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.
Updated trailering tech, greater capacity, and a Multi-Flex Tailgate position the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 as the most capable vehicle for work and play. 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
