The 2023 Chevy Silverado will no longer be offered with two exterior paint colors that were offered on the pickup for the 2023 model year.
GM Authority has learned that the following two colors will be dropped after production of the 2022 Chevy Silverado comes to an end (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (GSK)
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
The Silver Ice Metallic exterior color was available on all trim levels except the High Country, while the Cherry Red exterior color was available on the LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ and High Country trim levels. This is a premium paint option that added $495 to the pickup truck’s price tag. Both the Silver Ice Metallic and Cherry Red Tintcoat exterior colors will be indirectly replaced by the following three new exterior colors on the 2023 model year Chevy Silverado:
- Harvest Bronze Metallic (GXN)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Sterling Gray Metallic (GXD)
GM has mild revisions in store for the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500. This will include the introduction of a new LZ0 iteration of the Duramax engine, which will carry similar specs as the current 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine. It’s unclear at this time exactly what the LZ0 will improve upon as compared to the current LM2 engine, but improved fuel economy, lower emissions, or an increase in output and capacities are likely in store.
In addition to the LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax engine, the refreshed 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also be available with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, and naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine. Production takes place at the GM Silao plant in Mexico, GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, and GM Oshawa plant in Canada. Pricing for the 2023 model year Silverado has yet to be announced.
