The 2022 Chevy Suburban arrives as the second model year of the latest twelfth-generation nameplate, introducing a selection of changes and updates over the preceding all-new 2021 model year. Now, interested fans and potential customers can spec the 2022 Chevy Suburban to taste using the official online configurator.
Compared to the preceding 2021 model year, the 2022 Chevy Suburban deletes two exterior paint colors, including Shadow Grey Metallic and Graywood Metallic. Meanwhile, three new exterior colors join the options list, including Auburn Metallic, Dark Ash Gray Metallic, and Evergreen Gray Metallic.
The wheel options list also gets revamped for the 2022 model year, with five wheel designs deleted. Specifically, the 22-inch 6-spoke Midnight Silver machine-faced aluminum wheels with Chrome inserts (RPO code SEW), the 22-inch Black Gloss wheels with Chrome inserts (RPO code SHD), the 22-inch Bright Chrome wheels (RPO code SF0), the 22-inch Carbon Flash Metallic wheels (RPO code SEZ), and the 22-inch Multi-spoke Bright polished wheels (RPO code SES) are no longer offered.
