For plenty of drivers, trucks are always exciting, but when Chevrolet announces, “Everything that makes a Silverado a Silverado has been taken to the next level for 2022,” even the most mildly interested parties stand up and pay attention. While we don’t have all the details yet, we have just enough information to generate a good amount of buzz surrounding the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500. For years, drivers have appreciated the Silverado 1500 for its dependability and customizability. With a total of nine trims, four engine options, and plenty of optional packages to go around, Chevy drivers get the ultimate in driving enjoyment: the ability to make your truck your very own.
With the new updates for the 2022 edition, it appears that decisions about what you want your truck to be are about to get a lot harder and much more exciting. This new model year for the Silverado 1500 is showing itself to be a step above the rest. This is definitely a truck you are not going to want to miss out on.
Nine trims may seem excessive in this day and age, but you have to understand how serious choosing the right work partner can be. You need a truck that meets all of your needs and wants without being too little or too much. Therefore, having nine different available trims to start with gives drivers the choices they need without having to pile on expensive options and packages.
New for 2022 is the first-ever Silverado ZR2. With more and more vehicles offering off-road-ready adventure, this version of the Silverado steps up to take to the trails. Armed with a 6.2L V8 engine that provides 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the ZR2 also employs a 10-speed transmission with Electronic Transmission Range Selector to aid in hitting that sweet spot on varying terrain. An enhanced two-speed transfer case features Terrain Mode, too.
The exterior of the ZR2 is also ready for action. The front bumper has been designed with a higher approach angle of 31 degrees in mind, and both front and rear bumpers are made of enhanced steel to increase their durability in a variety of off-road territories. Skid plates have been added to the underside, and the ZR2 rides high on 33 inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory M/T tires.
While the ZR2 lays claim to off-road duty, the rest of the Silverado 1500 lineup promises to be equally thrilling. Starting with the 2022 model year, Chevy’s Super Cruise hands-free driving technology will be available as an option on the trim-topping High Country model. With over 200,000 miles of US and Canadian roadways mapped and stored in its database, Super Cruise can help drivers on the long haul - literally. Chevy has confirmed that Super Cruise can even be activated when towing, providing drivers with at least one less thing to worry about when trying to move heavy loads long distances.
Additionally, starting with the LT trim and above, the Silverado 1500 will be graced with a standard 13.4-inch diagonal touchscreen infotainment system. This is likely in response to the critics’ universal panning of the interior of the all-new Silverado launched in 2019. While the WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss trims do not receive the interior makeover, all trims above LT include a dash that’s built around the giant touchscreen and made with upscale materials. Those who have never thought of a pickup truck as the height of luxury will be amazed at the open-pore wood trim on the High Country models or the stainless steel speaker grilles in the LTZ and High Country. Bucket seats, an electronic shift lever, and an updated center console are all part of the appeal of the 2022 Silverado 1500.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is available with four different engine options. The 2.7L Turbo High Output is the standard offering for the WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST Double Cab, and LT Trail Boss, which should be proof enough that this is not your “standard” standard engine. Providing 310 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, this engine is ready to take you places and get things done.
Of course, no two jobs are exactly the same. For those who need a little more, the 5.3L Ecotec3 V8 engine provides 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes standard on the RST Crew Cab, LTZ, and High Country and can be optioned in on the trucks that come with the 2.7L engine version.
The ZR2 is the only model to feature the 6.2L Ecotec3 V8 engine as standard equipment, but drivers of the Custom Trail Boss, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country models can elect to drop this engine under the hood as an available option. Good for 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, this engine has plenty of capability and range. Whether you need to tow a lot, stow a lot, or head out to the great who-knows-where, the 6.2L engine has you covered.
It wouldn’t be fair to leave the diesel crowd behind, and the 3.0L Turbo-Diesel available on the Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country trims isn’t an afterthought but an absolute powerhouse. With 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, 4x4 vehicles equipped with this engine will cheerfully tow up to 13,300 pounds. This towing maximum is supremely increased from last year’s model, which topped out at 9,500 pounds. The secret? Chassis updates and a new-and-improved Max Trailering Package.
Starting off the comfort and convenience features is the enormous 13.4-inch touchscreen system accompanied by a driver-configurable 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Ford and Ram have limited their infotainment screens to 12 inches, which means the Silverado is definitely taking this “next level” claim very seriously. This is a perfect complement to the enhanced exterior elements and styling.
Chevrolet has confirmed that each 2022 Silverado 1500 will include the Chevy Safety Assist package as standard gear. This suite of safety and driver assistance technology includes Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, and IntelliBeam High Beam Assist. It’s also highly speculated that the new Silverado 1500 will include technology to make trailering safer and easier than ever before, especially given the newly raised towing maximum.
We also know for a fact that the interior will be more comfortable, fashionable, and tech-savvy than ever before, providing many drivers with the on-the-road office they’ve needed for a long time. We will see a premium Bose sound system onboard in the higher trims, and cabin storage will be abundant. With all of the new screens and upgraded technology, you are sure to love your driving experience behind the wheel of one of the 2022 Silverado models in any of the nine trims.
