Did MLB All-Star Game MVP Shane Bieber Pick the Right Chevy Truck?
Each year after the MLB All-Star Game, the Most Valuable Player is announced. As part of winning the prestigious title and a cool translucent bat trophy, the MVP typically gets to choose between owning one of two Chevrolet vehicles. Last year, Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman took home a new Chevy Camaro SS Coupe over the Colorado ZR2. However, the decision was a little harder to make this year, as Cleveland Indians pitcher Shane Bieber had to choose between two Chevy trucks.
Bieber had to choose between a red 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss and a white 2020 Silverado HD High Country. Both trucks have hefty price tags, with the Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss sitting at an MSRP of $50,195 and the Silverado HD High Country coming in at $62,695. They both offer incredible capability and power, too.
2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss
When equipped with its standard 5.3-liter V8 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss can get an exhilarating 355 horsepower and can tow up to 9,700 pounds. Inside, the LT Trail Boss has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear window defogger, a 40/20/40 split-bench front seat with under-seat storage, and first- and second-row all-weather floor mats.
2020 Silverado 2500HD High Country
The all-new 2020 Silverado HD High Country comes with a standard 6.6-liter V8 and a six-speed heavy-duty automatic transmission, letting the truck get up to 401 horsepower. Inside the top-of-the-line trim’s cabin you’ll find heated seats in the front and back, a Bose® sound system, and a bevy of helpful safety systems like Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
What did Bieber choose as his new ride? The Cleveland star said, “I think I’m going to go with Big Red here,” indicating the 2019 Silverado 1500. While this decision might be surprising given the Silverado HD High Country’s increased power and premium amenities, it’s possible Bieber might’ve just liked the color of the truck he chose. He also could have opted for the Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss because of its more athletic ability to go off-road instead of the pure power of towing and hauling from the HD. We may not know his reasoning, but by the look of his smile, he definitely likes his choice.
