Sometimes, there is no big narrative to a story, and sometimes, that’s A-OK with us. This video, as the title accurately depicts, features a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Custom Trail Boss doing some light off-road work.
Granted, the geotag information has the locale pinned at Pittsburgh. There isn’t an abundance of places to go off-roading there, but the owner of this Trail Boss makes the best of things, splashing through some large mud puddles and enjoying the process of getting an off-road-ready truck, like the Silverado Trail Boss, off the road.
Let’s go back to that video for a second, because we want to clear up any potential confusion about the Trail Boss and the Z71 package. A Silverado Custom Trail Boss, an LT Trail Boss and a Silverado with the Z71 package are three separate vehicles, though it’s easy to mix them up, thanks to the very similar packaging choices by Chevrolet.
All three feature a Z71 off-road suspension, hill descent control technology, an Eaton rear locking differential, an electronic two-speed transfer case, a high-capacity air filter and skid plates. However, the Trail Boss variants offer even more off-road goodies, including of a two-inch suspension lift, upgraded monotube shock absorbers, a Z82 trailering package and 18-inch Trail Boss-specific wheels with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires.
Visually, the Silverado Custom Trail Boss sets itself apart from the Silverado LT Trail Boss with the Chevrolet brand lettered across the front grille, halogen headlights as well as matte black door handles and mirror caps. The LT Trail Boss gets a Bow Tie emblem on the grille, LED headlights, fog lamps as well as gloss black door handles and mirror caps.
The Silverado Trail Boss versions are the most rugged and off-capable among the truck’s numerous trim levels, and we absolutely love seeing people getting their rigs dirty. Or, in this case, getting it muddy and enjoying every minute of it.
