It’s hard to imagine the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 as a forbidden fruit in the United States yet that’s exactly what the Trail Boss and RST Regular Cab models of the all-new truck are.
Only available for the Crew Cab and Double Cab body versions in the U.S., the Trail Boss and RST trims for the 2019 Silverado 1500 are offered in the Middle East in a region-exclusive Regular Cab version. You can check both of them out in the detailed photo gallery released by Chevrolet for its Middle Eastern customers.
All 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab models are offered as standard with the 355 hp 5.3-liter V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Compared to the previous generation model, the 2019 regular cab lineup offers a roomier interior with individual bucket seats and “exceptional safety technology.”
Standard active safety features include the Blind Spot Indicator, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, as well as Front and Rear Park Assist. Connectivity-wise, the 2019 Silverado RST and Trail Boss regular cab models offer a standard 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment 3.0 system, Apple CarPlay, and wireless phone charging.
Model-specific features for the Trail Boss include the standard Z71 Off-Road package which brings a 2-inch factory suspension lift and Autotrack 2-speed transfer case, and 18-inch black wheels shod with GoodYear Wrangler Off-Road tires.
