The updated GMC Sierra 1500 pickup: luxury and off-road capability.

Following the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup, its more expensive counterpart GMC Sierra 1500 has also been updated.

Recall that in this generation, the Sierra has distanced itself from the Silverado like never before: almost all body panels are made original for the first time, and there are unique items among the options.

The restyling has only increased this difference: now the Sierra also has its own interior.

All trims except the base Pro now have a new front fascia.

It is dominated not by vertical, as before, but horizontal layout: the central ventilation deflectors stretched in width, blocks of keys and knobs are placed in rows, the media system — with a widescreen 13.4-inch screen (and built-in Google services).

The instruments are now virtual — on a 12.3-inch display.

A 15-inch projection screen and electric steering column are offered at extra cost.

The most expensive versions with separate front seats have a full central tunnel with gear selector, and the pickups with three-seat first row have the classic «poker» on the steering column.

On the outside, the Sierra has also changed. There are new headlights in the style of other GMC models (with animated turn signals), other bumpers and grille.

Options include a carbon fiber cargo bed (stronger and roomier than the base steel bed) and a MultiPro tailgate with integrated tilt section (with six possible configurations).

The basic 2.7 turbo 2.7 V6 is now with a stronger cylinder block and crankshaft.

Its power remains the same (314 hp), but the maximum torque is increased by 20% (up to 569 Nm!), and in addition the eight-speed «automatic» is recalibrated.

Atmospheric «eight» is untouched. The 5.3 liter engine develops 360 hp and 519 Nm, and the older 6.2 engine — 426 hp and 623 Nm.

In-line six-cylinder turbodiesel 3.0 engine (281 hp, 623 Nm) also remained unchanged, but the trucks equipped with it now have a reinforced frame, and therefore the weight of the towed trailer increased from 4.2 tons to 6 tons.

All three engines are combined with a ten-speed automatic.

At the top of the range is the new Denali Ultimate version, which is even more luxurious than the Denali.

This pickup has leather trim seats and front panel, wood veneer inserts with open pores, Bose audio system, 22-inch wheels, and black chrome decor.

The GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate is equipped with the most powerful V8 6.2 engine, and it’s also the first version to have Super Cruise, an adaptive cruise control with auto guidance while driving on the highway.

It is currently approved for operation on 320,000 kilometers of roads in the U.S. and Canada.

Also added to the range is the AT4X version, which is based on the existing AT4 modification, but has a more serious off-road preparation.

The main feature is a reinforced suspension with new springs and Multimatic DSSV shock absorbers, which have three chambers with separate valves, placed outside the body.

The stroke of the front suspension is increased by 50 mm, the rear suspension is increased by 25 mm, but the ground clearance is the same 276 mm as the AT4 version.

Other improvements include electronically controlled locking interwheel differentials, additional protection from the bottom and «crawling» off-road Terrain Mode system, which allows you to move «in one pedal».

The bumpers and tires, unlike the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 pickup, have not changed. The base engine is the most powerful V8 6.2.

The updated GMC Sierra 1500 pickups will go on sale in the first quarter of 2022.

As always, there will be a choice of single cab and two twin cab options.

Prices start at $32500 for the «working» Pro version. The new off-road AT4X variant costs from $75,000, and the Denali Ultimate will cost at least $80,000.
