The Shyft Group is showcasing Utilimaster and Royal Truck Body products during the General Motors Virtual Solutions Summit. The online “expo” is available for GM Fleet customers beginning August 25 and running through December 31, 2020.
Royal Truck Body’s new Severe Duty body, built to fit GM’s medium-duty truck class, is available on Chevrolet Silverado 4500, 5500, and 6500 chassis models, and includes a number of standard features. With its Fortress five-point lock system, 10-gauge steel, Line-X’d box tops, 3/8-inch tread plate steel floors, and more, this work truck is built to last and is ideal for contractors and business owners who put their work truck fleets to the test.
“Since day one, Royal Truck Body has established itself as the go-to service body for contractors and other professionals concerned about performance and perception. With its durable construction, high luster appearance, expert fit and finish, and ample storage space, these trucks don’t demand trade-offs between hard work and good looks,” said Steve Guillaume, president of Shyft Specialty Vehicles. “We look forward to bringing Royal Truck Body’s Severe Duty service body to the market and appreciate General Motors’ providing the platform to accomplish just that.”
Alongside the Severe Duty truck body launch, The Shyft Group’s Utilimaster brand will be showcasing its purpose-built cutaway Utilivan during the summit. Utilimaster’s Utilivan can be built on either a GM or Ford cutaway chassis, and is available in 10-18-foot lengths. Today, the Utilivan is in use by multiple parcel delivery customers, and offers highly customizable, modular interior shelving, among other innovative features.
Through its support of the growing parcel delivery segement, Utilimaster is working to strengthen its position in the last-mile delivery market across the GVWR spectrum.
