2022 Silverado 2500HD 6.6 Gas Payload (CC SB)


Recommended Posts

Can somebody with a loaded 2022 (or 2021) 2500HD 6.6 Gas LT/LTZ (or similar with the options below) post their payload and GVWR?

 

My wife and I are looking at ordering a loaded 2022 gas 2500HD LT with the Z71 sport package, convenience and safety packages, 5th wheel package, leather bucket seats, sunroof, extra altnernator/battery, etc (pretty much every box checked). The GVWR will be 10,6500#'s, and I'm guessing with it fully loaded it will probably have a payload around 3,100? But I'm curious if anyone already has one or at least very similar what your payload ended up being.

 

Thanks!

Mine (22’ LT CCSB Z71, 6.6 gas) has a payload of 3562, but I don’t have a sunroof, 5th wheel prep, or extra battery. My GVWR is 10,650. For additional reference, my dad has a fully loaded 21’ LTZ Z71 w/ the Duramax. His payload is around 3350. He has the 5th wheel prep and everything.

Is a high payload and towing capacity of importance?  If so, some things to keep in mind.

 

- Z71 Sport/Midnights/Alaskan.  If they have the 275/70R18 Hankook Mud Tire, towing drops.  Trailering goes down to 12,000lbs flat, no matter the engine option (especially diesels, which a crew cab standard with 18"s is rated for 18,500lbs but the Hankooks drop it to flat 12,000lbs).  If you are looking at one of these packages, try to find one that has the Michelins optioned back on to it (would have a -$95 credit on the window sticker) or that has 20"s on it.

 

- Avoid the 10,000GVWR de-rate, unless you need that GVWR for business purposes.  Payload and towing are HEAVILY hit on the de-rate trucks.

 

- Highest payloads will be on trucks with 18" (except the Hankook Mud tire) or 20" wheels, every time, no matter the cab or engine.  

 

- For obvious CYA/legal reasons, no, changing the Hankook tire out after buying the truck doesn't "legally raise" your payload and towing.  Truck will be rated for what it is rated.  

 

Here is a gas 2020 LTZ, crew standard box with 20"s, LTZ Convenience 1 and 2, no sunroof and VYU plow prep:

corrected info on the Hankook to reflect only a tow rating drop not payload and towing

Thanks for the info! I was unaware the mud terrains de-rate the tow. Do you know if that shows up on the door sticker? Based on your followup comment I am assuming so.

Do you know how much it hits the payload rating? Because selecting any of those packages in the builder ups the GVWR to 10,650#. Seems odd that it would increase the GVWR and also lower the payload.

 

That really sucks, those tires look great!

 

We're planning on getting a 5th wheel, probably no more than 11,00# GVWR; so we are wanting to hit 3,000# payload capacity.

The hankook tires only lower coventional towing to 12,000 lbs.  The payload and gooseneck numbers are the same as the standard 18 or 20 tires.

Thanks for clarifying that! 

 

Do you know if there is a way to get a close approximate payload for a custom build?

 

I'm honestly surprised that automakers don't have a section for approximate payload in the summary. It doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to just add weight numbers to each option on the back end and then show you the approximate calculated payload based on your specific build.

I had a 2020 ccsb 2wd LT 2500 loaded and it was 3600lbs payload........10,350 GVWR

 

Now have 2022 LT 2500 4x4 fairly loaded but its dbl cab and lowered 10,000 GVWR...payload is 3100lbs (fine for what i do)

 

both of these trucks have 18'' rims with michelins

 

tbh i would just get a 3500 next time.....the ride is the same (close enough) and you get more capacity.......

 

i believe they just use a different torsion bar for different GVWR is that correct?

The online order guide almost every year always had the Model Weights and Options calculator that you could spec out the truck from cab, drivetrain, and every available options to get a fairly accurate payload on how the truck would be based on its total build.

 

For some reason, GM stopped uploading the page for it.  Last one they did was the 2020 model year.  Kinda dumb to me, even if the door tags have all the details as for someone who is building to a certain spec would find it useful.

