The official online configurator for the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD is now live, giving fans and potential customers a chance to browse the various options and spec theirs to taste.
Updates over the preceding 2021 model year include deletion of the Oxford Brown Metallic exterior color, which is replaced with Greenstone Metallic instead. The 2022 model year also introduced new 20-inch Machined face aluminum wheels with high gloss Black accents and beadlock appearance, tagged with RPO code SQ9 and offered as an LPO-level item (that is, installed by dealer, rather than at the factory when the vehicle is originally produced). The new 20-inch wheels are not available on Work Truck models.
Furthermore, the Multi-Flex tailgate feature is now available on all models.
Additional features include a new 10-way power driver’s seat for the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD Custom trim level, which is tagged with RPO code A2X and is offered as an available option. Previously, the 10-way power driver’s seat was unavailable on Custom trim levels, but was offered as optional on 2021 Chevy Silverado HD LT trims. The feature was also standard on 2021 Silverado HD LTZ and High Country trim levels. Availability for LT, LTZ, and High Country trims remains the same going forward with the 2022 model year.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD offers limited availability for the Heated Second Row Outboard Seats option. Tagged with RPO code KA6, the Heated Second Row Outboard Seats are offered as part of the LTZ Convenience Package, and come as standard on High Country trims. However, due to the ongoing global microchip shortage, some units of the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD that would normally equip the feature no longer have it.
