2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel: Preview, Specs, Changes

The current generation of Chevy’s full-size pickup truck has been around for a couple of years and while the base light-duty model is about to receive a major refresh for the next year, HD variants will wait for a little bit more time. In other words, they will continue in the same way and that includes the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel, which is one of the most popular variants of the HD model.

This means that you may count on a familiar layout, on a design that has a lot of good things to offer. Thanks to the recent redesign and all the improvements that came with it, this truck is now competitive again and offers respectable characteristics, both in terms of performance and capabilities. It is a well-rounded pickup. A perfect choice who search for a working machine that offers a great balance between price and quality.

Since no bigger changes are about to come for the next year, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel should hit the market sometime late in the year.

2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel Design

In terms of base design characteristics, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will continue in the same way. This model isn’t any different compared to the standard gasoline version and also rides on a new T1 platform. This architecture has brought significant improvements compared to the previous generation. It is significantly lighter and even more rigid, which makes it both more efficient and more capable. Furthermore, there is a significantly upgraded rear suspension setup. As a result, the new model is far more capable than its predecessor, especially when it comes to max towing capacity.

Of course, the recent redesign has also brought a new styling. As the current generation is still fresh, we presume that bigger visual changes won’t happen. There is always a chance to see things like new color options and similar things. Still, the overall look will certainly remain untouched.


The same story, unfortunately, goes for the interior design, which hasn’t received too many changes with the recent redesign. Moreover, most of the things remained the same, especially in terms of the dashboard design. Allegedly, changes will come in the next year, with the mid-cycle refresh. Meanwhile, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will continue with the dash which doesn’t look too modern and it’s far from the fanciest in the class. Still, it is a nice place to be in.

In terms of cab configurations, you may count on three familiar configurations, as well as on different bed sizes. All three cabins are quite spacious for their classes.

Trim Levels

Although there is a chance to see a couple of novelties in terms of standard equipment, most of the things will certainly remain the same, including the trim level organization.

Therefore, the offer will start with the WT trim, which is pretty basic and offers no more than things like a 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration, steel wheels, manual door locks and windows, black bumpers etc.

The LT is a bit on an upgrade, as you may count on goodies like heated and power-adjustable mirrors, a remote locking tailgate, cloth upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The LTZ is definitely worth extra money, as it adds a lot of things to the list of standard equipment. For example, there are goodies like power-folding mirrors, leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats.

Of course, the High County will be the most luxurious version in the offer, which comes standard with goodies like side assist steps, a spray-in bedliner, ventilated front seats and a Bose audio system.

Numerous packages and standalone options are also available.

This aspect definitely won’t bring surprises and the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel will certainly continue in the same way. This means that you may count on a familiar 6.6-liter V8 turbodiesel, which features a max output of 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. With such numbers, you may count on a confident and convenient ride, while we also like the new transmission. Of course, we are talking about a new 10-speed unit from Allison, which is refined and pretty quick on shifts.

All in all, this truck is capable and refined, probably the most refined among rivals with diesel engines. Also, it offers strong capabilities, as this particular version can tow up to 15.400 pounds.
