What are the New 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Features?

The Chevy Silverado is among the most revered models in the full-size pickup truck segment. Pickup trucks are designed to be flexible platforms with the ability to tow and haul cargo, while also tackling less-than-ideal road surfaces. However, Silverado buyers looking for additional off-road capability will need some special equipment. That’s where the 2022 version of the Silverado Trail Boss comes into the picture. Our team has been getting a lot of calls and emails from potential customers asking about this Silverado model. Let’s take a look at why this trim grade is becoming a fan favourite.

Trail Boss Performance Specs

A pickup truck without an engine isn’t much good to anyone. Chevrolet has made three engine options available with the 2022 Silverado Trail Boss. Budds’ Chevy customers will be able to choose among a 5.3-litre, V-8, 6.2-litre, V-8, or turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder diesel engine. Each of these power plants will produce more than enough power to push the truck through the more unforgiving terrain.

New Interior Design/Equipment for the Trail Boss

The inside of the 2022 Silverado Trail Boss might have more new elements than any other part of the pickup truck. A 13.4-inch colour touchscreen is at the center of the truck’s redesigned dashboard and a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel lies behind the steering wheel. These kinds of features are coming to more Chevy vehicles in the future. 

Because the 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss picked up a new interior and the latest Chevy infotainment system, it also offers Google Built-in, including Google Assistant and Google Maps, as standard equipment. In addition to making the in-vehicle technology easier to integrate with popular smartphones, the Google Built-in technology makes controlling several features with natural voice commands much easier. 

What Sets the Trail Boss Apart From Other Silverado Models?

As its name implies, the 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss is built to take command of off-road environments. Not just any truck can do this. Chevy needed to add a few specialized pieces of equipment to allow the truck to perform as advertised. Some of the highlights offered by the 2022 Silverado Trail Boss include:

  • Factory-installed suspension lift 
  • Z71 Off-Road Package
  • 18-inch high-gloss wheels
  • Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® tires
  • Autotrac® two-speed transfer case
