The upcoming 2022 Chevy Silverado refresh will introduce a range of changes and updates over the preceding 2021 model year, and now, we’re getting an early sneak peek with these spy photos capturing a 2022 Silverado LTZ undergoing testing on public roads.
Up front, we see the refreshed 2022 Silverado’s front fascia covered in heavy camouflage hiding the upcoming model’s revised styling elements. As GM Authority has covered in the past, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado will delete the somewhat controversial “sideburn” air curtains seen on the current model. Silverado fans eager to see the new front end prior to the debut can do so by checking out GM Authority’s previous coverage of a leaked design image that reveals the new pickup’s fascia.
Also notable in these new spy photos are the 2022 Silverado prototype’s wheels. These particular rollers appear to have a new open-five-spoke design that fans out from a rounded center, with multiple styling elements adding some flair to the look. The new 2022 Chevy Silverado wheel design includes chrome accents that work well with the polished bits seen elsewhere on the body, such as the door handles and the window trim.
Pulling back, we also sot black tape covering up the lower body panels in the flanks, suggesting that the 2022 Chevy Silverado LTZ will also come with some sort of new trim detailing along the lower edges of the doors.
In addition to new styling and new wheel designs, the refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 will also boast a completely overhauled cabin space, including a new dash, center stack, center console, infotainment screen, and a new digital gauge cluster. What’s more, the usual column gear shifter will be replaced with a new electronic gear selector.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado follows the 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited, the latter of which serves as a stop-gap model between the pre-refresh 2021 Chevy Silverado, and the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado. As such, the 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited offers many of the same features as the previous 2021 model year.
The fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado is slated to make its grand entrance next month on September 9th at 4 p.m. EST, as revealed by GM Authority earlier this month.
