The current generation of Chevy’s most capable HD pickup has been around for a while but it still looks pretty fresh. Therefore, we don’t expect to see any particular changes for the next year. The overall layout will certainly remain the same, though there is always a chance to see some minor updates, in terms of new features, new color options and similar things. On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the truck will certainly remain untouched.
Some reports were suggesting a new interior design for the upcoming model but we don’t believe this would happen, considering that the officials are still quiet. So, you may count on the same interior layout, as well as on things like strong towing and hauling capabilities, capable engine options and pretty attractive styling.
Considering that bigger changes probably won’t happen, we expect that the launch date will be scheduled for the end of the year.
2022 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Redesign
As we already mentioned, the base layout will certainly remain the same. This model is still fresh for some bigger updates, so the best we could see for the next year are minor tweaks like new color options. On the other side, the overall styling will certainly remain the same, which also means different front fascias on the offer, depending on the trim level you chose. Some versions come with pretty futuristic and bold, blacked grille patterns, while others stick with more conventional solutions and come with classic chrome grille designs.
In terms of mechanics, we certainly won’t see any changes. The 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500HD will continue in the same way, offer a stiffer chassis and upgraded rear suspension compared to the smaller 2500HD model. This upgrade allows significant improvements in terms of towing and payload, while the ride quality remains pretty smooth, though not as smooth as in some rival models, such as Ram 3500HD.
Some sources were suggesting a completely new interior for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, as well as for other Silverado models, but it looks like this won’t happen. Instead, we count on the same layout, which may not look as attractive as some other interiors in the class, but still provides a high level of functionality. The dashboard looks decent enough, while the ergonomics are pretty good. Furthermore, the materials are good, while the list of standard and available equipment is pretty long.
This truck comes in different cab configurations and all of them are spacious and comfortable. If you pick crew cab models, you may count on two quite spacious rows of seats, which accommodate adults with ease. Along with different cab styles, you may also count on different bed lengths in the offer.
One of the things we like about this pickup truck is that it comes in a wide range of versions in the offer. The base ones are typical workhorses, while the most expensive models look pretty luxurious. The 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500HD may bring few changes, but most of the things will remain the same.
Therefore, entry-level models will be pretty basic. They will feature no more than things like vinyl upholstery, a 7-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. On the other side, the best-equipped models come with things like chrome bumpers and wheels, LED headlights, a power tailgate, a Bose audio system, leather upholstery, and heated, ventilated front seats and many more.
2022 Chevy 3500HD Engines
The powertrain lineup will remain the same. So, base versions will feature a recently-introduced 6.6-liter gasoline V8, which is good for about 401 horsepower ad 464 pound-feet of torque. On the other side, the well-known 6.6-liter turbodiesel will be available as an option. This one features a max output of 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to provide pretty impressive max towing ratings, which can go up to 36.000 pounds.
The base gasoline engine comes in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission, while the diesel engine is coupled with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
2022 Chevy 3500HD Release Date and Price
Considering that no bigger changes are expected for the next year, we presume that the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500HD will arrive in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2021. Base models should go around 37.000 dollars. Of course, key competitors will be Ram 3500 and Ford F-350.
