2014 LTZ Z71 crew standard bed owner considering new 2022 Denali Limited


Recommended Posts

so there it is I’m thinking about a trade in to a 2022 Denali Limited 6.2l(which in reality it appears to be a 2021 Denali Ultimate).  Are the die hard K2 fans going to try to convince me not to?  Are there any major problems with the new line?  Should I wait for the 2022 Denali Ultimate to be released and cough up another 10G’s?
Thanks in advance for your helpful insights. 

 

BTW: what I makes it a K2 and what’s the 2022 Denali limited and 2022 Denali Ultimate designations?

2019+current and until the actual next generation, they are T1XX.  K2XX was 2014-2018 and the 2019 old body trucks.

 

2021 and current 2022 are the same truck.  2022 refresh (2022.5 if you will), all Denali get the new upgraded interiors.

 

Denali gets the interior they showed off in the Silverado, Denali Ultimate and AT4X get the Yukon styled second interior option.  There is also upgraded Bose 12 speaker with Centerpoint, open pore wood, etc.    

 

Denali Ultimate is currently an option package, for 2022.5 its a trim level. 

 

Limited is just what all the 2022 old body Sierras are called.  Sierra Limited.

 

Biggest issues with T1 is rear window leaks and a rash of AFM/DFM lifter failures, mostly caused during a bad production batch of parts.  A 2022 Limited would technically be out of that rash window, yet there are still some popping up.

2014 - 2019 K2. There is a carryover K2 in 19 that is called LD (looks the same as the 14-18), and also the new for 2019 T1, which is the current models (2019 - 2022).

So I gather from what you said that you believe both the window leaks and the lifter problems have been resolved in any of the present 2022 models?

Eh.  There's been a couple 2022's leaking in the Facebook groups.  GM's bulletin covers 19-21 yet they still seem to do it.  Lifters, jury is out IMO.

So is the K2 and T1 one more of a chassis  Differentiation?

 

 

Yes.  Its how they call the chassis now.  It used to be GMT-****** so like 88-98 was GMT-400, 99-07 was GMT-800, 07-13 was GMT-900.

 

"Technically" K2 is actually GMT-K2XX and T1 is GMT1XX but they don't call them that in the service manuals and other GM documents.  Its K2XX and T1XX.  The XX has actual digits that go in those places so for example:

 

GMT1RC - Silverado regular cab
GMT1EC - Silverado double cab
GMT1CC - Silverado crew cab

GMT1HC - Silverado HD

 

For GMC, replace the last "C" with "G" so GMT1RG is Sierra regular cab, etc.

Or, I think I heard, just disable the AFM?

Start coughing.

I'd wait for the refreshed 2022 Denali if you have deep enough pockets. 

Interior is way nicer.

They go into production Late February early March.

You won't see them until April at the earliest.

They will be at least 5 grand over sticker my prediction.

I really appreciate everyone’s advice here. I’d rather not wait 3-4 more months and pay 5k over sticker so I’m leaning towards this(again it seems to be a 2021 Denali ultimate) no carbon pro. No kicker speakers. But every other option I can think of that’s available :


they’re giving me these 3 options for a bed cover:

On my 2014 silverado standard bed I had a semi-ridged folding top that worked fairly well didn’t leak much but it wasn’t very sturdy.
