For the new model year, the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 is set to introduce a select few updates over the preceding 2023 model year and the fully refreshed 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that one 22-inch wheel option is currently unavailable to order.
Sources familiar with the matter tell GM Authority that the 22-inch Bright Chrome multi-spoke wheels, LPO (RPO code SSW) are unavailable to be ordered for the time being. As an LPO option, these 22-inchers are installed at the dealership, meaning that equipped units are shipped with temporary transit wheels.
For those who missed it, here’s a rundown on what’s new for the 2024 model year. GMC Sierra 1500 units configured in the off-roading AT4X trim level can now be optioned with the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine. Previously, the AT4X trim was only available with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine.
Additionally, Denali, Denali Ultimate, AT4, AT4X, and SLT trims are now available with an active exhaust system. Offered exclusively with the aforementioned 6.2L L87 engine, the new active exhaust includes built-in flaps that produce a throatier exhaust note on demand.
What’s more, a new set of power-retractable assist steps are now available. While pricing figures have yet to be released, this convenience feature will be offered on Denali, Denali Ultimate, AT4, and AT4X trim levels.
As a reminder, the 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 will be available with a slew of engine options, including the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B TurboMax 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 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 305 horsepower and 495 pound-feet of torque.
Under the skin, the Sierra 1500 rides on the GM T1 platform. Production of the 2024 Sierra 1500 is currently scheduled to kick off on July 17th, 2023 at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana and GM Silao plant in Mexico.
