Among the most significant changes to the medium-duty/heavy-duty truck market for 2016, General Motors is going to re-enter the medium-duty market with a partnership with Navistar, while Ford brings production of its F-650/750 in-house.
GM and Navistar to Jointly Develop Chevy Medium Duty Trucks
GM exited medium-duty truck marketing in 2009 amid the recession and bankruptcy proceedings. In 2015, GM and Navistar reached a long-term agreement to develop and assemble medium-duty, conventional cab, Class 4/5 commercial vehicles, allowing GM to return medium-duty trucks to its Chevrolet commercial truck portfolio. New Chevy medium-duty trucks will be jointly developed using Navistar rolling chassis configurations and manufacturing capabilities and GM commercial components and engines. The vehicles are slated for production in 2018 and will be manufactured at Navistar’s facility in Springfield, OH.
