Medium Duty Trucks
Medium duty trucks are a diverse set of rugged and versatile commercial vehicles that range in weight from 14,001 pounds to 26,000 pounds. Unlike light duty trucks, which are generally designed based on existing consumer market pickup trucks, vans and other vehicles, medium duty trucks are exclusively designed to meet the needs of commercial enterprises, such as shipping, hauling and passenger transport. Specialty medium duty vehicles are also available, including sanitation transport, emergency vehicles and medium duty dump trucks. In many industries, medium duty trucks are the vehicle of choice due to their combination of superior maneuverability, ease of operation and affordable pricing.
Selecting a GMC Medium Duty Truck
GMC's medium duty truck lineup includes the C-Series and the T-Series. C-Series trucks feature a conventional cab, with body lengths ranging from 8 to 30 feet. These trucks can be used both on- and off-road, and 4x4 options are available. A number of cab configurations can be ordered to suit any specialty use, including crew cab, cutaway and motor home cabs. These options make GMC's C-Series one of the most versatile medium duty truck lineups on the market.
The T-Series is GMC's tilt cab line. Tilt cabs feature van-like bodies that are more compact than conventional cab trucks, making them an ideal choice for hauling cargo in crowded urban spaces. GMC's tilt cab trucks also feature enhanced visibility and tight cornering, giving them a high degree of maneuverability.
