Major updates for a vehicle can bring a lot of great new features, but it can also mean an increase in price, and you end up paying for new options that you might not really need. Fortunately, car companies like Chevrolet recognize when they have a good thing, so you get models like the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited, which is a holdover that offers the same amazing features as last year’s model rather than the newly updated 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 that is also available. While some people will be drawn to the new features available for this year, the Silverado Limited is a terrific option for a lot of drivers looking for a great truck.
There are four different engines available for the Silverado 1500 Limited, though two of them have two versions offered for a total of six engines. This gives you a tremendous amount of freedom to get exactly the right truck for what you need, starting with a 2.7L Turbo engine that offers 310 hp and going all the way up to a 6.2L V8 that delivers 420 hp. There is even a 3.0L turbo diesel on offer if you prefer the impressive power and great fuel economy that comes with a diesel option. While the standard engine tops out at up to 9,300 lbs of maximum towing capacity, the available 6.2L engine lets the Silverado Limited handle up to 13,300 lbs.
Not only do you get a lot of freedom in choosing the right engine to meet your needs, but you also have plenty of options for configuration and other features. There are three cab sizes and several bed lengths available for you to pick from, as well as eight different trim levels. The standard WT model features a 7-inch infotainment display, 6-speaker sound system, 3.5-inch driver information display, and similar features. Moving all the way up to the High Country trim delivers an incredibly sophisticated driving experience thanks to an 8-inch infotainment system with navigation, a 7-speaker Bose premium sound system, an 8-inch driver information center, and much more.
Since so much depends upon the engine in your vehicle, you always want to choose a truck with enough power to help you get your job done. The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited continues the modern Silverado trend of offering a wide range of fantastic engines. This gives you a lot of freedom to get the kind of power you need, without going overboard or coming up shy as you might with other trucks that only have one or two engines to offer.
There are four different engines available for the Silverado Limited, though two of them have two versions offered for six total possibilities. The standard engine is a 2.7L turbo I-4 that offers 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque, which comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Then there is an available 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine that delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, which is one of the ones with two versions offered. The standard version of this engine features automatic stop/start technology and an 8-speed automatic; some models of the Silverado 1500 Limited have this engine without stop/start, and it comes paired with a 10-speed instead.
For the most power available on the Silverado Limited, there is an available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine that delivers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This engine also has two versions: one with stop/start and one without, though both come paired with a 10-speed automatic. Finally, you can choose an available Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel I-6 engine that offers 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque with powerful, reliable diesel performance. The diesel engine also comes with a 10-speed automatic, providing a smooth and responsive driving experience.
One of the best things about the engine and powertrain options for the 2022 Silverado 1500 Limited is that they all come with rear-wheel drive standard but have four-wheel drive available. This gives you the freedom to get the kind of performance you need and really put together the perfect truck for your situation. The one exception to this is the two off-road-focused Trail Boss trims; they only come with four-wheel drive to ensure the best possible experience on the trail.
Although there is a lot to love about the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited, one of our favorite things about it is just how much freedom you have to get the right truck for you. This comes down to a lot of different factors that you can control, but one of the biggest is the different ways you can configure this truck. Not only do these different options ensure you get exactly the right setup for your needs, but it also impacts the kind of towing capacity and capability you get.
For starters, there are three different cab sizes and three bed lengths available for the Silverado Limited, but they are offered in four total setups – absolute freedom might be a great idea, but having nine options for configuration would be a bit much. You can choose a regular cab that is perfect for two people in front with a long bed that runs more than 98 inches in total length. If you want a bit more room inside, then there is a double cab available with a more spacious interior, which comes with a standard bed measuring almost 80 inches in length.
The most spacious interior option is an available crew cab, which gives you plenty of room for passengers in the front and in the rear seat, which is offered with two different bed sizes. The short bed measures almost 70 inches long, while you can also get the standard bed on the crew cab, which is about 80 inches in length. Altogether, these four options let you choose the ideal setup for what you need, and you get 89 cubic feet of total cargo bed volume with a long bed.
Towing capacity for the Silverado 1500 Limited depends on not only the configuration you choose but also the engine, so keep that in mind when considering all of your options. For example, a model with the standard bed and double cab might have a maximum towing capacity of 9,100 lbs with the standard 2.7L engine, but that can increase to more than 11,000 lbs with the available 5.3L V8 engine. Each engine, with the right setup, can handle towing up to:
As you can see, though the differences may be substantial, any engine can deliver excellent performance and capability. Choosing the right configuration and engine to get just what you need becomes a lot easier with someone by your side to help you navigate all of these options. There is nothing better than getting the ideal truck that perfectly meets your needs.
Since most of your time with your vehicle will be spent with you inside of it while driving, it is always important to consider the interior features of your next pickup. The standard features on the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited are excellent, with even more available if you are looking for some upgrades. You get a 7-inch infotainment display in the Silverado Limited standard, along with a 6-speaker sound system and support for Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. The starting WT trim also features vinyl seating, 4-way adjustable driver and front-passenger seats, a standard steering wheel, and a 3.5-inch monochromatic driver information center.
Looking at a higher trim like the RST, you get a number of upgrades, including an 8-inch infotainment display and cloth seating. The RST features a 10-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel for added comfort in cold climates. This trim features steering wheel-mounted controls, a 4-inch color driver information center, remote start and keyless open and start functionality, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Once you look at the High Country trim, then you can see just how sophisticated the Silverado Limited can get. This trim includes a Navigation system and a Bose 7-speaker premium sound system with a Richbass woofer.
