The fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 introduces several changes and updates over the pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited and 2021 model year. Among these changes is the inclusion of power door locks and power windows as standard equipment for all trim levels of the Light Duty pickup, including the base-model Work Truck (WT).
Previously, the base-model Chevy Silverado 1500 WT Regular Cab was equipped with manual door locks and manual crank windows. A power driver’s window with express up/down feature, power front passenger’s window with express down feature, and keyless entry with two key fobs were offered as part of the WT Convenience Package, tagged with RPO code PCV.
Further updates for the 2022-model-year refresh include a push button starter included as standard across the lineup, as GM Authority covered previously. What’s more, refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss models are now equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine as standard, while refreshed Silverado Trail Boss Custom models are offered with the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine as an optional upgrade.
Outside, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 features revised styling, while the interior space and cabin layout was completely overhauled for LT trim levels and above. For a more complete breakdown of the changes implemented inside the cabin, check out the exclusive GM Authority cabin tour video.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is available with four engine options, including the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which is uprated with 20 percent more torque at 420 pound-feet, as well as the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. The 2.7L I4 L3B connects to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the three remaining engines connect to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
