The Silverado 1500 Trail Boss is the epitome of off-road prowess combined with eye-catching aesthetics. It features a 2-inch factory suspension lift and the Z71 Off-Road Package. The Autotrac® 2-speed transfer case and automatic locking rear differential ensure you’re always in control. And let’s not forget the 18-inch high-gloss Black-painted wheels shod with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® MT tires. On the tech side, it sports a 13.4-inch diagonal color touch-screen display and a 12.3-inch enhanced multi-color reconfigurable Driver Information Center. Safety?
