Chevrolet has revamped the 2022 lineup of Silverado vehicles with a broader body, complementing the truck’s bold exterior design. Every 2022 Silverado model comes with an updated grille with lower, more functional headlamps allowing you to drive with clarity and confidence. Higher trim levels offer more improvements to lighting like upgraded daytime running lamps, animated turn signals, and responsive sequences that automatically illuminate figures approaching the vehicle. The 2022 Silverado comes in black, Northsky Blue Metallic, Red Hot, Satin Steel Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Cherry Red Tintcoat, Oxford Brown Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Shadow Gray Metallic, and Summit White.
Silverado beats its competition in terms of storage capacity in the bed. Bed sizes vary depending on the Cab option you select. If you choose a Regular Cab model, your Silverado comes with an 8.1-footbed with 89.1 cubic feet of storage. Depending on your cargo needs, you can outfit Crew Cab Silverado trucks with either a 5.8-footbed or a 6.6-foot bed. Silverado beds also come with 12 tie-downs to protect your cargo and a motorized, Multi-Flex tailgate to make it even easier to load and unload your truck. All Silverado beds come with a dense steel floor that can withstand the weight of equipment, materials, and other work supplies.
WT and Custom models have the classic Silverado interior, but you’ll find a new, sleek interior design in all other trim levels beginning with the LT. The interior on these trims reflects the updated wider exterior to give you more space and control on the road. These trims also include a 13.4-inch infotainment screen, much larger than earlier models of the Silverado, and Google Assistant, an electronic assistant that responds to voice commands. The infotainment systems pair with Android and Apple smartphones.
Opt for the High Country trim for an interior that pairs rugged strength with luxury. The High Country comes with a high-quality open-pore wood console, comfortable leather seats, and hands-free Super Cruise for a peaceful driving experience. You can also choose between black and blue interior on the High Country for an interior that matches your personal style.
Cab options for the 2022 Silverado begin with the Regular Cab, which offers two doors and bench seating. Opt for the Double cab for the second row of seats and small rear doors. If you need maximum space for family, friends, or cargo, consider the Crew Cab, which comes with a spacious back seat and large rear doors.
You can choose from the following engines:
- 2.7L Turbo I4: 310 horsepower, 348 lb-ft of torque.
- 5.3L V8: 355 horsepower, 383 lb-ft of torque.
- 6.2L V8: 420 horsepower, 460 lb-ft of torque.
- 3.0L I6: 277 horsepower, 460 lb-ft of torque.
The Turbo I4 and V8 engines run on gasoline, while the 3.0L I6 takes diesel. The smallest engine, the 2.7L Turbo I4, has an 8-speed automatic transmission, but the rest of the engines have a 10-speed automatic transmission. All use both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive except for the 6.2L V8, which only uses four-wheel-drive. With the 2.7L Turbo I4, the Silverado can tow up 9,500 lbs, and towing capacity rises to 11,200 lbs with the 5.3L V8. The largest V8 and the I6 diesel engine are the best options for towing heavy lows, as they can both handle up to 13,300 lbs.
The quiet and durable 2.7L Turbo I4 is the truck’s base engine, used on the WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, LT Trail Boss, and RST. Each trim has different upgrade availability, but you could replace the Turbo I4 with another engine to meet your needs in most trims. The 5.3L V8 comes standard on LTZ and High Country models, and the 6.2L V8 comes standard on the off-road powerhouse ZR2.
