2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 Trail Boss

Under the hood of this truck is a 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This Trail Boss off-road model with a more luxurious LT trim level is one of the few ways in which you can get this V8 / 10-speed combination. Generally, the 5.3-liter V8 is lated to either a 6-speed or an 8-speed automatics.

The Trail Boss differentiates itself from a regular Silverado 4×4 with a 2-inch suspension lift from the factory, Rancho off-road shocks, and aggressive Goodyear Duratrac all-terrain tires.

The truck is equipped with a hi/lo 4×4 transfer case with the low-range gearing for slow rock crawling. It has a G80 automatic locking rear differential (not a selectable locker). The front suspension is an independent setup and there is no front locking differential.

Roman and Tommy take the truck on a very wet, rainy, and muddy trail in Moab Utah. This trail tests suspension articulation, traction, tire performance, and more.
