The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has long been a powerful, capable pickup truck. Now it’s getting even more impressive, thanks to the refreshed 2022 Silverado. This version features advanced technology options, improved towing capabilities, and sharply updated styling.
New for 2022, the Silverado receives an off-road ZR2 trim. The ZR2 comes loaded with features like Multimatic DSSV™ dampers, a tuned suspension, Terrain Mode with one-pedal rock crawl capabilities, and a skid plate package.
One of the most impressive available features on the 2022 Silverado is Super Cruise. This technology will be available on the High Country model and allows hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles of freeways across North America.
The new standard engine on the 2022 Silverado is the 2.7-liter Turbo High-Output engine. This year, it has 20 percent more torque and has an improved maximum trailering rating of 9,500 pounds. Engineers improved its eight-speed automatic transmission with adjustments to the shifting schedule that make it smoother and more refined.
With an elevated exterior design, the 2022 Silverado will make a bold statement wherever it goes. All Silverado models feature a new front design with lower headlamps. Some models come with wing-shaped daytime running lights.
Design updates extend to the interior with new materials. The cabin is more spacious and has a more premium look and feel with its available, bold 13.4-inch touch screen. Vertical lines have been replaced with horizontal elements that have a floating feel. This helps the Silverado feel more spacious.
The 2022 Silverado will arrive this spring at Greenwood Chevrolet in Fort Meade, Florida. Until then, we’re here to answer any questions you have about this excitingly refreshed truck.
The 2020 Impala has the most room of current Chevy sedans. Its rear seat sports a generous 39.8 inches legroom. The Malibu is also a good pick, with a comparable 38.1 inches of room in the back.
SUVs – Equinox and Traverse
For two-row SUVS, the Equinox offers the most space to stretch out, with 39.9 inches of rear legroom. But the 2020 Blazer and 2021 Trailblazer have almost similar numbers with 39.6 inches and 39.4 inches in the rear, respectively.

As the pickup truck segment becomes more and more competitive, choosing the right model for your needs is harder than ever. If you’ve been looking for a vehicle to tow your camper or boat around Ft. Meade, consider the Chevrolet Colorado or Silverado 1500, both of which were recently named to U.S. News’ list of the best trucks for towing.
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado
With a maximum towing capability of 7,700 pounds (the best of any compact pickup), it’s no surprise that U.S. News included the 2020 Colorado on its list. The publication’s editors were particularly fond of its available 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine, which puts out an impressive 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Alongside its remarkable performance, it also provides an EPA-estimated 30 mpg.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
You’d have to look extremely hard to find anything U.S. News’ Nick Kurcsewski didn’t love about the 2020 Silverado 1500. Dubbing it “the light-duty truck towing champion,” he raved about its 13,400-pound towing capacity, 15 available camera views, and ability to crush the Ford F-150’s specs by triple-digits.

In 2019, iSeeCars.com analyzed over 15.8 million cars in 2019 to find out the longest-lasting car brands. Their sole aim was to figure out which makes and models had made it past the 200,000-mile mark on the odometer. The study then ranked vehicles and brands by the percentage of vehicles still on the road after 200,000 miles.
iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly cited “truck-like SUVs and pickup trucks” as the vehicles most likely to last. This category includes the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Suburban.
Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban
Both of these full-size SUVs ranked high on the chart of overall highest-ranking vehicles. The Chevrolet Suburban came in with a rating of 4.9 percent, while the Tahoe was 4.1 percent. The industry average for vehicles overall was only 1 percent, and the industry average for all SUVs was even smaller at 0.9 percent.
Chevrolet Silverado 1500
In the Longest-Lasting Pickup Truck category in the iSeeCars study, 2.0 percent of the vehicles still on the road after passing the 200,000-mile mark are Chevy Silverado 1500 models. This puts them above the segment average of 1.8 percent.
When it came to the longest-lasting brands, Chevrolet came in at 4th place overall, with 1.4 percent of vehicles on the road over 200,000 miles hailing from the bowtie brand.
