Chevrolet’s new Low Cab Forward trucks are now shipping to Chevrolet dealers across the country, marking Chevrolet’s return to the medium-duty market. The new Low Cab Forward series strengthens Chevrolet’s truck portfolio, which includes midsize, light-duty and heavy-duty pickups.
“We’re in the business of helping our commercial customers succeed, and a big part of that is providing the vehicle choices they need to efficiently operate their businesses,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of General Motors Fleet. “Our new Low Cab Forward trucks are the answer for our customers who require expansive payload, cargo-hauling capabilities and exceptional maneuverability.
The Chevrolet Low Cab Forward has customer-focused functionality, including a maneuverable cabover design for optimal visibility and a tight turning radius for efficient hauling in busy, urban environments, according to the automaker.
The new trucks are offered in regular cab and crew cab body styles, with either a 6.0L V-8 gasoline engine, a 3.0L turbo-diesel engine, or a 5.2L turbo-diesel engine. All engines are mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. Class 3 through 5 models are available with maximum GVWR ranges of up to 19,500 pounds.
Pricing begins at an MSRP of $40,900 for trucks with gasoline engines. Pricing for trucks with diesel engines begins at an MSRP of $48,375. Prices include a $1,125 destination charge but exclude tax, title, license, and dealer fees.
