We’ve seen the new design of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, specifically the High Country, ZR2 LTZ, and LT. But Chevrolet conveniently left out what the lower trim levels, the Custom and WT would look like. We captured a glimpse of the new design when it was leaked in the GM parts catalog, but we’ve never seen what it was like in person. Now, we have our first look.
Our spy photographer recently captured two 2022 Silverado without any camouflage at all and in trim levels we’ve never seen before. Custom and WT.
The pair sport a different grille and headlight configuration than the more expensive models Chevrolet showed off a few weeks ago. Gone are the led daytime running lights and turn signals. Also gone are the LED headlights, instead replaced by what appears to be halogen bulbs.
Our spy photographer reports:
While the 2022 Silverado 1500 has gone official, Chevrolet has yet to show off the redesigned truck in its WT and Custom trims. We now have undisguised looks at a base work truck, and a Trail Boss Custom, showing its simplified halogen lighting and the new take on the “CHEVROLET” branded grille design.
Instead of being embedded in the thick crossbar on the current version of the WT and Custom, the “CHEVROLET” lettering is now more subtly integrated into the overall grille design. The crossbar has been toned-down with a thinner and more nuanced shape. The “CHEVROLET” now resides higher on the front-fascia, matching the higher-up placement of the Chevy bow tie on the restyled upper-level trims.
The Trail Boss prototype also shows a new front bumper, with newly integrated tow hooks (still in red, of course). The facelifted Trail Boss custom also appears to go without the front bumper’s lower air deflector, perhaps resulting in a better approach angle and front clearance.
