2022 GMC Sierra 1500 in Alliston, ON

The GMC Sierra 1500 has set the bar very high since it first rolled off the assembly line. When the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 goes on sale at Ernie Dean, the rest of the full-size pickup truck class will have a lot of catching up to do. GMC has redesigned the Sierra 1500 with more refined exterior elements and all-new more expressive interior design options. At the end of the day, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 will be among the most luxurious and technologically advanced full-size pickup trucks in the world.

Technology has always held an important place inside GMC trucks. The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is adding new trim grades for Ernie Dean customers to consider. Some of the top-end trims will be equipped with Super Cruise as well as a larger touchscreen interface with Google Built-In compatibility.

Cargo Bed & Tailgate

A pickup truck isn’t a pickup truck without a cargo bed. The cargo bed in the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 offers a couple of features that won’t be found with any of the competition.

  • MultiPro™ Tailgate: Flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to the 2022 Sierra 1500. The MultiPro tailgate offers six different configurations to help owners get the job done. Some of the different tailgate configurations include a standing desk, tailgate extension, a step, and a few more.
  • CarbonPro™ Cargo Bed: It may seem like a lot to use carbon fibre for a truck’s cargo bed. However, going this route helps protect the bed from scratches, punctures and other damage that can cause rust or corrosion.

Interior Design

Interior Comfort/Design Features

Performance & Capability

Engine Selection & Efficiency

Ernie Dean customers can choose from four engine options when they are equipping their 2022 GMC Sierra 1500. Base trims will use a turbocharged 2.7-litre, inline four-cylinder engine. Naturally aspirated 5.3- and 6.2-litre V-8 engines are also available. Both of the V-8 power plants are equipped with Dynamic Fuel Management to better balance performance and fuel efficiency.

Diesel Technology

Diesel engines are naturally more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. The turbocharged 3.0-litre, straight six-cylinder engine will make 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It is standard equipment on the AT4 trim grade and can be added to the Denali Ultimate, Denali, SLT, Elevation and SLE models.


Regardless of which version of the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 an Ernie Dean customer decides to take home, they will be getting one of the most robust towing platforms available. A 2022 GMC Sierra can tow more than 4,200 kg (9,400 lbs.) with the turbocharged 2.7-L engine, depending on how the truck is equipped. Buyers with the 5.3-L V-8 have a maximum towing capacity of more than 5,080 kg (11,200 lbs.); trucks employing the 6.2-L and turbo diesel power plant top out at 5,897 kg (13,000 lbs.) of towing capacity. The turbo diesel engine can pull as much as 5,987 kg (13,200 lbs.) when properly equipped.

GMC Pro Safety

Every 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 coming to the Ernie Dean showroom will be equipped with the GMC Pro Safety system. This suite of active safety systems is designed to work together to keep drivers aware of dangers around them.

  • Following Distance Indicator: Lets the driver know how large the gap (measured in seconds) is between their vehicle and traffic ahead. Drivers may be alerted if the system finds they are too close.
  • Lane Keep Assist: Combined with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist will let people know if the truck is drifting from their intended lane of travel on a properly marked highway.
  • Automatic Emergency Braking: The system will alert drivers that there is an upcoming obstacle. If it becomes necessary, the automatic braking system will apply the brakes without driver input at speeds below 80 km/h (50 mph).
  • Forward Collision Alert: Drivers will be alerted if they are in danger of colliding with something in front of their 2022 Sierra 1500 or if they are following too closely.
  • Front Pedestrian Braking: People can be unpredictable. This feature will help drivers avoid pedestrians by altering drivers to danger and even enhancing braking power.
  • Intellibeam Auto High Beams: The truck can automatically turn its high beams on and off based on the prevailing traffic conditions.

What’s New From the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500?
