CE1, and are fitted as standard on SLT, AT4, AT4X, Denali and Denali Ultimate trim levels. The feature is unavailable on Pro, SLE, and Elevation trim levels.
General Motors unveiled the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 in October, pulling the sheets on a revised exterior with a new look for the front end, as GM Authority detailed previously. The model refresh also introduces a completely overhauled interior space with new infotainment gear highlighted by a 13.4-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as standard on SLE and above, plus GM’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise system as standard on the new GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate trim level. The model refresh also introduces the new AT4X off-roading trim level.
As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 offers four powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which now produces 420 pound-feet of torque, a 20-percent increase. The refreshed Sierra is also available with the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine and the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, as well as the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax.
