Americans love their pickup trucks, as evidenced by how many of them are rolling out of dealerships. The Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-Series and Ram pickups are the three top selling vehicles in the U.S., and the GMC Sierra isn’t far behind — so when the time comes for an update, it’s a pretty big deal.

When GM last redesigned their full-size pickups for 2019, we were impressed with their increased capability, improved powertrains and driving dynamics. But the one key area that still needed work was their interiors, which lagged behind the quality of competing models from Ford and Ram. For 2022, an extensive freshening has largely remedied that, with tremendous improvements in the GMC Sierra 1500’s cabin. The changes make it both more functional and a nicer place to be. Fit and finish are vastly improved, along with materials quality.
GMC made some other tweaks while they were at it, with updated styling, added tech features and a shuffling of trims. Overall, the results are impressive, making the Sierra 1500 a much more competitive option in a hotly contested market.
