If the job at hand demands more than a light-duty pickup is designed to be capable of, there’s no problem admitting you’ll need to look beyond the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited. But if a light-duty truck is what you need, then the Sierra 1500 Limited certainly checks all boxes and then some. The top contenders in the segment have to take capability, flexibility, and versatility for granted, but what sets the Sierra 1500 Limited apart from the crowd is it can also rival luxury sedans and SUVs in the areas of comfort, luxury, and technology. With an incredibly extensive number of configuration options, the Sierra can fulfill just about any role you have for a truck in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove, Beaumont, and Leduc, Alberta.
Buyers currently have six 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited trim levels to choose from in the current lineup, with the most affordable version now being called the Limited Pro. From that base model, the range then goes to the SLE, Elevation, SLT, AT4, and finally to the Denali, which is in a class of its own when it comes to pickup truck luxury and style. Of course, you also have to choose from Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab body styles and standard, short and long bed lengths, and then you have the various drivetrains, transmissions, colours, interiors, wheels, engines, upgrade and appearance packages and the list of the available options.
As far as engines are concerned, the Sierra 1500 Limited family offers a choice of four, and the excellent 2.7-litre turbo-four is no longer an upgrade as it’s now the standard unit. This now means the base engine in the lineup provides the truck with 310 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, which is pretty impressive, to say the least, for the entry-level powerplant.
If a more traditional V-8 is more your style the next unit in the range is a 5.3-litre V-8 that has 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque to offer. And if that’s still not to your liking there’s also the opportunity to upgrade further with a 6.2-litre V-8 that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. The impressive quartet of powerplants is rounded off by an available 3.0-litre inline-six turbodiesel that develops 277 horsepower and a very tow-friendly 460 lb.-ft. of torque. The diesel allows the Sierra to tow as much as possible with the 6.2-litre V-8 under its hood, which is a maximum of 5,897 kg (13,000 pounds) after a 1,814 kg (4,000-pound) increase as a result of chassis updates and a larger rear differential.
The Sierra’s standard air conditioning has now been dropped in favour of an upgrade to a more advanced climate-control system in base versions of the Sierra 1500 Limited, but just about any feature you can think of for a pickup truck is either standard or available for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited. Range-topping Denali models continue to set the bar high for style, opulence, and the highest levels of standard equipment in the half-ton truck segment, but even a Denali can be further enhanced if you want it to be. The Denali Reserve Package that was previously called Denali Ultimate, is a good way to do just that as it adds power steps, a power sunroof, a rear camera mirror, and adaptive cruise control to the top model’s already stellar list of standard equipment.
The most impressive comfort, luxury and connectivity features are all well and good, but a truck is designed to do a job, first and foremost, so there are also loads of impressive practical features such as a world-first six-function Multi-Pro Tailgate and the industry-first use of carbon-fibre composite in the pickup beds.
A 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited can be any light-duty pickup truck you want it to be, but it’s the style, comfort, luxury, and presence that sets it apart from the other usual suspects in its class.
