The fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 made its big entrance earlier this month, introducing a wealth of changes and updates over the preceding 2021 model year and pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited. Now, we’re getting our first real-world look at the 2022 Silverado RST testing sans camouflage on public roads.
Chevy declined to show the 2022 Silverado RST trim level during the initial rollout of official images for the latest Chevy Silverado refresh. This particular model can be identified as the sportier RST trim level by its blacked-out and body-colored trim elements. The body consists of a Double Cab, Standard Bed configuration, while a 4×4 drivetrain turns output into traction.
The body is finished in crisp white paint, which provides a nice offset for the darker trim bits and details scattered across the sheet metal. Up front, we find the refreshed fascia treatment, the design of which GM Authority was the first to report on back in May. Thin upper lighting elements shine the way forward, while C-shaped lighting below are used for the signatures and turn signals. The upper portion of the grille includes a prominent horizontal grille bar, while the Chevy Bow Tie is high in the grille.
Moving over to the profile, we find the corners occupied by 20-inch Painted aluminum with machine face and Argent Metallic pockets, tagged with RPO code RD4. With a split-spoke design and two-tone finish, the 20-inch rollers give the 2022 Silverado RST refresh a solid stance and style, blending in well with the black-and-white exterior scheme.
The rear of the 2022 Silverado RST includes familiar taillight housings, while the lower bumper is finished in the same white paint as the rest of the body. Step-ups are located in the corners, while a tonneau cover is stretched across the bed.
Unfortunately, customers eager to get the 2022 Silverado refresh into their driveway will have to wait a bit longer, as the truck is not scheduled to arrive in dealers until the spring of the 2022 calendar year.
