2022 Chevrolet Silverado Adds a Regular-Cab Short-Box Version

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.

    When exactly will the Reg Cab/Short Box Silverado be releasing? There’s still no build options on the Chevrolet website. Reply ASAP! Thank You.

      Indeed, today Chevy offers 4 configurations for the 2022 Silverado: Regular Cab/Long Bed, Double Cab/Standard Bed, and two Crew Cab variants – with a short bed and standard bed. The Regular Cab/Standard Bed should join this year (sorry, we don’t know exactly when), but we must say that this kind of bed – Standard Bed 79.44 inches long – will be the shortest one for the Regular Cab, so actually this is a medium bed
