I haven’t looked at dollar for dollar but isn’t the trail boss priced almost the same as the RST package. And yes it looks like you can get a nicely equipped LTZ for $56k sticker but I do not like chrome and I like the factory lift and wheel package.
Started looking pretty hard at close to fully optioned TB. Once I started looking into the TB I started seeing AT4’s pop up. A TB with convenience package I/II, bed liner and tb controller is about the same as an AT4 with preferred package and duratracs (both about 56k sticker) Am I missing something? AT4 has cooled seats, perf leather, wireless charging and power passenger seat for 56k. Really like both trucks but I live close to Laura GMC and they have almost 30 AT4’s in stock where most dealers have 2-3 TB’s and Laura has awesome pricing as well. It seems like the better buy is going to be the AT4. What are everyone elses thoughts. I’m sure others are comparing these 2
So the AT4’s with a few options and a 5.3L are about the same as a LT TB with most of the options. The AT4’s have wireless charging, cooled seats, and power passenger seat plus nav. In addition to looking at TB’s I’m considering AT4’s as well now that are low optioned. The sprayed in liner and fender liners are all standard as well
Good to know GM is responding to these issues so quickly. Really leaning towards picking up a 2019 Trailboss this spring and seeing the good support coming from GM on this first year vehicle gives me reassurance to pull the trigger on this new model year.
I know you guys will think I’m crazy but I fly for the Military in a fully digital cockpit. If we rush certain things on startup or change one step during the display boot sequence it can cause a number of issues that manifest during flight. This will cause us to either have to reset certain systems by pulling circuit breakers or shut down the aircraft and remove battery power then attempt to restart. Reading about the issue in that link seems like exactly the same issue. Most of these result around BUS driven electronics that require complex communication between different pieces of hardware. You might be mad that a $60k truck has these issues but I fly million dollar aircraft that experience the same issues.
Thanks for all the replies. I looked into the troubleshooting thread and realized there were a handful more issues than threads posted on the main T1 page. It’s hard for me to really hold the trans issues against GM because ford is having updates on their 10 speed as well due to clunky shifts. My wife has a 9 speed Honda Pilot and it occasionally hunts and sometimes has harder shifts when cold but the highway driving and gas mileage are great so I’m willing to take the trade off. These brake booster MC issues on the AT4’s has me worried though. Im sure the Trailboss trucks are built the exact same, so this could end up being more of an issue. I’m still about 6 months out from purchase so there is still time to work some production line kinks out before I buy one
Thanks for all the replies so far. I remember when the 2019 Trailboss was first unveiled at the Texas motor speedway. I’ve been researching the Trailboss ever since. Some websites indicated that the first model year issues were more prevelant in the earlier years but now auto makers are doing so much testing that its almost a non issue. I’ve also read a report (not sure what site) that over the life of the vehicle 1st model years report no more or fewer problems than other model years in that platform. I’m curious to see if the leaking rear glass becomes an issue or if it’s soemthing they get fixed in production quickly.
