If you’re considering purchasing a new truck, you may want to consider the 2022 Chevy Trail Boss. This truck offers a variety of features and benefits, including an off-road package called Z71, a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine, Adaptive cruise control, and more. The 2022 Trail Boss is similar to the High Country, but it has additional features.
Z71 Off-Road Package
The 2022 Chevy Trail Boss Z71 Off-Road package is a great way to improve your truck’s off-road capabilities. This package offers a two-inch suspension lift and Rancho monotube shocks. It also comes with a hill-descent control and an automatic locking rear differential, which allow you to drive with confidence and ease off-road.
The Z71 off-road suspension package is standard on the Trail Boss and ZR2 trims. It adds Rancho shocks, a 2-inch lift, 18-inch wheels, an automatic locking rear differential, and hill descent control. This package also comes with a 2-inch lift kit, factory skid plates, and HD heavy-duty air filters.
Adaptive Cruise Control
If you want to take advantage of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), you should know that it will not steer your vehicle for you. You will still need to keep a close eye on the road and apply the brakes if necessary. This feature is best used in flat, straight roads and does not work on freeway ramps or in windy conditions. The system also cannot detect traffic signs or lights, so you need to remain in control of the steering wheel.
The Adaptive Cruise Control feature is a step up from conventional cruise control. It will keep a predetermined distance from the car in front of you. If it detects another vehicle, it will either brake or accelerate to maintain a pre-set distance. This is a big step in the direction of autonomous cars.
Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System
The Chevrolet Trail Boss is available in black with a JET BLACK interior. It is equipped with WiFi Hotspot, an Onboard Communications System, Satellite Radio, 4×4, and a 10-speed automatic transmission. It also comes with Chevrolet Infotainment, including Lane Keeping Assist and Smart Device Integration.
The infotainment system is based on Android Automotive OS, which integrates Google services and Google Maps. It differs from Android Auto in that Android Auto runs on the phone and is projected to the dashboard display, while Android Automotive OS is baked into the hardware of the car. Because Android Automotive OS uses the onboard OnStar Services connection, it works even if you don’t have a phone in the car.
Chevy Duramax Diesel Powertrain Upgrades
Chevy has made some improvements to the Duramax diesel powertrain on the Trail Boss 2022 model. It is now more fuel efficient and more powerful. The new 305 horsepower Duramax diesel delivers 495 pound-feet of torque, up from 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft in the previous model. The new engine is also equipped with a new turbo compressor and improved fuel injectors. A 10-speed automatic transmission is also available.
The 3.0-liter Duramax diesel engine is expected to provide excellent fuel economy and should be able to start more quickly. It should also be quiet and have plenty of passing power. The Duramax has become one of the most popular powertrain upgrades from GM in recent history.
Full Line of Powerful Full-Size Pickups
Chevy Trail Boss 1500 offers a full line of powerful full-size pickups, all of which are capable of handling tasks at work or off-road expeditions. Here’s a look at each of the nine trim levels, and what each of them has to offer.
The WT Regular Cab is equipped with 2WD, while the LT Trail Boss and ZR2 come standard with 4WD. Upgrading to 4WD adds approximately $4,600 to the base price. Upgrading to a Custom Double Cab adds another $3,300, and the High Country is loaded to the brim with options and equipment.
