Chevrolet announced today that it will reveal its all-new Silverado Class 4 and 5 chassis cab trucks at The Work Truck Show 2018, scheduled to take place March 6-9 at the Indianapolis Convention Center. The Work Truck Show is North America’s largest work truck event and this year’s show is expected to draw more than 11,000 public and private truck fleet operators, dealers and equipment distributors.
The all-new Silverado medium-duty trucks will be available in regular and crew cab models, with 4×2 and 4×4 capability and a wide range of GVWRs and wheelbases. They will be powered by Duramax diesel engines and Allison transmissions, an excellent combination that has powered nearly two million trucks.
“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. 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.”
While Fleet sales are aimed at executives buying cars and trucks for companies, many fleet departments at dealerships will sell to the general public, too.
Chevy said that technical specifications for the new Silverado 4500HD/5500HD will be released at the reveal in March. The trucks are expected to go into production in late 2018.
