Chevy trucks are outstanding vehicles with exceptional styling, convenience, utility, and reliability. With three classes of trucks to choose from, including the Colorado, Silverado, and Silverado HD, there’s undoubtedly a Chevy truck to fit your needs. In addition, the 2022 Colorado, 2022 Silverado, and 2022 Silverado HD are loaded with updates and new features you’re sure to love. Let’s explore the updates and new features Chevy has incorporated into its 2022 Chevy truck lineup.

2022 Chevy Colorado

If you’re seeking the versatility of a traditional pickup without the commitment of owning a full-size truck, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado might be what you’re looking for. This midsize truck may be a tad bit smaller than the 2022 Silverado but boasts impressive overall performance numbers such as a maximum tow rating of 7,700 pounds and a maximum payload of 1,550 pounds.

The standard motor for the 2022 Colorado is a 2.5-liter inline-four with 200 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. In addition, there are two more available motors for the Colorado.
