The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited is a sort of in-between version of Chevy’s full-size pickup that looks like the 2021 model but comes with some of the features of the refreshed 2022 model before the updated truck makes its market debut.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The most notable change relative to the 2021 Silverado 1500 is the Limited’s deletion of a 4.3L V6 gas engine, which leaves the 2.7L turbo four-cylinder as the entry-level power source. Also gone is a 6-speed automatic transmission, making either 8- or 10-speed gearboxes carried forward from last year standard depending on trim.
Chevrolet offers the Silverado 1500 Limited in WT, Custom, LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country trim levels. Depending on the trim you choose, you get a choice of 2.7L turbo four-cylinder, 5.3L V8 and 6.2L V8 gas engines, and a 3.0L inline-six turbodiesel. 2.7L and 5.3L trucks get an 8-speed automatic transmission, and 3.0L and 6.2L models get the 10-speed. Two- and four-wheel drive are available.
