The all-new 2019 Silverado Custom Trailboss (new trim for 2019) adds off-road equipment to the Custom, including a 2-inch suspension lift and the Z71 Off-Road Package with a locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho shocks, 18-inch wheels and Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires.

The Chevrolet Silverado recently won three J.D. Power awards following studies that focus on customer satisfaction.

Six different Chevrolet cars, trucks and SUVs won a total of nine awards in J.D. Power’s 2017 Vehicle Dependability, Initial Quality and APEAL Studies.

“These awards highlight the automotive brands that are continually exceeding customer expectations and leading the way in terms of dependability, quality and overall customer satisfaction,” J.D. Power states in a press release.

“Chevrolet is winning with consumers because our designers, engineers and dealers are focused on delivering great products and a great ownership experience,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and brand chief of Global Chevrolet. “This recognition from J.D. Power shows Chevrolet’s strength and underscores the momentum we have across the board.”
