There is arguably no vehicle more ingrained in the American identity than the full-size pickup truck. As time has gone on, these pickups have gotten bigger, more expensive, and much more capable than they have ever been. The success of these vehicles has led manufacturers to expand the types of trucks that they sell, including off-road focused models like the Ford Raptor or the Ram 1500 Rebel. Just the same, General Motors has its Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss.
However, there’s a particular version of the Silverado Trail Boss (and RST) trim levels that aren’t going to be sold in the United States, but rather in the Middle East: a two-door regular cab version. The same goes for the recently announced single-cab GMC Sierra AT4 and Elevation trims. In America, the only regular cab T1 GM trucks available come in stripped-down Work Truck guise. Chevrolet and GMC insist that too few people outside of fleet companies buy regular cab trucks these days, as customers continue to demand evermore refinement in a segment that used to be known for its simplicity.
The Chevrolet Silverado RST and Trail Boss regular cab models come with a 5.3L V8 engine that produces 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and is bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission, just like the Silverado Work Truck sold here.
Chevrolet knows that truck people like to modify their vehicles to fit their taste. For the Middle East market, Chevrolet is offering a catalog of over 115 accessories for the 2019 Silverado regular cab line-up, which they say should allow for more customization than ever before.
The 2019 Silverado regular cab models are now available at Chevrolet dealerships across the region with a starting price of AED 106,800 for a standard Silverado, with the Trail Boss coming it at AED 152,700, and the RST trim costing AED 158,000.
