2022 GMC Sierra: 5 practical features it has, missing on the 2022 Tundra


No matter how in love you are with the pickup truck in your driveway, there is always a feature or two you wish your truck had. For me, that’s memory seats. For Publisher Tim Esterdahl, it’s quite a list inspired by the 2022 GMC Sierra.

The 2022 GMC Sierra has a bed step built into the bumper

Yes, Esterdahl’s 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited now has a bed step, but he had to order it and install it himself. And while it is helpful, the position of the step isn’t as handy as the built-in step on the 2022 GMC Sierra. Pay attention, automakers, built-in steps are really appreciated. Added to that, the Sierra’s MultiPro Tailgate provides a whole host of options for easy entry to the bed and loading/unloading of cargo.

Flat load floors

This is probably the one I identify with the most. I cannot stand second rows with humps in the middle of the floor. I don’t care if it’s a truck, SUV or car. Those humps reduce legroom and make loading and unloading large items a real pain. The 2022 Tundra has a hump. The 2022 GMC Sierra does not.

Automatic cooled seats – another win for the 2022 GMC Sierra

When you remote start your truck, does it automatically sense it’s hot outside and turn on the ventilated seats? The 2022 Sierra can do that, thanks to some pretty smart software.

Ok, there are more than 5 features

As you watch this video you’ll pick up on a few extra things, from visibility out the front window to hand-holds on the sides of the bed. But there are also some pretty big wins for the Tundra including arm rests on the doors, a panoramic moonroof and a really nice center console.

We’re curious which truck you’d pick, and if you could mix and match the features, which would be on your list?
