Rugged, reliable, but also refined, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 isn’t just a truck perfectly crafted for the worksite. The 2022 Sierra 1500 can be luxuriously outfitted as well, making those long days on site that much more comfortable. In this modern day with light-duty pickups featuring near endless choices of trim levels, engines, interior comforts, and more, the reality is that if you’re in the market to buy a truck, surely there will be a perfect combination of features out there for your specific taste. Both power and capability represent a huge category, with 4 different engine options to choose from, including the powerful, yet efficient, Enhanced Turbo High-Output 2.7 L engine. The 2.7 L slots in as the Sierra 1500’s standard engine, with multiple degrees of power upgrades down the line. If you’re looking for a workhorse, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 can be an absolute beast, maxing out at 420 horses and 460 lb-ft of torque. However, that kind of power isn’t for everyone.
