We spanned both model years this week, finally getting in an updated 2022 Chevrolet Silverado (not the carryover 2022 Silverado LTD) with a much needed refresh inside, and covering the latest 2023 Toyota and Lexus models.
Recalls, new car prices, and other new cars news also rolled past the transom this week. Here’s what else we surfaced this week.
