General Motors unveiled the fully refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 last October, pulling the sheets on a long list of changes and upgrades for the light-duty pickup. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500’s power-folding trailering mirrors are currently unavailable to order.
The power-folding trailering mirrors are tagged with RPO code DQS, and it is currently unclear why the feature is unavailable to order. The full name of the feature in question is power-folding/manual-extending, power-adjustable vertical trailering mirrors with heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, turn signal indicators, puddle lamps, perimeter lighting, auxiliary lighting and memory.
Previously, the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra’s power-folding trailering mirrors were offered as an option for SLT, AT4, and Denali trim levels. Pricing was set at $260 option. The power-folding trailering mirrors were not offered on 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Pro, SLE, Elevation, AT4X, or Denali Ultimate trim levels.
To note, the 2022 GMC Sierra’s power-folding trailering mirrors are not to be confused with the manual-folding/extending, power-adjustable vertical trailering mirrors with heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, integrated turn signals, clearance lamps and auxiliary lighting, tagged with RPO code DPO. The manual-folding trailering mirrors are still available to order, and offered as optional on 2022 GMC Sierra Pro, SLE, and Elevation trim levels. The manual-folding mirrors are not offered on SLT, AT4, AT4X, Denali, or Denali Ultimate trims.
In short, refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT, AT4, and Denali trims are currently unavailable with trailering mirrors. Sierra AT4X and Denali Ultimate trims were already unavailable with trailering mirrors.
As a reminder, the fully refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is offered with four engine options, starting with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, recently uprated to 430 pound-feet of torque. Further engine options include the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. The GMC Sierra rides on the GM T1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Silao Plant in Mexico and GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana.
