The 2022 Chevy Silverado HD recently received a minor price increase on WT, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country trim levels.
Going forward, the price of the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD Work Truck (or WT) will be $500 more expensive across the board, no matter which powertrain or drive configuration is chosen. The Custom, meanwhile, will be $300 more when equipped with the 6.6L L8T gasoline V8 and $700 more when equipped with the optional Duramax 6.6L L5P diesel V8. The price of the LT trim has risen by $600 across the board, while the LTZ and High Country are both $500 more costly.
It’s not clear why the price of the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD has risen, although GM’s full-size trucks have experienced limited inventory throughout 2021 due to production setbacks. These production setbacks, which are related to the semiconductor chip shortage and parts shortages stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, have taken a bite out of GM’s profit margins and could therefore be part of the reason for the price changes.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado HD represents the third model year of the fourth-generation Silverado HD and introduces a few minor changes and updates over the outgoing 2021 model year. This includes the deletion of the Oxford Brown Metallic exterior color, which is indirectly replaced by the new Greenstone Metallic paint option. The latest model year also offers new 20-inch Machined face aluminum wheels with high gloss Black accents and beadlock appearance (RPO code SQ9) as an LPO-level option.
The Silverado HD continues with the same engine options for the 2022 model year, which include the aforementioned 6.6L L8T gasoline V8 and Duramax 6.6L L5P diesel V8. The gas V8 pairs with a GM 6L90 six-speed automatic, while the diesel engine links up to an Allison-branded GM 10-speed automatic.
