First Look 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500

January 29th, 2022 by

There’s something about an awesomely powerful and sexy truck that gets your heart racing a bit. And if you’re looking for the most powerful and sexiest, you don’t need to look any further than the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500.

Between the awesome performance specs and the amazing appearance, there’s really nothing not to love about this truck. That’s why we decided to highlight everything you need to know about this amazing truck here.

New Features for 2022

While there are not many new features for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500, that doesn’t mean the ones they did add aren’t worth checking out. They’ve made three changes to the Silverado 3500 lineup, all for the better. We’ve highlighted all three changes for you here.

  • Multi-Flex tailgate available for all trims

The Chevy Silverado 3500 is all about versatility and having the ability to add the Multi-Flex tailgate to every trim package only highlights that fact. This tailgate gives you more options than ever since you can quickly change it from a standard tailgate to a workstation, an entry step, or so much more.

  • Power seat available on the custom trim level

It’s not available on every trim level because you still can’t find it on the Work Truck trim level, but you can find it on every other trim package out there. That means you don’t need to spend more by upgrading to the next trim level if all you want is some power seats!

  • New exterior color – Greenstone Metallic

It might not seem like a major change, and it’s certainly all aesthetic, but one look at the Greenstone Metallic exterior and you’ll fall in love. It’s a great new addition and it’s certainly worth checking out before you settle on anything else.

Performance Specs

While there are some new features on the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500, what really sets it is the reliable returns. This truck is all about performance, and in that area, it delivers every step of the way. There are two engine options to choose from, and we’ll highlight the performance specs for both here.

6.6L Turbo V8 Diesel

If you’re looking for the king of performance, going with a diesel is a must. Below we’ve highlighted some of the most critical performance specs for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500. Keep in mind that all these specs represent a vehicle with the right equipment and not every Silverado 3500.

Torque 910 ft-lb @1,600 rpm
Horsepower 445
Towing Capacity 36,000 pounds
Maximum Payload 4,371 to 6,523 pounds

6.6L V8 Gasoline

Just because you want an awesome Chevy doesn’t mean you need to go with the diesel option. The standard engine option is a naturally aspirated 6.6L gasoline engine, and it pushes out some impressive performance specs all on its own.

Once again keep in mind that the following performance specs represent a properly equipped 2022 Silverado 3500, not every 3500 out there.

Torque 464 ft-lb @ 4,000 rpm
Horsepower 401
Towing Capacity 14,500 pounds
Maximum Payload 4,371 – 4,572 pounds
