It appears as GM dumps the volt they are moving toward natural gas and I applaud them for doing both. America is the Saudi Arabia of natural gas and this is a step in the right direction. Infrastructure to distribute natural gas is a problem but GM is doing this right by making their new vehicle run on gasoline too. This could really pave the way to get us off foreign oil. Another great thig is this vehicle will have twice the driving range as a regular gas car, GM may be back.
"At a time when gas prices continue to rise, alternative fuel sources for vehicles is a topic on just about every driver's mind. General Motors recently announced that they will debut two new pickup trucks next year that will run on both regular gasoline and compressed natural gas."
The new cars will use a system similar to how the Chevrolet Volt handles electricity and gas. When the Volt runs out of electric power, it switches to gasoline. A similar transition happens on the new versions of the Silverado and Sierra, with the truck using its natural gas reserves first before automatically switching to gasoline. Starting with two full tanks, the automaker says that drivers will be able to travel 650 miles before needing to fill up.
