When Chevrolet announced the new 2019 Silverado Medium Duty last week, it didn’t provide information about where the new vehicles will be manufactured. But GM Authority has confirmed with Chevrolet officials that the beastly new trucks will be made at Navistar’s Springfield Assembly Plant in Ohio.
Notably, the truck, which is comprised of the 2019 Silverado 4500HD, Silverado 5500HD and Silverado 6500HD in either regular (single) Cab or Crew Cab configurations, was destined for production by Navistar since GM and Navistar embarked on the Medium Duty truck program in October 2015, resulting in the jointly-developed Silverado Medium Duty family. Navistar will also sell a version of the trucks under the International Trucks brand.
Navistar’s Springfield Assembly Plant is located in Springfield, Ohio – about 50 miles west of Columbus. It produces International brand ProStar+, WorkStar, DuraStar, TerraStar and TranStar trucks. As of the first half of 2017, the plant also produces cutaway versions of GM’s commercial vans – the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana. The move allows GM to expand availability and associated sales volumes of the vehicles.
