2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTD Release Date & Price
You might have seen the story of a Chevy Silverado getting swept up by a tornado earlier in the week, or the video. The truck was eventually able to drive, but it was not going to be very drivable. Fort Worth-based Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet heard about the story and decided to gift the young man, who had saved money to buy his truck from his dad (then lost it), with a new vehicle. Riley received the truck on Saturday, March 26th.
This was right in time for him to start his new job at Whataburger on Monday. The tornado struck him as he was returning from an interview at a fast-food restaurant. Riley was also presented with a $15,000 check in addition to the new wheels. The dealership also donated a staggering $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund in order to assist those who were affected by the EF-2 tornado that caused 14 miles of destruction according to Chevy’s Facebook post.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTD Model
It is important to note that the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado Leon received was an LTD model. This means that it is not the refreshed Silverado from the same model year. The Silverado LTD filled the gap in the time left by COVID-19-related delays. Dealers can order the refreshed 2022 Silverado and configure it on the Chevrolet website. Highlighted by the go-anywhere ZR2 engine, several powertrain upgrades, and a premium interior, as well as the computing power of GM Global B’s electrical architecture, the Chevrolet website allows you to place an order for the new Silverado.
