Chevy announced they will be launching the all-new medium-duty Silverado Class 4 and Class 5 trucks at The Work Truck Show 2018 in Indianapolis from March 4-6. The new truck will replace the Kodiak, which was a medium-duty truck manufactured by Chevy and GM in the past.
To make it easy for businesses to get what they need, the new commercial-duty trucks will be available with a few different configuration options. Buyers will have options of a regular or crew cab, a 2WD or 4WD drivetrain, and various wheelbase lengths.
The new medium-duty Silverado 4500 and 5500 trucks will be available with a Duramax diesel engine and an Allison transmission, but engine specifics won’t be revealed until the trucks debut at the show. Chevy currently offers a Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo Diesel V8 engine on the Silverado 2500 and 3500 models, so that engine could be a possible option on the new medium-duty models. The available Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo Diesel V8 engine produces 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque, and provides a maximum towing capacity of 23,000 pounds.
That’s all the information we know for now, but we’ll definitely be providing updates as we get them. Chevy has stated that the trucks are expected to go into production in late 2018. In the meantime, Miami Lakes Automall has heavy-duty Chevy Silverado 2500 and 3500 models available today.
