Silverado HD has been on the market for a few years, and it appears that GM did an excellent job with this model. Now, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel is coming with further improvements. It appears the new-gen Silverado HD is on the way, so the changes could be significant. The goal is to deliver all sorts of refreshments, especially in terms of capability. As a result, we expect to see a new design, followed by a new interior look and improved performances.
On the other hand, some reports are saying the cabin won’t change that much. It does make sense, as the current interior is doing just fine. The latest version of this vehicle, which is powered by a diesel engine, has a long list of advantages. Chevrolet will continue to offer this sort of powertrain, and we also expect to see slightly better fuel economy ratings and more power.
2022 Silverado 2500HD Diesel MPG, Towing Capacity
Under the hood, the new 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will once again offer the same V8 engine. It is a 6.6-liter turbodiesel with 445 horsepower. On top of that, this powertrain option develops up to 910 lb-ft of torque. The engine will continue to use the same 10-speed Allison automatic transmission. The latest reports are suggesting an even higher level of torque for this Duramax engine.
The current model has a towing capacity of 18,100 pounds. With more torque, Silverado 2500HD will reportedly tow closer to 20,000 pounds. Currently, Silverado 2500HD Diesel provides 19 mpg on the highway, which is more than the Ford F-250 that delivers 15 mpg.
This is an interesting one because no one knows how the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will look like. Sure, the diesel variant will look exactly the same as the base gasoline-powered model. We don’t expect significant visual upgrades, but some things will surely change.
The company’s latest T1 platform is lighter and tougher than before. Thanks to that, the ride quality is better and Silverado HD will gain better towing capacity. The face looks more distinctive than before and definitely bolder. We anticipate new exterior colors and possibly new optional wheels.
Inside the Cabin
The interior of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel is getting a couple of refreshments. Still, the interior layout and the design won’t change at all. The dashboard will be modernized and the cabin will introduce more upright materials.
Still, we think the Ford and RAM are offering better interiors at the moment. Silverado HD is roomy, practical, and comfortable. However, drastic changes are a must in the near future if Chevrolet plans to rival models such as Ford F-250 and Ram 2500.
2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel Price, Release Date
Since there are no major updates planned for the coming year, we anticipate that the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will hit the dealerships later in 2021. The base version will cost about $34,000 and the diesel model will cost above $40,000. Chevrolet will reveal more details in the coming weeks, including the truck’s specs.
