Vehicle Overview
The Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid is a half-ton pickup that achieves 40 percent better city fuel economy and 25 percent better overall fuel economy than a gas-powered Silverado, but can still pull a 6,100-pound trailer. Available exclusively in the crew cab body style, the Silverado Hybrid is expected to use one-quarter less gas than a regular Silverado.

In passing, the Silverado Hybrid doesn't look much different from its gas-only sibling. At a buyer's discretion, the rocker panels and cab glass can be plastered with special "Hybrid" graphics. Hybrid badges on the front fenders and the tailgate are standard.
  • Low-rolling-resistance tires
  • 18-inch wheels
  • Deeper front air dam than regular Silverado
  • Standard tonneau cover

Depending on the Silverado Hybrid's seating configuration, the crew cab can seat five or six people.
  • Gauge trucks optimal fuel economy
  • Hybrid badge on tachometer
  • Optional navigation system

Under the Hood
The Silverado Hybrid's 6.0-liter V-8 teams with GM's Electrically Variable Transmission, which integrates two electric motors into the transmission housing. Those motors are powered by a 300-volt hybrid battery pack under the backseat. With this system, the truck can accelerate on electric power alone, like the Toyota Prius and other hybrids. E85 flex-fuel compatibility is new for 2010.

The rear-wheel-drive Silverado Hybrid can tow up to 6,100 pounds, while the four-wheel-drive model can pull 5,900 pounds. Both figures trail the maximum ratings of the regular crew cab by significant margins (more than 10,000 pounds).

Additional energy-saving measures include:
  • Cylinder deactivation
  • Regenerative braking

Standard safety features include:
  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Optional side curtain airbags
