    The Silverado name has been in the Chevy family since the mid-1970s when the American automaker first introduced it as a trim option on the C/K truck, Tahoe, and Suburban. The Silverado earned a lineup of its own in 1999 with the debut of the Silverado 1500 that paved the way for road warriors like the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 and 3500. These workhorses continue the Silverado's rich history of delivering exceptional power, innovative technology, and the versatility to travel across any terrain and accomplish any task at hand.

    The Silverado 2500 and 3500 are classified as Chevy's HD or heavy-duty models. They aren't in competition with one another since they share many of the same features and are designed to satisfy different needs. For example, the 2500 is more agile while the 3500 is known for its exceptional towing capability. A look at the numbers shows the difference with the 2500 capable of towing up to 18,510 pounds while the 3500 doubles that capability to 36,000 pounds.

    This isn't a question of which is better, the Silverado 2500 or the Silverado 3500. Both trucks are remarkably similar as part of the Chevy lineup. They offer a suite of cutting-edge technology that extends from connectivity, safety, and driver-assist features to trailering tools that give you the confidence you need when towing a heavy load. What else do these road warriors have to offer? An all-new design for 2022, along with loads of capability and state-of-the-art tech.

  • Performance

    Chevy outfits the 2022 Silverado HD lineup with plenty of power courtesy of two powertrain options. The 2500 and 3500 are offered with two-wheel or four-wheel drive and come standard with a 6.6-liter V8 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. This combination delivers 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough power for smooth acceleration and capability when climbing steep grades. For greater capability and towing power, Chevy offers the 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel that's mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

    Towing and Payload

    The Duramax is responsible for the Silverado HD's exceptional towing ability. The 2500 HD powered by the Duramax can tow 18,500 pounds on either a conventional, fifth-wheel, or gooseneck trailer. Equipping the 3500 HD with dual rear wheels boosts this capability even higher to 20,000 pounds with a conventional trailer and to 36,000 pounds with a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch.

    How do the powertrains affect payload or the total weight the Silverado can carry in its bed? The 2500 HD with two-wheel-drive and the 6.6-liter V8 engine can carry up to 3,979 pounds in its bed, while the Duramax reduces this capacity to 3,715 pounds. With four-wheel drive, the gas-powered 2500 HD can carry 3,965 pounds, which is again reduced to 3,715 pounds with the Duramax. We see the same differences on the 3500 HD when outfitted with dual rear wheels. The two-wheel drive 3500 HD powered by the gasoline engine can carry up to 7,442 pounds, while the Duramax reduces this to 6,523 pounds. With four-wheel drive, the gas-powered 3500 HD can haul 7,145 pounds in contrast to the Duramax-powered model that can haul 6,196 pounds.

    Which Option to Choose?

    These differences in towing and payload reflect the different capabilities and purposes that the Silverado 2500 and the Silverado 3500 serve along with their powertrains. The 6.6-liter gas engine is ideal if you frequently use the truck bed for hauling heavy equipment. However, if you frequently haul heavy loads using a trailer, fifth-wheel, or gooseneck, then you'll want to look at the beefier Duramax turbo-diesel that maximizes the Silverado's towing potential.

  • Function

    The 2022 Silverado 2500 and 3500 are designed to make your job easier, whether you're carrying heavy equipment in the bed or towing a trailer. Chevy equips its heavy-duty trucks with a variety of functional features to help you get any job done. These features start with the Durabed that offers the most cargo volume and the most standard tie-downs (there are 12) in the segment. You can also extend the Durabed's function by adding LED cargo area lighting and a built-in 120-volt outlet that's ideal for charging power tools, electronics, and other items whether you're at a job site, campsite, or working in the garage.

    The Multi-Flex Tailgate

    Beyond the Durabed, the Silverado 2500 and 3500 now offer Chevy's exclusive Multi-Flex tailgate on every trim. The tailgate is the best in the segment because it offers six different functions to help you access the cargo bed and load or unload gear with ease. The primary gate resembles the traditional tailgate, but it opens from the key fob, a switch inside the cab, or a button on the gate itself for added convenience. The gate features a load stop, which unfolds to prevent longer items from sliding out of the bed. Second-tier loading is easy with the inner gate, which also features a load stop that prevents items from sliding out of the upper bed. The inner gate also folds out into a work surface, which is great when you need to use your laptop, look over blueprints, or finish up some paperwork at a job site. You'll find that the inner gate also folds down for easier access into the Durabed and features a full-width step that can hold up to 375 pounds.

    Trailering Technology

    Chevy extends the function of the Silverado HD even further with the segment's first Advanced Trailering System. The system allows you to create custom trailer profiles that put all the vital information you need at your fingertips via the myChevrolet Mobile app or the center touchscreen display via the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system. This system is enhanced by the Silverado HD's exceptional camera technology that extends across eight cameras and offers 15 unique views, the most in the industry.

    From the center display, you'll have four available hitch views that make it easy for you to hitch and unhitch to a trailer. The Surround View gives you a bird's eye view of the truck and its surroundings, while the Rear Top-Down View shows you the distance between the truck bed and the trailer or other objects nearby. The Bed View is ideal if you're hauling cargo in the bed or using a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer since it gives you a clear view of the bed with Cargo Bed Zoom and Bed Hitch Guidance.

    The Silverado HD's six available driving views give you the confidence you need when you're moving and include Transparent Trailer, Front Camera View, Pic-in-Pic Side View, Rear Trailer View, Inside Trailer View, and the Rear Camera Mirror that gives you a wider, less obstructed view behind the truck. The five parking views also make parking your truck and trailer easier with unique views like the Rear Side View, Bowl View, Front Side View, and Front Top-Down View.

  • Technology

    The 2022 Silverado 2500 and 3500 are both equipped with the latest connectivity, safety, and driver-assist tools. The heart of the Silverado's connectivity tools is in the 7-inch or 8-inch color touchscreen display that's home to the Chevrolet infotainment system. Depending on the trim, you'll enjoy Chevy's navigation system as well as wireless smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These features work tirelessly to keep you connected to your smartphone while keeping your focus on the road ahead.

    Chevy makes keeping your eyes on the road even easier with the available Head-Up Display. The 15-inch display projects your speed, navigation, safety alerts, and other vital data into a crisp display on the windshield. This gives you all the information you need within your immediate line of sight.

    Safety Features

    Beyond the connectivity tools and Head-Up Display, you'll also find the Silverado 2500 and 3500 offer an extensive suite of active and passive safety tools that are designed to enhance your visibility and minimize the potential for collision. Automatic Emergency Braking works with Forward Collision Alert to monitor for potential front-end collisions and, when imminent, can bring the truck to an emergency stop or enhance your braking. Rear Cross Traffic Alert monitors behind the truck for passing traffic while Rear Park Assist takes the guesswork out of backing the truck into a parking spot. Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert monitors the truck's position and blind zones while Lane Departure Warning notifies you if the truck unintentionally drifts from its lane. Other features include IntelliBeam automatic headlamps and a Safety Alert Seat.
