Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.

These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

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.
Exterior 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.

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:
Safety Standard safety features include:
Electronic stability system
Optional side curtain airbags
