GM Fleet and Commercial Operations plans on complimenting its current offering of compressed-natural-gas-powered bi-fuel GMC Savanna and Chevrolet Express utility vans by launching a pickup truck with the same propulsion system sometime next year.
The truck will be able to run on either compressed natural gas or everyday gasoline, will be covered by GM’s three-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and five-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and vehicle emissions warranty, and will comply with all emission regulations here in the United States.
Indiana-based IMPCO Automotive will be in charge of modifying stock pickup trucks in order for them to run on natural gas, just as they currently do with the Express and Savanna vans. The mysterious part about all of this is that GM failed to mention in the presser just which trucks will get the treatment. So stay tuned for more.
