Starting a new year is always an exciting time because it means new possibilities, new advancements, and maybe some unexpected surprises are just around the corner. This is especially true when it comes to new model years for vehicles. You never know what a company like Chevy is going to come out with when releasing new models, updates to existing models, or even just another year of a solid classic. There are definitely going to be a few new things at your local Chevy dealer as Chevrolet rolls out the red carpet for a gala of performance and style. At long last, the 2022 Chevy lineup will soon be here, and we’ve picked a few choice items that will make this new model year one to remember.
2022 Chevy Camaro
The 2022 Chevy Camaro is here to lead your aspirations of high performance to the finish line and back again. You might have had an uncle who boasted about his old street racer powered by a 454 Chevy Big Block, but now you get the chance to write your own page in the history books for power and posterity, but this isn’t your uncle’s Camaro anymore.
Chevy equips the top trims of its new generation of muscle cars with a high-performance 6.2L LT4 Supercharged V8. Bearing down at supersonic speeds with 650 hp and generating 650 lb-ft of torque, there’s no room for the soft and sensible. A 6-speed manual transmission gives you control over the road like never before. Style and speed are equally matched by a pair of 19” jet black aluminum wheels. If you want the most exciting ride this Camaro has to offer; then you need to be looking at the ZL1 1LE Extreme Track Performance Package.
2022 Chevy Bolt EV
The convenience of the modern age just got that much more attainable. With the EV boom in full swing, Chevy has a bold new redesign for their Bolt EV. As one of the most affordable EV’s on the market today, Chevy is providing fuel economy and electric efficiency to the masses. With a range of up to 259 miles between charges and an impressive 200 hp, you’ll be getting to your destination early and forgoing those trips to the gas pump. The Bolt EV might look small, but this is another example of big things coming in small packages. You’ll have plenty of room to stock up for the road with available seating for 5 and 57 cubic feet of storage space.
With a starting MSRP of just $31,000, you’ll have plenty leftover from your purchase and a whole lot more in your pocket as you save on what you once paid for fuel. Not to mention the favorable tax incentive offered when you purchase an EV. With so much to offer, the hardest choice you’ll have is where to go.
2022 Chevy Trax
SUVs have become so popular in recent years; it’s hard to imagine a time without them. Years ago, the minivan and station wagon were the most popular family vehicles on the road. For those that still feel that owning an SUV is out of their price range or just too large to handle, then the Chevy Trax is all the benefits wrapped up in a convenient package. Whether you’re hauling children or groceries (or both), you’ll have plenty of room with almost 48.4 cubic feet of storage space.
That’s not to say that the Trax is a glorified taxi, far from it. A 1.4L turbocharged engine will provide plenty of “oomph” in the performance department, and a stylish interior makes for a comfortable commute. If you’re still worried about paying too much, fear not. A starting MSRP of less than $22,000 and an average 27 MPG combined means you’ll be paying less at the dealer as well as the pump. If you play as hard as you work, available AWD means you’ll be able to get away anywhere.
2022 Chevy Blazer
As one of Chevrolet’s most celebrated vehicles, the Blazer has maintained a consistent standard of quality since its debut in 1969. As one suspects, that quality will continue into 2022 and beyond. An available 3.6L V-6 engine can be found under the hood, equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission for a smooth ride. With 308 hp you’ll have plenty of power, and up to 4,500 lbs of towing power means you’ll be able to take that trailer and your friends on an adventure that has no boundaries or limitations. After all, with a combined 22 MPG, you can go wherever your heart desires. 64.2 cubic feet of storage space and a starting MSRP of $33,400 make the Blazer one of the most economical and practical SUVs on the market. Midnight, Sport, and Red Line editions are available for those who want to upgrade the Blazer’s visual appeal.
2022 Chevy Spark
Here’s the situation; you’re on a budget and you need something cheap yet still capable. You must get to work, not pay too much for gas, and still have space to load up for a weekend of relaxation. While Chevy might not be able to help you repay that student loan debt, they can provide you with a vehicle that’s both affordable and practical. The Spark is a hatchback for the modern world.
No matter where you need to go, the Spark can take you there. Not only does the Spark come standard with a 1.4L 4-cylinder engine, but a remarkable combined fuel efficiency of 33 MPG combined, so you’ll be saving on the purchase price and on gas. You’ll be able to go almost 300 miles in between fill-ups, and with a starting MSRP of only $13,600, it’s one of the most affordable cars on the market today. Its compact size and 98 hp also make it ideal for younger drivers who are learning the importance of a practical car purchase and being safe and responsible behind the wheel.
2022 Chevy Silverado
We’ve saved the boldest of the 2022 Chevy models for the very last. If you’re tired of the toys in the sandbox and need to do some heavy lifting and pull some heavy duty weight, now is the time to put your faith in the 2022 Chevy Silverado. The Duramax 3.0L turbodiesel boasts an impressive 460 lb-ft of torque and 277 hp. This is one engine that will become the best working partner you’ve ever had. When properly maintained, the Duramax has a lifespan of up to 300,000 miles.
You’ll also find that the tough jobs just got smoother, thanks to a 10-speed automatic transmission that allows for quick acceleration, and with a towing capacity of 13,000 lbs, you’ll be able to take it all with you. With great power comes great responsibilities, and this power is more affordable than ever.
A Year to Look Forward To
As you can see, there is a lot to look forward to from the 2022 Chevy lineup, and we’ve only just touched the surface. Many of Chevy’s other models have gotten updates and upgrades, while there are surely still going to be some surprises from Chevy as the year continues.
