Chevrolet had plans to give the 2022 Silverado 1500 a thorough refresh. The global microchip shortage has since delayed those plans. However, the refreshed truck is still in the works. In the meantime, Chevrolet is releasing a Silverado Limited model for the 2022 model year.
The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited model will be available in Crivitz, Wisconsin later this year. General Motors also indicated that 2022 would be a “shortened model year.” This may mean the refreshed Silverado will be a 2023 model. Here is what you can expect from this Limited model.
The most notable changes to the Silverado 1500 Limited are in the engine lineup. For starters, the base Work Truck model will now come standard with the 2.7-liter Turbo engine while the previously standard 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 has been deleted entirely from the lineup.
The 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine will now come standard on the RST Crew Cab. In addition, this engine will be available as an option on the Work Truck model. Finally, the Duramax® 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel I6 is an option on the LT Trail Boss trim.
Once the refreshed Silverado 1500 officially drops, it will come with the updated exterior styling, an overhauled cabin, a larger infotainment screen, and a new gear selector layout. Test-drive it when it arrives on our lot here at Frank Porth Chevrolet in Crivitz. And in the meantime, stop by to take one of the Silverado trucks in our inventory for a whirl.
