Chevrolet Kodiak and GMC TopKick C6500, C7500 and C8500 trucks offer more variety and longer wheelbases. They are designed to drive and handle more like a light-duty truck. Customers can easily mount bodies up to 30 feet in length on single-axle models. Led by an expanded line of new and upgraded inline diesels and automatic transmissions—including the new Duramax 7800—the trucks provide outstanding power, along with reduced operating and maintenance costs. Shorter turning diameters provide improved maneuverability. A new sloping hood helps the C-Series attain exceptional forward visibility of only 18.8 feet. A wide range of options is available. Estimated price: $35,000 to $70,000.
