One of the best things about Chevy is the impressive array of commercial vehicles they offer every year and the way in which these trucks and vans can solve many of the problems businesses face. At McCluskey Chevrolet, we recognize that businesses often look for things in commercial vehicles that consumer drivers might not even think about. That is why we are committed to working with our commercial clients to ensure they find the truck, van, or cab that will perfectly fit their needs and keep on working as hard as they do.
While you can probably go online and look up commercial vehicles for trade and find some trucks or vans going for low prices, you are really gambling with such a purchase. If you buy a used van from another owner, who is going to be there when it breaks down or the engine quits after a couple months? A commercial vehicle is just like any other piece of machinery or technology that you buy for your business, so it is important to ensure it will keep on running and is backed up by a reputable dealer. Don't gamble with your company's future by choosing a cheap, poorly maintained used vehicle.
Commercial trucks are typically the workhorses of a business, often transporting heavy loads and ensuring business gets done. These vehicles need to be strong, reliable, and backed by meaningful warranties that ensure if anything does happen to them, that they will be up and running again soon. Choosing the right commercial truck typically comes down to the needs of a company and the types of loads that will be carried. At McCluskey Chevrolet, we understand the needs of businesses and work with all of our commercial clients to ensure they keep working all year long.
The new 2019 Chevy Low Cab Forward, or LCF, is a great choice for a wide range of businesses because it can meet a lot of different needs. Starting at about $41,000 MSRP, the LCF is the type of commercial vehicle that might be overlooked by first-time buyers but should be considered by a lot of different companies. It is ideal for hauling heavy loads or bulky cargo and is available in either a regular cab or crew cab.
Although several different trim options are available, for businesses in need of serious hauling power, the 6500XD is Chevy's ultimate offering for LCF commercial vehicles. It has a 5.2L turbo-diesel 4-cylinder engine that delivers 520 lb.-ft. of torque, providing a GVWR2 of nearly 26,000 lbs. No matter what you are looking to haul, this will probably get the job done.
If something like the Low Cab Forward is more than you are looking for in terms of commercial vehicles, then consider the Silverado Chassis cab. This all-new model looks gorgeous and starts off at an MSRP of just over $46,000. You can get a lot of the great interior features of the Chevy Silverado line with this model, and since it is just the cab you can pair it with a wide range of options to make sure you get any job you need done.
There are three different options for this cab, including 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD, depending on just how much power and hauling performance you need.

That is paired with an Allison automatic transmission that makes it easy to drive while still conquering the majority of commercial needs.
Sometimes a cab is not what you need, and if you are interested in a commercial truck that also plays well after hours, then it is hard to beat the all-new Chevy Silverado 1500. This is a great choice as part of a larger fleet, when you want to add a few pickups to your lineup that can handle a lot of different commercial tasks. Even just a few of these by themselves can make a sufficient smaller fleet for a lot of businesses.
The 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 has a starting MSRP of just over $34,000, which makes it a more affordable option for businesses that don't need an isolated cab. It has active fuel management that not only keeps gas costs down but also helps with meeting efficiency demands for commercial fleets. And yet you get a max towing capacity of up to 9,400 lbs. with this beast, so it can haul serious loads of building materials, inventory, or just about anything else you want to pile into it.
For many businesses, a good commercial van is just as important as any other commercial vehicles running on the road. While trucks are typically relied on to carry heavy loads of materials or other items, a van can be used for a wide range of tasks and can meet many needs. This is why choosing just the right van for a business is so important and something we take very seriously when working with our commercial customers. Whether they are for passengers or inventory, these commercial vehicles can mean the difference between delivering an important order and missing out on a serious opportunity.
This is a perfect choice for any business looking to build or grow a fleet of commercial transport vans. The cutaway gives you the ideal frame upon which to place whatever kind of box you need for your business. If you are looking for something that gives you flexibility and power, then this is a great choice that does not force you into one direction or the other.
This model has a starting MSRP of just over $32,000 and gives you tremendous power and performance for that price.
