The fully refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 introduces a long list of changes and upgrades over the pre-refresh 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited and 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, one of the most noteworthy of which is the return of the Regular Cab / Standard Bed body style. Now, we’re checking out this customized 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab / Standard Bed that’s hitting the streets with a lowered stance and new aftermarket wheels.
Prior to the 2022 model-year refresh, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab / Standard Bed was offered in other markets, including Mexico and the Middle East, but not the U.S. or Canada. Now, however, the Regular Cab / Standard Bed has returned to these latter markets. And that’s great news for those customizers looking to build a sporty street truck like the example featured here.
The builders started with the base-level 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Pro, which is the only trim available in the Regular Cab / Standard Bed body style here in the U.S. From there, the customizers added a set of wheels from Cosmis Racing USA, specifically the five-spoke XT-005R rollers finished in Gun Metal with machined lip.
The new wheels look great, but the truck needed a drop to achieve the proper stance. Enter a new IHC Suspension kit, which sits the 2022 GMC Sierra neatly over the five-spoke wheels to achieve a sporty, street truck aesthetic.
The end result looks dramatically different from the factory vehicle, with a clean, straightforward combination of silvers and black that enhances the short, stubby lines of the Regular Cab / Standard Bed body style. Indeed, it’s kind of wild just how much of a difference wheels and a drop can make.
No word on whether or not anything was done under the hood. From the factory, the 2022 GMC Sierra Pro Regular Cab / Standard Bed is equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
