The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 will no longer be offered with two exterior paint colors that were offered on the pickup for the 2022 model year, GM Authority has learned.
For 2023, the following two colors will be dropped from the GMC Sierra’s order books (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Cayenne Red Tintcoat (GSK)
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
The Silver Ice Metallic was a premium exterior color, adding $425 to the truck’s price tag, and was available on all trim Sierra trim levels. Meanwhile, the Cayenne Red exterior color added an extra $645 to the truck’s price tag and was available on the Elevation, SLT, AT4, AT4 and Denali trim levels only. That means it was not offered on the Pro, SLE and Denali Ultimate trim levels.
As we reported in May, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is currently unavailable to order in Cayenne Red and will likely not return to the truck before production of the 2022 model year ends. That means the timeframe to get a GMC Sierra 1500 in Cayenne Red has come and gone, but thankfully GM has three new exterior colors coming to the Sierra for 2023. These will include the following:
- Deep Bronze Metallic (GXN)
- Sterling Metallic (GXD)
- Volcanic Red Tintcoat (GNT)
Photos of the 2023 GMC Sierra in these three new exterior colors are not available at this time.
The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is offered with a total of four powertrains. This includes the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
