General Motors debuted the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 in September of 2021, officially unveiling a long list of updates and changes over the 2019, 2020 and 2021 model years, as well as the pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited. Among those changes is revised front end styling, and we want to know – which truck looks better? Tell us by voting in the following poll.
Before we jump into this, it bears mentioning that we’re talking specifically about the fourth-gen Chevy Silverado 1500 light-duty pickup, which includes the 2019 through current model years. The pre-refresh design can be seen on the 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 Limited model years, while the refreshed design includes the 2022.5, 2023, and 2024 model years.
Now then, arguably the biggest styling change can be seen in the corners of the front fascia, where the refreshed pickup does away with the infamous “sideburns” of the pre-refresh models. Specifically, the refreshed model gets a molded bumper and front quarter panel treatment, as compared to the vertically elongated styling elements bracketing the corners of the pre-refresh model.
The refreshed model also gets revised headlight treatment, incorporating larger C-shaped light signatures that now double as turn signals; the pre-refresh models housed the turn signals in a horizontally-oriented strip below the the C-shaped element. The refreshed model also gets differently-shaped upper lights, with a different graphic within the headlamps housing.
The grilles were altered as well, with the refreshed model running the Chevy badge higher than the pre-refresh model.
In addition to revisions to the front fascia already covered, the new model also ushers in new exterior paint options and new wheel designs, as well as the new off-road-oriented Chevy Silverado ZR2, which is equipped with its own unique dirt-duty equipment and related styling changes.
Of course, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 also introduced all-new interior appointments for LT trim levels and above. However, for the purpose of this poll, we’re going to focus exclusively on the new exterior.
So then, we want to know – which do you think looks better, the pre-refresh Chevy Silverado 1500, or the refreshed Chevy Silverado 1500? Tell us by voting in the poll above, and remember to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevy Silverado news, Chevy news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
