First introduced in 2018 at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, the Chevy Silverado Medium Duty truck line expanded the Chevrolet Silverado lineup to include new 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD models, with multiple configurations, wheelbases, and GVWRs to meet numerous vehicle applications, such as cargo hauling, emergency services, and more. Now, GM Authority has uncovered the best-selling Chevy Silverado Medium Duty configuration for the 2020 model year.
According to documents seen by GM Authority, the Chevy Silverado Medium Duty 5500HD 4×4 Regular Cab WT is the best-selling configuration for the current 2020 model year.
Demand is growing month over month for these vehicles.
It should be noted that what sets the 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD models apart are their respective GVWRs, with the 4500HD rated at 14,001 pounds to 16,500 pounds, the 5500HD rated at 17,500 pounds to 19,500 pounds, and the 6500HD rated at 21,500 pounds to 23,500 pounds.
Looking ahead, the 2021-model-year Chevy Silverado Medium Duty is expected to go into production November 30th. The nameplate is set for a few minor changes and updates highlighted by the addition of StabiliTrak as standard on all models, the addition of Neutral-at-Stop as standard across the line, and, as GM Authority exclusively reported, the addition of the FuelSense 2.0 transmission shift control calibration, which will be optional across the line.
Further updates include the addition of an upfitter switch kit as standard, which was previously only offered with the Emergency Service Package, as well as the addition of a standard exhaust brake, which was also previously only available on models equipped with the Emergency Service Package.
Further information on all the changes and updates slated for the 2021 Chevy Silverado Medium Duty truck line can be found at our intel page.
As a reminder, the Chevy Silverado Medium Duty truck line is jointly developed by GM and Navistar, and arrived in 2018 as a replacement for the discontinued Chevrolet Kodiak and GMC TopKick medium-duty trucks. Production takes place at Navistar Internationals pant in Springfield, Ohio.
