2022 Chevrolet Silverado gets refreshed, introduces ZR2 trim
Chevrolet Silverado, the popular full-sizer from Chevy was in need of a refresh which it rightly gets for the 2022 model year. The truck gets a nip and tuck for the new model year in the form of a revised design, more tech, and a new Silverado ZR2 trim.
The design of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado gets some upgrades over the outgoing model. These include lowered headlights, a revised grill, and three new exterior shades, Dark Ash, Sand Dune, and Glacier Blue Metallic.
But the most visual changes are on the new 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2. With its off-road intentions, the Silverado ZR2 brings in new bumpers, endowing the truck a healthy 31.8-degree approach angle. The grill is all blacked out, so is the bow-tie emblem. The front end also flaunts the skid plate while the sides show off the 18-inch wheels shod with 33-inch mud-terrain tyres.
The interior gets improvements in the form of a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, paired with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen. The models with the captain seats up front get an electronic shifter on the center console while the bench seat variants retain it on the steering column.
To improve the luxury quotient, the High-Country model gets open-pore wood on many panels and leather on the seats. The ZR2 gets a two-tone Jet Black and Graystone leather wrapping to set it apart. The High Country will also get the Super Cruise advanced driving assist system. The other trims of the Silverado will get the Chevy Safety Assist suite with a list of safety features.
Power comes from four different engines, with a turbo 2.7-litre four-cylinder unit opening the range with 310 hp. A 3.0-litre turbo diesel is available for the ones planning to tow the world, with a towing capacity of 4,300 kgs. The best-in-line performance comes from the naturally-aspirated 6.2-litre V8 engine of the ZR2. This mill produces 420 hp and 624 Nm of torque. This mill is hooked up to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado range should make its market debut in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Middle East before next summer.
