Is the GMC Sierra all new for 2022?

Yes and no. 2022 will bring a newly designed truck, mainly with a completely redesigned interior, but until that release later in 2022, the current 2022 Limited is a rollover from 2021. The 2021 does offer some new features. The trailer assistance has several new or enhancement features. The Sierra’s Multipro tailgate now offers a wider availability and more paint options.

What are the interior features of the GMC Sierra 1500 Limited Denali?

The Sierra cabin isn’t overdone. It’s simple and straightforward. It provides an upright center stack with user-friendly functionality. Good storage space throughout, head-up display, heated and ventilated front buckets. The cabin in general is practical and spacious. I’m also a fan of the camera rearview “mirror”. Extremely high definition and wide-angle, allowing you to get a clear understanding of your surroundings.

A touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability is standard. Likewise, every model offers a mobile hotspot for Wi-Fi on the go. Other available infotainment features include a Bose audio system, built-in navigation, wireless charging for phones, and additional power points.

How does the GMC Sierra 1500 Limited Denali?

I have two perspectives to answer this question:

As a fairly tall, family man, Although it’s a pickup truck, it might as well be an SUV. It has the looks, tech, comfort, and smoothness of a family oriented SUV. The versatility it offers is exactly what differentiates this truck. It’s an excellent fit for any individual that truly relies on a truck to get whatever the job is done.

As a car enthusiast, I personally feel like it meets my expectations of a car enthusiast. Powerful naturally aspirated 6.2L V8, 22″ high gloss black wheels, dual exhaust, Kicker speaker audio entertainment in the tailgate, good looks, and luxury qualities. It’s driving a truck with no compromise.

Final thoughts

Competition is certainly strong in what seems to be a growing segment. The bold looks, comfort and price point is what differentiates this truck. Some of the most classic trucks on the road today are GMC’s.
