There are several different Chevy Silverado trim levels and more “packages” with a huge variety of options including the Z71, Rally, All Star, and Texas editions. With so many options and trim levels to choose from, it can be confusing to know which one is best for you. Our recommendation is to decide what options and features are most important to you and focus on those.
One of the most common features many people want in their Silverado is a leather interior. Simply put, you would have to purchase at least the LTZ trim in order for your truck to come with leather from the manufacturer. But if leather or temperature seats are the most important features for you, we recommend getting an LT or RST and adding Katzkin leather. These are the two least expensive trims that come with most of the features people care about. You’ll save thousands of dollars by adding leather to a truck with a lower trim. But if you really want a truck with a sunroof, you’ll have to purchase a more expensive trim.
Here’s a quick break down of the different Chevy Silverado trim levels and what each one includes. This is not a comprehensive list of every feature included on all of the trims. Instead, we’re showing you some of the most commonly asked about features. The Silverado comes in eight different trim level configurations. We can replace cloth or leather seats with a variety of different product options. Even if your truck already comes with leather from the manufacturer, we can replace it with high-quality, custom leather, chosen by you.
This is the base level of all the Silverado trim levels. If you need a truck for work without any add-ons or additional features, this is a great option. It comes with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, 17-inch wheels, a 120-volt power outlet, Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility, but it lacks many of the other frills like leather seats, power seats, and a wifi hotspot.
The Custom trim comes with a 7-inch diagonal touchscreen, Bluetooth audio streaming for two devices at the same time, Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatibility, 20-inch aluminum rims, a rear window defogger, cloth seats, a wifi hotspot, and more. The Custom trim comes with the majority of features people want, with the exception of leather, and at a very affordable price.
The Custom Trail Boss is ready for off-road adventures with its 2-inch lift, 18-inch black-painted rims, Z71 off-road package, remote start, and cloth seats. This Silverado trim is a great option if you’d like to save some money at the dealership but add custom Silverado leather and temperature seats. You don’t want to be off-roading in the wild with cloth seats that trap in dirt and stains.
The LT starts to get a lot more expensive as it comes with an 8-inch touch screen, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, keyless open, push-button ignition, and wifi hotspot. However, the LT doesn’t come with leather seats so it’s another good option if you like the aforementioned options but would also like a leather interior from Katzkin.
This trim level comes with 18-inch silver-painted rims, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated steering wheel, keyless open, push-button ignition, an auxiliary power outlet, and cargo area lighting. Keep in mind that this trim level does not come with ventilated seats or leather.
The LT Trail Boss is an adventuring beast. It comes with a 2-inch lift, black-painted rims, Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires, leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, keyless open, push-button ignition, all-weather floor liners, Z71 off-road package, heated steering wheel, and heated front bucket seats with a center console in the front. Cloth seats are standard on this trim.
The LTZ comes with perforated leather front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power tailgate, heated and ventilated front seats, a rear-sliding power window, rear heated seats, and much more. This is the lowest trim level that comes standard with leather seats.
The High Country is the top-of-the-line Silverado trim level so it comes with all the bells and whistles. It comes with a two-tone grill of bronze and chrome, heated and ventilated front seats, perforated leather seats, heated back seats, driver memory with two presets for the driver’s seat and mirrors, power-sliding rear window, front and rear park assist, side blind zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and a lot more.Choose Your Design
There’s a whole host of reasons to choose Katzkin for your truck’s leather interior. For instance, if having leather seats is the only reason you want a higher trim level such as an LTZ (the lowest Silverado trim level that comes with leather seats), you can easily save more than $5,000 by purchasing an LT instead and adding Katzkin leather to it.
A lot of our customers tell us that they prefer Katzkin leather over OEM seats because they get to choose from a huge variety of designs without sacrificing quality. We can make your seats as custom as you’d like. With more than 120 different colors, materials, and designs to choose from, it’s almost impossible not to find the design you’re looking for. But, if you can’t, you’re also more than welcome to design your own seats and we’ll make them for you. This is one of the reasons we replace OEM leather with Katzkin so much of the time. Even if you buy a High Country, you don’t get those kinds of choices from the OEM.Choose Your Design
If you want heated and ventilated seats added to your truck, we can do that with our Degreez package. We can add up to three levels of heat and three levels of ventilation to your seats. The majority of Silverado owners go with one of the lower trim levels such as an LT or Custom. The LT comes with heated front seats but the Custom does not. Neither comes with ventilated seats. If you want ventilated seats from the OEM, you’ll have to purchase an RST or High Country. That results in you spending thousands more on a truck for the leather and temperature seats. We recommend you keep that money with a lower trim level and add our custom temperature seats.
Most of the Silverados we work on, and we work on a lot, are brand new. If you’re like most of our customers, you’ll purchase your new truck and take it to a Katzkin installer to get new custom leather added. But we frequently work on older trucks too. In fact, we can install leather on Silverados as old as the 90s. Also, it doesn’t matter if you have a crew cab, single cab, or double cab, we’ve worked on every cab style and can add leather to yours.
Approximately 25% of people, or one out of four, in the US, lease their vehicles. Leasing can be nice because it gives you a lower monthly payment and if you have a business, you can easily write it off on your taxes.
When leasing, if you want to add additional features such as bigger wheels, rhino liner in the bed, etc., you have to fully pay for those items over the course of the lease. For example, if you want custom rims and tires to go with your new truck, and they cost $2,500, you either have to pay $2,500 upfront or add it to your monthly payment. If it’s a 36-month lease, it’ll cost you an extra $69.44 every month on your lease.
The beauty of Katzkin is that they can be residualized on your lease. That’s a fancy way of saying you won’t have to pay the entire cost of the seats over the course of the lease. After all, you’re not BUYING the seats, you’re just adding them to your lease. This can cut down the cost of your lease significantly and save you money! You’re not buying the truck, you’re leasing it.
It’s also worth noting that most people lease lower trim levels and that don’t come with leather seats. So this is an inexpensive way to add them!
