General Motors is about to launch its biggest products since 2018 in the form of the refreshed 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks. With them comes a suite of upgrades inside and out, particularly on more premium trim levels. The big story is the added technology and refinement that can be found in the interiors, as well as improvements to the LM2 diesel and L3B turbocharged four cylinder engine. We’ve spilled no shortage of ink (pixels?) in covering these engineering improvements. And today, nearly six months after its original debut, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 build and price configurator is live, including the new ZR2 off-road trim level.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Build And Price Configurator
While the tab can run pretty high on a loaded 2022 Silverado 1500 (think C8 Corvette Stingray money), the one we’d spec out is a ZR2 model in Sand Dune Metallic with a generous amount of off-road kit that blends both factory options and dealer installed accessories. We added power tow mirrors, rocker protectors, off-road lights, and a bumper-exit exhaust system, for example. All in, it came out to $72,995 USD.
Another rout we took was configuring a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado High Country. This trim represents the most premium of all Silverado variants, and conveys that with more expensive paint options, about a dozen different wheels, bronzed accents, and interior technology for days. Crucially, however, it appears that Super Cruise hands-free driving technology is not going to be available out of the gate, and adaptive cruise control is going to be as good as it gets for now. The High Country Premium Package and Technology Package must also be selected to unlock all of the goodies one can have in their 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country (shouldn’t this thing come fully loaded?). Ticking most of the boxes and adding some accessories, and this new Chevy truck can easily approach $80,000 USD.
