Production of the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 takes place at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, as well as the GM Silao plant in Mexico. This particular 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate, produced at the Fort Wayne facility, draws motivation from the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, which is rated 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm, but the range-topper can also be had with the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both powerplants mate to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, with four-wheel drive equipped as standard.
Naturally, as the range-topper of the lineup, the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate is loaded to the gills with standard equipment, and as such, doesn’t offer much by way of optional upgrades. Highlight standard equipment includes a Carbon Fiber Composite Bed (RPO code E3Z), the GMC MultiPro Tailgate (RPO code QK2) with the MultiPro Audio System by Kicker (RPO code PDV), and the rearward articulating GMC MultiPro Power Steps (RPO code BRS).
The exterior is covered in Titanium Rush Metallic paint, a premium option that costs an additional $495. This handsome exterior color is complemented by a host of unique exterior trim bits, including the standard GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate signature Denali Vader chrome grille treatment and Vader Chrome GMC badging. In the corners are the standard 22-inch low-gloss black aluminum wheels with machined accents, an exclusive wheel specific to the range-topping trim.
Pricing for this 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate is listed at $84,190, including destination freight charge and before options. However, as GM Authority covered previously, reservations for the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate are currently full.
