Welcome to the next generation of Silverado.
Chevrolet’s full-size pickup truck lineup is vital to its bottom line, so it’s always a big deal when it’s time to reveal an all-new Silverado. Only a few weeks after Chevy revealed the new 2019 Silverado 1500 (also pictured here), it has just announced that the all-new Class 4 and 5 chassis cab Silverado trucks will debut at The Work Truck Show from March 6-9 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This is reportedly the largest work truck event in the US, drawing more than 11,000 public and private truck fleet operators, dealers and equipment distributors.
Chevy tells us its new Silverado medium-duty trucks will be offered in regular and crew cab models, with both 2WD and 4WD and a number of GVWRs and wheelbases. Although exact specs weren’t released, the automaker has confirmed the return of Duramax diesel engines and Allison transmissions. “The Silverado 4500HD/5500HD trucks are the flagship of our full-line commercial truck portfolio and we’ve designed them to be among the best in the industry in maneuverability, serviceability, visibility, quietness and comfort, diesel fuel economy and more,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet.
“At GM Fleet, we are determined to deliver on our three pillars: Great Products, Innovative Business Solutions and an Exceptional Customer Experience, and I’m confident that with these new trucks, we’ll exceed the expectations of not only our fleet customers, but the drivers and upfitters as well.”
