The updated 2022 version of GMC’s full-size pickup debuts the new Denali Ultimate and ATX4 trims, each with a different customer in mind.
The Denali Ultimate is fully-loaded with features like a CarbonPro composite bed; MultiPro configurable tailgate; the hands-free Super Cruise highway driving system; a computer-controlled suspension; 一个 420 hp 6.2-liter V8; and it’s wrapped in high-tend materials including full-grain leather and open-pore wood embossed and engraved with topographical maps of Denali, 阿拉斯加州. Priced at $ 80,395, the only option is a switch to the Sierra’s 277 hp 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six-cylinder diesel engine that’s rated at 460 lb-ft of torque, just like the V8.
The AT4X is GMC’s version of the new high performance off-road Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 and pairs the 6.2-liter V8 with a long travel suspension, unique springs and a set of Multimatic DSSV shock absorbers, which adjust their stiffness depending on their position and the speed they are compressing or expanding at. This allows them to combine a well-mannered ride on pavement with the ability to handle high speeds and jumps on rough roads. 的 $ 74,995 AT4X is also equipped with full underbody protection, a two-speed transfer case and front and rear electronic locking differentials for maximum rock crawling traction.
The Sierra is also available in a full range of models below the Denali Ultimate and AT4X, starting with the entry-level $ 32,496 Sierra Pro work truck. Along with the 6.2-liter V8 and diesel, the engine lineup includes a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 310 hp和 420 lb-ft of torque, which comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the latest version of the Sierra’s tried and true 355 hp 5.3-liter V8 that gets a 10-speed automatic shared with the 6.2-liter and diesel. The Sierra’s top tow rating with the diesel is now 13,200 pounds for two-wheel-drive trucks and 13,000 pounds for four-wheel-drive trucks fitted with the maximum towing package.
Changes found across the range include a redesigned interior with a new dashboard, console-mounted shifter, and digital instrument cluster; a 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Google built-in, Amazon Alexa and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; plus Super Cruise on the Denali, which offers supervised hands-and-foot-free operation on over 200,000 miles of mapped roads, even while pulling a trailer.
