Chevrolet is testing a new straight frame Silverado
quote:

This week at the Texas State Fair, Chevrolet said it is launching new Class 4 and 5 trucks next year that will be branded Silverado. The announcement came as part of Chevy's Centennial Truck event celebrating a century of Chevrolet pickups.

Chevy pointed to its truck activity over the last three years, including the introduction of a redesigned 6.6L Duramax diesel for heavy-duty pickups. The forthcoming Silverado 4500 and 5500 models will all be powered by a Duramax diesel engine and have an Allison automatic transmission

Both the Silverado 4500 and 5500 will be available in Regular and Crew Cab models, with 4x2 and 4x4 capability and a range of gross vehicle weight ratings and wheelbases.

Usually class 4/5 trucks with pickup truck cabs like the F550 are on reinforced pickup truck frames, so a straight frame pickup with a clam shell hood is a unique development in that segment.

Chevrolet's existing medium duty trucks are cab over designs. This would be their first conventional cab in that market since the massive straight-framed Kodiak was discontinued a few years ago.
