Chevrolet reveals regular-cab Silverado RST, Trail Boss, but not for US
GM apparently thinks only American fleet buyers want regular-cab trucks.
General Motors has revealed the Chevrolet Silverado RST and Trail Boss in a regular-cab configuration, but neither truck will be heading to US showrooms.
Ford and GM have relegated two-door full-size pickups to the role of a work or fleet truck in the US, while the Ram 1500 is limited to four-door Quad-Cab and Crew-Cab variants starting with the fifth generation for the 2019 model year.
Spotted by The Drive on Chevy's Middle East press site, photos show how the regular-cab Silverado looks when enhanced with higher-trim details including dark wheels, black grilles, lifted suspension, bucket seats and other upgrades.
There is no doubt that American truck owners tend to gravitate toward four-door models, however the resurgence of the midsize segment suggests some buyers might be interested in a regular-cab Silverado if it was available in US showrooms with a more attractive trim such as the RST or Trail Boss.
For now, GM and its rivals have not indicated any plans to explore such strategies in their home market.
