GM’s fleet and retail consumers now have another alternative fuel option for their vehicles. Starting next month, they can place orders for the brand-new 2013 Chevrolet and GMC bi-fuel pickups.
The Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 HD extended cab trucks have an option that seamlessly transitions between compressed natural gas and gasoline fuel systems, providing a combined range of more than 650 miles. CNG is a clean-burning, domestically produced fuel.
“The bi-fuel truck provides businesses with added re-fueling flexibility and eases consumer range concerns that typically come with CNG, all while reducing emissions and controlling costs,” said Joyce Mattman, director, GM Commercial Product and Specialty Vehicles. “With a turnkey ordering process, combined with the best warranty in the industry for a commercial product, our bi-fuel truck is an attractive option, especially for commercial customers.”
The bi-fuel commercial trucks will be covered by GM’s three-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and five-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and vehicle emissions warranty, meeting all Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board emission certification requirements. It is the most extensive warranty offered by any manufacturer on commercial products.
