Drivers who have followed the Chevy Silverado since its introduction in 1999––or even since the name was first popularized in 1975––understand and appreciate that the Silverado is far more than just one of the most reliable trucks on the road today. In fact, the Silverado 1500 is many things, including highly customizable, mighty, and ideal for a variety of drivers. So how do you judge the Chevy Silverado against…itself? This is the problem we encounter when comparing the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited vs 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500.
The 2022 Silverado Limited was introduced as continued production of the 2021 Silverado, while the fully-redesigned 2022 Silverado was entering production. As a result, it's still very much the Chevy Silverado 1500 you've trusted to get the job done for years. However, there are a few key differences, from engine options to technology, that drivers should consider when trying to decide between the Silverado Limited and the all-new Silverado.
Let's take a look at the models side-by-side to determine which better fits your pickup truck needs. But bear in mind––this isn't your standard comparison. As far as we're concerned, every Chevy truck is a winner. As a driver, though, you'll need to be able to spot the differences to make the best purchase for your needs. Whichever one of these Chevy trucks is the better fit for you, you can find it here at DePaula Chevrolet.
When it comes to what's under the hood, fear not: both the 2022 Silverado 1500 Limited and the 2022 Silverado 1500 feature familiar engines that Chevy fans have enjoyed for a long time. In fact, both models have the same four engine options available. However, since the Limited is a carryover of 2021 technology, there are a few differences.
For example, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500's base engine, the 2.7L Turbo, has been re-tuned to provide 24% more torque than the 2.7L in the Silverado Limited. The result is a mighty 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Those who select the 2022 Limited with this engine will still have plenty of power at their command with 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque, but the difference may matter more to those who need that extra boost. In particular, the more powerful engine in the redesigned truck can tow up to 9,500 lbs instead of the 9,300 lbs of the older version.
Chevy's famous 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 is also available on both models. However, the Limited version of the Silverado offers a choice between a version equipped with Dynamic Fuel Management and Auto Stop/Start technology or one without the Auto Stop/Start feature. Each is offered on different trims throughout the lineup. In the 2022 Silverado, the 6.2L engine is standard on the off-road-ready ZR2 trim and available on many other trims.
The Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel engine is an available addition to both the 2022 Silverado Limited and the 2022 Silverado. However, towing capacity has been re-engineered for the new Silverado, allowing it to pull up to 13,300 lbs. The Limited models, when equipped with the turbo-diesel engine, are able to tow up to a maximum of 9,300 lbs. This makes the 2022 Silverado a clear winner if you are looking for a new diesel truck for towing.
However, there is one engine that is completely the same in both trucks: the 5.7L EcoTec3 V8. Whether you opt for the 2022 Silverado or the 2022 Silverado Limited, this engine will provide the same 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Overall, while there are a few differences in the engine options, drivers know exactly what's waiting for them when they put the pedal down: pure Chevy power, at your command.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 has earned a reputation as one of the most flexible and customizable trucks on the market, and rightly so. Each year, drivers are presented with a plethora of trims as well as a hearty handful of packages that can be optioned in to make your vehicle exactly what you need it to be to get the job done.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is offered in nine trims:
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTD is offered in 8 trims:
That's a lot of similar letters, so we'll go ahead and tell you about the big difference in the trim lineups: the ZR2.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 ZR2 is the first of its kind. Specially constructed for off-road success with heavy-duty elements, the ZR2 comes factory-equipped with features that make it ready to roll from the showroom to the trail. This includes exclusive Multimatic DSSV dampers, an improved 31-degree approach angle, front and rear electronic locking differentials, and underbody skid plates, for starters.
The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTD lineup has no such off-road beast, but that doesn't mean you have to keep your truck on the pavement. The Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss trims include the Z71 Off-Road Package drivers have enjoyed for many years. This gives the Silverado a 2-inch suspension lift, enhanced shocks, and skid plates, along with other mud-friendly features. As a result, drivers can wander off the road well-traveled with plenty of confidence.
One area in which the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited and the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 are a bit different from each other is in the comfort and convenience features that are offered. As part of the full redesign for the 2022 model year, Chevy gave the new Silverado a slew of upgraded features designed to elevate it above the pack, including more safety technologies.
For example, the 2022 Silverado Limited and 2022 Silverado differ in their standard safety offerings. Each 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 from the WT to the High Country comes equipped with the Chevy Safety Assist suite of safety and driver assistance technology, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator and Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high beams.
The 2022 Silverado 1500 Limited offers many of these features as well, but not all of them are standard across the lineup. The Limited offers the absolute necessities as standard equipment, including six airbags, daytime running lamps, a rear vision camera, StabiliTrak stability control, Teen Driver controls, and tire pressure monitoring, all of which are also standard on the Silverado 1500.
Higher trims of the Silverado Limited include front and rear parking assistance, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Drivers have the opportunity to option available safety features on a variety of trims, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. So you aren't left out if you want advanced safety features on the Silverado Limited.
If you are the type of driver who thrives on having all of the latest and greatest bells and whistles on your truck, perhaps the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is ideal for your lifestyle. But, if you're looking for an honest, dependable truck that does exactly what you expect it to do, maybe the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited is what you've been trying to find. Regardless of which Silverado iteration you choose, there's very good news: you're going home with a brand-new Chevy truck.
