GMSV has announced the Chevrolet Silverado LT Trail Boss is on sale now for Q3 delivery.
For those who like their pick-ups full-size, GMSV has announced that the Silverado LT Trail Boss will land in Australian dealerships in the third quarter of 2021.
Based on a Silverado LT 1500, the Trail Boss scores a revised suspension which gives it a 25mm lift up front and 30mm at the rear. The new, taller springs are matched with Rancho mono-tube shock absorbers.
Adding to off-road capability, the Trail Boss comes standard with a rear diff lock, all-terrain skid plates and a heavy-duty air filter, and its 18-inch black alloy wheels wear LT275/65R18 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tyres.
“LT Trail Boss personifies what Silverado is all about. It’s big, it’s tough and it comes ingrained with brand-DNA which showcases qualities of strength, power, performance and no-nonsense work-hard attributes,” Director of GMSV, Joanne Stogiannis said.
“LT Trail Boss is purpose-built, born to perform, offering rugged dependability in off-road settings when exploring on the weekend, but is also at home in urban environments during the week.
“It will enable big thrills and big adventures – it’s a way to really enjoy and experience the road less travelled.”
The Trail Boss is powered exclusively by a 6.2L petrol V8 engine with an aluminium block and heads, variable valve timing, direct injection and stop-start technology. It makes a claimed 313kW at 5600rpm and 623Nm at 4100rpm.
The V8 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission with a column shifter allowing for a large centre console which acts as a storage chest.
Aussie-bound Trail Boss pick-ups land in Australia as left-hand drive vehicles, and are remanufactured as right-hookers by Walkinshaw Automotive Group.
Theres no denying the Trail Boss is a big ute, and GMSV describes the cabin as providing “more than ample lounge chair-like seating for five people, with heated, hard-wearing cloth seats contributing to durability and practicality”.
For those who want to carry a load or haul a big trailer, the Trail Boss provides an 825kg payload capacity and 4.5-tonne braked towing capacity.
On the safety front, the Trail Boss is equipped with front and rear Park Assist, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