There is not anything out there for calculating payload.  The payloads listed on internet are base model payload.  Tire/wheel, sunroof, fifth wheel prep, and spray in bedliners are options that have significant mass inceeases with them.

So why is it that the Hankook, which has the same 125 load index as the Michelins, is the tow rating cut so much?  Makes no sense.

Hankook likes to sway with conventional trailer.  MT and other aggressive tires can be not great trailering tires due to having softer compounds and tread blocks that are not as stiff.  The load rating on the tire has no bearing on the tires ability to trailer.

Well.  That seems like a huge oversight from whatever engineering department handles tire choices.  Just like the power tailgate release with no secondary manual handle on the gate so when the battery dies, you could still be able to open the gate.  A combo handle with a button style assembly would have been the SMART thing there.  The # of actuators we install at work keeps climbing.  Hard.  

 

Back on topic.  Why not have just put on a tire that is more aggressive than those so called "AT" Michelin LTX AT2 but less aggressive than the Hankook Dynapro MT2?  Something like the Firestone Destination XT that would potentially offer more sway control and not lead to a towing reduction?

      Just traded in my 2015 Sierra.  I have a few goodies that am looking to sell
       
       
      I have an Axxess Bluetooth data processor.  This is a plug in play setup and no oem wire tapping.   In case you want to turn that chime down and run both aftermarket mids and highs and subs you will need this.  All can be controlled via bluetooth and for these models comes with adapter harness that is plug in play. 
      $140 plus shipping

      I also have some Wet Okole Real Tree Camo seat covers that are in great shape.  They are for the crew cab with the middle seat in the front.  Im told they will also work on the console models but dont hold me to that. $300

       
      Pulled Out the Mids and Highs as well
      These Are Hertz HCX 6x9s and 6.5s for the doors

      $180  for the 6.5" regularly $399 

      Pulled out the 2 12' Kicker Comp R DVC 2ohm subs
       
       
      Brand New Bushwacker Fender Flares .  The set is still in the plastic.  I had to take them out of the box to transport them home.  ALL seals, and bolts and everything they come with still brand new
      $300 comes with everything

      GM upper console with home link $50

      Front valence under front bumper.  If local you can have.

      Asking $60

       
      Weathertech Digital Fit Floor liners 
      in great shape.  The rear was never installed. Will clean up though.  These are for the jump seat style 2014-2018.  The front goes all the way across.  If you have console I’m sure they could trim the middle off to.  Anyways asking $100 bucks for both front and rear.  

       

      Still Adding pictures so message me if interested, or want more pics or some pics of things that arent uploaded yet

      I have been through the menu's 100 times.   How do you get the exterior temperature on the instrument cluster?
       
      It shows up fine on the Infotainment system however when using car play you cannot see external temp.   Simply looking to have it displayed on the instrument cluster.
       
      Seems like an easy feature to be missing and get added.
       
      Thanks!

      To all my haters, continue to hate just want to preface that 😂.  Anyway I am looking to get some leveling blocks as my truck is still nosediving.  I love the way the 3” blocks look but I have also read that the upper control arms tend to pop out with any blocks bigger than 2”. Does anyone have experience with that happening?  Also thinking about just taking out the rear blocks.  Or both. Any experience appreciated. Also does anyone know what this does about warranty?

      Hello,
       
      I own a 2007 Chevy 2500HD Classic, I was driving around when suddenly my ABS light came on as well as my service brake system light came on. When this happened my transmission became stuck in 1st gear in drive mode, but when I used the manual mode to shift it into 2nd it worked, also when I put the truck in reverse it stalled on me, these are a very strange group of symptoms and they’ve all started happening at once, also the speedometer stoped working as well.  I have no idea where to start with this so I’m hoping someone has a slight idea of where to start, Thank you!

      First is a Diablo I3 Platinum Tuner that is unmarried.  I bought it brand new from Diablo and used a couple times. This is thing is awesome if you wanna customize how your truck shifts, get a custom tune from Diablew.  He is the man.  Sadly there were some issues that popped up on my truck that GM Acted as though they didnt do.  So I will use this to post things as i can get pictures of them.  
      Paid $500 for this
      Asking $280
