Vehicle Overview

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

New for 2012
There are no significant changes for 2012.

Exterior
In passing, the Silverado Hybrid doesn't look much different from its gas-only sibling except for hybrid badges on the front fenders and the tailgate. Exterior features include:

  • Low-rolling-resistance tires
  • 18-inch wheels
  • Deeper front air dam than regular Silverado
  • Standard tonneau cover

Interior
Depending on the Silverado Hybrid's seating configuration, the crew cab can seat five or six people. Interior features include:

  • Gauge tracks 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.

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. Additional mechanical features include:

  • Cylinder deactivation
  • Regenerative braking

Safety
Standard safety features include:

  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system
  • Side curtain airbags
