2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss Greer, SC

Whether you want a truck for weekend getaways around South Carolina or hard work in Greer, we all know that the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the king of pickups. What you may not know is that its Trail Boss trim levels — the LT Trail Boss and Custom Trail Boss — are some of its most popular variants.

LT Trail Boss

If you’re looking for a member of the Silverado lineup that effortlessly balances rugged appeal with high-end amenities, it doesn’t get much better than the LT Trail Boss. On one side of the scale, it features an adventure-ready 2-inch suspension lift with the Z71 Off-Road Package, a 120-volt power outlet in the bed for tools or lighting, and a standard 5.3-liter V8 engine that belts out 335 horsepower. On the other, it boasts luxuries like a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with the Convenience Package and a massive collection of driver-assistance features with the Safety package.

Custom Trail Boss

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss delivers some stellar off-road capabilities. It sports the same 2-inch factory suspension lift as the LT Trail Boss, as well as a set of 18-inch wheels with Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTrac® Mud Terrain Tires, the Z71 Off-Road Package, the Trailering Package and more. If you’re a tech-head, fear not — the Custom Trail Boss still comes standard with convenient additions like the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System.

Whatever you plan to use your truck for, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss are stellar options for your work, recreation, and family needs. Check it out in person with a test drive at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer.

Chevrolet Silverado Hailed Among Easiest Vehicles to Repair

2020 Chevrolet Silverado - Greer, SC

With a fervent fan base of loyal owners, a reputation for top-tier reliability, and best-in-class V8 power, the Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most popular pickup trucks in America. As if the beloved truck needed any more resume padding, the Silverado family of vehicles recently received major kudos for its ease of maintainability.

Per U.S. News & World Report, the Chevrolet Silverado is among the top 10 Easiest Cars to Maintain and Repair. Easy maintainability is a big plus for truck owners, as having an easy-to-repair vehicle means you won’t experience long waits and expensive bills for parts due to slow supply chains or hard-to-find parts.

According to John M. Vincent and James MacPherson, writers for U.S. News & World Report, the length of the Silverado’s generations contribute to ease of maintenance. “The models aren’t fully redesigned as often as many vehicles, so there tends to be plenty of repair parts available,” the experts stated. They also credited the truck’s passionate, knowledgeable fan base, which makes it easy to get advice on caring for your truck. Other contributing factors to the Silverado’s high reliability include a spacious, uncomplicated engine compartment and common parts with other popular Chevy vehicles, such as the Tahoe and Suburban.
