Vehicles Available Directly Through GM Dealers, Full Powertrain Warranty
Although diesel power is the overwhelming choice of most HD truck buyers, for fleets it is often alternative fuels such as compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG or Propane) make more sense. For those buyers looking for CNG or LPG-powered vehicles, General Motors has announced a partnership with upfitter Power Solutions International (PSI) to expand availability of gaseous-fuel vehicles at Chevrolet and GMC dealers.
The vehicles available with the CNG and LPG options include the Express and Savana Cargo 2500, 3500, and 4500 models; Express and Savana Passenger 2500 and 3500 models; Silverado and Sierra HD models; and Chevrolet LCF 3500 and 4500 models. All vehicles are equipped with a specially outfitted 6.0L Vortec V-8 with hardened valves and valve seats and a gaseous fuel delivery system installed by PSI. Vehicles will be available directly through Chevrolet and GMC dealers nationwide. All vehicles will be covered by the full 5-year/60,000-mile GM powertrain warranty.
The gaseous-fuel option comes in addition to GM’s offerings of diesel and E85 models, including the availability of the 2.8L I-4 Duramax diesel in the 2017 Express and Savana fullsize vans and an optional 1.6L diesel in the 2017 Cruze compact sedan and hatch and 2018 Equinox crossover.
