2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Gets New Dark Ash Metallic Color: First Look24
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 adds three new exterior colors to its palette: Glacier Blue Metallic, Sand Dune Metallic, and Dark Ash Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Dark Ash hue.
Assigned RPO code G6M and touch-up paint code WA-618G, Dark Ash Metallic is one of 10 exterior colors offered on the full-size light duty pickup truck, which include:
- Cherry Red Tintcoat
- Iridescent Pearl Tricoat
- Northsky Blue Metallic
- Red Hot
- Silver Ice Metallic
- Summit White
- Dark Ash Metallic (new for 2022)
- Glacier Blue Metallic (new for 2022)
- Sand Dune Metallic (new for 2022)
The Dark Ash Metallic color is available on all trim levels and can be combined with all four interior colorways:
- Jet Black
- Jet Black/Graystone
- Jet Black/Nightshift Blue
- Gideon/Very Dark Atmosphere
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 pickup debuted on September 9th, introducing a long list of highly-anticipated changes and updates over the preceding 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 Limited models. Perhaps the biggest change to the refreshed model is a new interior on LT and higher trim levels, meaning LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, High Country, and the all-new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2.
On the outside, the refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 features a revamped front fascia, including new headlights with animated walk-up and walk-away features along with swiping turn signals on certain trims.
In many trim levels, the refreshed 2022 Silverado features the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine as standard. The boosted four produces 24 percent more torque for a total of 430 pound-feet in the refreshed models. The truck will also continue offering 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 prior to the refresh.
U.S. pricing for the 2022 Chevy Silverado starts at $35,495 including the destination freight charge for the entry-level Work Truck trim level.
As of 2019, Chevy Silverado 1500 models have been assembled at the GM Silao plant in Mexico and the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, USA. Additionally, the GM Oshawa plant in Canada will soon join these two facilities in producing the Silverado 1500 models. This will make Oshawa the only GM plant to exclusively produce Silverado models, as opposed to both Silverado and Sierra models, and also the only plant to assemble both light and heavy duty trucks.

50 Shades of Grey yet?
Yet zero shades of green still!
Where is the Green? F-ing Gm keeping customers away every day. Should be they’re new slogan! Limited axle choices. You can’t have 3.73 with Z-71 etc. You can’t make this stuff up! Upfitter switches in half ton?
Its the same as GMC Titanium Rush Metallic and Cadillac Galactic Gray Metallic. Also, these pictured GM put out are very deceiving. It has a log of purple and blue in it. The color changes a lot depending on lighting and angles.
ZR2 would be a nice 50k truck
Like I say repeatedly , 4 shades of black paint , 3 shades of black interior , all dark colors to blend with there CHEAP un-finished black exterior bed steps, wheel lip moldings , bumper steps, stupid door mount mirrors , 2″ mud guards , bed corners , bed caps, bumper plastic, front bumper plastic, plastic grill, plastic hood pieces, running board plastic’s , plastic door handles , tail gate step that hits hitch receiver , inside you have a blown plastic dash , w/ the new car like dash, thin seats , little tiny dash knobs , same steering wheel and console for 10 + years now. take the word high country or denali off the door and you have a cheap looking work truck and all the plastic pieces fading white with in a year.
Quit candy coating it. Just say what you think!
Wow mickey go push your Ford
Instead of mickey your name should be drama queen. Reading comprehension must be a little low since I only see 1 black and 1 grey exterior paint color, in fact 7 of the 10 exterior colors are either light or bright. The rest of your comment is the same rinse and repeat garbage you have been spewing for months. Funny thing is many of your complaints apply to the other brands as well but you choose to wear your rose colored glasses when viewing Ford and Ram.
You can tell when a troll fan boy comes in to a competitors page, they say a whole bunch of stuff that has zero truth. Unfinished bed steps? Should they be body color you step on with your shoe? Every manufacturer is doing black plastic trim for the fad that is the rugged look now, even cars are doing it. Every manufacturer has plastic door handles, grille, bumper, etc. Car like dash is what the suburban dads now dictate and was started with Ram and then Ford followed, so GM has to follow suit. Consoles haven’t changed? They change with every interior redesign. Come on kid, atleast have some truth to what you say and not try and spin it like every manufacturer is not doing the same exact thing and they started doing it first.
Competitors? This website is in no way shape or form related to the official gm website.
As long as it’s not that ugly non-metallic battleship gray I keep seeing on imports.
I like that grey!
Hey GM…..heard of a double or single cab?????? Who in hell goes off-roading with a sh!t load of people?????? STUPID!!!!!
Can’t say I disagree, but both the TRX and Raptor are only crew cab as well, so there must be some market research behind it
Honestly this is a very nice grey. Tiny bit of purple hue in it. It was a very hard choice between this color and glacier blue. Much better then satin steel or shadow.
But I wanted something a little more distinguishing this time around so GBM won me over.
When can we get a NON-metallic grey? Especially as a base option. Black is a b!tch to keep clean, and I hate white. I want a plain, low-key grey. Toyota and Dodge can do it, so can you!
I just came here to see all the complaints about another gray color. Not disappointed.
I’m just sick of the metallics.
I’m very, very disappointed with GM, they are rendered only dark colors. This is my third High Country, one blue and the last two cherry red. My saleswoman at Nicol Auto in La Sarre Québec told me that GM no longer made Cherry Gray and Red and also no Micro Ship (puse). So I said NO THANK YOU, I don’t want any other color than Cherry Red and I kept my Sylverado Hihg Country 2018, 6.2 L which I like BUT. Since 2011 I’ve been changing my trucks every three years but this time it’s a BIG NO. I looked at you at Ford and Dodge RAM for my Cherry Red color. To bad so sad GM, you will lose a good customer, very very disappointed with you other GM… You can look in your system and you will see that I am not a liar… I would like to have a followup on my comment and I ask you to answer me ASAP…
Why did GM make you their truck model like the Chevy Nova Montana and Siera truck in Brazil… Is it cheaper to make them in this country’s and once in the USA / Canada you are going to charge us consumers more… And for the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate’s Paldao Wood (wood from a Asia Tree), exterior Trim such as Vader Chrome, 22-inch Whells and GM’s CarbonPro composite Cargo Box, is flown into U.S. from Southeast Asia, pricing starts at $81,790.00 U.S.,. What a bad GM administration… You should give the work to our employers in our two countries USA and Canada, you are not helping our GM economies… You are incompetent…
I am not happy about you GM, you are very bad… 🙁 But U dont give HELL about use the consumer… U do like Trudeau, U do what U want… U are bad Leader like Trudeau… 🙁
All I see in your comment’s by costumer’s, is complaint’s about U GM, shame on U and you engineer’s… 🙁
GM’s lack of quality is only outpaced by it’s lack of concern for customer satisfaction or customer service! My experiences in attempting to deal with rectifying THEIR recalls on my 2 GM vehicles has been frustrating, at best. One of the said recalls is STILL NOT RECTIFIED due to 2 separate dealerships denying the recall exists, even with the re all letter in hand! This is from a lifetime GM Family….formerly GM after I trade these 2 vehicles in on a different company’s product. Shame on you, GM. Maybe GM should change to JM(JUNK MOTORS). Can you say Duramax?
Just the facts ma’am..
