We just finished playing with Chevy’s all-new Silverado in Wyoming, and while we bring you our first impressions, we present you with this photo gallery of the 2019 Silverado Custom TrailBoss.
The Custom TrailBoss (equipment code 2CX) is essentially a basic off-road-oriented model of the new Silverado. New for the 2019 model year, the Custom TrailBoss is based on the Silverado Work Truck (see pictures of that model here). The model seen here is coated in Summit White paint (color code GAZ), which provides a striking contrast to the truck’s various black accents.
All 2019 Silverado TrailBoss models are equipped with the Z7X suspension package that includes the following features:
- Z71 Off-Road equipment with 2-inch lift
- Rancho monotube shocks
- Hill Descent Control
- Skid plates
- High-capacity air filter
- Z71 hard badge
The front end features a high gloss grille with a black bar and mesh inserts that’s unique to the 2019 Silverado TrailBoss Custom. CHEVROLET is proudly spelled out across the horizontal bar, and a Z71 badge is placed below it, on the driver’s side. The front toe hooks finished in red make a rather nice contrast with the high-gloss black front bumper. The aero curtains, standard on every 2019 Silverado model, are clearly visible at the front. The headlamps are of the basic halogen reflector variety, coupled with equally basic halogen Daytime Running Lamps.
The rear features a high-gloss black bumper along with an integrated dual exhaust setup. Notably, the integrated dual exhaust is available exclusively in conjunction with the 5.3L V8 L82 engine, and that’s exactly what’s under the hood of this trail trooper.
Speaking of engines, the 2019 Silverado Custom TrailBoss can be had with one of the following two gasoline motors:
- The 4.3L V6 LV3 is standard and makes 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque
- The 5.3L V8 L82 is optional and makes 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque
Both engines are mated exclusively to a 6-speed automatic transmission (MYC) with overdrive and tow/haul mode, including Cruise Grade Braking and Powertrain Grade Braking. An electronic, two-speed Autotrac transfer case and a rear locking differential are standard.
The whole ensemble rides on a set of mean 18-inch high-gloss black painted aluminum wheels wrapped in Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires.
The interior is finished in Jet Black with cloth-appointed seats and a 40/20/40-split front bench seat. That is the only interior color, seat material and front seating configuration available on the 2019 Silverado Custom TrailBoss. Single-zone AC is standard, as is a 6-speaker audio system, a 7-inch diagonal touchscreen running the third-generation Chevrolet Infotainment System with Bluetooth for phone and audio streaming. Also standard are a 6-gauge instrument cluster with a 3.5-inch monochromatic driver information center (DIC), a urethane steering wheel, along with assist handles on the A-pillar for both driver and passenger.
The steering wheel only has buttons for the cruise control (on the left-hand side of the wheel). The controls for the audio system and phone would typically be found on the right-hand side of the steering wheel, but they’re blanked out on the Custom TrailBoss due to its Work Truck beginnings.
The rear seat features standard B-pillar-mounted assist handles and – most notably – HVAC vents for heating and cooling.
We should note that the Silverado Custom TrailBoss exists at the opposite end of the Custom spectrum from the Silverado Custom (see those pictures here), which is also based on the Work Truck model but instead features a street truck aesthetic/look.
Enjoy the photo gallery, and share your first impressions of the 2019 Silverado Custom TrailBoss in the comments.
