Chevy Reveals Pricing for Low Cab Forward Medium-Duty Truck
Chevrolet announced pricing details for two very different vehicles today: the track-ready 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, as well as the brand’s newest entry into the commercial vehicle segment, low cab forward medium-duty trucks. As you can imagine, we’re a bit more excited by the former vehicle than the latter, yet we’re duty-bound to report on both of them.
So, for the record, pricing for Chevy’s new low cab forward medium-duty trucks with gasoline engines will start at $40,900. Diesel models will start at $48,375. Prices will include the $1,125 destination fee, but do not take into account tax, title, license, and dealer fees.
The new trucks are plenty customizable. In addition to being offered with either a 6.0-liter V8 gas engine, 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine, or a 5.2-liter turbo-diesel engine (all with six-speed automatics), the new trucks are available in both regular-cab and crew-cab body styles.
“We know how important the total vehicle cost of ownership is to fleet customers to be successful in their work, and we believe these prices reflect some of the most competitive in the market when it comes to medium-duty trucks,” said Ed Peper, US vice president of General Motors Fleet. “The range of prices gives fleet owners an option that best fits their needs.”
All seven of the new models—the Chevrolet 3500, 3500HD, 4500, 4500HD, 4500XD, 5500HD, and 5500XD—will arrive at select Chevy dealers in the third quarter of this year.
According to GM, additional features will include easy driver entry and exit, wheelbases that range from 109 to 212 inches, GVWRs ranging from 12,000 lbs to 19,500 lbs, and an easy-access engine compartment with 45-degree-tilting cab.
Specific pricing for individual models will be revealed closer to the start of production.
