2022 Chevrolet Silverado will be available in a regular-cab body style with a standard bed or a long bed, the automaker promises.
According to recent reports, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado will have a regular-cab variant with a short box for the North American market. This is good news, indeed, as there is a demand for this version in the USA, but no offers now, unlike other markets (Middle East, in particular).
More precisely, American buyers will have a choice of bed sizes on the regular-cab Silverado: standard (a shorter one of the two available) and long.
The regular or standard cab, we remind, is the smallest one with two full-size, front-hinging doors. Such a cab is good for single drivers or couples, as it provides seating for up to 3 people and no extra space behind the seats.
It should be noted right away that the short box will come only with the Silverado’s Work Truck (WT) trim – the cheapest and most rudimental one, so to say. Predictably, this version won’t get the innovations, high-tech features announced for the 2022 Chevy Silverado, such as Super Cruise, for example. But it will naturally have 17-inch steel wheels, black bumpers, manual windows, cloth upholstery, and a two-speaker sound system.
Pricing and specs for the short-box pickup will follow later. Expect them to be close to those of the long-box Silverado. The price should start around $30,000, the powertrains will likely include a base 4.3-liter EcoTec V6 with 285 hp, 305 lb-ft and rear-wheel drive, or optional engines – a 2.7L turbo-four, a 5.3L EcoTec V8 with four-wheel-drive.
The new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado should go into production in the first quarter of next year, unless Chevy’s plans change due to the ongoing chip shortage.
As a reminder, General Motors will discontinue the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited once the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 enters into production. Earlier Chevy launched the `Limited` edition to fill the gap between the pre-refresh 2021 Silverado and refreshed 2022 Silverado.
