2008 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid V-8 offers 21/22 MPG below $40,000

 

On November 18, 2008, Chevrolet announced pricing for the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid; the Silverado Hybrid will be the only full-size pickup on the market. The Silverado Hybrid will start at $38,995, which includes $975 destination charge, for the 2WD model with the 1HY package. The MSRP however does not reflect the $2,200 federal tax credit that will apply to many customers who purchase the Silverado Hybrid. The hybrid delivers fuel economy comparable to many midsize sedans, but has the cargo and towing expected from a full-size truck. The Silverado Hybrid will be offered in the crew cab style and available with 4WD. The Silverado Hybrid is equipped with a two-mode hybrid system and a powerful 6.0L V-8 gas engine. The EPA estimated fuel economy on the 2WD models is 21 in the city and 22 on the highway. The 4WD model is estimated to receive 20 mpg in the city and on the highway. The estimated fuel economy combined with the 26 gallon fuel tank, will deliver a range of more than 500 miles on the 2WD model and more than 470 miles with 4WD models.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

For those of you who need a full-size pick-up there is hope in the form of the new gasoline-electric Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid. For the 2009 model year, the Silverado will be the first light-duty pickup to go hybrid. The Silverado has what is called a two-mode hybrid system, which manes it can operate using either the two kilowatt motors only or with the gasoline engine combined. The advantage of this system is that the truck can operate without gas at speeds up to thirty miles per hour, while towing up to six thousand one hundred pounds. The 300-volt-nickel-metal hydride battery pack is recharged by capturing the energy when braking. This is only one out of the three ways to save gas on this Silverado. The V8 engine also shuts down half of its cylinders while coasting or light-load conditions. The third way is the EVT transmission, which houses twin electric motors, and provides nearly an infinite range of hear ratios. Other components include a unique exhaust system, eighteen inch low-rolling-resistance tires and electrically operated air conditioning. The rear wheel drive Hybrid will get an estimated 21MPG city and 22MPG highway.
