All 2022 Silverados feature a fresh face with a restyled grill, while high end trims (LT and above) have an all-new interior, addressing one of the top criticisms of the current model.

The reconfigured layout includes a console shifter on trucks with front bucket seats and a dashboard equipped with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built-in Google Assistant, Maps and Play.

It’s all dressed in more premium materials, including open-pore wood and stainless steel speaker grates in the top-of-the-line High Country, which is also available with a version of GM’s Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system that’s been programmed to work with a trailer in tow.

For those who prefer off-road driving, Chevy is introducing a high-performance Silverado ZR2 that’s similar in concept to the midsize Colorado ZR2. It has unique exterior styling, a two-inch body lift, the Silverado’s 420 hp 6.2-liter V8 and a set of Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve dampers, which mechanically adjust their firmness based on wheel position and compression speed by controlling the flow of fluid through three chambers to blend on road comfort with extreme off-road capability.
