The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently unveiled the 2013 model year GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickups.
With the Geneva Motor Show going on as we speak and with the New York Auto Show scheduled to open its gates in April, General Motors has decided that none of those automotive events are that important for its pickups so the 2013 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado have been unveiled over-seas. According to the automaker, the bi-fuel 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 HD and the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado extended cab models are designed to run on any terrain powered by both gasoline fuel and compressed natural gas.
“The bi-fuel Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra provide customers with choices in advanced propulsion technology, and because CNG is a clean-burning, domestically produced fuel, it has a wide appeal. The addition of a full-size bi-fuel pickup truck to GM’s fleet portfolio is another milestone in putting the customer first in everything we do – by offering great products, innovative solutions and a great customer experience”, said the GM Fleet and Commercial Operations general manager, Ed Peper.
GM says that the two pickup trucks are powered by a 6.0 liter V8 engine, which, in addition to the compressed natural gas, is offering an extended range of 650 miles. The 2013 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado commercial vehicles are coming with a three-year / 36,000mile warranty, along with a 100,000 mile limited powertrain and vehicle emissions warranty.
