The new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck was recently spied testing, and plenty of design changes are coming. Unfortunately, the upcoming model wears a heavy camo, and it’s difficult to see what is hiding under the skin.
However, we heard that the next-gen model would feature alongside exterior revised, a mild interior update. That means more technology will be introduced and a richer package of standard equipment. Interestingly, the engine department will remain, and we can expect the same potent powertrain options.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado Exterior Changes
As we mentioned, the spied prototype 2022 Chevrolet Silverado is wearing heavy camouflage. Moreover, because of that, we can’t see what’s under the skin of this pickup. However, from some gossips, the spied Silverado will come with a brand-new front fascia.
Like the model’s Blazer and Silverado HD, the new pickup will host almost the same LED headlight system with daytime running lights. More importantly, the manufacturer will use the same MultiFlex tailgate that should improve the vehicle’s functionality.
The forthcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado has been spied testing. Unfortunately, spy photos failed to reveal interior upgrades. From what we heard, this model will feature a modern cabin, providing more room.
The interior will also introduce plenty of new technology, and it will suffer severe refinements, according to Chevy. Generally, comfort will be improved, and Silverado will deliver more standard amenities.
Also, buyers can choose either vinyl or cloth seats that can 40/20/40-split/fold. Besides, the center stack will be new, and Silverado will host Chevrolet’s latest Infotainment 3 system. This system can be operated through a 7-inch touch screen. Other standard equipment includes Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, plus a 6-speaker audio system, one USB port, and a 12-volt outlet. We can also expect some of the safety features from the higher trim to become standard on the base model.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado Engine Specs
Under the hood, the forthcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado will use the same familiar engine variants. That means the light-duty pickup truck will come standardly with a 5.3-liter V8 gasoline engine that is capable of producing 355 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. Besides this unit, Chevy also offers optional and more potent 6.2-liter powertrain that delivers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of twisting power.
Also, some of the markets will get the opportunity to choose reliable 3.0-liter diesel powertrain as well. From what we heard, the six-cylinder diesel unit will provide more torque and better fuel efficiency. Plenty of speculations circulate that the next model could get some of the electrifications. However, we are still waiting for an official statement.

The forthcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado will be facelifted, and it will introduce plenty of upgrades. According to the latest news, this pickup truck will go on sale next summer.
Basically, the manufacturer will add more optional amenities. The base trim will start at around $33,000. As you can see, it is a small jump in terms of price. Chevy Silverado will continue its battle for the first place with the famous Ram 1500.
