Chevrolet recently made a huge announcement at the State Fair of Texas. To kick off their 100-day celebration of the first century of Chevy trucks, they confirmed that they will be releasing two all-new class 4 and 5 medium-duty trucks into their lineup. These new trucks will be a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500 and a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 5500. This is very exciting news for Chevrolet, as the Silverado is one of their most popular vehicles.
“The first Chevy truck was built in 1918 for small business owners, and we have been expanding the market ever since because customers want specialized trucks that can tow and haul with confidence,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing and Advertising for Chevrolet Trucks.
Commercial volume for Chevrolet is up by 48 percent since 2013 and domestic segment share has been growing for the past 13 consecutive months. Chevy has been hard at work in the last three years as well. They have launched a new range of Low Cab Forwards trucks and introduced a totally redesigned 6.6L Duramax diesel for their heavy-duty pickups. So what’s next in the world of Chevy trucks?
The answer comes in the form of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500 and 5500. Both trucks will be available in Regular and Crew Cab models, with both 4×2 and 4×4 capability. There will also be a wide range of GVWRs and wheelbases. OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity provided by AT&T will also be offered.
Under the hood will be a Duramax diesel engine and an Allison transmission. Allison Transmission is a manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions. You can find their products powering motorhomes, buses, construction vehicles, and much more. So it’s safe to say that these new Silverados will have reliable and long lasting power.
