The 2022 Sierra 1500 4WD Crew Cab AT4X is a robust and capable truck that offers a blend of ruggedness and refined features. With its impressive towing and payload capabilities, advanced technology, and luxurious interior, it has gained popularity among truck enthusiasts. My week with the GMC Sierra was full of fun and adventure. The versatility of this truck turned me into a big fan of GMC trucks. Check out some of the cool pics and all the details of my week.


My test vehicle was in exterior color of Onyx Black. Even though it may absorb a little more heat in the AZ sun, it makes it look as tough as it is.

The Sierra 1500 AT4X has a commanding presence on the road with its muscular and aggressive design. The truck features a bold front grille, LED headlights, and a prominent hood scoop that enhances its rugged aesthetic. The aggressive stance is further accentuated by 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, all-terrain tires, and exclusive AT4 exterior badging. Additional exterior features include a spray-on bed liner, LED cargo box lighting, and a MultiPro Tailgate with six different functions for easy access and cargo management.
