Performance Leader
The 2022 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty offers both power and versatility in its performance, with multiple engine and transmission options. The Sierra comes standard equipped with an impressive 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that nets 401 horsepower and 464-lb-ft of torque. The gas V8 engine is also paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

In addition to the gas V8, the Sierra HD also comes with an available 6.6-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel V8 engine, which generates an even more impressive 445 horsepower and 910-lb-ft of torque. The diesel V8 also comes with an Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission.

If you’re looking to see just how far you can go with the 2022 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty’s performance, there’s also the available X31 off-road package. The package comes with various off-road performance features, including Twin-Tube Rancho® shocks, Eaton® automatic locking rear differential, off-road suspension system, underbody, skid plates, and more.

Ultra-Powered Towing
The new Sierra HD wouldn’t be an HD pickup if it didn’t have the ability to tow like a beast, and the 2022 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty fulfills that in spades. With an incredible 24,000 lbs with just the standard box, as well as up to 16,530 lbs with a conventional, gooseneck, or fifth wheel hitch. In addition, the maximum payload comes in at 4,365 lbs with the standard box, and 6,610 lbs with the crew cabin long box.

The Sierra HD’s turbo-diesel engine turns up the heat even further, with an enhanced towing capacity of up to 40,000 lbs (31,180 lbs with a hitch). The turbo-diesel engine’s maximum payload is also better than ever, coming in at 4,185 lbs (5,607 lbs with the long box).

Allowing you to go even further, the Sierra HD AT4 and Denali offer several additional performance improvements. An independent front suspension offers additional stability and handling, while the live-axle suspension improves payload management.
