General Motors has announced pricing for the bi-fuel option available on the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD pickups and 2015 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana short-wheelbase vans.
A bi-fuel package, which allows the vehicles to run on either compressed natural gas or gasoline, for the 2500HD and 3500HD pickups will start at $9,500. A dedicated CNG option on the cargo and passenger vans starts $10,825 for a three-tank system and $12,090 for a four-tank system.
“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,” Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet and Commercial, said in a statement. “Given the consistent cost savings and expanding infrastructure, both commercial and individual interest in CNG vehicles continues to grow.”
The bi-fuel option is available on all 2015 Silverado and Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD single-rear-wheel models. The CNG option on Express and Savana vans is not bi-fuel, but rather CNG only, and is available in three- or four-tank versions on cargo vans and only three-tank versions on passenger vans. GM offers a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty on CNG trucks and vans as well as the upcoming Impala bi-fuel sedan.
CNG versions of the Silverado and Sierra 2500HD pickups in double cab and crew cab variants and Express and Savana vans are on sale now. CNG-equipped Silverado and Sierra 2500HD regular cab and all 3500HD pickups are set to go on sale in July.
