The refreshed 2022 Chevrolet Silverado is coming, and with it, an overhauled design for the pickup’s cabin space. We’ve already spotted prototypes of the up-and-coming Silverado out in the real world undergoing testing, revealing a few interesting tidbits about the truck, including the news that that the 2022 Silverado interior won’t come with a column shifter.
Although the prototypes seen thus far have come draped in heavy layers of camouflage, it appears as though the 2022 Silverado interior does indeed lack a shifting stalk on the steering column. This suggests that the 2022 Silverado interior instead comes with a push-button shifter layout, much like the all-new 2021 GMC Yukon.
While some Silverado fans will no doubt miss the old-school shifter stalk mounted to the steering column, the 2022 Silverado interior will drop in with a completely overhauled design that will address the perceived weak points of the vehicle.
In addition to moving over to a push-button shifter setup, the 2022 Silverado interior will also likely come with a larger, integrated infotainment screen, and Google Infotainment Services, as GM Authority covered previously. The addition of the Google Infotainment features will arrive as a replacement for existing General Motors infotainment features, likely offering things like Google Voice Assistant and Google Navigation.
What’s more, the overhauled 2022 Silverado interior also looks as though it offers GM’s Super Cruise technology in conjunction with towing duties. As a reminder, Super Cruise is a semi-autonomous driver assist feature that allows the driver to take their hands of the steering wheel during extended highway driving. The feature has not previously been used in conjunction with a vehicle that’s towing.
In addition to the overhauled 2022 Silverado interior and the fresh tech features mentioned above, the upcoming pickup will also debut with revised designs for the front and rear fascias.
