The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 introduces a full model refresh, debuting as the fourth model year for the latest fourth-gen pickup nameplate. Among the updates is revised exterior styling and a completely overhauled interior space, and now, one builder is adding a dash of customization to the mix, as seen in the following brief video feature.
Coming to us from VIP Auto Accessories, the video is about two-and-a-half minutes long, and goes over the bespoke details on offer starting with a red-accented front Bow Tie badge, which really stands out against the black of the revised Silverado 1500 front grille and fascia. The tow hooks are also done in red, as is the Chevrolet script on the tailgate.
Taking a peak under the fenders, we find this 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 rides on new Rough Country Vertex suspension, which give the pickup a considerable lift over the factory components. The new suspension bits are complemented by some fresh rubber, specifically Hankook’s Dynapro XT series, which not only look great, but should offer plenty of grip off the pavement. The new tires are mounted on a set of powder-coated wheels, which continue the black-out theme, while the brake calipers add an additional splash of red to the mix. The wheels are also mounted on two-inch spacers for a wider stance.
Final exterior touches include black exhaust tips and new sidesteps for easier ingress and egress, while the windows get a dark 35-percent tint. The upgrades also continue in the cabin thanks to new seat upholstery with a custom diamond stitching.

As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado lineup is offered with four engine options, including the turbocharged 2.7 I4 L3B gasoline engine, 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 skin, the Chevy Silverado 1500 rides on the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, the GM Oshawa plant in Canada, and the GM Silao plant in Mexico.
