Chevrolet Previews Upcoming Silverado Medium Duty Trucks

Chevrolet has confirmed plans to reveal its all-new 2019 Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD medium duty trucks at the Work Truck Show. The show will commence on March 6th in Indianapolis.

The new Class 4 and Class 5 trucks have been jointly developed by General Motors and Navistar. The two companies announced the partnership back in 2015, at the time committing to launching the medium duty pickups in 2018.

Their goal has been met, as Chevy is saying the new mega Silverados will hit the market in late 2018 as 2019 models. Chevy is going to offer commercial customers the trucks in both regular and crew cab formations with Duramax diesel engines and Allison transmissions.

“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.”

The Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD will mark the company’s first return to the medium duty truck market since leaving it during the company’s 2009 bankruptcy.

    I'm oddly excited for this thing. I'll likely never own one but I think it's badass.

    Looks certified Bad Ass to me. Loving the enlarged 2500 look. Wish it had the ram air too, but with a tilt hood I'm sure that's a non starter.



    Aftermarket will take care of that

    Looks like they found a use for their extra 14/15 Silverado 1500 headlights
