Review

As it pertains to full-size pickup trucks, brand loyalty is paramount. And the 2022 Chevy Silverado provides its loyal supporters with things to become enthusiastic about. The 2022 Silverado snaps back with a stylish cabin as well as a novel self-driving attribute that is compatible with a trailer.

The Chevy’s myriad of motor alternatives is as robust as ever, from the strong turbocharged four to the torque-fuelled 6-cylinder petrol to the robust 6.2-litre V8. Moreover, its towing capacity caps out at a staggering 13,300lbs and comes with several technological trailer assists.

What’s Expected for 2022?

Chevy has made substantial modifications to the Silverado for 2022. All models have revised fronts, however, just the LT trim and up to possess a novel inside composition. In addition to superior cabin materials as well as a more contemporary design, these trims offer a 12.3-inch virtual gauge collection along with a large 13.4-inch touch panel infotainment system.

Each Silverado comes standard with the most operative safety attributes, and the up-to-date High Country trim can be chosen with Super Cruise, GM’s no-hands riding tech.

Cost and Which Trim to Purchase

The base-level Work Truck, as well as the Custom models, are ideal for individuals in the trades and those on a tight budget. The LT trim is where the more opulent interior becomes apparent, and we recommend it. We’d also customize our Silverado with the addition of the crew cab and conventional-length bed for maximal cargo and rider room.

But on the low end of the spectrum with the Work Truck, you’re looking at a starting price of $39,948. The LT is where things become a little more luxurious and starts at $47,748. And on the higher end, represented by the High Country, pricing starts at $68,348.

Motor, Performance, and Transmission

A scope of motors—including a turbocharged 4-cylinder, two V8s, along with a Duramax petrol 3.0-litre inline-six—entails there’s a Silverado 1500 to handle any task. Out of the two eight-cylinder motors, the 420hp 6.2-litre is the fastest, thrusting the Silverado High Country to 60mph in only 5.4 seconds. In contrast, the tinier 355 hp 5.3-litre required 6.1 seconds.

The Turbocharged 2.7-litre four-cylinder now possesses 420pf of torque, which can assist in towing jobs. The petrol-charged Silverado impressed us with the motor’s seamless and silent functionality. Each variation of the Silverado felt tinier than its size lets on.

Handling on the truck is remarkably agile, and the brakes offer a strong and soothing response. If you’re searching for a more robust half-ton Silverado, you will love the Trail Boss trim. It provides a 2.0-inch lift, marvellous tires, and other features that make the path less travelled a simpler and more enjoyable ride.

Capacity for Towing and Payload

A maximum towing capacity of 13,300lbs puts this half-ton Silverado as a more than efficient hauler. It knocks the Ram 1500’s maximum tow ranking by over 500lbs. Chevy’s highest tow ranking is reachable with both the petrol motor and the 6.2-litre V-8, however, the 5.3-litre variation can still manage up to 11,500lbs.
Trims with the turbocharged four-cylinder can pull as much as 9500lbs. The Chevy truck’s powertrains are less important as it pertains to the payload, which spans from 1870 to around 2280lbs.

Fuel Economy

The Silverado 1500 offers some diverse powertrain options that are more systematic than others. The discretionary petrol is the most cost-effective, with EPA calculations of as much as 10.227 L/100 km and 7.128 L/100 km in the city. With AWD, its freeway ranking dips down to 9.047 L/100 km.

However, the gas-utilizing turbo-four with AWD is ranked at about 11.761 L/100 km city and 22 freeway. The most sparing 5.3-litre V-8, AWD powertrain is ranked at 14.701 L/100 km in the city and then 10.692 L/100 km on the freeway; our real-world assessing unveiled that it was more coherent than the Silverado’s tiniest motor, the turbocharged four-cylinder in our assessing the V-8 reached 11.201 L/100 km.

Interior, Cargo, and Comfort

From the barebones Work Truck trim to the lavished High Country, the Silverado can be designed in many fashions. Base trims give nothing but the bare necessities, including on-the-fly accommodating front seats, locks, windows, and seating. But, beginning on the LT model, the cabin is increasingly dapper due to a stylish dashboard composition with a 12.3-inch virtual gauge collection and a large middle touch panel.

Inside the High Country is particularly attractive with its leather padding and handmade woodwork. Additionally, the crew cab offers a large back seat with commodious headroom.

Infotainment and Connectedness

Each Silverado 1500 is armed with a touch panel infotainment system that’s compatible with Android Auto, mobile hotspot, in addition to Apple CarPlay. The knobs make connecting with additional systems effortless, and we loved the screen’s quick responses to our touch inserts.

The LT model and up offers a parallel 13.4-inch touch panel with bolstered attributes like Amazon Alexa incorporation, Google-powered voice assistant, wireless Apple CarPlay, and more.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Attributes

Each Silverado comes standard with a splendid index of conventional driver-assistance automation, and it can fit with a plethora of towing assists that will make the process of pulling and hooking a trailer seamless.

The superior High Country can also be armed with Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free-driving automation that Chevy says works even while hauling a trailer.
