When it comes to dependable pickups, the Silverado 1500 is at the top of the list. This popular truck offers one heck of a ride, and for the 2022 model year, Chevrolet is looking to add even more to this already great model. With a newly redesigned and upgraded interior, a more powerful diesel engine, and a new off-road package, there is plenty more to love about the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Performance of the Silverado 1500

When talking about trucks, the most important aspect is their performance. Most people buy trucks for their hauling and towing capabilities, so it’s what we’re going to focus on here. In terms of performance, the Silverado 1500 provides a great deal of power that many will enjoy. This year’s model comes with multiple power trains such as a turbocharged four-cylinder, two V-8s, and a Duramax diesel 3.0-liter inline-six.

Regarding the two eight-cylinder engines, the fastest is the 420-horsepower 6.2-liter, found inside the Silverado High Country as it’s capable of going 0-60 in 5.4 seconds. By comparison, the other V8, a 355 horsepower 5.3-liter, can go 0-60 in 6.1 seconds. While the turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder isn’t as fast as the two V8s, it has been given a slight boost in power as it now outputs 420 pounds of torque. And although the diesel-powered engine of the Silverado does have the slowest acceleration, it does offer one of the smoothest and quiet rides you’ll find.

When buying a truck like Silverado 1500, the hauling and towing power is what many drivers look at. Whether you’re buying the base model or the most expensive trim, you’ll find that this truck is one serious hauler, offing a max towing capacity of 13,300 pounds with its diesel engine. The other powertrains are no slouches either, as the 5.3-liter version can handle as much as 11,500 pounds, and the turbocharged four-cylinder can tow up to 9500 pounds.
