Just in time for truck month, GM is now providing this option to fleet and retail consumers, and will be available at the beginning of April.
Chevy and GMC announced the details of the 2013 Silverado and Sierra 2500 HD at a press conference in Detroit on March 5th.
The new vehicles will include a Compressed Natural Gas capable Vortec 60L V8 Engine that will transition between CNG and standard gas fuel. The truck will offer a range of ?more than 650 miles to a tank?.
The Bi-Fuel trucks are built with a specific engine, the fuel system is installed by GM's Tier One supplier and when the truck is finished being assembled it is delivered directly to the customer. This will make sure that ordering the truck is as easy as ordering a standard model.
The trucks will still be covered under GM's three year, 36,000 mile warranty and a five year, 100,000 mile limited power train warranty.
"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. The addition of a full size bi-fuel pickup truck to GM's fleet portfolio is another milestone in putting the customer first in everything we do - by offering great products, innovative solutions and a great customer experience."
