The spy photos of the recently caught 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD reveals extensive updates. From information by many websites, changes will involve a refreshed exterior and interior styling, along with several other updates.
Also, expect more amenities on the upper trims and the same powertrains as before. This model is rare in a crowd of pickup trucks, and it offers both gasoline and diesel engine. Both powertrains are powerful enough to allow Chevrolet Silverado HD to tow a maximum amount of 35,000 pounds.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD Exterior
The prototype that is recently caught testing is wearing a significant amount of camouflage. The entirely front fascia is covered, including the hood, front fenders, and the entire rear end, tailgate, and taillights.
Upfront, as we can see, the forthcoming 2022 Chevy Silverado HD will get an all-new fascia. That means it will adopt the latest Bow Tie brand’s latest and the two-tiered lighting setup, as we saw son the newer Blazer. The same design language is present on the regular Silverado pickup. The camo makes it difficult to see what is exactly changed. Overall, the latest pickup truck features thin LED headlights and daytime running lights (DRL). On the back, as many reported, General Motors will offer the GMC MultiPro tailgate, but under the MultiFlex (or Multi-Flex) name.
Interior Will Include Significant Changes
The interior of the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD is where the most significant changes will reside. This model hosts a very spacious cabin that can place comfortably all passengers.
According to many websites, the next-generation pickup truck will feature an identical revised center stack as the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban models. Overall, it’s clear that Chevrolet is looking to eliminate any potential criticism of the Silverado HD with this update. Besides, driver aids will also be expanded with many new features.
The newest 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD will use the same powertrain as the predecessor. The best of all is that this model offers both gasoline and diesel engine. The base engine is still a 6.6-liter gasoline V8 that makes 400 hp, and it generates 464 lb-ft of torque.
As you probably know, the 6.0-liter engine is no longer available. Generally, diesel is the most popular option among pickups. So, the Chevy offers a 6.6-liter V8 turbo diesel that can produce 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while gasoline still uses 6-speed automatic transmission. Many believe that the upcoming model would gain more torque for 2022 and better towing capacity. The current Silverado HD can tow up to 35,500 pounds.
2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD Release Date and Price
The updated 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD will be in the range of $37,000. As you can see, it is a small jump in price compared to the outgoing model.
Moreover, crossing all trims to the range-topping High Country model, the price will jump to $65,000. The latest Chevy Silverado HD should introduce more updates than before. As we heard, the whole heavy-duty lineup of trucks will go on sale later this year.
