The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 introduces a long list of changes and upgrades over the pre-refresh 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited, including revised exterior styling. Now, we’re checking out the restyled 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation in Summit White paint with the following GM Authority photo gallery.
For those readers who may be unaware, the Elevation is the mid-range trim level in the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 lineup, slotting in between the SLE and SLT trims. Up front, we spot a simple black grille treatment for the revised front fascia, with the reshaped headlamps bracketing the grille with C-shaped signature lighting. The lower fascia is also done in black, while a pair of black tow hooks are mounted lower in the bumper. Also notable is the black GMC emblem on the nose, which is paired with a black GMC emblem in the rear. The two black emblems are offered for an extra $205, and are tagged with RPO code SFZ.
Moving over to the sides, we see this 2022 GMC Sierra Elevation rides on the standard 20-inch Black gloss painted aluminum wheels, with a split-spoke design and red GMC badging for the center caps. The side view also reveals the Crew Cab / Short Box body style, while black molding stretches up and around the wheel wells, and around the side windows as well.
This particular vehicle is equipped with Preferred Package, as indicated by the perimeter lighting and power-sliding rear window, which is priced at $1,980 and tagged with RPO code PDQ. Lower in the body, we see 6-inch Black rectangular assist steps, priced at $795 and tagged with RPO code RVQ. The inclusion of the 6-inch Black rectangular assist steps and black GM badging may indicate the presence of the Elevation Black Package (RPO code PDF, priced at $1,175).
Finally, in the rear, we see the black GMC badge centrally placed in the tailgate and an Elevation badge in the lower right-hand corner. This particular model is fitted with the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, priced at $1,595 and capable of producing 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.
