You can take it as read that the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTD is a fantastic pickup truck for towing and hauling, but it’s also a vehicle that can easily fulfil just about any other role you’d care to mention. The 2022 Silverado 1500 LTD can be configured as the ultimate workhorse, a daily commuter, a family hauler, a weekend adventure vehicle, and just about anything else other than a tiny city car. If there’s a job to be done – big or small – in and around Yellowknife, you can be confident that the Silverado has it covered.
There are six or eight trim levels to choose from in the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 lineup, and whether you have the six or the eight to choose from depends on whether you’re going for a rear-wheel drive or a four-wheel-drive version of the Chevy truck. Rear-drive 1500 LTDs come in WT, Custom, LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trim levels but go for the extra capability of a 4×4 variant and then you get a choice of WT, Custom, LT, RST, Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country trims. Of course, trim levels are just a small part of the configuration process and you also have three body styles and three bed lengths before you even get to engines, transmissions, colors, wheels, interiors, etc.
If you’re familiar with the half-ton Silverado you’ll probably notice right away that the naturally aspirated V-6 engine is no longer part of the family. Instead, the previously optional 2.7-liter turbo-four with its 310 horsepower and 348 lb.-ft. of torque is now the standard engine for the first few trims in the 2022 lineup. If a V-8 is still your preferred powerplant, the tried and tested 5.3-liter V-8 is still available and you can rely on that unit to deliver up to 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque.
Many buyers will want the most powerful engine option for their Silverado 1500 LTD and that comes in the shape of a 6.2-liter V-8 that develops a very serious 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, and this one’s available for the RST trim and higher. Last but not least is a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel which provides the Chevy with 277 horsepower and the same 460 lb.-ft. of torque as the 6.2-liter V-8. The standard 2.7-liter turbo-four and the 5.3-litre V-8 send their power to the wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, but a 10-speed automatic is also available for the 5.3-litre V-8 and it’s the standard transmission if you have the 6.2-liter V-8 and the 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine.
The WT in 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTD stands for “Work Truck,” so this entry-level model is definitely the no-nonsense workhorse of the current lineup. However, even this most affordable versions of the half-ton Chevy truck leave the factory with auto stop/start, electric power steering, the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control, a 12-volt auxiliary front power outlet, a 6-speaker audio system, a rear vision camera, climate control, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Obviously, the list of standard and available equipment goes through the roof as you progress through the trim levels. Some of the standout features that are available include a powered tailgate that raises and lowers at the push of a button on the gate, key fob, or from inside the cabin; an available six-way power tailgate; a rear view camera mirror; and a segment-first available Advanced Trailering System with an In-Vehicle App that allows you to create customized trailer profiles. You can make towing and hauling as easy as it can possibly be as the Silverado is available with as many as 15 different camera views.
