Watch this 2022 Tundra vs 2022 Sierra video to find out. Also, see what exterior and interior features he prefers on each. Watch as he drives them both on and off-road, and stick around to the end to hear the answer to the question: “Which truck does Tim prefer?”

2022 Tundra vs 2022 Sierra: Which is better for off-roading?

It’s hard to pick just a few of the differences, but there are some things I would care about if I was shopping for a truck I might take off-roading. The first thing Esterdahl pointed out was the difference in the shocks and lift on these trucks. The GMC Sierra AT4 has a slight lift and slightly larger tires. These add up to extra ground clearance for the Sierra. The tow hooks are another thing to consider. The GMC has them, the Toyota does not. When in trouble, things like this matter.

The 2022 Tundra has four-wheel drive and a locking rear differential, but these are both turned on manually, as needed whereas the 2022 Sierra AT4’s are both automatic which means you don’t have to think about when to turn them on.

Exterior notes

We all know the Tundra Esterdahl bought doesn’t have a built-in bed step. That’s something he’ll have to add himself. But, the GMC Sierra has a step built into the bumper to make it easy to get into the bed. It also has speakers in the MultiPro tailgate.

GMC’s Carbon Pro bed is comparable to the composite bed in the Tundra. Neither will rust, dent, break or ding. When wet the Tundra’s composite bed can be a little slick, but the Sierra’s won’t be.

Features that are unique

The Tundra’s back window rolls all the way down. No split glass with a tiny sliding window like the GMC.

The Sierra sports a leaf spring suspension kit. The Tundra offers a brand-new coil spring suspension for a much smoother ride.

You can get the Sierra with a 3-liter diesel engine. This is not an option on the Tundra. For many, this may be the deciding factor when buying one of these trucks.

Let us know, after you watch this 2022 Tundra vs 2022 Sierra comparison video, which features you would consider must-haves. Be sure to pay attention to the payload and towing limits, Esterdahl’s notes about seat comfort, and his advice about which 2022 Sierra to wait for if you’re in the market for a GMC truck.
