As if gas prices weren’t enough to deal with, it seems that all full-sized trucks are receiving rolling price increases for the 2022 model year, and the latest addition is the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500. A look at the online configurator sees three or four figures added to the MSRP of each trim.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Price Hike Details
The new starting prices for the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado after the $1,695 destination charge (the increases are in parenthesis) are as follows:
- WT: $34,195 ($1,000)
- Custom: $41,195 ($1,000)
- Custom Trail Boss: $49,095 ($1,200)
- LT: $45,295 ($1,000)
- RST: $49,495 ($900)
- LT Trail Boss: $54,895 ($1,200)
- ZR2: $67,995 ($1,200)
- LTZ: $54,295 ($800)
- High Country: $59,395 ($900)
Interestingly, these price hikes are the most meager we have seen compared to the 2022 Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 trucks. Notably, the most painful purchase for Chevy buyers would likely be the Work Truck, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss. These trims haven’t received the new interior but still see some pretty significant price bumps.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 comes with a suite of upgrades inside and out, most notably on more premium trim levels. The biggest story is the added technology and refinement that can be found in the interior of the vehicles. We’ve made sure to cover all the details of these improvements. While the prices have increased for the 2022 model year, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado is still a very worthy truck to purchase, especially when considering that the price hikes aren’t as drastic as its competitors.
If you are shopping for a 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, we recommend you take the time to run through the configurator and perhaps even compare pricing with the competitors. You might be able to justify the purchase of a Silverado once you run the numbers.
