2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Features
If you like to push your truck to the limits and beyond, the offroad package is the feature you want to add. The ZR2 is a beast on off-road trails straight from the factory. It comes with a reputation for being easier to handle than the Ford Raptor and the Toyota TRX. This is because it has front and rear e-lockers, heavy-duty off-road tires and rims, and a braking system for extreme use.
By now, you have heard of the driving concept allowing you to take your hands off the wheel and let the car do its thing. That is what Super Cruise is all about. You can let the car drive itself, and it will even be able to tell when a lane change is required, and it will begin the maneuver when it is safe. The truck will also use all the safety protocols, such as using the blinker before changing lanes.
Numerous features are attached to this one tech gadget on the Silverado 1500. If you have a compatible trailer, the rear camera will allow you to virtually see through the trailer, so your rear line of vision is not impaired. The system also shows you a front view that gives you all the angles to park in tight spots, such as a campground or boat dock. It will also give you a split-screen view to help you hook up your trailer or to help you back up. This camera view also details the length of the trailer and the proximity of the dangers close by.
13.4 Inch Touchscreen Infotainment Center
Touchscreen centers in a truck have become one of the many essential aspects of the Chevy 1500. From this one screen, you can view and control almost all of the innovative technology that has been built into this truck. Cameras, stereo, Bluetooth connections, navigation, and other features you can opt to add. The main thing to remember is that it is a big enough screen to make it easy to use for the driver. Plus, it is a touchscreen, so you can make adjustments without endangering the truck’s occupants.
Heads Up Display
A familiar problem driver in the past had to deal with was glancing down at the instrument cluster to see how fast they were going. With the heads-up display, you can see the information directly in front of you on the windshield. This gives you the safety of keeping your eyes on the road while letting you see how much you need to slow down to prevent a ticket.
There are many more features on the Chevy Silverado 1500, this is just a short list. It all depends upon the trim and packages you’re shopping for. The best thing is that even if you opt to go with the ZR2, it will still handle the city streets and highways. It will also handle any loads you want to haul, so even though it was built for offroad use, it is more than able to carry out the duties of a truck.
The bottom line is that this truck is at the top of its game, and the off-road package puts this truck into a league of its own. Suppose you are truly looking for an all-around truck designed for every terrain, weather, and road. In that case, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the one built for you.
