The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 has begun arriving at dealerships in the United States after the official release of the full-size pickup was delayed earlier this year.
As GM Authority reported previously, production of the refreshed 2022 Silverado began at the GM Silao Assembly facility in Mexico on February 21st, which was slightly later than the initially planned production start date of February 7th. Similarly, production of the pickups will begin at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly facility in Indiana on March 14th, just over a week later than the initial start date of March 6th.
With vehicles now in production at the GM Silao Assembly plant, certain variations of the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 have begun arriving at General Motors dealerships in the U.S., as evidenced by photos shared on social media and across the web. Seeing as production is still limited, it’s likely the pickup will still be hard to come by until production ramps up at the Fort Wayne plant next week. GM will also soon begin building the truck at its Oshawa Assembly plant in southern Ontario, Canada, which will give it more production capacity as it works to fulfill overwhelming demand for its full-size trucks.
The online configurator tool for the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 also went live this month, allowing prospective customers to create their ideal Silverado 1500 specification and view a complete pricing breakdown. The updated light-duty Silverado introduces revised exterior styling, an overhauled cabin with new technologies, including new standard and available display screens, and adds the highly anticipated off-road-focused ZR2 model variant.
In many trim levels, the refreshed 2022 Silverado will come standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which now produces 24 percent more torque for a total of 430 pound-feet. The truck will also offer the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 and 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engines, as well as the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax. Under the skin is the same GM T1 platform as the pre-refresh models.
U.S. pricing for the 2022 Chevy Silverado starts at $33,195 including the destination freight charge for the entry-level Work Truck trim level.
