How does a 2019 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss do if you put nearly 50,000 miles per year on the truck? Here is the latest high mileage truck review. Brett N., the owner of this truck, sent us this detailed report.

“I have a 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Trail Boss 2LT with a 5.3L V8 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission. I bought it on April 19th, 2019. I just clocked over 96,000 miles after two years with the truck. Here is my long-term update on the truck. She has treated me very well.
The ONLY issue I’ve ever had was when the parking sensor in the rear bumper had gotten caked with mud and it disabled the entire parking sensor system until I cleaned it out. Other than that, not one single issue or hiccup with the truck. Oil changes and routine maintenance are everything I have done. It has towed tractors, campers, and loads of gravel. It has been stuck in the mud, and it has been down Jeep trails. It’s no pavement princess and has been used as a truck for truck things as well as a daily driver. I consistently get 20+ MPG on the highway with a lifetime average of 18.7 MPG over the 96,000 miles (picture is included).
I’ve done a few changes to the truck:
- Pulsar LT disabled the DFM and autostop @70k miles
- 1.75″ Readylift leveling with new UCA
- 33.2″ Mickey Thompsons (stock Duractrac tires are 32.6″)
- MBRP cat-back exhaust system
- GM cold air intake
- Stillen intake air scoop
- A few cosmetic updates
