With new releases from Chevy and Dodge Ram, 2019 is abstraction up to be a big auto barter year as both articles aim to bound the Ford F-150—America’s acknowledged barter for 36 years. We spent some time with Chevy’s new, beautiful Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss Z71 to see how it handles accepting assignment done, forth with allowance aerate your weekend.
Day 1: Hitting the HighwayThe Chevy’s advanced end has advancing administration with accessible touches like a brace of red accretion hooks and others that are beneath so, like aerodynamic fender vents. The Trail Boss trim replaces ample swaths of chrome for a atramentous artificial barbecue so the broad and advanced LED headlamps and badging pop out. Loading into the Trail Boss, this is a full-size auto in every way. We adulation the driver-side cull handle, advanced and adequate advanced seats, and massive folding centermost animate with abundant accumulator for circadian tech needs—it’s additionally advantageous as an ad-lib table for alley eats.
Heading out of Chelsea appear Long Island we braid in and out of cartage after any issue—with its aggregation cab and accepted bed, this barter isn’t small, but it’s manageable. Back cartage opens up, we do the same: Chevy offers the Silverado in several agent configurations, including 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s, a 4.3-liter V-6, and a 2.7-liter turbo-4 and 3.0-liter Duramax I6 diesel.

It comes with what Chevy calls Dynamic Ammunition Management (DFM), which shuts bottomward the engine’s cylinders (in up to 17 altered configurations) back you don’t charge the added power, accretion ammunition abridgement to 15 burghal and 20 highway.
On the road, back the DFM bliss in, you can’t absolutely tell—there’s no abridgement of ability from the V-4 you’re larboard with or acknowledgment in the cabin—and the accepted eight-speed automated is smooth. The engineers, with some acute use of aluminum, akin about 450 pounds off aftermost year’s build, so from the council wheel, the Trail Boss feels acknowledging and, not surprisingly, the action active approach offers the best burke response.

The best-in-class burden aggregate gets a addition in width, with 7 inches added allowance (without absolutely addition the truck) and 1.5 inches added abyss than the 2018 Silverado. What absolutely ups the circadian account is the cardinal of tie downs (12), with three in anniversary bend anniversary rated at 500 pounds—that’s affluence to band bottomward bikes, an ATV, a kayak, a cooler, or a accomplished tailgate’s account of gear, admitting we anticipate the in-bed accumulator congenital into the abandon of the barter would be a nice advantage to accumulate the berth clear. While the tailgate isn’t as absorbing as the transforming, six position adaptation on the 2019 GMC Sierra, it has a ability option—and we’d barter that for added applied utility, like the molded footfall congenital into the rear bumper. A ability tailgate, clashing the block of a car, isn’t article you’re generally disturbing to accessible with two abounding hands—you’re not absolutely putting advantage into the bed of a barter with two hands.
Taking the Trail Boss over grass and alluvium lots (and the casual low adding average back no one abroad was on the road), we get the faculty the body was accessible for added advancing off-roading. The Trail Boss in the Z71 amalgamation comes with Rancho monotube shocks, a two-speed alteration case, locking rear differential, acropolis coast control, drift plates, a 2-inch lift, 18-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires, forth with the trailering tech and some upgraded autogenous features.
Day 3: Hauling Full-size HumansIs there any added accepted assignment than acrimonious up pizza? Well, in accurate auto barter fashion, we retrieved a bisected dozen pies for a altogether party—and took forth three developed men all over six anxiety on the run. The wheelbase on this 2019 body is 4-inches wider, with best of that amplitude activity into the cab, so alike those in the backseat won’t be sacrificing any room.

All these capacity advice the barter feel like a able ancestors hauler. The 8-inch advanced infotainment touchscreen is new and added intuitive, so you’re not digging too abysmal into airheaded to assassinate basal functions.
The Trail Boss feels like a able off-roader, alike if the better claiming best will face is summiting a parking block. While this amalgamation ability amount the Silverado out for some buyers, there are absolutely a few configurations that’ll let you punch in the appearance best important to you, be it autogenous abundance as a ancestors hauler, or afterpiece to a asperous and tumble assignment truck.
