Chevrolet will reveal its all-new Silverado Class 4 and 5 chassis cab trucks at The Work Truck Show 2018 in Indianapolis, which are vehicles designed with a focus on commercial truck users.
The all-new Silverado medium-duty trucks, which are expected to go into production in late 2018, will be available in regular and crew cab models, with 4x2 and 4x4 capability and a wide range of GVWRs and wheelbases, the automaker said. They will be powered by Duramax diesel engines and Allison transmissions.
Additional technical specifications for the new Silverado 4500HD/5500HD will be released at the reveal in March.
The trucks will also be available with a suite of industry-leading driver connectivity and fleet management solutions, including OnStar, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and a number of telematics offerings, Chevrolet announced.
The Work Truck Show, which will be held March 6 to 9 at the Indiana Convention Center, draws public and private truck fleet operators, dealers and equipment distributors.
“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.
