The entry-level trim of the Chevrolet Silverado is the Work Truck. It's an ideal model for different work duties and even as a fleet vehicle. The WT is fitted with enough features that make it an excellent choice for cheap transportation. The Work Truck gets easy-to-clean vinyl upholstery - this is what you need for a work vehicle. This Silverado model is only available with a 2-wheel drive. When it comes to the cab configuration, the Work Truck comes in a Regular Cab, Double Cab, or Crew Cab.

 When it comes to the bed length, the WT can have 5.75 feet, 6.6 feet, or 8 feet beds. Chevrolet offers three engine options for this trim level - a 4.3-liter V-6 engine, a 5.3-liter V-8, or even a 2.7-liter turbocharged model. The first two engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission while the turbocharged engine is matched to an eight-speed transmission system.

The next Silverado trim level is the Custom. It has the same engine choices, so there is no difference between the Custom and the WT for power and performance.

The Trail Boss trim level offers some additional features to provide a tremendous off-road driving experience. The engine options are the same, plus for this trim Chevrolet adds a 6.2-liter V-8. The Trail Boss is fitted with a 2-speed Autotrac Transfer Case and an Automatic Locking Rear Differential.
