2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 in Orleans
The Silverado 2500 from Chevrolet offers an unbeatable combination of engine power, capability, and high comfort, making it the partner you need for the toughest daily work. Originally launched back in 1999, it's now one of the best-selling Chevy trucks of all time, and has been constantly refined and improved over the last two decades. We now have the latest 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 available at our Orleans dealership, and here's why we highly recommend booking a test drive.
Gas or Diesel Power
Choose the Silverado 2500 and you'll have the option of two main engine specifications. The standard mill is a 6.6L V8 gas design making an enticing 401 horsepower and 464lb-ft of torque, feeding either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive through a six-speed automatic transmission. And while this powertrain is impressive enough, there's another heavy duty option for those who need even more output.
Trade up to the 6.6L V8 turbodiesel, and the horsepower increases to 445 hp while the torque reaches fully 910lb-ft, turning the Silverado into a genuinely class-leading workhorse. What's more, the transmission is upgraded to a super-smooth ten-speed automatic unit, delivering confident handling to go with all that power.
But raw engine figures mean little if a truck doesn't perform in the real world. Thankfully, the Silverado 2500 is every bit as capable as you'd hope, with a maximum payload capacity of 1,808kg for both powertrain formats. However, the towing capacity depends on the choice of engine. The gas model can haul an impressive 6,591kg as standard or 7,895kg with a gooseneck trailer, while the turbodiesel mill's huge torque pushes the capacity up to a mammoth 8,409kg.
Infotainment and Safety Technology
But the 2022 Silverado 2500 is about much more than sheer power under the hood. Every model in the range is supplied with an infotainment touchscreen display of either 7" or 8", featuring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and voice recognition capability as standard. Higher trims add wireless charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot facility to up the tech ante even further.
And lastly, the Silverado's active safety systems include collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, a multiview camera system, and rear cross-traffic alerts which take attached trailer loads into account.
