If you visit a dealership like the Spruce Pine Chevrolet dealer, you may see the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited on the showroom floor. If you’re wondering why there are two versions of the Sierra 1500 for 2022, we’ll explain. Due to supply chain issues, GM wanted to ensure there would be an adequate supply for buyers, so it released the Limited version. This model is essentially a rebranding of the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 with some minor changes.
The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited is a full-size pickup with the same familiar styling and spacious interior as the 2021 model. Customers of the Spruce Pine Chevy dealer tell us they appreciate the Sierra 1500 Limited’s large bed capacity. Buyers who want a luxurious driving experience can choose the top-line Denali trim, which features premium amenities.
The GMC Sierra 1500 Limited is exceptionally versatile. You can get it in a configuration to meet your specific needs, including a powerful work truck, a tow truck, a tough off-road machine, and a comfortable daily driver. A choice of four potent engines makes the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 even more rewarding.
CNET writes: “Having gone through a redesign in 2019, the exterior is probably the freshest part of the 2022 GMC Sierra Limited. It’s an attractive truck, with headlights and a grille that aren’t cartoonishly large, in addition to just the right amount of body sculpting that gives it a burly look without being too over-the-top.”
The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited is available in six trims: Pro, SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4 and Denali. Three cab styles are available: Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab. Buyers can choose one of three cargo bed sizes.
Four engines are on offer:
Turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine good for 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque, teamed to an eight-speed automatic gearbox
5.3-liter V8 making 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, coupled to an eight- or 10-speed automatic
6.2-liter V8 developing 420 hp and 460 lb-ft, matched to a ten-speed automatic
3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel inline-six engine generating 277 hp and 460 lb-ft, mated to a ten-speed automatic
Standard features for the base Pro trim include 17-inch painted silver wheels, a four-way manual-adjust seat, LED headlights, a tilt-only steering wheel, manual windows, a six-speaker audio system (Double Cab and Crew Cab models), a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and two USB ports.
At the top of the lineup, the Denali trim comes with 20-inch wheels, a two-speed transfer case (for four-wheel-drive models), an adaptive suspension, ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, side steps, a power-sliding rear window, a digital instrument cluster, a Bose premium stereo setup, and a wireless phone charger. Standard safety features include a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and parking sensors.
The Sierra 1500 Limited’s ProGrade trailering system makes it easy to tow a trailer. It uses an assortment of cameras, parking brake assist, an integrated trailer brake controller, and available tow mirrors. This cutting-edge setup can display up to 15 different camera angles. An optional interior camera can even show the driver the trailer's interior.
