The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado design, from the outside, is a confident one. Its aesthetic uniquely stands out from both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150, and while some critics have described it as “busy,” we have grown to like the sculpted front fascia. However, the GM Design Instagram page just posted something that we wish got the green light. And, hopefully, this look found its way into the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 refresh, capped by the upcoming Silverado ZR2 off-road truck.

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado is expected to be revealed later this year, with updates to both the exterior, and a major overhaul to the interior compared to the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado. Considering the incredible functionality of the 2021 Ford F-150 interior, with its optional fully-reclining front seats, and a folding table. We don’t expect these levels of accommodation with the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, but we do expect a much larger, landscape-oriented touchscreen that will hopefully provide more “wow” factor with the center console. But one thing that the new Silverado is expected to offer that other pickup trucks won’t have is GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology.
Designed to provide hands-free driving for extended periods of time on geofenced areas, high-end trim levels of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado should make interstate commutes and road trips alike less strenuous on the body, and is expected to even allow for semi-autonomous towing. Those who have ever trekked down I-75 after long weekend in Northern Michigan know how much of a relief this can be.
Also in the works for the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 refresh is the upcoming ZR2. As MC&T first reported back in 2020, the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 will essentially be a supersized version of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 midsize truck. This means a taller, wider stance to fit bigger Goodyear Wrangler tires, fantastic Multimatic DSSV dampers, front and rear locking differentials, improved underbody protection, and superior approach/departure angles. Just don’t expect a supercharged V8 engine.
