The name of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited is a little disingenuous because there’s very little at all that’s limited with this sensational full-size, light-duty pickup truck. This is a half-ton truck that boasts an industry-first power up/down tailgate, a best-in-class cargo volume of 89.1 cu.-ft., a max tow rating of 13,300 pounds, and 12 standard fixed tie-downs. The Silverado 1500 Limited can be all the truck you need for the construction site, school run, towing and hauling duties, the daily commute, shopping trips to the mall, weekend adventures in the wilderness. In fact, the Silverado can handle just about anything else you can think of doing on four wheels in and around Stanleytown, Danville, Rocky Mount, Greensboro, or anywhere else.
There are either six or eight different trim levels available to choose from in the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited lineup, depending on whether you opt for a rear-drive or four-wheel-drive variant. Rear-drive versions of the Silverado 1500 Limited come in entry-level WT (Work Truck), Custom, LT, RST, LTZ, and top-of-the-range High Country trim levels. However, if you decide that you want or need the extra capability of a four-wheel drive you then get to choose between WT, Custom, LT, RST, Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and range-topping High Country versions of the Silverado.
There are four engine options in the Silverado lineup this year and each of them makes a strong case for itself for covering different applications and the requirements of a wide range of buyers. The V-6 that was the Silverado 1500’s base powerplant for so long has now been dropped, but that’s great news because it now means that the 2.7-liter turbo-four that used to be an option is now the standard engine for WT, Custom, and LT versions of the 1500 Limited. The turbo-four puts out a very impressive 310 horsepower and 348 lb.-ft. of torque, but if that’s not enough for your needs the next engine is a 5.3-liter V-8 that develops 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque.
The third gas engine is the mighty 6.2-liter V-8 which ups the power ante to a magnificent 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, but if regular heavy towing duties are what you’re buying a truck for the available 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel with its 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. might be the right unit for you. The base 2.7 and the 5.3-liter V-8 send power to the wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, but 5.3-liter V-8 models can be upgraded to a 10-speed automatic that becomes the standard unit if you have the 6.2-liter or the turbodiesel in your truck.
A book that would rival War and Peace for size would probably be needed to cover all the ways you can configure and specify a new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited, especially as there could be some features available you might not have come across before and some that are not even available anywhere other than in GM trucks.
Even the base Silverado 1500 Limited WT comes with standard power features, climate control, auto stop/start, StabiliTrak stability control, six-speaker audio, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Multi-Flex Tailgate that’s available for the Silverado at every level with its six different functions for improved loading, unloading, and accessing the cargo bed is just one example of how this Chevy truck takes practicality to new levels of convenience. And if comfort and luxury are important factors in your buying decision, the High Country has that well covered with standard features that include a sensational Bose premium audio system, perforated genuine leather upholstery, wireless phone projection, and charging, and just about any other automotive feature you can think of to make this truck as comfortable and well-equipped as a luxury sedan.
The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited certainly looks the part from any angle, but it also offers levels of capability, power, performance, and flexibility that make it one of America’s favorite vehicles of any type or size. It can also be configured to be just about any truck you want or need it to be, so come and check it out for yourself with a test drive here at GR Chevrolet Buick GMC, 930 Fairystone Park Hwy, Stanleytown, VA.
