Chevy is reasserting itself in the medium duty truck world in a big way

Chevy is returning to the medium-duty truck market, with the pending release of the Silverado 4500 and 5500.

The auto-manufacturer, which hasn't made a truck in that portion of the market since it and GMC sold the Kodiak and the TopKick, teased their return to the hard-working Class 4 and Class 5 trucks sectors with a darkened image of the front end of the truck.

Details about the brand's upcoming workhorse are still extremely sparse, with Chevy making the promise it'll reveal more at Indianapolis's Work Truck Show this coming March.

But what we do know is that the truck will be powered by a Duramax diesel motor with an Allison transmission. The image, once it's touched up a bit, reveals that the truck will have a split headlight design with a semi-truck style hood. Chevy has said that the new 4500 and 5500 will be available in 4-wheel-drive and two-wheel-drive, and buyers will also have the option to get a regular or double-cab configuration.
