Natural Gas Option To Cost $11,000 Premium On GM Pickups

Ford, GM, and Chrysler have all recently trotted out natural gas options on their full-size, heavy duty pickup. It offers fleet buyers another option for fueling up their trucks besides relying on gasoline or diesel…but it will come with a price premium. And in the case of GM’s Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 HD trucks, that price premium is a whooping $11,000.

Republicans and anti-EV advocates like to talk about the price premium that comes with buying an electric car, and they are absolutely right. The Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt both cost roughly twice what the equivalent compact car would cost. But at the very least, the electricity used to charge up EV’s could cost you less than $2 a day.
