Chevrolet Unveils New 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD and 6500HD
Chevrolet unveiled its first-ever Silverado Class 4, 5 and 6 chassis cab trucks at the NTEA The Work Truck Show. These three new models are the most customer-focused trucks of any major competitor, by being easy to upfit, easy to drive, easy to service and easy to own.
To make sure these new trucks met the needs of its customers, Chevrolet reached out and gathered input from fleet managers, truck drivers, upfitters, technicians and Chevrolet dealers. The result was a truck line the offers many features that competitors often overlook or don’t offer.
“It’s not just numbers on a spec sheet that make us different and better,” said John Schwegman, director of Commercial Product and Medium Duty at GM Fleet. “These new Silverados are designed to solve the most common upfit and ownership challenges fleets have with many of today’s medium duty trucks.”
The Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD and 6500HD will be available in 2WD and 4WD, and are powered by a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel mated to Allison transmissions with a Power Take Off. The Silverado is also the most connected commercial truck, with OnStar, Commercial Link, built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless cellphone charging, Bluetooth and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
