We have tested the new Chevy Silverado 1500 Trail Boss on many off-road trails in the Rocky Mountains, but we have not put into deep mud and water until now. Is this Trail Boss or a mud boss? We are going to find out in this review.

Chevy Silverado 1500 Trail Boss

The Trail Boss differentiates itself from other Silverado 1500 trucks with a simple two-inch factory suspension lift, Rancho shocks, and aggressive Goodyear Wrangler Duratac tires. Naturally, the truck also has other Z71 off-road package components such as skid plates, a mechanically locking (G80) rear differential and a hill descent control.

Under the hood is a 5.3-liter V8 that is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission in this upper trim Trail Boss LT. It’s rated at 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. If you want more power in your off-road truck, then you can wait a little bit for a 2020 Trail Boss model which will offer the bigger 6.2-liter V8 in Custom and LT trims.

How does the Trail Boss do in the deep mud of the hydroline? Check out the video below.
