When the Chevrolet Silverado was redesigned for 2019 it was a well-received update that was primarily dinged by critics for an interior that was far from best in class.
It was functional, but uninteresting, and constructed from relatively low-grade materials.
That’s been remedied for 2022 with a gut renovation that brings an all-new dashboard to all but the entry level Silverado WT and Custom trims and raises the bar for style and tech.
The Silverado also has a refreshed face and is available with range of engines that includes a 310 hp turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder, 355 hp 5.3-liter V8 and 420 hp 6.2-liter V8.
Its 277 hp 3.0-liter diesel gets a maximum tow rating boost of 4,000 pounds from last year’s model to match the big V8’s 13,300-pound rating when properly equipped, second only to the Ford F-150’s 14,000 pound rating.
The new dashboard features a horizontal motif that brings to mind 1970s boulevardier sedans, especially in the top of the line Silverado High Country, which dresses it in real leather and wood trim at a starting price of $64,245. The transmission selector also moves from the column to the center console on models with two front seats.
The lowest-priced Silverado with it is the LT Double Cab Standard Bed with the 2.7-liter engine that starts at $46,595.
A digital instrument cluster and 13.4-inch infotainment system display are very modern touches, however, with the latter powered by Google and offering an optional 360-degree camera system.
The High Country can now also be ordered with the latest version of GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving aid that works with a trailer and can change lanes automatically to pass slower vehicles ahead.
