The vehicles include a compressed natural gas (CNG) capable Vortec 6.0L V8 engine that seamlessly transitions between CNG and gasoline fuel systems.
The truck always starts using gasoline and switches over to CNG once the proper operating temperature is reached.
However, the driver can switch between fuels at any time — even when driving at highway speeds — simply by pressing a button mounted on the dashboard. Combined, the trucks offer a range of more than 650 miles.
The Silverado and Sierra will be available in standard and long box, with either two- or four-wheel drive.
“The bi-fuel Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra provide customers with choices in advanced propulsion technology, and because CNG is a clean-burning, domestically produced fuel, it has wide appeal,” said Ed Peper, general manager, GM Fleet and Commercial Operations.
The trucks are built in Fort Wayne, IN, then sent to the Tier One supplier for installation of the CNG bi-fuel delivery and storage system. The entire gaseous fuel system meets GM’s strict quality, durability, safety testing and is covered under the extensive warranty.
