Customizable Trim Levels To Choose From

With nine trim levels to choose from, it’s easy to find a 2022 Chevy Silverado that matches your needs and style. Each trim level features a variety of customizations to aesthetics and performance, so selecting a model is just the first step to designing a Silverado that’s perfect for you. The nine trim levels are Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, ZR2, and the High Country. If you need a truck that’s built for tough jobs, then you might want to explore the Work Truck’s Durabed truck bed.

If you want a car that can handle off-road terrain with ease, then consider the Custom Trail Boss and its available DuraTrac off-road tires. For a truck that makes a bold statement with its exterior design, consider the all-chrome bumpers and center grille bar on the LT model. No matter which trim level you choose, every 2022 Silverado is equipped with a high-powered engine and incredible performance that makes all of your towing jobs a breeze.

Towing Capacity of the 2022 Silverado 1500

Chevy’s 2022 Silverado is a truck that’s built to handle all of your towing needs. Whether you’re headed to the lake with your family boat or bringing a camper out to the woods for a weekend of camping, the Silverado delivers top-tier performance.

This jaw-dropping performance comes with the Silverado’s optional 2022 Silverado Features and Towing Capacity3-liter turbo-diesel engine.

If you don’t need all 13,300 pounds of capacity, you can easily handle most towing jobs with the other three engine options. No matter what combination of trim levels and engines you choose, every 2022 Silverado can tow at least 9,00 pounds. With this level of performance coming standard across all customization options, you can design a Silverado that matches your style without worrying about sacrificing any important performance metrics.

Engine and Performance Specs

To deliver these impressive towing stats, the 2022 Chevy Silverado comes with a choice of four engines. If you’re looking to maximize towing capabilities, consider the Duramax 3-liter turbo-diesel engine with its 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. If you’d prefer a regular gasoline engine but still want explosive power, then the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is a great choice with its 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both engines deliver over 13,000 pounds of towing capacity, so they are an excellent choice for people with heavy payloads.

The other engine options include the 5.3-liter Ecotec3 V-8 that comes standard on the RSTLTZ, and High Country two-wheel-drive models. This impressive block of machinery offers 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.

It also boasts a towing capacity of 9,500 pounds and a priority oiling and cooling system that helps you take on the toughest jobs.

Modern Tech Features

The 2022 Silverado’s tech features don’t just deliver high-quality audio and navigation, they also actively monitor your payload to make all your towing jobs easier. The 12.3-inch control panel gives you access to all of your car’s important systems and provides a large screen for you to monitor the impressive array of camera angles the Silverado provides. With eight available cameras, you have 14 potential camera angles to view your car and trailer when on the highway. This impressive monitoring array combines with the trailer side blind-zone alert system to keep you constantly informed on your surroundings.

Safety You Can Trust

The 2022 Silverado delivers amazing towing capabilities, and it does so while foregoing none of the important safety features you can expect from a modern vehicle. The forward collision alert and automatic braking systems work together to warn you of potential impacts and apply the brakes in dangerous situations. Its lane-keep assist with lane departure warning system allows you to relax and enjoy the drive, even while towing your biggest loads. This system automatically turns your steering wheel to alert you when you’ve drifted between lanes, keeping you on track to reach your destination.

The following distance indicator and Intellibeam high beam assist systems keep your fellow drivers safe by alerting you when you are dangerously close to another car and toggling your high beams when they could reduce someone else’s visibility. Combined with the rear cross-traffic alert and rear camera mirror, your 2022 Silverado is able to constantly update you on your surroundings while keeping you out of harm’s way when you’re towing something.
