Following the introduction of an all-new fourth generation for the 2019 model year, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is set to receive a refresh for the 2022 model year, which will include revised exterior styling and an updated interior. The upcoming refresh will also apply to the off-road-ready 2022 Silverado Trail Boss, a prototype of which was recently spotted on public roads undergoing a bit of real-world testing.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the 2022 Silverado Trail Boss out and about. Just last month, we saw the refreshed off-roader covered in heavy camo sporting a set of multi-colored wheels with a new six-spoke design. This latest prototype appears to have the same rollers.
Wrapped in aggressive Goodyear Wrangler rubber, these new wheels differ from those on the current Silverado Trail Boss, which offers 18-inch High gloss Black painted aluminum wheels (RPO code RD1) as standard, and 20-inch Black painted aluminum wheels (RPO code RD5) as an available option.
Further indications that this is indeed the 2022 Silverado Trail Boss include the elevated ride height and a set of red tow hooks low in the front fascia.
As GM Authority was the first to report, the latest Chevy Silverado comes with the Multi-Flex tailgate feature, which operates just like the MultiPro tailgate equipped on the Silverado’s corporate cousin, the GMC Sierra, with six different configurable positions to enhance the tailgate’s functionality.
Back in February, GM Authority was the first to report on interior updates slated for the 2022 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra. The upcoming interior enhancements will be focused primarily on mid- and high-end trim levels, although all models will likely benefit. The Silverado HD and Sierra HD will also follow suit with interior upgrades roughly a year after the Silverado and Sierra 1500 models.
