First shown to the public at the 2018 Work Truck Show, the all-new Class 4, 5 and 6 2019 Chevrolet Silverados are rolling off the production line in Springfield, Ohio, with a mission to reinvigorate GM's commercial truck lineup. These first-ever medium-duty Silverados mark GM's return to the medium-duty market after killing the Chevrolet Kodiak and GMC TopKick in 2009.
New Silverado 4500/5500/6500 models are equipped with the same turbo-diesel 6.6-liter Duramax engine offered in the 2500/3500 models, but they also offer features such as a tilt-forward engine cover for easier maintenance access, a much-easier-to-access diesel exhaust fluid tank, more wheelbase choices and an easy-to-reach location for the two battery boxes (just outside the driver's door).
