“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 Silverado HD and Sierra 2500 HD Vortec are powered by 6.0L V8 engine that runs on gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG) and switches between the two fuels without affecting performance.

The bi-fuel option is priced at $11,000 above the suggested retail price of the base vehicle.
