GM Begins Production of 2013 Silverado and Sierra Bi-Fuel Pickups

GM has announced that the production of the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra 2500 HD bi-fuel pickup trucks is underway in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Silverado HD and Sierra 2500 HD Vortec 6.0L V8 engine runs on gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG) and seamlessly switches between the two fuels. The CNG and gasoline tanks have a combined range of 650 miles, the longest standard bi-fuel range of any original equipment automaker.

"Customers are choosing our bi-fuel trucks because they provide the same high level of GM truck performance and versatility but can also help businesses control their fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprint," said Ed Peper, General Motors U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales.

The bi-fuel option is priced at $11,000 above the suggested retail price of the base vehicle. The pickups are available for order by fleet and retail customers through Chevrolet and GMC dealers.
