General Motors Fleet’s Extensive Truck Lineup Gives Businesses the Power of Choice
Just as businesses are constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of their customers, manufacturers are doing the same with their truck portfolios in an effort to give fleets additional capabilities. Since 2014, General Motors has re-entered two truck segments – midsize and medium duty – to ensure business owners have choices and can deploy the right truck for the job.
“Putting our customers at the center of everything we do means giving them an expansive portfolio of commercial truck solutions, as well as the business information they need to get the most out of their vehicles,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet.
The Chevrolet Low Cab Forward, which recently began arriving at more than 230 Chevrolet dealerships nationwide, is Chevrolet’s latest addition to its growing truck portfolio and can be customized with numerous upfit combinations. Three engines are offered: one gas and two diesel; six available wheelbase options and a wide range of body options from 10- to 24-feet.
Often equally as important as selecting the right vehicle is selecting the correct body option to upfit the truck. Among the available options is a utility/service body, which is typically added to midsize and full-size trucks, such as the Chevrolet Colorado or Chevrolet Silverado, for added storage. This is particularly appealing to construction and building tradespeople and government agencies who desire maximum storage space.
A box upfit, a popular option on the Chevrolet Express cutaway and Chevrolet Silverado chassis cab, can be a great solution for furniture, appliance, or floral delivery along with other services where protection from the elements is critical.
And when you’re talking about moving lumber or scrap metal, the platform body application turns your truck into one of the most versatile work trucks on the road.
