What’s new for 2022: Chevrolet

Chevy is at a crossroads for 2022. One road stretches into the future with the electric Silverado 2024 and the Equinox electric compact crossover. The other extends into the past to honor performance icons such as the Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro, as well as eradicate what was once new with its more affordable cars discontinued, the Chevy Spark mini crossover and Chevy Trax mini crossover. GM is also correcting Chevy’s course by releasing the 2022 Bolt EV after battery fire issues were fixed.

One vehicle that picks up bow-tie suspension at the right time is the best-selling, the updated 2022 Silverado pickup truck. Due to market conditions and lack of supplies, Chevrolet dealer groups are selling two premium trucks, the LTD branded carryover Silverado, as well as an updated 2022 Silverado with more standard features and an updated interior design.

Here’s a closer look at what’s new from Chevy for 2022, plus a 2023 model or two.
