Diesel Mid-Size Work Trucks

GM is set to offer diesel engines for their mid-size pickup trucks in hopes of appealing to a new range of buyers. Diesel engines were previously only available for GM heavy-duty pickups. The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will be available with diesel engines later this year at 1,100 pounds lighter than the F-150, according to the Wall Street Journal. The new pickup trucks will be more fuel efficient and slightly smaller than their full-size counterparts.

Go from fuel-efficient pickup truck to clean work truck with a Durashell service body by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies. The Durashell is lightweight, yet durable and made from fiberglass composite. The Durashell 90 and Durashell 165 models are perfect for light duty long bed pickups like the diesel Chevy and GMC trucks. They have 90 and 165 cubic feet of organized storage space respectively. Drivers experience great benefits from the Durashell service bodies including fuel efficiency, reduced technician downtime, and less maintenance.

GM Retired Van Alternatives

General Motors is retiring the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana 1500 full-size vans. After the 2014 model year GM will cease production of these vehicles because customers are looking to more fuel efficient options. GM will offer the heavier 2500 and 3500 Express and Savana models this summer.

Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies offers a better alternative to 1/2 ton vans like the Chevy Express and GMC Savana 1500 models. The Durashell Transferable Service Body universally fits most standard 1/2 ton pickup truck makes and models.  All Durashell models are transferable on and off a pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation. Transferability makes for an ideal work truck because technician downtime is reduced and resale value of both the pickup truck and service body increase.

Durashell service bodies are made of a lightweight fiberglass composite material making them more fuel efficient than heavier vans. Fleet management can look forward to savings on fuel costs, reducing emissions, and less frequent maintenance.

Call your Fleetwest representative toll free at 866-497-7200 to get a quote on the Durashell van alternative.
