November 20, 2015 – Customers who rely on Chevrolet and GMC trucks to get their work done can now modify all sizes of trucks with a “box delete” option, General Motors (GM) says.
GM is making the option available to fleet and retail customers on its 1500 two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive regular cab Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The new light-duty configuration eliminates the box, rear bumper and spare tire assembly, and includes high-rate rear springs and a front stabilizer bar from the Max Trailering Package. The box delete option will provide a credit of $575 from suggested retail pricing. The spare tire assembly can be added back on for $335, GM notes.
The new light duty models will join the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-size extended cab trucks with a box delete option, as well as the Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD box deletes and chassis cabs.
The Silverado 1500 2WD regular cab box delete starts at $29,155. A box delete 2500HD 2WD Regular Cab box delete starts at $33,475.
All above prices are in U.S. dollars.
