2022 Silverado 1500 Refresh Order Books To Open In December24
Order books for the refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 will open in December, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with the matter.
Production for the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2022, and we expect more details about ordering and pricing to become available in roughly a month.
In the interim, production of the “stop-gap” 2022 Silverado 1500 Limited will begin on October 4th at the GM Silao plant in Mexico and on October 11th at the GM Fort Wayne factory in Indiana. To note, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 differs from the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited, with the Limited model bridging the gap between the pre-refresh 2021 Silverado 1500 and refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500. The reason for the existence of the Limited model is that the refreshed Silverado 1500 was originally slated to arrive early in the 2022 model year. It was then delayed due to a variety of complications and delays stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a recap, the refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 pickup debuted on September 9th, introducing a long list of changes and updates over the preceding 2019, 2020 and 2021 model year, including an overhauled interior. This was perhaps the most anticipated update to the fourth-generation Chevy Silverado 1500 which was introduced for the 2019 model year. The new cabin can be found on LT trim, and higher.
The cabin now includes a 13.4-inch color touchscreen as standard on LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, High Country and the new-for-2022 ZR2. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is standard on all models equipped with the updated interior, as is a range of Google-powered infotainment features such as Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included.
Making the list of tech options is the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver-assist system. It will be optional on the range-topping Silverado High Country model. Notably, the 2022 Chevy Silverado will also offer trailering capabilities in conjunction with Super Cruise. Additionally, Chevy Safety Assist will be standard on all enhanced trim levels.
On the outside, the 2022 Silverado 1500 refresh features a revamped front fascia, including new headlights with animated walk-up and walk-away features along with swiping turn signals on certain trims. Three new exterior colors join the lineup, namely Dark Ash, Sand Dune, and Glacier Blue Metallic.
The 2022 Silverado 1500 refresh also introduces an updated engine, with enhancements to the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. The boosted four-cylinder, which becomes the standard engine on the Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, 2FL, and RST now features 20 percent more torque for a total of 420 pound-feet. Additionally, models equipped with the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine get an increase in towing capacity of up to 13,300 pounds.
The atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 and 6.2L V8 L87 remain unchanged, with the 5.3L delivering 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, while the 6.2L putting out 420 horses and 460 pound-feet.
More big news for the refreshed 2022 Silverado reveal is the introduction of the first-ever 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 as Chevy’s new flagship off-road offering to accompany the popular Silverado Trail Boss.
The new Silverado ZR2 features a high-approach steel front bumper with removable end caps, which gives the truck a more aggressive exterior appearance and enables a 31.8-degree approach angle. Other off-road-focused equipment includes 18-inch off-road alloy wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires and additional underbody skid plates.
Mechanically, the new Silverado ZR2 features front and rear e-lockers, a taller ride height, and Multimatic DSSV dampers. Finally, the exit area for the dual exhaust system has been relocated to be behind the rear wheels, reducing the chance that it will get dented or damaged when off-roading.
The only available engine option in the new Silverado ZR2 will be the aforementioned 6.2L V8 L87 engine mated to the standard GM 10-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. A new Terrain Mode setting, also standard, allows for one-pedal driving on trails, particularly useful when rock crawling.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is set to arrive at dealers in the spring of the 2022 calendar year.

I want a ZR2 in black as soon as I can! How can I go about ordering one! In black of course!
Lol Paul you go to a dealer that’s how. You probably shouldn’t be driving since you can’t even figure out how to order a vehicle. Please just take Uber.
All of this 2022 “Limited” and 2022 “refresh” confusion is over the BS government “CAFE” mandates. If GM kept building the 2021 model (which is what the “2022 Limited” is) “too many” 2021 trucks would have skewed the CAFE accounting and they would have been penalized. Same if they were to call the 2022 refresh a 2023 model – it would skew 2023 numbers because that production year would be too long.
It’s unbelievable how many hoops businesses have to jump through to stay on the right side of the government.
Things could change but the USA is nothing but punks it’s citizens let whatever happen to them and they do nothing about it.
Thanks for clearing up that very confusing article.
I think the real reason behind the “Limited” offering is chip delays. GM probably has a bunch of trucks waiting for chips. This is the smart way to deplete stock of the current model to make way for the real 22 model.
wondering why they just dont call them 23s unless they have some kind of changes in mind
What I wrote above. It would create too many ’23’s relative to more fuel efficient vehicles and skew their CAFE numbers, resulting in fines or guzzler taxes applied to some. Same reason they’re producing “2022 Limited” models – because extending the ’21 production cycle would create the same skew to ’21 CAFE numbers.
they must have changed the rules for example the 14 redesign came out spring 13
No rules changes. When they plan an early release like 13/14, they stagger other production to accommodate. They cut it so tight that I’ve seen holds on performance axle ratios so that “average” FE’s for a given model don’t cross a threshold that would impact the values on the stickers. We’re seeing the other side of that equation right now with the C8…2022 highway MPG’s dropped significantly relative to 2021 purely because more people are taking the Z51 option (with a hotter final drive ratio) than GM anticipated.
I want a choice of different colored interiors instead of BORING black!
Do you actually read articles or just the headline?
What about a diesel zr2? Probably Gmc version will get it! I wonder if they changed anything to remedy the leaking rear window.
When does the next generation come out, I’m sick of this one. Hate to say it, but the 2022 Limited looks better then the new ones.
I haven’t seen anything about a panoramic sunroof yet. I wonder if they’re going to have one since Ford and Ram do?
I’m sure they will. It’s kind of hard to look at the sky when you are driving though. 🤔
Chevrolet would save on advertising bye using fords 2019 raptor photo shoot. I’ve got a jingle the look of a ford raptor without the worry of walking back home.
Um ,I guess you don’t read . Look up Ford recalls before you write so that could embarrass you.
I guess you literally can’t read i was remarking on ford unreliable but since you brought it up. How about those fires that’s not good amd there truck recall.wow.one thing about gm they can’t fix them they literally ignited
When and what year are we going to get different colors other than black and gray interiors in silverado lt?
Is the double cab Trailboss gone for good??
