V8 Power, Off-Road Ability And Towing? This Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Truck Checks All The Boxes!

2021 chevy silverado 1500 trail boss towing off-road

This brand new Chevy Silverado Trail Boss is unique; combining good off-road capability with powerful towing abilities. Sweet!

Our friend Tim just bought this brand-new Chevy Silverado Trail Boss. It is very unique among regular Trail Bosses as it was ordered special from the factory. To be specific, it’s a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss, with the long-bed option, off-road (trail-boss) package, and a 6.2-liter V8. It’s painted in Satin steel-metallic, and it has (pretty much) the base interior.

Keep in mind: this brand-new Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss is (currently) one of GM’s most capable half-ton trucks, but it’s not known for serious towing. Still, owner Tim wanted it equipped with a gooseneck receiver. This half-ton is rated to tow 8,500 lbs (gooseneck), and 9,000 lbs regular towing. It is also rated at 1,558 lbs of maximum payload. That may seem like paltry numbers for a half-ton truck that’s dedicated to towing, but this truck can off-road too.

It has a factory two-inch lift and it sports Rancho shocks. Goodyear Wrangler Territory M/T tires are also part of this package. Along with the rear locker, low-range transfer case, and other Trail Boss packaging, it sure doesn’t look like a towing rig.

This brand-new Chevy Silverado Trail Boss has excellent running gear

The 420 horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 makes 460 lb-ft of torque, normally, but Tim ordered the GM intake and exhaust system which is said to add power (up to 15 hp). It’s hooked up to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

TFLstudios owned a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss, and we absolutely loved it. It was rock-solid reliable, towed well, and was impressive off-road. Honestly, many of us miss that truck, and we look at Tim’s new acquisition and rub our chins in contemplation.
