Chevrolet’s heavy-duty Silverado trucks are the automaker’s most capable models. If you’re looking for the model that offers the most performance, you’ll want to take a look at the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD. The main difference between the Silverado 3500HD and its 2500HD sibling is that the former can be equipped with dual rear wheels that make the model even more capable. Properly outfitted, the Silverado 3500 can pull up to 36,000 pounds. But the Silverado 3500HD isn’t just about performance. Choose the range-topping High Country trim level at a dealership like the Kimberly Chevy dealer, and you’ll enjoy amenities that will make you think you’re in a premium vehicle.
The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is offered in regular, double, and crew cab configurations. According to the Kimberly Chevrolet dealer, buyers can choose one of four trim levels, listed as WT, LT, LTZ and High Country. There are two engines on offer. The standard powerplant is a 6.6-liter V8 that generates 401 horses and 464 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission. An optional Duramax diesel 6.6-liter V8 puts out 445 hp and an incredible 910 lb-ft of twist. This engine is matched to an Allison 10-speed automatic gearbox. Buyers can choose rear- or all-wheel drive. Both engines can get a single- or dual-rear-wheel axle.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado gets outstanding reviews from the automotive media. Motor Trend writes:
“This is no vehicle for the truck buyer who will throw a couple bags of mulch in the bed once a summer. No, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is a burly work vehicle for folks who tow more than 10,000 pounds in their sleep and regularly pile a ton or two of materials in the back...The Silverado 3500HD is a stiffer, stronger truck than its predecessor with more capability than ever before.”
The base Silverado 3500HD WT trim level is designed to be a capable work truck. Standard features include 18-inch wheels, vinyl upholstery, four-way manual driver and front passenger seats, daytime running lamps, manual windows and door locks, air conditioning, cargo tie-downs, trailering mirrors, the CornerStep rear bumper, side steps, a locking tailgate, hitch guidance, a 12-volt auxiliary front power outlet, rubberized vinyl floor covering, a rearview camera and a trailering package.
