Chevrolet Class 4/5 Trucks
Chevrolet has just announced they will be revealing two new trucks this year at The Work Truck Show, the Chevy Silverado 4500HD and the Chevy Silverado 5500HD. These trucks are going to be Chevrolet’s entry back into the Class 4 & 5 truck market. GM and Chevrolet enthusiasts and business owners that use(d) the previous versions (Topkick & Kodiak) of these trucks have been waiting for the large automakers to re-enter this market since they stopped production in 2009.
The Automaker has been short on the details with the two new Class 4 and 5 trucks, but we can venture a guess that these trucks will come equipped with the new 6.6-liter L5P V8 Duramax diesel engine and hope for an optional gas engine, both paired with the Allison Transmissions. Chevrolet and Navistar’s expertise will be combined once again to bring the people what they want.
Based on the teaser image that was leaked, these trucks will have an aggressive rigid front end with large tires, comparable in size to the Ford F-650 and F-750. They will be offered in a cab chassis, which opens up these trucks for endless uses in the commercial space.
Chevrolet will be revealing these trucks on March 6, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana at The Work Truck Show. The show is going to be well attended like always so start planning now if you are looking to add these trucks to your fleet.
