Chevrolet teases the heavyweights 4500HD and 5500HD image

The US automaker should have them ready for prime time in front of the worldwide audience of the upcoming 2018 Work Truck Show, taking place this spring in March.

The Chevrolet Silverado HD is certainly a work truck on its own – with up to 910 pound-feet (1,234 Newton-meters) of torque from its powertrains – but the commercial sector is of course looking for even more versatility. This is why the bowtie brand is sparing no expenses with the upcoming new generation Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD pickups that are slated for the official worldwide introduction in front of the audience of the 2018 Work Truck Show, taking place from March 6 through 9 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Production is already slate for late this year, so come next year many business clients will proudly go about in the new Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD pickup models. Chevrolet so far has only revealed a mysterious teaser photo, along with very few details. So, we only know the models will become available in regular or crew cab (four-door) configuration and with two- or four-wheel drive – all featuring the established Duramax diesel engines and Allison transmissions. Naturally, there are loads of gross weight and wheelbase lengths, along with the availability of chassis cabs.
