2015 CHEVROLET SILVERADO CNG: Chevrolet’s expanded availability of bi-fuel versions of the new 2015 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD trucks are on display during the 107th Edition Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 14-22, 2015. These new models give customers and fleet managers more choices for cleaner-burning compressed natural gas-powered models – and savings at the pump. With CNG currently priced about 62 percent less per gallon than gasoline, a work truck driven 26,000 miles a year can save more than $2,000 annually based on 75-percent CNG usage and comparable efficiency to gasoline. Chevy explains that the CNG option is available on all Silverado 2500HD configurations and Silverado 3500HD models with single rear wheels. The 2500HD double cab and crew cab models are on sale now, with 2500HD regular cab and all 3500HD models going on sale in July. Complimenting the cabs are all-new, stronger 6’6”and 8’ cargo boxes with standard CornerStep bumpers, plus, EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgates. The unique version of the 6.0L engine – identified by an LC8 engine code – features special hardened valves and valve seats that enable it to run on CNG or gasoline. It is rated at 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque on gas, and 301 horsepower and 333 lb-ft of torque on CNG. With the additional driving range enabled by a separate CNG tank, Silverado HD bi-fuel models have a total range of up to 650 miles, meaning less time needed for fill-ups. When equipped with a 4.10 axle ratio, the maximum conventional trailering rating is 13,000 pounds on gas or CNG.
