As your commercial truck dealer near Edison, NJ, we make it our business to help keep your business up and running. Here at Richard Lucas Chevrolet, we know that no two companies are exactly alike. Every business owner has their own set of needs, preferences, and budgetary restrictions. That’s why we’re proud to offer a wide range of options. For instance, consider the Silverado HD Chassis Cab. It’s available in several different levels so that you can get one that’s just right for you.

Most people know that as the number at the end of the Silverado’s name goes up, the truck gets more powerful. The Silverado 1500 is a light-duty truck, and the heavy-duty trucks range from 2500 all the way up to 6500. While a pickup truck may work well for most individual drivers and even some businesses, other companies need the flexibility that a chassis cab offers. The Silverado Chassis Cab can be customized with a variety of upfits so that you can get the design you need for your business. Let’s take a look at what these versatile and powerful trucks have to offer.

Silverado 3500 HD

With the 3500 HD, you have a choice between a 6.6L V8 gasoline engine that produces 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque and pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission and a Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 that produces 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque and pairs with a ten-speed Allison automatic transmission. You also get a choice between a regular cab and a crew cab and plenty of different upfit configurations, including a utility bed, a dump truck, and a flat frame. Three different fuel tank options are available as well, with a total fuel capacity of 63.5 gallons, so you can upgrade your capacity if you want to go farther between fill-ups.

When properly equipped, this truck can handle up to 7,571 lbs of payload and has a maximum GVWR of 14,000 lbs. On top of that raw strength, there’s also plenty of useful tech available to turn the cab into a mobile office. With the available onboard Wi-Fi hotspot and the available 120V power outlet, employees can get work done on their laptops within the spacious cab. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto let drivers use navigation apps through the Silverado’s interface and stay connected while on the go, so you can always stay in contact with your workforce while they’re out and about.

Silverado 4500-6500 HD

When you get up to the 4500 HD Chassis Cab and above, you’ll get the 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 as a standard powertrain and the option to add on an Allison PTS transmission for extra passenger comfort if you’re using your Silverado as a shuttle bus. You can also opt for a locking rear axle for more stability and better performance on off-road surfaces like construction sites. When properly equipped, the 4500 HD has a GVWR rating of 14,001-16,500 lbs, the 5500 HD has a GVWR rating of 17,500-19,500 lbs, and the 6500 HD has a GVWR rating of 21,500-23,500 lbs. All three trucks give you the option to choose either a regular cab or a crew back and have different wheelbase options as well.

All kinds of little touches have been added to the 2023 Silverado HD Chassis Cab’s design in order to make it easy for you to deal with a wide variety of situations. For instance, the battery box is placed in a location that’s easy to reach so that if you ever need a jump start, it won’t be an issue. The Diesel Exhaust Fluid fill is located in an entirely different location from the fuel tank fill, making it harder to mix up fuel and DEF. A forward-tilting engine cover makes accessing the engine for service easier.

One of the most important features of a chassis cab is its ability to be compatible with a wide range of upfits. In this regard, Chevrolet has also gone above and beyond. The well-constructed single-piece frame rail is tough, durable, and painted in order to prevent corrosion. A top-of-rail design makes it easy to attach a variety of upfits, and Power Takeoff dual-side access lets you attach auxiliary power from either side of the transmission, making a wider range of designs compatible.

While the back of the truck may be the business end, it’s important to never forget about the comfort and safety of the person behind the wheel. The cab is designed with the driver in mind, providing great visibility so that they can stay fully aware of their surroundings. Triple-sealed doors keep the cab quiet so that your workers can stay focused and avoid noisy distractions, especially on busy construction sites. A comprehensive array of airbags are ready to protect the driver and any passengers in the event of a collision. Like the Silverado 3500 HD, the more powerful chassis cab options can also be had with useful tech like a 4G LTE onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Body Options

Once you’ve decided which cab works best for your needs, we can get you set up with a body. We generally have several options on hand, including box trucks, dump trucks, flatbeds, hauler bodies, service trucks, and stake beds. You can also look for useful add-ons like shelving, snowplows, toolboxes, ladder racks, hoists, and spreaders. We offer both new and used vehicles, so you can always find something that suits your needs and fits into your budget. You can browse our current stock here on our website.
