There's a new kid on the block…or is there? The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited is a 2022 model, but then what does that make the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500? It's a little complicated, but here's the deal: the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 (sans "Limited") is the updated version of Chevy's half-ton truck. However, after the supply chain and shipping challenges experienced by manufacturers all over the world, Chevrolet decided to continue building the popular 2021 full-sized pickup as a "Limited" edition for 2022. Therefore, the 2022 Silverado 1500 Limited is going to mirror the 2021 Silverado 1500. It's like a Chevy bonus round!
What's included with the Limited version, then? It starts with some seriously high-performing engine options, capability, and features that make it a handy truck to have in any scenario and trims that put the cherry on top of this Silverado sundae. You can expect a few upgrades to, including a new High-Output Turbo base engine. Take a look at what the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited has in store for you.
The Silverado 1500 Limited is designed to work hard; therefore, Chevy has provided drivers with a full range of engine options that can help drivers get things done. This allows drivers to choose the engine option that makes the most sense for their driving style, as well as their regular trailering and payload needs. While you won’t find the old V6 in the 2022 lineup, this just makes the Silverado Limited an even more capable work truck.
The standard engine for much of the lineup is Chevrolet's trusted 2.7L turbo, which has been upgraded to provide more power and performance for 2022. The result is a more efficient pickup truck, with rear-wheel drive models achieving 19 miles per gallon on the city streets and 22 miles per gallon on the highway. Those numbers drop slightly to 17 miles per gallon city and 20 miles per gallon highway when four-wheel drive is selected. With 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque, this engine is on duty all of the time.
Standard on the LTZ, LT Trail Boss, and High Country trims–and an available upgrade for the LT and RST–is the 5.3L EcoTec3 engine, which supplies 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Offered with an 8-speed or 10-speed automatic transmission depending on trim, this engine manages to be aligned in efficiency with the turbo, providing up to 16 miles per gallon in the city and 21 miles per gallon on the highway.
The Duramax/Chevy tradition continues with a 3.0L Turbo-Diesel inline-6 engine. Providing 277 horsepower and a mighty 460 lb-ft of torque, this engine is equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission as well as auto stop/start technology. The result is a truck that can get up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway and can also tow up to 9,300 pounds.
Chevy's celebrated 6.2L EcoTec V8 is also available on several trims. Providing 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, this engine can tow up to 13,300 pounds when properly equipped. It also puts the "oo" back into "vroom," with a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of about 5.5 seconds. No matter which trim you choose, the 6.2L V8 also comes standard with four-wheel drive, making sure you can put all of its power to the road.
"Capability" is a big word in the world of full-size pickup trucks. Trucks generally don't just have one job to do, but a whole day's worth of chores to accomplish before they can have any fun. The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited is spectacularly equipped to handle a wide variety of tasks. Three cab sizes are available: Crew, Double, and Regular cab. The crew cab can be paired with the 69.9-inch short bed or the 79.4-inch standard bed. The double cab is matched with the standard bed, while the regular cab has a 98.1-inch long bed.
The bed offers up to 89.1 cubic feet of cargo space and comes with 12 standard tie-downs. The available power tailgate makes accessing your load easier than ever, even if you have your hands full. Another feature that makes the 2022 Silverado 1500 Limited awfully attractive for any job is the Multi-Flex tailgate. With six different positions, drivers can create a work surface, full-width step, and adjust the load stop depending on the cargo.
The Silverado 1500 Limited also has a serious focus on towing, with an available array camera positioned in and around the trailer, vehicle, and even the hitch or connection. With up to 15 different camera views, drivers will be able to have a clear picture of what's going on on either side and behind the trailer and truck. Whether your focus is on how much you can tow or how much you can stow, the 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited is a fantastic option for taking care of all of your business.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited is offered in eight different trims, providing a full range of options and opportunities. Are you looking for a straight-laced truck that's going to get the job done? The Work Truck is the Silverado's base trim, yet it's not all business. In addition to vinyl or cloth seating and an easy-clean rubberized floor, it has the basic creature comforts, as well, such as a 7-inch touchscreen that operates an Apple CarPlay/Android Auto-compatible infotainment system.
The Custom trim adds more features, such as power-operated windows and cruise control. The Custom Trail Boss adds the Z71 Off-Road Package, which gives the Silverado an Autotrac 2-speed transfer case, standard four-wheel drive, and automatic locking rear differential, giving it an advantage when the paved road ends. The LT announces its arrival with a splash of chrome and unlocks a larger array of features and options for drivers to select to make the drive a little cozier. Stepping up, the RST is the tech-forward trim, with Keyless Open and Start and LED exterior lights.
Of the three most luxurious trims, the LT Trail Boss is the most rugged, thanks to its 2-inch factory lift and all the features of the Z71 Off-Road Package. Inside, bucket seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are just the first signs that this is a more elegant way to travel muddy trails. The LTZ serves as the corner office on the road, with features that include perforated leather upholstery, advanced trailering technology, and enhanced technology.
If the LTZ is the corner office, the High Country is the executive board room. From the high-intensity LED headlights and two-tone bronze/chrome finish, it's easy to see the High Country coming, but it might be difficult to persuade yourself to leave. Inside, drivers will find heated and ventilated seats along with a Bose premium audio system. A full suite of driver assistance features, like front and rear park assist, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Regardless of whether you're looking for simplicity or revel in having all the bells and whistles, there's a Chevy Silverado Limited that matches your wants and needs. Chevy also offers an abundant array of optional packages and add-on features that can enhance the performance aspect you need most, from convenience features to advanced trailering tools.
