After Months Of Waiting, It’s Up

2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ZR2 Online Configurator Build And Price

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.

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.

Give yourself the time to run through the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 configurator yourself, and let us know what you think of the pricing and options in the comments below.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
