E85 Powers Full-Size Pickups

The Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra are the industry's first full-size pickup trucks to be available with the option to operate on ethanol (E85) fuel.

General Motors' first 50 orders for the E85 Silverado came from Monsanto Company.

“Operating field vehicles with E85 demonstrates Monsanto's ongoing commitment to the American farmer and renewable energy sources,” says Ross Bushnell, Monsanto's director of U.S. marketing.
