When the current-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500 rolled into showrooms back in 2019, the result was a really good truck with numerous improvements and increased capability. The problem was the new Silverado still wasn’t quite as good as the Ford F-150 or Ram 1500. An extensive update for 2022 has changed that, however, making the Silverado a viable alternative to those competitors.
Its biggest shortcoming was an interior that wasn’t up to class standards, with a look and feel that fell short. For 2022, that is thankfully changed, with a significant upgrade in cabin materials and design. A welcoming and comfortable interior is something pickup buyers have come to expect in recent years, and Ram in particular has raised the bar with its near-luxury interior quality. Ford has also stepped up, particularly in higher trims of the F-150.
While the Silverado’s interior improvements are limited to mid- and higher trims, those are the models most favored by non-commercial buyers. We’re guessing that everyone but utility companies and contractors will find the upgrade is worth the added expense.
Chevrolet didn’t mess with much else as part of the freshening, nor was there any need to. Our High Country trim test truck proved capable, spacious and comfortable; it was much nicer inside than the last Silverado we tested.
