New Work Trucks For Chevrolet Drivers

 

Recently, Chevrolet announced three new 2019 model year Silverado work trucks for customers—the 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500 HD. In the design of these three new vehicles, Chevrolet strove to meet the challenges of the work day and standard medium-duty trucks. Check out how the new trucks are developed to streamline daily business.

 

Challenge The Silverado Solution
§  Cost and complexity of upfits: Frames that rust; rivets, brackets and fluid lines that interfere with body mounting. §  A factory-painted frame with one-piece frame rails, smooth, unobstructed top sections, and through-the-frame fuel fill lines.
§  Frame compromises: Frame rails that are too short behind the rear axle to accommodate longer cargo boxes without extensions and reinforcements.  §  Seven Cab-to-Axle (CA) options ranging from 60 to 162-inches, along with five unique axle-to-back-of-frame (AF) lengths sized in 8-inch increments.
§  Service obstacles: Hood designs that force technicians to use ladders or remove vehicle components to access under-hood components for maintenance and repair. §  A lightweight, front-hinged “clamshell” hood that, combined with a 50-degree wheel cut, allows easy “walk up” access to under-hood components.
§  Difficult to drive: Poor downward perspective for the driver, along with poor low-speed maneuverability due to narrow wheel cuts, and wide turning radiuses. §  A precisely crafted and contoured hood optimizes the driver’s perspective of the road. Maneuverability is excellent thanks to up to 50-degree wheel cuts.
§  Noise, Vibration and Harshness: The need to retrofit aftermarket air suspensions to improve ride; loud, uncomfortable cabins. §  An available, factory-installed rear air suspension, not on Ford and Ram; triple-sealed, inset doors to help reduce wind and road noise; huck bolts used throughout the frame for superior clamping force.
§  DEF tank placement: Poorly-placed and marked diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tanks that can lead to refueling errors. §  The DEF tank is conveniently located on the passenger side of the truck – the opposite side of the fuel fill.
