The 2022 Silverado Get’s A New 13.4-inch Interior Screen
The 2022 Chevy Silverado pickup truck has been refashioned in more ways than one. The new kid in town brings a slew of changes and advancements over its 2021 predecessor and the 2022 Silverado Limited trim. The highlighting feature among these improvements is an interior design that has been reworked from top to bottom and involves a new 13.4-inch infotainment screen.
This standard new and larger infotainment technology is geared on 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models, like the LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and High Country. The 13.4-inch gadget is set to come our way and act as a replacement for the 8-inch screen previously featured on the 2019’s to the interim period of 2022’s Limited models. The new and exciting interior setup also involves wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, together with built-in tech features from Google, like Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.
As you can see from the picture below, the larger front-row screen expands horizontally across the dashboard and is split in half, with the left side of the display dominated by virtual user interface buttons, and the right encompassing features regarding the directions and map. Additionally, there is a physical Home button that sits at the left of the volume knob, along with a set of USB ports (also involving one USB-C port) in the center of the stack located to the right of the climate controls.
On its own, the screen is fixed with a “floating” design that carries it out of the center stack, while also implementing an air vent by the left side of the driver’s seat, as well as a storage bin above and in the back of the screen.
For the time being, there hasn’t been anything announced for other models, like the WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss. One should know that these trims have been previously geared as a standard with a 7-inch screen for the 2022-interim Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited.
Surplus updates that you’ll find noteworthy for this upcoming 2022 revamped model year include a new 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster, which is geared as standard on all restyled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models furnished with the tuned up interior design. Furthermore, buyers will have access to General Motor’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise driver-assist system, found on the High Country trim level. This particular model will come with assisted trailering capabilities and the luxury that you’ll already come to know and love.

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a mean and aggressive pickup that earns its props for its off-road capabilities. The midsize pickup’s spool valve shocks are serious executors of their job, while the underside is geared up to be able to tackle more difficult situations and increase function. The high-quality Colorado model is just what the doctor ordered on a nice off-roading day, and the optional turbodiesel engine isn’t too shabby either. Now it appears that the automaker wants to implement this work of genius on its full-size 2022 Silverado, which would move a step above the Trail Boss trim in the lineup.
It’s questionable whether this upcoming Silverado ZR2 will increase in its strength, but decrease in its speed, or perhaps get the best of both worlds. For the moment, we’ll have to wait until the automaker releases the engine specs, especially because it’s certain that it will have particular features that will be unlike many pick-ups on the market, if not all of them.
One thing that should be expected is that the shock absorbers of the Colorado’s Multimatic-acquired Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve play a key role, as they make way for highly accurate damping control, better cooling, and increased travel. In the Colorado, there is an extra spool valve that is only involved during very large suspension movements. Altogether, the dampers perform better over a vast range of conditions rather than a conventional shock, and that’s whether it’s on or off-road.
Elements that make the Colorado ZR2 stand out are the elevated lift, augmented armor, rock sliders, and re-shaped bumpers to boost angles for approach and departure. There is also a toughened fully-boxed frame, along with its standard front and rear locking differentials. It’s certain that the Silverado ZR2 will have a better lift in contrast to the Trail Boss, brawnier skid plates, and similar number treatment as its miniature family member. The extra frame support may or may not be needed. Judging from Chevrolet’s teaser video, it seems that Silverado ZR2 will keep its rear leaf spring setup, like the Colorado, opposed to employing the arrangement of the F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX.
As for the engine components of the Silverado ZR2, more than likely the regular L87 6.2-liter V-8 that produces a healthy 420 hp and 460 lb-ft will be used, and will still be a worthy competitor against the Ram Rebel’s 5.7-liter.
One should know that the Colorado ZR2 also offers a Duramax turbo diesel option, and if the automaker wants, it can also offer the Silverado ZR2 with that powertrain’s larger sibling: the highly effective Duramax I-6 turbodiesel. Though it only produces 277 horsepower it makes up for it with 460 lb-ft of torque, and also has excellent fuel economy figures.
We should know more about what Chevrolet has in store for its truck enthusiasts by this fall but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall is selling vehicles in various shapes and sizes from the automaker such as the Silverado and the Colorado trucks.

