The current generation of Chevy’s HD pickup truck has been around for a while and it proved itself as a pretty capable unit. Therefore, we don’t expect that the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will feature too many updates and changes, considering that it’s about to represent the third production year of the generation. Still, minor updates in terms of standard and available features are always possible.
All in all, you may count on a familiar overall layout. This particular version comes with a capable oil burner but it is also much more than just a great working machine. You may count on an attractive design, loads of standard equipment and a quite comfortable ride.
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will arrive in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2021.
2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Design
Design-wise, we are about to see the same layout that was introduced two years ago. With that redesign, this truck turned to a new T1 platform, which provided improvements in various aspects. For example, the current generation is notably lighter compared to its predecessor. At the same time, the chassis rigidity has been improved, as well as the overall performance.
Visually, the current model looks pretty impressive and the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will continue in the same way. We particularly like the grille design, which comes in a couple of different layouts, depending on the trim level you choose.
At first, Chevy lovers were a little bit disappointed with the new model, as the cabin design remained pretty much the same. We didn’t see too many changes and the dashboard remained the same. Compared to rivals like Ford F-250 and especially Ram 2500, this cabin looks notably less upscale. However, those who are looking for functionality will find it perfectly fine. The ergonomics are good, while there is plenty of space for passengers, no matter the cab style you choose. Speaking of the cab styles, this model comes in Regular, Double and Crew Cab layouts.
Although there is a chance to see novelties in terms of standard equipment, we are pretty sure that the trim level organization will remain the same. Of course, the Work Truck will remain the standard version. This is a typical workhorse, which comes with basic features like steel wheels and manual accessories. However, you may count on goodies like a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Custom trim level is a bit of an upgrade, which adds power accessories and cruise control.
The LT is a mid-level option, which comes standard with goodies like heated and power-adjustable mirrors, a remote locking tailgate, cloth upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The LTZ adds a couple of upgrades, such as power-folding mirrors, leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, and an upgraded 8-inch touchscreen among other features. You also get a seven-pin wiring harness with a trailer brake controller.
Finally, there is the High Country trim level, which comes with exclusive styling details and things like side assist steps, a spray-in bedliner, ventilated front seats and a Bose audio system.
2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel Engine
Things under the hood will certainly remain the same. The 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will continue to use a familiar 6.6-liter V8 turbodiesel, which puts out around 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. The engine by itself works great. It offers a high level of refinement and provides quick acceleration. Also, the 10-speed automatic transmission works great too.
The engine is pretty efficient but also pretty capable. With this unit, you may count on the max towing rating that goes up to over 18.500 pounds. That is a pretty respectable number for the class.
2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will hit the market sometime late in the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 49.000 dollars.
