How much does 2022 Silverado insurance cost?

Car insurance rates for the 2022 Chevy Silverado are expected to be similar to 2021 rates, with a minimal upward adjustment. Expect the cheapest rates to again be on the base Work Truck models and the highest rates to be on the High Country models.

However, one difference with insurance cost for a 2022 Silverado could be the release of Chevy’s new competitor to the Ram TRX and F-150 Raptor, the Silverado ZRX (or ZR2).

Details are limited on the Silverado ZRX specs at this point (including the badging since we’ve seen both ZRX and ZR2 speculations), but powertrains are expected to include the current 6.2 liter gas V8 or the 3.0 liter Turbo I6 diesel. Insurance cost for a Silverado ZRX is expected to be at the high end of the range, costing upwards of $1,900 per year for full coverage.

When should I insure my Silverado for just liability?

The point at which you insure your Silverado for liability insurance only is purely a personal decision. There is a general guideline that when the cost of comprehensive and collision insurance costs more than 10% of the vehicle value, it’s time to start thinking about removing it.

Chevrolet Silverado insurance rates by U.S. state

If that’s not enough rate data, we threw in a few more little nuggets of information just in case:

  • Increasing deductibles makes car insurance cheaper. Raising deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $232 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $450 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Low physical damage deductibles may be wasting money. Decreasing your deductibles from $500 to $250 could cost an additional $238 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $472 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
  • Earn a discount from your choice of occupation. Many car insurance companies offer policy discounts for earning a living in occupations like doctors, architects, nurses, high school and elementary teachers, college professors, members of the military, and other occupations. If your profession qualifies you for this discount, you may save between $47 and $145 on your yearly Silverado insurance cost, depending on your policy.
  • Rated driver gender affects the rate you pay. For a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, a 20-year-old man will have an average rate of $3,142 per year, while a 20-year-old female will get a rate of $2,332, a difference of $810 per year. Women get significantly cheaper rates. But by age 50, the rate for men is $1,438 and the female rate is $1,410, a difference of only $28.
  • It’s expensive to buy high risk insurance. For a 50-year-old driver, having to buy high-risk car insurance for a Chevy Silverado due to accidents and/or violations could raise rates by $1,874 or more per year.
  • Excellent credit scores get the best rates. In states that have regulations allowing a driver’s personal credit information to be used as an auto insurance rate factor, drivers who have credit scores over 800 could experience savings as high as $248 per year over a lower credit rating of 670-739. Conversely, a credit rating below 579 could cost up to $287 more per year.
  • Avoid driving violations to reduce rates. To pay the most affordable Silverado insurance rates, it’s necessary to drive safe. As few as two minor driving offenses could possibly increase Silverado insurance cost by as much as $418 per year.
  • Older drivers pay less than younger drivers. The difference in insurance rates for a Silverado between a 50-year-old driver ($1,438 per year) and a 30-year-old driver ($1,654 per year) is $216, or a savings of 13.1%.
