We’re writing a series of articles highlighting some of the best package delivery trucks available. Today we’re going to shed some light on the Chevy Cutaway Chassis.
The Chevy Cutaway Chassis is a workhorse of the parcel delivery sector. Low initial cost and high durability make it an easy buy for many FedEx contractors. It’s easy to see why it is a popular choice. With 4.8L and 6.0 V8 options, the Chevy Small block is well known for its durability and ease of maintenance. The 4500 Chassis also has the added option of the 6.6L Duramax diesel. The box upfits on the Chevy Cutaway Chassis can range from 12′ to 18′ long and the GVWR ranges from 9,900 lbs on the 3500 chassis to 14,200 lbs on the 4500 chassis.
4.8L V8 Gas with 285 Horsepower and 295 lbs.-ft of Torque
6.0L V8 Gas with 342 Horsepower and 373 lbs.-ft of Torque
6.6L V8 Diesel with 262 Horsepower and 525 lbs.-ft of Torque (with Allison Transmission)

The Chevy Cutaway is a great vehicle for FedEx contractors in rural areas or residential routes. Because the cab’s construction is based off of the cargo van and not a step van, it is much quieter and more comfortable for longer hauls between deliveries.

Looking for a 4500 series that’s gas and has rear fuel tank as I want to put rear sliding doors on both the right and left side. I want a 18 foot box with pass through sliding door to cab. Would like to have low step in type box but have box be a taller box where I could possibly go with 3 high shelves instead of typical 2 high. I want a backup camera, chrome grill, PW, PL, Cruise Control, CD player and Air. If they make this in 4×4, I would be interested in knowing price of both a rear wheel and a 4×4.
