We’ve been publishing spy shots of the heavily refreshed 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra like crazy over the past few weeks. Today is no different as we get our cleanest view yet at the redesigned headlights expected to debut on the 2022 Silverado.
Our spy photographer recently caught a convoy of 2022 Silverado in multiple trim levels testing on public roads. Here’s what we found out from their report:
We caught a new convoy of 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 prototypes, revealing new details of the redesigned lighting scheme destined for the entry-level WT work trucks, and higher-trim LT models with the new LED signature.
Simplified Headlight Cluster For A Cleaner Front-Fascia Design
This latest prototype for the LT/LTZ Silverado 1500 is equipped with production-ready lights, and now reveals far more detail of what’s in store for the updated truck. Instead of the three-tier lighting design (with the turn indicator placed at the bottom in a thin light strip), the new design looks to be two-tiered, with a (larger) headlight strip at the top, and a new take on the Silverado’s unique LED signature that will also do double-duty as the truck’s turn indicator. The new headlight cluster looks to clean up what is a rather busy lighting arrangement on the current trucks.
Shape Adjustment To Silverado’s Upper Headlight Strip
The camouflage change, and the more production-ready nature of the test trucks gives us a clear look at some new design nuances given to the Silverado’s new headlight design. Instead of a largely rectangular upper headlight segment, the new trucks get a new angled notch to the inner edges of the lights. The changes can be seen on both the LT/Z trim prototype, and the simplified (halogen-only) base design applied to the WT (and Custom) trim packages.
Silverado’s Aerodynamic “Air Curtain” Feature Remains, But Restyled
Close-up analysis of our latest spy shots shows that the “air curtain” aerodynamic treatment—which was pioneered on the current Silverado—will continue on in the restyled trucks. We can see that while the air curtain pass-through remains, the manner in which it is instituted into the Silverado’s front-fascia design will change significantly. We can now see signs of a larger “air-intake” design feature sculpted into the outer edges of the front-fascia. The bold design feature is another sign of the more straightforward, less fussy nature of the 2022 Silverado 1500’s front-fascia design.
