Bi-fuel Silverado 2500HD can switch between gasoline and natural gas
Continuing a commitment to cleaner, more efficient vehicles, Chevrolet is offering both fleet and retail consumers an all-new bi-fuel Silverado 2500HD that seamlessly switches between gasoline and compressed natural gas (CNG).
Chevy is currently taking orders for the trucks that will be on the road early 2013.
Combining the domestically produced†, cleaner-burning CNG with gasoline gives the Silverado 2500HD a range of more than 650 miles. And since this is a Silverado, you know its got the power and performance to get the job done.
The entire gaseous fuel system meets Chevrolet’s strict quality, durability, safety testing and is covered under the extensive warranty. The bi-fuel Silverado 2500HD Extended Cab will be available in standard and long box, with either two- or four-wheel drive.
The benefits of natural gas and where to find it
According to CNGnow, natural gas powers more than 12 million vehicles on the road, but thus far only 112,000 of them are in the United States. The group states that CNG costs about 50% less than gasoline or diesel and (depending on the vehicle make) emits up to 90% fewer emissions than gasoline. Given the abundant supply in America and an expanding number of fueling stations across the country, interest in domestically produced CNG is likely to rise.
