Interior Design

Overhauled Interior Design

The latest Chevy Silverado coming to the Ernie Dean showroom very deftly combines rugged capability with a refined and well-appointed interior. Tech-savvy customers will be able to integrate their Apple and Android devices into their travels through a 13.4-inch touchscreen interface that provides access to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is also available.

Digital Driver Information Center

Chevrolet has replaced the traditional analog gauge cluster with a fully digital 12.3-inch display. Owners can easily monitor several kinds of information. Additionally, the display is customizable to meet the driver’s needs or tastes.

Super Cruise Hands-Free Driving

The dream of self-driving automobiles has been around since the very beginning. Chevy’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology is as close as we have come to this point. Ernie Dean customers will need to choose the top-of-the-line High Country trim to use Super Cruise. Drivers will be able to easily activate this feature and let the truck safely guide itself along more than 380,000 km of properly marked roads in Canada and the United States.

Performance & Capability

Engine Capability

Chevy has revised its available engine options for the 2022 Silverado 1500. The three gas-powered engines include a turbocharged 2.7-litre, inline four-cylinder, 5.3-litre, V-8 and a 6.2-litre, V-8. All of them make more than 300 horsepower. The 4.3-litre V-6 has been dropped from the truck’s engine menu. An eight- or 10-speed transmission is available depending on which powerplant is chosen.

Diesel Performance

The available 3.0-litre, inline six-cylinder Duramax turbo diesel engine provides an interesting balance between bottom-line performance and fuel economy. Buyers choosing the 2022 Silverado with the diesel engine can expect it to produce 460 pound-feet of torque, which matches the torque produced by the top gas engine option. The diesel engine will employ the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

Towing Capacity

Regardless of which engine an Ernie Dean customer chooses to take home, they will have one of the best towing capacities in its class. A properly equipped 2022 Silverado with the 6.2-litre V-8 engine can pull up to 5,987 kg (13,200 lbs.). The turbocharged 2.7-litre power plant can pull up to 4,309 kg (9,500 lbs) and the 5.3-litre engine will tow as much as 5,080 kg (11,200 lbs.).
