The 2016 Silverado 3500HD will have a chassis cab with bi-fuel CNG option.
General Motors is looking to challenge Ford and increase sales of its heavy duty pickups to fleet buyers and municipalities with a new variant of the Chevrolet Silverado. For 2016, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD will include a chassis cab with bi-fuel CNG (compressed natural gas) option. While limited to a regular cab configuration, the new model is sure to appeal to its target audience.
Available in both two and four-wheel-drive, the Silverado chassis cab includes both a 24.5 gallon CNG behind the cab and a standard 23.5 gallon gasoline tank. With the bi-fuel truck, Chevrolet is one of only two automakers, the other being Ford, that offer a CNG flex-fuel system.
The bi-fuel chassis cab trucks are set to roll out at the end of 2015 and appeal to fleet buyers and municipalities. Buyers of heavy duty pickups usually purchase large amounts of compressed natural gas to keep at their work or fueling site. Doing so drastically reduces their annual fuel expenses.
Warranty information is much of the same you can find on commercial trucks. The powertrain is protected by a factory limited warranty of five years or 100,000 miles. Unlike other trucks, the warranty covers the CNG fuel system and components. Chevrolet also offers free two year or 24,000 miles regular maintenance under its Chevrolet Complete Care program. Lastly, all CNG parts are available from General Motors dealerships (and online) across the United States and Canada.

The new Chevrolet Corvette is better than ever, and the brand is honoring all the improvements – and the customers’ continued loyalty to the nameplate—with a special 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition. The new edition highlights Chevy’s commitment to racing—and also highlights how great the Corvette itself is at racing.

“Corvette Racing’s legacy and technology were significant influences on the development of the Corvette Z06 and the new C7.R Edition honors the direct link between the racecar and the production model,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product and marketing manager. “It also advances Chevrolet’s plan to offer special-edition models that offer a unique, personal ownership experiences, which become important parts of Corvette’s legacy.”
