The all-new 2022 GMC Sierra 3500HD will continue with improvements. This is a very robust truck that gets the job done. On top of that, it comes with a certain level of luxury so ride quality and comfort are great. General Motors redesigned the complete Sierra HD lineup last year. Thanks to that, we don’t expect significant upgrades for 2022MY.
Generally, Sierra offers impressive styling and great performances. There will be two potent V8 engines once again, so both gasoline and diesel variants are available. The sales will begin later this year and here is everything you need to know about the new Sierra 3500HD truck.
2022 Sierra 3500HD Gets Mid-Cycle Facelift
The forthcoming 2022 GMC Sierra 3500HD will gain minor visual upgrades. This truck will continue to offer a robust appearance combined with an aggressive exterior design. As before, most of the truck is based on the smaller Sierra 1500 pickup. The front fascia looks truly amazing with its sturdy grille and modern LED headlights.
The headlights are slightly larger than before and GM will offer new 18-inch wheels. Thanks to that, this heavy-duty truck will look even more stylish and modern. GMC offers plenty of trim levels, including the Black Diamond Edition. This edition comes with 20-inch high gloss aluminum wheels, power-adjustable features, an LED perimeter lighting system, and much more.
On the inside, the new 2022 GMC Sierra 3500HD will gain slightly more refreshments. Again, changes are far from dramatic, but some updates are a must. You can choose both two-seat and three-seat variant with an eight-foot bed. This bed provides an impressive 83.5 cubic feet of the cargo area. Still, double cab configuration provides five or six seats and a nine-inch bed with 69.5 cubic feet of volume. The crew cab Sierra 3500HD is the most popular option and it provides impressive rear legroom.
All models are available with a standard seven-inch touchscreen. However, you can upgrade it to an eight-inch unit. The updated infotainment system is in the offer once again and we expect to see more driver-assistance features as well. Lastly, the Denali trim level is once again the range-topping model that offers a lot of luxury.
Gasoline and Diesel Engine Specs
The upcoming 2022 GMC Sierra 3500HD once again offers the same gasoline and diesel engine options. A 6.6-liter gasoline V8 is the standard powertrain choice with 400 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. However, the optional 6.6-liter V8 turbodiesel is the real deal. This powertrain provides 445 horsepower and an impressive 910 lb-ft of torque.
If you want the real heavy-duty work truck, the diesel engine is a must as it can tow up to 24,000 pounds. And while diesel engine comes with a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission, gasoline offers a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
2022 GMC Sierra 3500HD Price, Release Date
The price of the new 2022 GMC Sierra 3500HD will start at around $38,500. It is a small jump in price as the number of updates is limited. Denali trim level is available for $60,000 but fully equipped Sierra Denali costs over $70,000. As before, this truck will rival Ford F-350 Super Duty and Ram 3500 and Chevy Silverado 3500HD models.
