Three months after the U.S. debut of the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado in early September, The General just announced Chevrolet‘s full-size pickup in Mexico. The Mexican subsidiary of the automaker confirmed that the updated 2022 Chevy Silverado and Cheyenne will officially arrive in the North American country in the middle of 2022.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado and Cheyenne introduce the mid-cycle update to the fourth generation of GM’s best-selling pickup truck, which as usual will continue to be marketed in Mexico via two distinctive nameplates. In that market, the Silverado is the entry-level truck that spans the Work Truck and Custom trim levels, while Cheyenne represents the remaining, higher-end trim levels.
“The New Chevrolet Silverado and Cheyenne have been redesigned to show the toughness that allows them to overcome all roads, along with the technology to do it with style,” said Chevrolet Mexico Marketing Manager, Yammil Guaida, in an official press release. “With a legacy of more than 45 years as one of the most beloved pickups in our market, both have been produced since 2005 by GM in Silao, Guanajuato,” he added.
In addition to the revamped exterior design and a revamped cockpit , the 2022 Chevy Silverado and Cheyenne also see the introduction of a turbocharged engine as standard, a first for the Silverado and Cheyenne family. Meanwhile, the all-new Cheyenne ZR2 off-roader expands the lineup to slot above the Trail Boss models. Spanning the WT and Custom trims, the 2022 Silverado will come standard in Mexico with the turbocharged 2.7L L3B I-4 engine making 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque.
Meanwhile, the all-new 2022 Chevy Cheyenne ZR2 becomes the new flagship off-road offering with imposing design and high levels of equipment. Highlights of the new 2022 Cheyenne ZR2 include a two-inch raised suspension, 18-inch black wheels with off-road tires, a model-specific hood, plus a unique grille with the Flowtie Chevy logo and ZR2 badges.
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado and Cheyenne will officially launch in Mexico during the second quarter of 2022. The trucks will be manufactured locally at the GM Silao plant, which supplies the Latin country while also supporting high demand in the United States market. Specific model configurations and pricing details of the refreshed models for the Mexican market will be released closer to launch.
