What does it cost to make Hummer owners feel intimidated as you gaze down upon them in a Kodiak 4x4 pickup? The base MSRP of the C5500 Crew Cab 4x4 Chassis Cab, with the Duramax diesel and Allison transmission, is $58,660. The Monroe pickup bed upfit adds another $9000.

The softer-sprung C4500 model is even less expensive. For example, a C4500 Crew Cab 4x2 Chassis Cab with the Duramax diesel/Allison combo has an MSRP of just $46,208--plus the pickup-bed upfit charge.

GM says the C4500 Kodiak 4x4 and 4x2 pickups are now available through all GMC/Chevy dealers, while the C5500 Chevy Kodiak and C5500 GMC TopKick are available only through GM Medium Duty dealers.
