General Motors pulled the sheets on the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 last October, revealing a long list of updates and changes for the pickup nameplate. Now, GM Authority is taking a look at GM’s recommended 2022 GMC Sierra Denali powertrain mix for dealers.
It should be noted that the following trim level mix is specific to inventory orders, or vehicles for in-store inventory, as opposed to sold orders. It should also be noted that the recommended mix is for the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali, and not for the new range-topping 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate.
The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra Denali is available withe three powertrain options, including the the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm.
With that covered, GM’s recommended 2022 GMC Sierra Denali powertrain mix is as follows:
- 5.3L V8 L84: 10 percent
- 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax: 30 percent
- 6.2L V8 L87: 60 percent
Elsewhere in the lineup, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is also available with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which produces 310 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and an uprated 430 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm.
In total, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is offered in eight different trim levels. GM Authority previously covered the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 recommended trim level mix for dealers, but for those readers who may have missed it, the trim with the highest recommended percentage is the Sierra SLT at 25 percent, followed by the Sierra Denali at 23 percent.
