GM drops price of CNG bi-fuel option on 2015 Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra HD
| April 18, 2014 |
GM has announced that bi-fuel options allowing either compressed natural gas or gasoline to power the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD pickups, will start at $9,500.
That’s a drop of $1,500 from the $11,000 the option previously cost.
A dedicated CNG option on the 2015 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana cargo and passenger short-wheelbase vans starts $10,825 for the three-tank system and $12,090 for the four-tank system.
“Based on current average fuel prices, CNG is more than a dollar cheaper than an equivalent gallon of gasoline, giving drivers and businesses an incentive to use CNG to power their vehicles,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet and Commercial.
“Given the consistent cost savings and expanding infrastructure, both commercial and individual interest in CNG vehicles continues to grow,” says Peper.
The bi-fuel CNG option will be available on all 2015 Silverado and Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD single-rear-wheel models.
The Express and Savana vans have fully dedicated CNG fuel systems – available in three- or four-tank models on cargo vans and exclusively with the three-tank design on passenger vans.
GM warrants and validates the fuel systems on all of its CNG trucks, vans and the upcoming bi-fuel Chevrolet Impala sedan through its five-year/100,000-mile—whichever comes first—powertrain limited warranty.
All major components associated with the CNG system also carry GM service part numbers for availability throughout the largest dealer network in the United States.
