Chevrolet Teases its All-New Silverado Medium-Duty Trucks

Chevrolet will unveil its all-new Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD medium-duty trucks at The Work Truck Show 2018.

The all-new Silverado Class 4 and 5 chassis cab trucks will be on display in Indianapolis from March 6 to March 9 at The Work Truck Show, which is North America’s largest work truck event. Chevrolet hasn’t released very many details on the new 4500HD and 5500HD medium-duty trucks but did say they will be available in regular and crew cab models, with 2WD and 4WD capability, along with a wide range of GWVRs and wheelbases.

Powering them will be Duramax diesel engines with Allison transmissions, a combination that has powered about two million trucks. Inside, the American automaker will offer an expanding suite of driver connectivity and fleet management solutions, such as OnStar, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and a number of telematics offerings.

More details and technical specifications on the Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD will be released when they’re unveiled in March. The medium-duty trucks will go into production late 2018.

“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.”
