When it comes to making the automotive world a greener place, General Motors is in the front of the race with vehicles like the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV and various eAssist engine options on cars and trucks. However, General Motors in North America is also making it easier for commercial drivers to save money on fuel and be good the environment at the same time with new alternative fuel options for GM fleet vehicles.

When it comes to fuel options on Chevy and GMC vehicles, drivers don’t have to stick just to traditional gasoline and diesel power. There are also several CNG (compressed natural gas) and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) options on the market. These fuels offer an alternative and highly-efficient option when it comes to powering a heavy-duty vehicle. Thanks to a recently announced partnership between GM and Power Solutions International Inc., more heavy-duty pickups and full-size vans equipped with the 6.0-litre V8 will be available with the ability to burn these fuels.
These vehicles will be available in select locations within the first three months of 2017. We don’t know yet if these vehicles will be available in Manitoba at our dealership, but contact a member of our sales team to learn more about alternative fuel options at Craig Dunn Motor City.
While most vehicles that use alternative fuels are heavy-duty trucks and vans, there are also cars and SUVs available with alternative fuel options in North America (check Canadian availability separately). The Chevy Cruze is available with a B20-capable diesel engine, while the Chevy Impala is available with E85 Ethanol burning capabilities. Those seeking an SUV can take advantage of the E85-capable Chevy Equinox, Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, or GMC Terrain.
Electric vehicles from GM include the Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, and Chevy Malibu Hybrid.
