The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 vs. the 2022 Toyota Tundra: A Comparison from LaFontaine Buick GMC of Dearborn

2022 GMC Sierra 1500

The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is one of the nation’s top-selling full-size pickups. It faces competition from several rivals, including the 2022 Toyota Tundra. Both are well-engineered and capable, but a head-to-head comparison confirms the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 as the superior truck.


Our new GMC truck sets a solid baseline for safety tech. Every trim comes with GMC Pro Safety, a suite that includes forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and lane-change alert.

But where the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 sets itself apart from competitors like the 2022 Toyota Tundra is its available Super Cruise technology. This landmark innovation allows for semi-autonomous driving in certain situations, even while towing.

Automatic lane-change is also included. Super Cruise is a class-exclusive feature that rivals such as the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 don’t come close to matching.


Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 offers a whopping four engine choices. By comparison, the 2022 Toyota Tundra offers just two. Moreover, the 2022 Toyota Tundra doesn’t have a V8 engine option, whereas the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 boasts a pair of stalwart V8 power plants.

Visit our GMC dealership and you can test drive a 5.3-liter V8 that outputs 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 6.2-liter V8 engine rated at 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, three transmissions are available for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, compared to just one for the Toyota Tundra.

New Trims

The all-new 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate infuses a never-before-seen level of luxury in a full-size truck. GMC financing for this gem brings platinum-level amenities such as leather seats and door panels, 16-way power front seats with massage, and a 15-inch head-up display.

Meanwhile, the all-new 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X is an off-roader’s dream, boasting one-pedal rock crawling and special spool-valve Multimatic shocks. By contrast, the Toyota Tundra model’s comparable trims are nicely appointed, but simply don’t approach the levels of luxury and performance promised by the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500’s stunning new models.
