General Motors unveiled the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 last September, and with it, a long list of changes and updates for the popular light duty pickup. At this point, we’ve seen all 2022 Silverado 1500 models in real life except for one – the Trail Boss LT. Luckily, we managed to catch up to the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss LT as it was undergoing some kind of testing, and are now taking our first look at it via these real-world pictures.
This particular example was spotted plying the roadways in an eye-catching shade of red paint dubbed Cherry Red Tintcoat. Before we go any further, we should note that this particular prototype is not wearing the production-intent front clip. In other words, it’s wearing a black-painted front fascia, whereas production models will actually wear a body-color one.
Beyond the actual front fascia, the 2022 Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss does feature a High Gloss bumper as standard, complemented by a Black grille Bow Tie badge and red recovery hooks. The lighting spec includes LED reflector headlamps with LED signature Daytime Running Lamps and Amber tracer animation, as well as LED front fog lamps.
Moving to the sides, this particular refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss LT rolls on a set of 20-inch High gloss Black painted aluminum wheels (RPO code RD5) with LT265/60R20 Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires (RPO code QFV), an optional upgrade. Standard spec includes 18-inch High gloss Black painted aluminum wheels (RPO code RD1) with LT275/65R18C Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires (RPO code R3O).
Further optional upgrades include body-color door handles, which replace the standard Gloss Black door handles. There’s also a set of optional outside power-adjustable, manual folding/extending vertical trailering mirrors with heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, integrated turn signals, clearance lamps and auxiliary lighting (RPO code DPO).
Finally, we have the rear of the Silverado Trail Boss, which matches the LED-studded front end with LED tail lights. The tail lights include a lighting signature, lighting animation, and incandescent reverse lights. Lower in the rear fascia, the 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss LT features a High Gloss rear bumper as standard, while this example is also equipped with the optional Multi-Flex Tailgate (QK2) with multiple positions for enhanced usability and utility.
As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado is available with four engine options, including the turbo 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, now uprated to a maximum of 430 pound-feet of torque, plus 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.
