The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 recently received several upgrades that have increased its capability and versatility. The light-duty pickup truck also received an upgrade to its interior cabin thereby raising its status within the truck segment. As one of Chevrolet’s most popular pickups, the Silverado 1500 has continued to receive updates that have been focused on increasing its performance and capability. Chevrolet has also started work on an all-electric Silverado 1500 which will compete with others like the Ford F-150 Lightning. Since there is some time before the official debut of the 2024 Silverado EV, we thought we’d take a look at the 2022 Chevy Silverado and detail three reasons why consumers should consider it.
- The 2022 Chevy Silverado Offers Impressive Performance
One of the first reasons to consider the 2022 Chevy Silverado is its performance capabilities. The light-duty pickup truck arrives with several powerful engine options. These include a 2.7L turbo high-output, a 5.3L EcoTec V8, a 6.2L EcoTec V8, and a Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel. The 2.7L delivers 310 horsepower and 430lb-ft of torque. The 5.3L delivers 355 horsepower and 383lb-ft of torque while the 6.2L offers 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. Finally, the 3.0L delivers 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The 3.0L also provides up to 13,300 pounds of towing capacity and up to 2280 pounds of payload.
- The 2022 Chevy Silverado Has Off-Road Capability
Another reason to consider the 2022 Silverado is its off-road capability. When equipped with the ZR2 trim, the Silverado offers unparalleled off-road capability and versatility. The off-road trim comes equipped with a 420 horsepower 6.2L V8 engine and 33-inch off-road tires. The light-duty pickup truck also has multimatic spool-valve dampers and a 31.9-degree approach angle to go with its steel front bumper. The ZR2 trim offers large underbody aluminum skid plates so that owners stay protected when going over tough terrain. There’s also a 2-speed transfer case with Terrain mode.
- The 2022 Chevy Silverado Has an Updated Interior
The third and most significant reason to consider the 2022 Silverado is its updated interior cabin. Chevrolet redesigned the light-duty pickup giving it a new dashboard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. There’s also a 13.4-inch touchscreen that features Google Assistant integration along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The touch screen offers voice recognition and a navigation interface. Aside from the technology, the updated Silverado offers a two-tone leather upholstery with open-pore wood trim. There are also driver assist and safety features like Super Cruise, forward collision alerts, blind-spot monitoring, and emergency braking. At a starting MSRP of $33,800 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Chevy Silverado proves to be an impressive and highly capable pickup truck that’s worth considering.
