Chevrolet is now back in the medium duty commercial market and they've tasked Spartan Motors with assembly of the new trucks.

The seven new Chevrolet medium duty trucks are the fruit of a long time relationship between General Motors and Isuzu. The Chevys are based on Isuzu's N-Series.

Production of the Chevrolet medium-duty line begins in earnest today as we witness the first of what we expect to be many of these durable and maneuverable vehicles roll off our assembly line," said Daryl Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Spartan Motors.

"Our strategic business relationship with Isuzu began in 2011, and our company has realized significant growth and success in this segment due in part to the great trust they've shown in our team's execution of their vision for this broad product line. In fact, we celebrated the 30,000th Isuzu N-Series production milestone this year, and we expect GM will realize similar success with their vehicle line."

Pricing begins at $40,900 for gassers, and $48,375 for an oil burner.

"Drivers will love this truck because it's comfortable, versatile and easy to drive, but the thing that will set us apart for owners-operators and fleet managers is ease of service through a nationwide network of Chevrolet commercial dealers," said John Schwegman, director of commercial product, General Motors Fleet.
