For the second production year, we don’t expect to see notable changes on the new generation of the popular truck. This includes pretty much all version, including the upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss. If you’re a Chevy fan and look for a little off-road adventure, this might be the right choice for you. The Silverado Trail Boss brings upgrades in terms of suspension but also includes a couple of distinctive visual details. Still, keep in mind that the Trail Boss is rather an upgrade than a trim level, as it is available with both Custom and LT trim levels.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss Design
No matter which trim level you choose, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss will come with a couple of important upgrades. Of course, mechanics are on the spotlights. The most important upgrade is a new suspension setup, pretty much the same as for the Z71 badged models. Practically, what you get here are new shocks, skid plates, locking rear differential and similar upgrades that are typical for off-road oriented trucks. This results in higher ground clearance and longer suspension travel.
Still, the suspension, as well as the whole truck is designed in a pretty traditional manner, so you definitely won’t get the most comfortable on-road drive quality. Also, there is really a lot of body roll, much more than you would expect from a truck that debuted last a year ago. All in all, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss is a great off-roading option, but not quite versatile.
Styling and Interior
In terms of the styling, there are few distinctive details compared to standard models. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind in blacked grille and bumpers, which actually look pretty good, if we consider the Silverado’s overdesigned front face. Also, there are unique wheels, off-road tires and a couple of graphics. The rest of the truck isn’t much different than standard models.
You won’t find too many distinctive details on the inside, as the cabin of 2020 Trail Boss looks pretty much the same as in other models. Practically, it mostly depends on the trim level you choose.
As we already mentioned, the Trail Boss comes available with two trim levels. The more basic Custom Trail Boss comes with 18-inch black wheels and standard all-wheel drive. Also, you can count on front tow hooks, power and heated mirrors, deep-tinted glass, cruise control and remote entry. When it comes to tech features, things like a 7-inch touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a six-speaker audio system are standard.
The LT Trail Boss brings a couple of upgrades. There are LED headlights, special exterior trim and dual exhaust setup. On the inside, this version adds standard features like a steering wheel with audio controls, an upgraded driver information display, OnStar with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, and a bigger 8-inch touchscreen.
Also, you can get optional Safety package, with things like lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
Under the hood, you will find a well-known 5.3-liter V8 engine, which is good for 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It comes in a couple with 8-speed automatic transmission.
