Engine Specifications and MPG

If you decide to purchase the new Chevrolet Silverado 2500, you have two engines to choose from. The standard engine is a 6.6-liter V-8 that produces 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque. It works with a six-speed automatic transmission to deliver power to the rear wheels, but you can also opt for the available all-wheel drive. With this power plant, the truck can accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in 7.5 seconds.

For greater towing capability and a more engaging driving experience, go for the optional 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel V-8. Rated at 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, this legendary power plant cuts the sprint time to an impressive 6.5 seconds. It pairs with a slick-shifting Allison 10-speed automatic transmission that does a great job of handling its immense power.

Regardless of which engine you choose, the Silverado 2500 is capable of performing most driving tasks with ease and confidence. However, if you need to regularly tow or haul extremely heavy loads or negotiate hilly terrain, you’ll be better off getting the turbo-diesel engine.

Another appealing aspect of the Chevy Silverado 2500 is its refined handling. Despite its hefty size and weight, this truck is surprisingly easy to maneuver, thanks to its well-weighted and responsive steering. It also rides smoothly over uneven surfaces and demonstrates excellent stability and composure at highway speeds and around corners. Furthermore, this truck can be a decent off-roader when it’s equipped with the Z71 Off-Road package, which includes an upgraded suspension, all-terrain tires, and underbody protection.

Since the EPA doesn’t test heavy-duty trucks, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 doesn’t have an official fuel-economy rating. However, in a Fuelly survey, it was found that the mechanically similar 2021 Silverado 2500 delivers an average combined mpg of 12.7. The survey is based on data collected from 40 vehicles and more than 400,000 miles of driving.

The higher trims of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 come with several driver-assistance technologies that can help you detect potential hazards promptly and avoid collisions. These features include automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, lane-departure alert, blind-spot detection, and rear cross-traffic warning.

In addition, the truck has several optional trailer-assist features that make towing easier and safer. One of them is an innovative multi-view camera system with a transparent mode that allows you to “see through” your trailer and get a clear view of what’s behind it. This system can be very helpful when you’re trying to park your truck or merge with highway traffic while trailering.

Aside from advanced safety features, the Silverado 2500 is also equipped with a good selection of infotainment features to keep you connected and entertained behind the wheel. It comes standard with the Chevy Infotainment 3 system, which allows you to connect your smartphone via Bluetooth, Android Auto, or Apple CarPlay.
