Silverado Trims

If you’re a truck lover, you’re not just a truck lover. It’s, as they say, all in the details.

The truth is that there’s a Chevy truck out there for everyone. You might be looking into a new pickup to help you with your day job. Or, you could just fancy the idea of having a souped-up ride that can handle whatever life throws at you. As I said, there’s a truck for everyone and that’s never been truer than with the Chevy Silverado.

With eight different trim levels, any aspiring truck owner will be able to find their happy place. From the Work Truck to the High Country, there’s a Silverado with your name on it.

Work Truck

Adventure starts with a vehicle that’s up for anything. Trailblazer combines comfort you want, the versatility you need, and the technology to make every moment count.

As the name implies, this trim level is for getting stuff done. Having 12 standard tie-downs on the Work Truck means you’ll have peace of mind while hauling any precious cargo.

But, the utility of the Work Truck doesn’t stop with the punch of a card. With Chevy Infotainment 3 System1 standard, you’ll have support for Apple CarPlay2 and Android Auto3, giving you hands-free access to phone calls, music, navigation and more.

The Work Truck also pulls double duty as a family vehicle as it comes equipped with Chevy Teen Driver4. Anytime your new driver gets behind the wheel, you’ll be able to track their driving habits and even set limitations, such as maximum radio volume and speed.

It’s called a Work Truck. It should be working for you.


At first glance, the thing that will catch your eye about the Custom Silverado is the unique grille and body-color bumpers. With a valiant “CHEVROLET” insignia cut into the front end, the Custom Silverado conveys a strong, bold stance that is carried throughout its design. That stance can also be seen in the 20-inch Bright Silver painted aluminum wheels every time the sun catches them just right. It can be seen in the truckbed itself, the biggest in its segment5. It can be seen in the signature LED taillamps that complement the body-color bumper. And, it can be seen in the enhanced CornerStep footwells, now bigger than ever.

Designed to take you off the beaten path, the Custom Trail Boss Silverado is for the adventurer in all of us. With the two-inch lift, hill descent control, Z71 off-road package, and the trailering package all standard on the Custom Trail Boss, your new ride will be fully equipped to take you to your happy place, away from the hustle and bustle. Plus, features like Bluetooth connectivity will keep you in touch with the world just when you want to.


If you’re interested in a truck that you can truly call yours, look no further than the Silverado LT. In addition to fantastic standard features, like Rear Vision Camera and Remote Keyless Entry, you’ll have access to a multitude of optional features you can pick and choose from. From OnStar® and Chevrolet’s connected services6 to help you out in sticky situations to extra safety features, like Rear Cross Traffic Alert4 to tell you when something’s in your rear blind spot, you’ll be able to make your Silverado your Silverado


The 2019 Silverado RST, or Rally Sport Truck, boasts an impressive standard 2.7L turbo-four engine with 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque, giving you a pickup truck ready to haul itself from A to Z. Add to that an available Bose® premium sound system, standard Chevy Infotainment 3 System1 and standard push-button start, and you’ve got a new ride that brings a fresh style to the 2019 Silverado lineup.

Just as the Custom Trail Boss was designed to go off-roading, so too is the LT Trail Boss. However, with this trim level, you’ll be getting access to a few features not found on the Custom Trail Boss, such as a motorized tailgate that opens with the push of a button, making things even simpler when your hands are full. Both the Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss trim levels provide a convenient hitch guideline that appears on the Chevy Infotainment 3 System1 when the truck’s transmission is in reverse. But, the LT Trail Boss goes a few steps further with the ability to pan, zoom and tilt the camera and use the camera to briefly check the trailer while driving4. All of these features and more make the LT Trail Boss a great truck to take on that adventure you’ve been dreaming of.


The Silverado LTZ is packed with more standard features than any of the aforementioned trim levels. This includes Chevy’s unique Surround Vision4 that creates a 360-degree view of your Silverado using the five cameras found on the front, back and sides of the vehicle. Then there’s the tailgate that not only goes down with the push of a button but back up, too. Pair these features with things like wireless charging for supported smartphones and a head-up display with useful information projected onto the windshield and you have a 2019 Silverado that’s here to provide a feature-rich experience from the start of your trip to the end.

High Country

While the High Country shares a lot of features with the LTZ, the differences are most notable in their appearances. The LTZ utilizes a lot of chrome accents, especially on the front-end of the vehicle, while the High Country provides a mix of chrome and body-color. The High Country badging can also be seen on several places on the truck and, if you opt for the 6.2L V8 engine, extra badging will let you show that off, too. Pair these extras with the standard, wheel-to-wheel, chrome assist steps on both sides of the truck and you’ll have a taste of everything the High Country has to offer.

There you have it. These are just some of the features you’ll find on the eight different trim levels offered by the Chevy Silverado. Stop into a local Metro Detroit Chevy Dealer to speak with a product specialist to show you even more!
