As we reported previously, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST and Trail Boss are available as regular cab trucks in the Middle East exclusively, likely making North American truck fans feel a bit left out.
Now the trucks have officially arrived at Middle Eastern General Motors dealers, so if you live in the region and had your eye on one of these rather special pickups, now is the time to reach out to Chevrolet.
In a statement, Chevrolet Middle East brand boss Ahmed Soudodi said they knew Middle Eastern GM customers would respond well to regular cab versions of the higher-end Silverado RST and Trail Boss trims as they closely examine their tastes.
“The Chevrolet Silverado regular cab line-up has already garnered huge acclaim from truck fans across the region since its launch earlier this year, with excitement steadily building around our RST and Trail Boss Middle East exclusive trims,” he said. We pay careful attention to what our customers want, putting them at the heart of our business, and we are proud to be able to offer them even greater choice in purchasing a pickup that truly matches their lifestyle.”
The 2019 Silverado RST and Trail Boss regular cab models are available with GM’s 5.3-liter L83 V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission in the Middle East only. The four door 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Quad Cab and Crew Cab, by comparison, are offered with all five engine and transmission options in the region, including the 6.2-liter L87 V8 and 6.6-liter Duramax diesel.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss regular cab starts at 152,700 AED (about $41,500 USD) while the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST regular cab is priced from 158,000 AWD (about $43,000 USD). Base model regular cab trucks start at 106,800 AED ($29,075 USD) in the Middle East.
