The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 made its big debut last September, introducing a variety of changes and updates over the 2021 model year and pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited. Now we’re getting our first look at the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss.
Sent to us by a GM Authority reader, the image shows the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss in red paint, likely the shade known as “Red Hot,” with the hue complemented by a variety of black trim bits. The front end presents new styling introduced with the 2022 model year refresh, ditching the “sideburns” of the pre-refresh fascia, while up top, we spot a black hood insert. Lower in the fascia, we see two red tow hooks in the black bumper.
Additional features for LT Trail Boss models include 18-inch wheels, finished in black, a 2-inch suspension lift, and an Autotrac two-speed transfer case.
As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado features a totally overhauled interior, which is equipped on LT trim levels and above, and includes a 13.4-inch color touchscreen and 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Silverado LT Trail Boss now equipped with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine as standard. Output from the four-cylinder is rated at 310 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which represents a 20-percent torque boost compared to pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited models. Further engine options in the lineup include 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 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax.
Underpinning the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado is the GM T1 platform, while production is set to take place at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly facility in Indiana, the GM Silao Plant in Mexico, and the GM Oshawa Plant in Canada.
