The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 configurator was initially supposed to go live on January 5th, however this launch date got pushed back for unknown reasons. GM Authority has now learned the revised launch date for the tool, which allows users to select their preferred body configuration, powertrain, trim level, exterior and interior colors and options and features, will be March 3rd.
As GM Authority reported previously, dealers can already place orders for the refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 and have been doing so since the first order cycle went into effect on December 16th of 2021. Despite this, the customer-facing configurator tool has still yet to go live, which is a bit odd for GM. In fact, we can’t think of any recent GM vehicle launch where this scenario has taken place.
General Motors first unveiled the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 last September. The pickup introduces revised exterior styling to the nameplate, along with an all-new interior design and layout and new available technologies. A multitude of powertrains are offered, including the turbo 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (which now produces 20 percent more torque for a total of 430 pound-feet), the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. The pickup rides on the same GM T1 platform as the pre-refresh model.
Production of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 takes place at the GM Silao Plant in Mexico, the GM Fort Wayne Assembly facility in Indiana, and the GM Oshawa Plant in Canada. Prices start at $33,195 including destination and freight charges for the entry-level Work Truck trim level.
