The rigs feature a gross vehicle weight rating ranging from 16,000 pounds for the C4500 to 19,500 for the C5500.
When Truck News went to press, prices for the larger versions of the trucks had yet to be released, but GM was anticipating a June release for the C6500, C7500 and C8500.
“The Kodiak and TopKick have been redesigned and engineered from the ground up for 2003. These new trucks feature innovations that commercial customers value most, like superior maneuverability and visibility, an expanded powertrain lineup, upgraded serviceability, advanced chassis and braking systems, improved ride and handling and increased comfort and safety,” says Donna Martin, brand manager for medium duty trucks. “With our expanded product portfolio, our commercial customers now have more choice than ever before – from regular and commercial cutaway chassis cabs to vocational packages like school bus, fire and rescue, ambulance, shuttle bus, wrecker and snowplow.”
