The fully refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 introduces a wealth of changes and updates for the light-duty pickup truck nameplate, including the debut of the brand-new, range-topping GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate trim level. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the new Sierra Denali Ultimate in White Frost Tricoat Paint with the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
White Frost Tricoat Paint is one of five exterior paint options available for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate, offered as an optional extra for an additional $1,095 and tagged with paint code G1W. The bright exterior paint provides a contrast for the darker detailing seen front to back, including the unique Vader Chrome grille treatment that dominates the front end. Further Vader Chrome bits are added for the front fender trim and and GMC logo. Also of note is the chrome finish for the recovery hooks in the lower bumper, tagged with RPO code VLQ.
Viewed from the profile, we find this 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate rolling on a set of 22-inch Midnight painted aluminum wheels with machining and bright Chrome Inserts. Tagged with RPO code SMR, these wheels add a nice complement to the dark trim and White Frost Tricoat Paint. Higher up in the body, we see further chrome for the sideview window surrounds, sideview mirror caps, Denali badge, and door handles.
Although it’s tricky to tell from afar, the rear of the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate includes the CarbonPro Carbon Fiber Composite Bed as standard. The rear GMC badge on the tailgate also has the same Vader Chrome finish as the badge up front.
Under the polish and gloss, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate offers the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine for the standard spec, although the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax is also offered as an optional upgrade. Providing the bones is the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Silao plant in Mexico and GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana.
