Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss ranked as one of the editors’ favorite Silverado trims for its off-roading capability at a reasonable price.
“The Custom Trail boss trim includes a rugged appearance package, a two-speed transfer case and the Z71 off-road package, which includes Rancho monotube shocks, a 2-inch suspension lift and improved approach and departure angles,” according to Autotrader writer Eric Brandt.
Brandt also pointed out that because the Custom Trail Boss offers standard 4WD and the pick between two intense engines, a V6 and V8, the well-equipped truck is adept at tackling even the most challenging terrains.
Chevrolet Tahoe Premier
The Chevrolet Tahoe Premier, a well-equipped, full-size SUV, made Autotrader’s list thanks to its ample cabin space, towing capability, and expansive cargo space. But, it’s the trim’s luxury amenities that set the Tahoe Premier apart.
“The Premier trim includes GM’s excellent Magnetic Ride Control, the latest safety tech, power-folding third-row seats, Bose premium audio and the option of upgrading to the muscular 6.2-liter V8 engine. For a family hauler that’s both rugged and premium, check out the Tahoe Premier,” advises Brandt.
