The recent announcement of the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 included a number of noteworthy changes and updates for the pickup, including the addition of the new Multi-Flex tailgate, which operates exactly like the MultiPro tailgate offered on the GMC Sierra, and the addition of the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B engine option for Regular Cab Long Box models. Now, however, we’re looking to the future with the 2022 Chevy Silverado refresh, which was recently spotted undergoing some real-world testing.
This particular model is the Regular Cab, which appears to be in Work Truck trim. Outside, we see that the door handles and sideview mirror caps are finished in black, while the wheels are the 17-inch Bright Silver painted aluminum rollers (RPO code Q5U) currently offered as an available option on the Work Truck, and equipped as standard on the LT trim level.
The upcoming 2022 Chevy Silverado refresh is slated to usher in a significant refresh, as GM Authority reported previously. That includes a redesigned front fascia, which can be seen on this prototype model covered up in heavy camouflage. This regular cab model also comes equipped with placeholder headlamps, similar to the 2022 GMC Sierra pickup prototype we covered yesterday.
Further updates include new front fenders, a redesigned box and rear end, and new tail lamps.
Although the 2022 Chevy Silverado refresh will include a good number of exterior updates, the biggest changes will be found in the cabin space, where the pickup will adopt an interior layout similar to that of the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 Chevy Suburban SUVs. Some critics have pointed to the interior design of the fourth-generation Silverado 1500, first introduced for the 2019 model year, as a point of weakness, and the upcoming 2022 Chevy Silverado looks as though it will address the issue.
