CHEVROLET AND GMC EXPAND ALTERNATIVE FUEL FLEET OFFERINGS

Expanded CNG/LPG lineup broadens fuel diversification choices



DETROIT —Chevrolet and GMC announced today that they are partnering with Power Solutions International, Inc. (PSI) to introduce heavy-duty pickups and full-size vans powered by 6.0-liter V-8 compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)-capable engines starting in the first quarter of 2017. Chevrolet also will offer CNG and LPG versions of its new Low Cab Forward commercial truck.

The announcement follows the selection of PSI, based in Wood Dale, Illinois, as General Motors Fleet’s preferred upfitter for CNG and LPG trucks. PSI is one of North America’s largest and most experienced providers of integrated turn-key, alternative-fuel powertrain solutions.

Ship-through will be offered, allowing customers to seamlessly order and take delivery from the same dealer. GM will supply vehicles equipped with the 6.0L V-8 engine with hardened valves and valve seats to PSI, which in turn will install the fuel system and other hardware and ship directly to Chevrolet and GMC dealers in all 50 states. All PSI-modified vehicles are covered by Chevrolet and GMC’s five-year/60,000-mile (whichever comes first) limited powertrain warranty.

The expanded lineup brings GM Fleet’s portfolio of alternative fuel, hybrid and EVs to more than a dozen trucks, cars and crossovers. Other recent additions include the Chevrolet Bolt EV, a Duramax 2.8-liter B20-capable Duramax diesel for the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans and all-new available 6.6-liter B20-capable Duramax diesel engines for the Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD.

“Expanding choice is the key to helping more commercial and government fleets reduce their fuel consumption, fuel costs and emissions using alternative fuels and EVs versus using traditional gasoline,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM Fleet. “There are no ‘one size fits all’ solutions for fleet managers.”

GM Fleet’s partnership with PSI follows customer demand and ongoing investment by companies across the nation in CNG refueling infrastructure.

This month, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced 55 routes that will serve as the basis for a national network of “alternative fuel” corridors spanning 35 states. Though the network is nearly 85,000 miles long, more miles will be added in the future to accommodate electric, hydrogen, propane and natural gas vehicles as additional fueling and charging stations are built. Currently four of the top five “Green Fleets,” as identified by Bobit Media Group, operate CNG-powered vehicles. All of the top 25 fleets use at least two fuels.

TODCO Introduces WeatherTite Pro™: The Lightest Weather-Resistant Roll-up Door for Trucks and Trailers

New lighter co-polymer roll-up door is 100-percent recyclable.



Marion, OH (October 2016) – TODCO, Transportation Division of Overhead Door Corporation, introduces WeatherTite™ Pro,  the next generation weather-resistant roll-up door for trailer and truck body applications.  WeatherTite Pro improves upon the proven TODCO WeatherTite™ door that eliminated the problems of swelling, warping, finish delamination and rotting experienced with wood roll-up doors when it was introduced 15 years ago.  WeatherTite Pro takes these benefits to a new level, utilizing 100 percent recyclable and highly engineered co-polymer panels that dramatically reduce weight and improve heat tolerance.

A WeatherTite Pro panel weighs 25 percent less than standard WeatherTite panels and 37 percent less than ¾”wood and ¼” plate-style panels, increasing payload potential.  The lighter door weight will also allow the option of installing a long-life counterbalance spring that reduces costly downtime and maintenance costs.

Results of ASTM D648 Heat Deflection Testing at 66 psi conducted by TODCO shows WeatherTite Pro has a 23 percent higher heat tolerance than standard WeatherTite panels, reducing the opportunity for warpage in hotter climates.

Additional features of WeatherTite Pro include:
•    Improved impact resistance
•    Smooth panel surface – Allows for an automotive quality paint finish and excellent decal adhesion
•    Automotive grade UV stability and finish color
•    Anti-Pinch Panel Joint – Eliminates pinch point at panel joint to improve safety and reduce injuries and workmen’s compensation costs
•    Anti-Drip Design – Prevents water from the exterior of the door from dripping between panels onto cargo when in operation and moving through the radius
•    Interchangeable with current WeatherTite panels
•    Available with 1” or 2” track and rollers
•    10-Year limited warranty

The list of available options includes 1” and 2” SupeRollers™ that have been tested to last up 5X longer than standard steel rollers and EZ Seals™, dual durometer side seals that reduce seal installation time by 50% compared to rubber seals.

The WeatherTite Pro roll-up door was previewed at this year’s NTEA Work Truck Show, ATA’s Technology and Maintenance Council Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition, and Truck World in Canada.   

Headquartered in Marion, Ohio, TODCO manufactures and services roll up doors, swing doors and walkramps for the trucking industry.  The company maintains manufacturing plants in Marion, Ohio and Tecate, Mexico.  For more information, go to www.todco.com.
