The fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 made its official debut last September, revealing a long list of changes and updates for the light duty pickup truck. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado’s power-folding trailering mirrors are currently unavailable to order.
The full name of the feature in question is power-folding/manual-extending, power-adjustable vertical trailering mirrors with heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, turn signal indicators, puddle lamps, perimeter lighting, auxiliary lighting and memory, and is tagged with RPO code DQS. It is currently unclear as to why this feature is unavailable to order for the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500.
The DQS power-folding trailering mirrors option is normally offered on ZR2, LTZ, and High Country trim levels for an extra $260. The feature is not offered on Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, or LT Trail Boss trim levels.
The DQS power-folding trailering mirrors option is not to be confused with the manual-folding/extending, power-adjustable vertical trailering mirrors with heated upper glass, lower convex mirrors, integrated turn signals, clearance lamps and auxiliary lighting feature, the latter of which is tagged with RPO code DPO. The latter feature is still available to order, and is offered as an optional upgrade for Work Truck, LT, RST, and LT Trail Boss. The latter manual-folding feature is not available on Custom, Custom Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, or High Country trim levels.
Summed up, there are currently no trailering mirrors available for the higher trim levels of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500.
As a reminder, the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is available with four powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (now uprated at 430 pound-feet of torque), 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. Under the body panels is the GM T1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Silao Plant in Mexico, the GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana, and the GM Oshawa Plant in Canada.
