BAY CITY, Mich. -- The Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD - a first for the model line - are officially in production and on their way to dealerships across the country. The trio of beastly pick-up trucks was first unveiled at the 2018 NTEA Work Truck Show, and are designed to be the most customer-focused of any medium-duty trucks in the industry. This launch tops off a record year for GM Commercial, with an expected double-digit year-over-year sales increase.
“When we decided to get back into the medium-duty segment, we were determined to build the truck our customers have been asking for,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. “We listened to the needs of fleet managers, truck drivers, technicians and dealers to design a truck that’s easy to upfit, easy to drive, easy to service and easy to own.”
Due to a clean, straight line rail design free of rivets, brackets, or welds - the new Silverado trucks are popular with upfitters. On top of that, a total of seven cab-to-axle lengths can work for a variety of upfits. The trucks are drawing particularly strong interest from the housing and highway construction, landscaping, and utility industries.
“Demand for the new Silverado medium duty has been exceptionally strong from dealers, Upfitter, and customers,” said John Schwegman, director of commercial product and medium duty, GM Fleet. “With our large vehicle portfolio from sedans to crossovers to large trucks, our Chevy Business Elite dealers can offer commercial customers a one-stop shop that supports their business needs.”
