General Motors announced pricing for the 2007i lineup of C-Series and T-Series medium-duty trucks (base models and select options), effective the first quarter of 2007. The medium-duty lineup includes a broad range of the popular and dependable C-Series and T-Series trucks, available with both gas and diesel engines.
2007 C4500 and C5500 models equipped with the 6.6L Duramax turbo-diesel engine receive the option of a more powerful variant with more horsepower and torque than '06 models; C6500, C7500, C8500 and T-Series models equipped with the Isuzu 6H engine also feature more standard horsepower and torque.
Base model prices range from $28,450 on the C4500 to $83,437 on the T8500. The prices for GM medium-duty diesel models are competitive with other manufacturers, as all 2007 diesel-equipped vehicles require new or revised equipment to comply with a new federal emissions standard.
"The changes with diesel-equipped vehicles are the direct result of GM's compliance with the new federal emissions standard," said Mark Karney, General Motors director of marketing for commercial trucks and vans. "GM's pricing is competitive, as all manufacturers have taken similar actions to comply with the new emissions standard."
Along with diesels, GM is the only medium-duty manufacturer to offer a gasoline engine option for all its Class 6 through 8 conventional 6500-8500 trucks. This can be an attractive alternative to diesel engines for customers with local, low-mileage operating requirements.
