Chevrolet to Make Changes to 2022 Silverado Engine

Thursday, December 23rd, 2021

Chevrolet will be adding a new engine to the 2022 Chevy Silverado. This comes after the full-size pickup received a pretty significant makeover for the 2022 model year. This makeover included an improved cabin, a new ZR2 off-road trim, and a boost in torque. Chevrolet has been focusing on producing electric vehicles, similar to most other automakers, but it’s good to see them updating their current lineup. The all-electric Silverado has been teased for a while, but Chevrolet is making sure that it has all the capabilities it needs to compete with competitors like Ford and Tesla. For now, we’ll be focusing on the 2022 Silverado and seeing what changes Chevrolet has in store for the new model year. We’ll still be keeping our ears open for more information about new models, but the Silverado is one of Chevy’s best-selling pickups so the changes should be pretty substantial. 

2022 Chevy Silverado to Get New Engine

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado recently received a substantial update and makeover. The full-sized pickup saw an increase in its interior cabin quality along with a new off-road-oriented trim, the ZR2. The 2022 Silverado also saw a boost in its torque. Now Chevrolet will be adding a new engine for the pickup. This will be the turbocharged 2.7L four-cylinder which is set to replace the base 4.3L V6. The new engine apparently impressed Chevrolet engineers so much that they had no choice but to offer it to consumers. 

The 2022 Silverado will now come equipped with a 2.7L four-cylinder engine. The LT Trail Boss trim will also see its 5.3L V8 engine replaced with this new four-cylinder. The new 2.7L generates less horsepower than the V8 (310 versus 355), but the changes in output allow it to have more torque (420 versus 383lb-ft) which helps improve towing capacity. This new engine will help improve the overall capability of the Silverado. The new engine also comes with an EPA rating of 19 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. Compared to the V8’s 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, the new 2.7L wins out both in terms of torque and fuel economy. 

Fans of the 2022 Silverado can expect to see the pickup on dealership lots in the Spring of 2022. Chevrolet has not commented on any price changes, but the automaker will still allow consumers to opt for a 3.0L turbo-diesel Duramax engine on the Trail Boss trim.

GM to Debut All-New Off-Road Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Chevy Silverado ZR2

General Motors (GM) is getting ready to show off its latest pickup, the all-new off-road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2. This release comes in the midst of a global transition to electric vehicles. Most automakers have been aiming to produce their own version of an electric vehicle. GM has been teasing the all-electric Chevy Silverado and rumors have been spreading about a potential electric Camaro. With the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, GM is hoping to ramp up excitement and anticipation for its future lineup. The debut of a fully electric pickup has garnered the most interest, but GM has been sure to keep any information under wraps. For now, the automaker is providing updates and adding new features to its current lineup. Until more information is released about other vehicles, we’ll have to stick to pure speculation. The automaker has released details about the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 however, so we’ll dive into the new updates.

All-New Off-Road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

GM unveiled the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 ahead of the NFL’S first game of the season between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. GM has enjoyed a lot of interest recently for its Silverado lineup, but this move to reach the greatest number of eyes was solid. According to the director of Chevrolet marketing Kelly MacDonald, about 60% of Silverado sales have been off-road-focused pickups. With so much interest in off-road capable pickups, it’s no wonder GM is updating its lineup. 

The all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be getting a new exterior design and several new features and technologies. GM will update the pickup’s exterior with slimmer headlights and a refreshed grille. These will help display the brand’s logo more prominently. The new designs are similar to those of the updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, both of which share the same platform as the Silverado. Inside the Chevy Silverado ZR2, consumers will note more technologies such as an e-shifter. A larger infotainment screen and heads-up display will also accompany the new pickup.

The last addition to the all-new Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be safety and driver-assist features. These will consist of lane-keep assist, lane departure alerts, forward collision alerts, and automatic emergency braking. GM will also be including its new Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system. This new system will use sensors, radars, and cameras to help drivers better navigate the road. Pricing for the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 has not been determined yet, however, the starting price for the Silverado lineup ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new pickup will most likely fall between these prices. Off-road pickups offer the function of a pickup with the versatility of an off-roader. GM is providing consumers with the best of both worlds. Consumers will be happy to see GM expanding and updating its lineup.
