The 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 is not going to bring any key changes, since there were a lot of modifications to the current vehicle. Now, with the AT4 off-road model and interesting features, such as the Multi-Pro tailgate, the Sierra 2500 is at the same level as Ram and Ford series 2 HD trucks.
The base price of the 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 stays put. However, the cost range can vary, depending on the options. And there are a lot of those. You can start building the truck with the cab and bed configurations, then move to the engine choice, and finally end up with trim levels, colors, and additional packages. It seems to be quite a job. So, the MSRP can be anywhere between $36,500 and $85,000.
Why we love the GMC trucks? Like you can see from the price, it is a bit higher than the base Ram 2500 or Ford F-250. But, you are getting more features and upscale materials. Now, Sierra 2500 is equipped with an AT4 all-terrain package. The downside is a lack of dual-rear-wheel configuration, that maximizes towing capacity to 36,000 pounds on the Sierra 3500.
Our recommendations are a diesel engine, a mid-range trim level, and a Crew Cab. If you are a fan of off-roading, the AT4 is there. If you want a premium truck, the Sierra 2500 Denali is a perfect choice.
GMC fans and owners of the new versions of Sierra are probably used to the new drivetrain lineup. We saw a switch recently in the petrol spot, where a 6.6-liter unit replaced an old V8. Now, the new powerplant can put out 400 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. Still, the towing capacity is not at the peak. To do that, you will need a diesel unit. A 6.6-liter Duramax can put out 445 hp and 910 lb-ft. Expect the torque to stay put for the 2022 GMC Sierra 2500, while the Sierra 3500 might get a version with more than 1,000 lb-ft. Well, GM needs to stay competitive against Ram and Ford trucks. This one will be a class leader with 36,000 pounds of towing capacity. The setup requires a dual-rear-wheel system, which is not offered for the Sierra 2500.
2022 GMC Sierra 2500 AT4 and Denali Models
Those two are the highlight of the lineup. The AT4 is a new model and brings upgrades that will enhance off-road drive. Special suspension, shocks, and brakes provide maximum comfort. On the other hand, skidplates will protect the underbody. Of course, unique details will make sure you won’t miss this model.
The 2022 GMC Sierra 2500 Denali is a top pf the class vehicle. It is like a home on wheels. A set of 20-inch wheels is dominating the exterior. Inside, 8-inch cluster and 8-inch infotainment screen are at the center of the dashboard. Driver is getting a lot of help with a new trailer-view camera system. Wireless charger and navigation are standard. Bose delivers an audio system with seven speakers. The Multi-Pro tailgate is a feature with six functions. Atop of all, there are parking sensors, which are optional for all other packages.
