2022 Chevrolet Silverado Gets Even Smarter and Tougher

2022 Chevrolet Silverado Gets Even Smarter and Tougher | Fort Stockton, TX

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the smartest, toughest, and most capable trucks available — and now it’s refreshed and better than ever for 2022.

New for 2022, the Silverado boasts a more powerful standard 2.7-liter turbo engine, and the available 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel can tow an extra 4,000 pounds (for a total of 13,300 pounds).

The new-look exterior of the 2022 Silverado includes new grille and front fascia designs to go with available daytime running lamps with animated light sequences that activate when you approach the truck or walk away from it.

Inside, the 2022 Silverado is available with a new 13.4-inch touch screen and 12.3-inch digital cluster, plus built-in, voice-activated access to convenient features like Google Assistant and Google Maps. The center console has also been redesigned to be more useful.

For the first time ever, the Silverado will be available with cutting-edge Super Cruise driving tech. This system even lets you tow a trailer while driving hands-free, and it’s fully integrated with the Silverado’s many other advanced towing features.

Perhaps most exciting of all, there’s an all-new ZR2 off-road trim in the 2022 Silverado lineup. This truck delivers 420 horsepower with its 6.2-liter V8, comes equipped with a specially tuned suspension and Multimatic DSSV™ dampers, and shows off rugged features like a skid plate package and 33-inch off-road tires.

You won’t have to wait much longer to experience the upgraded 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500—we’re expecting it to arrive this spring here at Amistad Motors in Fort Stockton, Texas.

Chevrolet Silverado Tailgate | Fort Stockton, TX

Whether you are at the jobsite, out on an outdoor adventure, or tinkering on DIY projects, everything is easier with the 2021 Silverado 1500.  

Trailering tech for 2021

The trailering length indicator reveals obstacles in the way when you’re trying to change lanes. You’ll be warned with a jack-knife alert if the connection between the 1500 and the trailer is misaligned. It is easier to hitch gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailers with the new cargo bed zoom view and bed hitch guidance, new features part of the enhanced cargo bed view. Rear side view enhancement means you’ll get a better perspective of what’s on the right and left sides of your truck when you’re moving backwards.

Increased capacities

Two engines offer increased towing capacities on the 2021 Silverado 1500. On the crew cab/short box model powered by the 2.7-liter turbo engine, you’ll have a towing capacity of 9,300 pounds. The regular cab/long box can tow 9,600 pounds. With the 3.0-liter Duramax® turbodiesel engine under the hood, the 2021 Silverado 1500 can tow an extra 1,900 pounds.

Versatile tailgate

The Multi-Flex Tailgate features six functions and can handle a weight of 375 pounds. You can configure the tailgate using your key fob or directly at the tailgate.

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is available now here at Amistad Motors in Fort Stockton, Texas.

2020 Silverado Diesel Knocks Out the Competition

2020 Silverado 1500 Diesel - Fort Stockton, TX

With the new Duramax® turbo-diesel engine, you can enjoy the best of both worlds in your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — mighty towing power and impressive fuel economy.

This engine, a 3.0-liter inline-six, cranks out 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, Silverado diesel models can tow up to 9,300 pounds and handle a payload of up to 1,870 pounds.

The Duramax® turbo-diesel is just as efficient as it is strong. In recent testing by the EPA, two-wheel-drive Silverado diesel models achieved 23 mpg in the city and an outstanding 33 mpg on the highway.* Four-wheel-drive models got 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.*

Compare those numbers to the Silverado’s diesel competitor, the Powerstroke-equipped Ford F-150. The 2WD diesel F-150 gets just 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg, and the 4WD model gets only 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Not only does the Silverado 1500’s diesel engine top the competition, it also delivers better fuel efficiency than many family cars, including the Toyota Camry and Subaru Legacy.

The diesel-equipped 2020 Silverado 1500 will be arriving soon at Amistad Motors, where you can experience its capabilities for yourself with a test drive.
