Power Solutions International features alternative-fuel GM vehicles at Work Truck Show

March 7, 2018 By    

Power Solutions International Inc. (PSI), which designs, engineers and manufactures emissions-certified, alternative-fuel power systems, is showcasing modified alternative-fuel GM vehicles at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

PSI is featuring two modified GM vehicles this year. A GM 4500HD cutaway, featuring PSI’s propane fuel (LP gas) system, is being displayed at the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) booth (5591). PSI is also participating in the Work Truck Show’s free ride-and-drive program, providing a GM Silverado 2500HD crew cab pickup featuring a PSI compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system.

“After introducing these options last year, we’re excited to be taking orders this year at NTEA,” says John Miller, PSI’s CEO. “It’s a great place to share the stage and support partners like GM and PERC, and offer customers the clean, high-performance alternatives they’re looking for to meet their economic, compliance and sustainability goals.”

In late 2016, PSI signed an agreement with GM, making it GM’s North American alternative-fuel specialty vehicle modifier for fleet, commercial and retail truck markets, a move that Miller says has diversified PSI’s alternative-fuel portfolio. PSI now offers CNG and LPG conversions for the Silverado and Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD, Express and Savana passenger vans, cargo vans, commercial cutaways and low cab forward 3500HD and 4500HD trucks.

The vehicles are powered with GM’s 6.0-liter LC8 hardened engines with fuel systems provided by PSI. The fuel systems are all U.S. EPA and CARB certified. The 3500 and 4500 LPG cutaway features PSI’s improved Bi-Phase Gen II LP fuel system, which includes patented leak-proof propane injectors. The Silverado and Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD CNG systems are also available in multiple platform and configurations.
