The Shadow Gray Metallic exterior color will no longer be offered on regular cab configurations of the 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited, GM Authority can confirm.
The Shadow Grey Metallic color (paint code GJI) was offered on all 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited trim levels except the range-topping High Country. It’s unclear how many WT regular cab orders were processed with this paint color for the 2022 interim model – or if GM accepted any at all. Compared to the Satin Steel Metallic and Silver Ice Metallic gray colors offered on the truck, Shadow Gray Metallic has a darker tone with a slightly blueish tinge.
Production of the 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited began at the GM Silao Assembly plant in Mexico on September 20th. The GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana, meanwhile, will begin production of the trucks on September 27th.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited carries over all aspects of the pre-update 2021 model-year Chevy Silverado 1500, including trim levels, options and most exterior and interior colors. The Limited will serve as a stop-gap to the refreshed mid-cycle enhancement model, which made its official debut earlier this month and will go on sale in the spring of 2022.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado introduces updated exterior styling to the pickup, along with an overhauled interior featuring a 13.4-inch color touchscreen. The 2022 model also introduces a new ZR2 model variant, which arrives with front and rear e-lockers, a taller ride height, underbody skid plates Multimatic DSSV dampers and other rugged off-road-ready equipment. The only available engine option in the ZR2 will be GM’s 6.2L L87 V8 engine, which produces 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Standard 2022 Silverado 1500 models will continue with the same powertrain lineup, which consists of the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (which will now produce 20 percent more torque), the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax and the naturally aspirated 5.3L L84 V8.
