The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 was introduced in October of last year, revealing a long list of updates and changes for the popular light-duty pickup truck. Now, GM Authority is revealing the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 recommended trim level mix for dealers.
To note, the recommended trim level mix is specific to inventory orders, that is, vehicles for in-store inventory, which is different from sold orders.
Looking over the recommended mix, it appears as though General Motors expects the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT to be the most to be the most popular trim level, making up a quarter of the total mix. The SLT trim is a mid-range model, and is equipped with a 13.4-inch diagonal center touchscreen and 12.3-inch diagonal Driver Information Center, offering 20-inch wheels and 10-way power-adjustable front bucket seats with leather, heating, and ventilation as optional.
Coming in at a close second is the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, making up 23 percent of the total mix. The Denali trim is equipped with a Signature Grille design with a polished chrome finish, as well as a wealth of high-end cabin features and options, such as Denali Premium suspension, plus authentic open-pore wood, brushed aluminum trim, and perforated leather upholstery.
Following the Denali with the third highest mix percentage is a tie between the GMC Sierra AT4 and GMC Sierra Elevation, both at 16 percent. The Elevation slots in around the lower end of the mid-range in the trim level lineup, equipped with a monochromatic exterior and black gloss grille, as well as unique 20-inch wheels. Meanwhile, the AT4 is equipped with a 2-inch suspension lift with Rancho monotube shocks, skid plates, an automatic locking rear differential, and a two-speed AutoTrac transfer case.
Interestingly, the two new trims, the AT4X and Denali Ultimate, make up 5 percent and 9 percent of the mix, respectively. Check out the complete trim level mix recommendation for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 right here:
