- The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD bi-fuel options will start at $9,500, GM announced on Tuesday.
- The options will allow the use of either compressed natural gas or gasoline to power the trucks.
- A dedicated CNG option on the 2015 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana cargo and passenger short-wheelbase vans starts at $10,825 for the three-tank system and $12,090 for the four-tank system.
The options will allow the use of either compressed natural gas or gasoline to power the trucks.
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.
CNG versions of the Silverado and Sierra 2500HD double cab and crew cab and the full-size Express and Savana vans are on sale now. The Silverado and Sierra 2500HD regular cab and all 3500HD pickup trucks go on sale in July.
"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 of GM's fleet and commercial operation. "Given the consistent cost savings and expanding infrastructure, both commercial and individual interest in CNG vehicles continues to grow."
