IMPCO Automotive Awarded Program for Chevrolet Silverado
IMPCO Automotive was awarded General Motors’ bi-fuel Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Cab Chassis three year program for model years 2016, 2017 and 2018. The new Cab Chassis program expands IMPCO Automotive’s existing OEM working class vehicle programs for GM, which include Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD pickups with multiple Cab and bed configurations, and dedicated CNG full-size Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans.
As an extension of GM’s manufacturing process, IMPCO Automotive installs the CNG fuel systems using OEM processes and standards. All of the CNG fuel systems are warranted and validated by General Motors. The 24.5 gallon CNG tank in addition to the 23.5 gallon gasoline tank on the Silverado 3500HD provides fueling flexibility and extended range between fill-ups.
OEM conversion of the vehicles will be done at IMPCO Automotive’s manufacturing facility in Union City, Indiana, with ship to commerce (STC) approval from GM expected to coincide with the gasoline vehicle’s release for MY2016. The Cab Chassis award is added to IMPCO Automotive’s existing OEM contracts and the Ford QVM and Isuzu ship through programs.
