The Chevrolet Silverado enters 2022 with a wealth of new technology, a redesigned interior, and even the new ZR2 off-road-oriented trim level. Here’s a tour of what’s new on the 2022 Silverado.
ZR2 trim level
The off-road-ready ZR2 trim boasts a standard 420-horsepower engine that’s paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. This rugged truck boasts Multimatic dampers, custom-tuned springs, a unique off-road chassis, durable skid plates, and an exclusive set of 33-inch off-road tires.
The Silverado’s 2.7-liter Turbo High-Output engine gained some impressive enhancements for the latest model year. Now, it boasts a maximum trailering capacity of 9,500 pounds and a GM-estimated 420 lb-ft of torque — a 20 percent increase compared to last year. The 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel can now tow up to 13,300 pounds thanks to an updated chassis. That’s a 4,000-pound increase relative to previous models.
Super Cruise functionality
The 2022 Silverado offers enhanced Super Cruise technology with added trailering functionality. This innovation enables hands-free driving on over 200,000 miles of roads. It even allows for hands-free lane changes when you’re towing a trailer.
On the LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and High Country trim levels, the Silverado boasts a completely redesigned interior. Its horizontal instrument panel and new center console make the cabin more spacious and functional, while the new 13.4-inch touch screen puts your favorite tech tools right at your fingertips. This updated infotainment setup also includes smartphone connectivity and Google built-in, so you can easily access Google Play, Google Maps, and Google assistant.
