The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 features a long list of updates and changes, headlined by an all-new cabin and interior layout. One of the new features of the overhauled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 interior is a push button start that is included as standard across the lineup.
Prior to the introduction of the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, a push button start (also known as keyless ignition) was either standard or optional on all trim levels except for WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss. This is the case for Light Duty pickup trucks introduced for the fourth-generation with the 2019 model year, up to the 2021 model year and pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited.
Now, however, the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado includes Push Button Start as standard across the lineup.
Rather than requiring a physical key like a traditional ignition starter, Push Button Start works wirelessly via the key fob, which can be located in your pocket or a bag. The fob will transmit a signal to the onboard computer system and enable the user to start the engine without removing the key fob, making it easier to start and stop the vehicle.
Standard Push Button Start is one just one aspect of the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 interior. Check out GM Authority’s video tour of the interior for a more complete picture of the upgrades, updates, and changes.
As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is available with four powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.7 I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque (a 20-percent torque increase), the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin, the 2022 Chevy Silverado rides on the GM T1 platform, while production will take place at the GM Silao plant in Mexico and the GM Fort Wayne factory in Indiana.
