The 2005 Chevrolet Kodiak/GMC TopKick C4500/C5500 offers fleet managers a solid medium-duty commercial truck with the versatility of a pickup truck. The pickup box for the C4500/C5500 model is manufactured and installed through a partnership between General Motors (GM) and Monroe Truck Equipment, Inc. (MTE)
The truck’s design is ideal for agriculture, construction, and government fleet applications. It is constructed to handle heavy payloads, and the cab can carry six passengers. With a towing capacity of 24,000-26,000 lbs., the truck’s weight and tow ratings go beyond standard pickup trucks, but it can also match the maneuverability and practicality of Class 1-3 pickup models.
