Power Spike: Chevy Adds 6.2L V8 Option to More Silverado Trims

If you’re a fan of beefy, V8-powered trucks, we’ve got a bit of good news to pump up your Friday. Because while buyers previously had to opt for the pricey LTZ or High Country trims to get the General’s 6.2-liter V8 in a Silverado, it’s now available on three more trims.

Yup, Chevy is giving the people what they want, and it’s a great thing.

With 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, it’s a great choice to power Chevy’s iconic Silverado, and now it’s available on LT Trail Boss, Custom Trail Boss, and RST trim levels.

Recently, AutoNation Drive’s own Omar Rana got a chance to drive the 2019 Trail Boss with the 5.3-liter V8, which makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, and he thought it was a great truck worthy of the Silverado name. Here’s a taste of what he had to say about it:

To us, a pickup is about having a fearless presence and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4WD Trail Boss delivers. It has a very comfortable ride quality and soaks up bumps and potholes with total ease. Acceleration is remarkably smooth and swift for a large beast that weighs over 5,000 pounds. Yes, it is notably large but driving it on a daily basis didn’t really pose a challenge.

You can read Rana’s full review here, but we’re pretty confident he’s have liked it even more than he did it if had more power. Because who doesn’t love more power?

If you’re looking for a hard-working truck that’ll help you get the job done and them some, head to your local AutoNation Chevy dealer today.

Once you get behind the wheel of this big rig, you’ll understand why it’s been getting such great reviews!
