While the 4500 and 5500 aren't available yet, you'll be able to drive one of these bold and exclusive medium-duty pickups near the end of next year. Read on to discover the 2018 Silverado's strikingly impressive new features below.

New Medium-Duty Silverado Trucks Announced

The Silverado 4500 and 5500 will come in Regular and Crew Cab models. Owners of the new Silverado are able to choose between 4x2 and 4x4 capabilities as well as a wide variety of GVWRs (Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings) and wheelbases. These trucks will also come equipped with optional OnStar and 4G LTE connectivity to allow you and your crew to stay safe and improve your productivity while on the road. These technologies, combined with the capabilities of the new Silverado models, will also improve the efficiency of fleet drivers around the world. 

The 4500 and 5500 models will be powered by Duramax diesel engines and Allison transmissions, a timeless combination that has provided power to over two million trucks. Since 2001, Chevrolet and GMC trucks have used Duramax engines, accumulating over 100 billion miles of real-world experience. In the 1950s, Allison Transmission, the largest designer and developer of medium and heavy-duty transmission, has provided Chevrolet's trucks with powerful and hard-working technology that's allowed these impressive vehicles to stand out against the competition.

“The first Chevy truck was built in 1918 for small business owners, and we have been expanding the market ever since because customers want specialized trucks that can tow and haul with confidence,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing and Advertising for Chevrolet Trucks.

“We are earning new business because we have more solutions to help businesses grow,” Schwegman said. “The Silverado 4500 and 5500 will stand out because we’ve designed the trucks around how customers work. They will be powerful, highly maneuverable, and among the easiest trucks on the market to upfit with specialized bodies, such as dump bodies, rollbacks, freight boxes and more.”

The new medium-duty Silverado trucks recently announced will provide vehicle owners with state-of-the-art towing and carrying capacity, powerful new engines, and a suite of customizable features.
