There are no definite details regarding the 2023 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss. However, from the spy shots, it looks like it got some new touches.
Speculation and rumors about the development of the 2023 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss keep popping up day by day. Until finally, there were spy shots at the end of 2021, which showed the 2023 Trail Boss was undergoing off-road trials with Hummer EV. This means the truck will indeed enter the production stage in the future.
Some Upgrade Touches
It’s been a long time since the prototype of the standard 2022 Trail Boss was seen undergoing tests for the first time. This time, the General Motors Company engineers seemed to be really working hard in updating the previous generation to present an off-road-oriented truck by conducting direct off-road trials. These test spy shots are important for enthusiasts because they help answer your curiosity about what the 2023 variant will look like.

Since the 2023 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss has not yet been fully released, information about it cannot be guaranteed to be 100% accurate. Moreover, Chevrolet is still silent about the details of this truck. We can only speculate from the outstanding spy shots. One thing for sure is that all details of the new Silverado Trail Boss will be revealed to the public for the first time at the Detroit Motor Show. Well, it is expected to be held in September 2022.
Exterior & Interior
Everyone, especially Chevy truck fans, will surely like the design changes for this latest model of a pickup truck. This is shown in the next generation, namely the fourth generation of pickups. As seen from the spy shot photos, the cab looks different from the previous model. The curve of the cab may be inspired by the compact truck of the General Motors family. This will increase aerodynamics and fuel economy.
The installation of a rectangular grille with two horizontal bars covered in front makes this truck even more aggressive in appearance. The front spotlights are designed for daytime running lights with a revamped shape of light reflection. As we know, aluminum is generally used as a material for pickup bodies. This time in 2023 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss, the material seems to not only dominate the body but is also used for combinations in other parts. In short, the 2023 series will gain additional beauty.
Besides the standard equipment that has been confirmed in the new Silverado Trail Boss, other upgrades will also be carried out because this truck is designed to accommodate off-road adventurers. Some parts of the Z71 Salvador model will be taken as a reference, one of which is the use of 2 suspensions in the lift. This has been confirmed by Chevrolet officials that the results of the off-road test are really a relief. The total weight of the 2023 Trail Boss is estimated at 5,000 pounds. This weight is lighter when compared to the Z71. Therefore, the driver will be easier to drive and maneuver. Plus, the use of fuel will be more efficient.
The Upcoming New Engine
Well, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, which currently has 3 trim levels, is very popular among pickup truck fans because of its efficiency. The engines used in the 3 trim variants are different. The first is a V6 engine with a capacity of 4.3 liters, then there is a V8 engine with a capacity of 5.3 liters, and the last one is the engine with the most power, namely Turbo-8 with a capacity of 6.2 liters.
Then, which engine will be passed on to the 2023 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss? Or instead, will there be a new engine to match? Chevrolet officials have not provided a clear answer to this question. We still have plenty of time to guess and speculate about the engine of this truck.
However, strong rumors say there will be a new engine launched by Chevy to replace the three engines above. The new engine is expected to produce more HP and torque to support off-road adventure activities. The 2023 Trail Boss is also rumored to be coming with two-wheel drive variants, 2WD and 4WD, with 8-speed automatic transmission. It is not yet known where the new Trail Boss gearbox will be placed.
Unfortunately, until now there has been no official information regarding the price that will be installed for the 2023 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss. However, if we look at the price of the previous generation, which is around $47,000, the price of the current generation will be much more expensive.
