A 2022 Chevy Silverado Prototype has been caught undergoing testing once again. This time we’ve got an even better view of the heavily refreshed full size truck – including the first ever look at the new interior.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the newish 2022 Silverado or Sierra being tested. We first caught trucks testing in August, then again in September….twice. Our first look at the interior of the 2022 GMC Sierra came just last week.
Now, the 2022 Silverado is getting the same treatment. However, we can see even more.
2022 Silverado Spy Shots In Brief
- The new photographs show the 2022 Silverado will have Super Cruise as an option, confirming rumors.
- Chevy will upside the infotainment screen – perhaps even larger than what is available in the 2021 Tahoe/Suburban.
- The column shifter is all but dead in upper trim level trucks. Look for push button or dial shift going forward.
Big Infotainment Screen Definitely In Development
The prototype was towing a large trailer on Michigan highways, allowing us to peek into inside and see solid evidence of a new, large central screen through gaps in the heavy interior camouflage. The camo keeps the ultimate size and aspect ratio of the new screen undetermined, but the new images finally give us real-world proof that the rumored screen enhancements are for real. There appears to be significantly more screen real estate in the works—part of an effort address the Silverado and Sierra’s perceived interior shortcomings.
Super Cruise Steering Wheel Confirmed In Prototype
Our new shots also show iron-clad evidence of Super Cruise technology being tested on the 2022 Silverado. The display band at the top of the steering wheel is glowing green, as the GM test drivers test the Super Cruise system with a trailer in tow.
No Column Shifter In View
Earlier shots hinted that GM’s pickups might be doing away with their column shifters, and these new shots seem to offer more supporting evidence. Our close-ups of the Super Cruise steering show no evidence of the column shift lever, suggesting a move to a digital gear selector—perhaps a push-button system, or rotary dial.