GM’s CEO Comments On The Upcoming EV Silverado
General Motors recently conducted a Q1 financial report with investors, during which a Deutsche Bank analyst had specific questions regarding the brand’s Silverado EV. This prompted CEO Mary Barra to briefly give some insights about its highly anticipated truck.
“And again, we have incredible know-how in this company and how to do full-sized trucks and we’re taking that into an EV-propelled vehicle, and that I think is going to give us a winning formula. I’m excited to share that vehicle with everyone because it’s just stunning,” Barra commented.
Barra also added that GM expects to have a strong demand for its upcoming electric Silverado. She thinks that the Utilium platform could aid the company in obtaining leadership in the market.
Last month, Chevrolet confirmed rumors regarding the Silverado EV, as they plan on constructing the model apace with the GMC Hummer EV at the company’s Detroit-Hamtramck Factory Zero facility. Both trucks will reside on the Ultium platform, and the aim is for the green Silverado to have a range of about 400 miles or 644 kilometers.
“The vehicles coming from Factory Zero will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles,” said GM President Mark Reuss when announcing the Silverado EV. “The GMC Hummer EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”
At the current moment, there is no word as to the arrival date of the electrified Silverado. However, seeing how it proceeds on a different platform than the gasoline model, it leaves room for significant styling changes between the two trucks.
Furthermore, GM is investing $2.2 billion into the Detroit-Hamtramck facility to develop the site into a major center for the company’s electric vehicle production.
More Fun Facts
- Chevrolet’s first full-size electric truck won’t just be for public consumption, as both retail and fleet versions will be made available.
- GM claims that you won’t have to worry about spending so much time charging and for only a few miles, as it’s expected for the upcoming Silverado to deliver 400 miles on a full charge.
- As previously stated, America’s powerhouse automaker is embracing the “Made In The U.S.A” slogan by building the EV truck at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant, previously known as the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. This is the company’s first EV-only assembly plant, and not only will it produce the Silverado and the Hummer, but also the Cruise Origin, which is an upcoming self-driving vehicle.

Everyone who loves the Chevrolet Silverado can attest to its strength and comfortable ride; that’s what has helped Chevy regain its spot as the second-best seller of pickups in 2020. For those that are keeping score, Chevrolet has only had one end of the year finish that didn’t see Chevrolet finish in the top two spots. (Ram just got lucky in 2019!) Well, the news for the upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado shows major updates that will continue to shape the pickup towards what owners are hoping for. The latest spy shots show a similar Silverado that looks agile, but as powerful as ever. The changes can be spotted with a new tailgate and other updates. Let us break down the upcoming changes for the famed Silverado pickup truck.
Changes Coming To the 2022 Silverado
Cars.com gave high marks for the Silverado earlier this year, but we’re certain that 2021 will show the Chevrolet brand taking home even more recognition for its engineering. It could be thanks to the reshaping of the vehicle that includes an all-new fascia and a new two-tiered lighting setup that is found on the 2022 model year. The design of the exterior includes a new thin LED accent and daytime running lights at the top of the fascia, with the primary headlight element mounted slightly lower. The cab of the Silverado looks to be the same as the previous model year, but a new bed step might be added from its 2020 Silverado heavy-duty models.
More On the Silverado Refresh
The latest spy photos do not show the interior, but we expect changes inside. The all-new fourth-generation Silverado came out in 2019, but its interior was lackluster compared to the competition for some buyers. The consumers will always be right and Chevrolet listened to its base to revamp the cockpit. GM Authority has said the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado will gain a revised center stack similar to the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have received. We will have to wait and see how the Silverado looks inside, but from what we are hearing, we are sure its going to appease the fans of the Chevy brand, as every great vehicle refresh does.
