For a while, GM has been undecided whether or not they would extend the Chevrolet Trail Boss trim to their line of SUVs and heavy-duty pickups. For now, at least, the Silverado 1500 will continue to be the only Chevy to carry the Trail Boss brand name.
The Silverado 1500 Trail Boss edition is an off-road beast, coming standard equipped with the same off-road features as the Z71 Off-Road package, including hill descent control and Rancho shocks. Also included is a 2-inch suspension lift, 18-inch Mud Terrain Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® tires, and other premium off-roading features.
Though the Trail Boss trim may not be making its way into the SUV market for now, the 2021 Tahoe and Suburban will offer a Z71 trim. These models will include 20-inch wheels, upgraded tires, and available features such as Magnetic Ride Control and Air Ride Adaptive suspension. The Z71 trim includes a front skid plate, red tow hooks, and black on black chrome exterior accents. As expected in an off-road vehicle, four-wheel drive will come standard, with a two-speed transfer case for ultimate traction and control.
As far as Chevy’s HD series of pickups go, no HD Trail Boss is in the works, but the Silverado HD Z71 Sport debuted at the 2019 SEMA show and is slated for production in 2021.
