Late last month, GM Authority brought you an analysis of the revised front fascia and headlights on the upcoming 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500. Now, we’re taking another look at the refreshed pickup’s headlamps thanks to a recent batch of spy photos which capture the production lighting setup.
This particular prototype model is a 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT, and shows heavy camouflage and padding across the front end. However, underneath all those covers, we still spot a few noteworthy design updates.
For starters, the headlights look as though they are simpler and cleaner with the upcoming 2022 model year refresh, moving away from the current three-tiered setup in favor of a new two-tiered setup. Rather than an upper lighting strip, C-shaped middle lighting element, and thin lower lighting strip like the current model year vehicle, this 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT prototype appears to have a larger lighting element up top, plus an LED lighting signature below that will also serve as the turn signal. The upper lighting element also looks to include larger, blockier inner design elements than the current pickup.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will arrive with further styling differences in the front fascia, as well as a completely overhauled cockpit complemented by a larger center infotainment readout, the deletion of the column-mounted shifter on certain models, and improved materials as well. Under the skin, the 2022 Silverado will utilize the GM Global B electrical architecture, which will enable the truck to offer GM’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system as an available option for High Country trims.
