Just hours after the official unveiling of the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado and the world debut of the first 2022 Silverado ZR2 in Detroit, General Motors announced the massive new Silverado upgrade in Middle East. The automaker confirmed that both the standard model and the all-new 2022 Silverado ZR2 will be introduced in the middle of next year in Southwest Asian countries.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado is the fourth-generation model’s mid-cycle update, which focused on improving the two most dissonant aspects of the initial version introduced for the 2019 model year: the controversial front design and the lackluster interior. Both elements feature a notable change in the 2022 Silverado, especially the cabin redesign, while the ZR2 version becomes Chevrolet‘s new flagship off-road pickup.
“The Silverado is an icon of motoring culture in the Middle East, with a passionate fan base,” said Chief Marketing Officer, GM Africa & Middle East, Sharon Nishi, in a statement. “The new 2022 Silverado model will not only meet the demands of our customers, but surpass them, giving customers more choice, a more refined design and new technology options. And with the introduction of the first-ever, off-road focused ZR2 trim, we’ll also be giving customers more off-road adrenaline than ever before,” she added.
In addition to the new front fascia, which for the first time ditches the pickup’s signature horizontal split headlight design, the 2022 Chevy Silverado’s highlight change is the completely redesigned cabin from the LT trim level onwards. The previous vertically arranged dash is replaced by a new one with more horizontal lines, which includes a large 13.4-inch touchscreen and a massive digital instrument panel compatible with the latest Google built-in solutions.
As for the new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, it represents the latest addition to the Bow Tie brand’s successful line of off-road trucks, which includes the legendary Z71 trim and acclaimed Trail Boss trim that come factory-lifted. The model adopts a more imposing and sinister appearance, as well as a complete package of functional improvements that elevate the pickup’s off-road performance to an unprecedented level.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado and the new ZR2 off-road variant will arrive in Chevrolet dealerships in the Middle East during the summer of 2022, just a couple of months after going on sale in the United States and Canada next spring. As has been the case for past generations of the Silverado, the new 2022 line is expected to be offered in the region in Regular Cab and Double Cab configurations.
