Ford Benchmarking 2022 Chevy Silverado High Country

Ford and General Motors have been bitter rivals in the automotive world for over a century now, and as such, both have made a habit out of benchmarking each other’s vehicles. Of course, benchmarking is also a common practice in the automotive market as a whole, with different companies constantly working to stay ahead of the competition. In that regard, Ford Authority has spotted The Blue Oval benchmarking a number of GM vehicles in recent months, including the GMC Hummer EV, Chevy Tahoe PPV, and 2023 Corvette Z06, to name just a few. Now, we can add yet another vehicle to that list – this 2022 Chevy Silverado High Country, which was spotted towing a camper.

This 2022 Chevy Silverado represents the first year of a mid-cycle refresh for the longtime Ford F-150 competitor, ushering in a host of updates for the light-duty pickup. Those enhancements start on the outside, where the 2022 Silverado gets a revised front fascia and grille. These changes are capped off by the addition of three new exterior color options – Sand Dune, Dark Ash, and Glacier Blue Metallic.

Inside the cabin, the 2022 Silverado boasts a fully configurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as a 13.4-inch infotainment screen. In models with bucket seats, a new center console holds an available electronic shift controller, while additional options include GM’s Rear Camera Mirror, Head-Up Display, and Super Cruise hands-free highway driving feature.

This 2022 Chevy Silverado High Country – a more luxurious trim in the pickup’s lineup – also gets a host of additional goodies including open-pore wood trim, standard perforated leather seats, Bose premium audio system with stainless steel speaker grilles, and two new color choices – Jet Black or Nightshift Blue.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Why does Ford/Lincoln not offer a lot of bells and whistles as do GM family of vehicles,
    and how did they allow GM large SUVs to become larger than theirs?

      LoL it was a long time ago, but I seem to recall that when Expedition launched it was shorter than its GM competitors for a couple of years.

        RWFA, don’t use the word “recall” around Ford products. LOL

  2. Kelly Smith

    Why are more Government vehicles GMC/ CHEVY SUVs and not FORD/ LINCOLNS

    1. RWFA

      While it may be true or not I’m wondering how you came to this conclusion.

    More uber-expensive luxury editions. I wish Ford would spend their efforts on adding VALUE. For instance, why the hell can’t we get 4Auto on XLT’s??
