If you’re looking to buy a full sized pickup truck and you also want better gas mileage than what you’re used to in this size range, you might want to take a look at the review of the 2009 Chevy Silverado Hybrid 1500 4WD Crew Cab posted at All Cars Electric. A 6.0 liter V8, a curb weight of over 5,200 lbs, and a rating of 20 mpg, what’s not to like?
Here’s the overall wrapup from the review: “The Final Word: The Chevy Silverado Hybrid looks and drives like other trucks and that’s the point. It’s functional and more fuel efficient than anything in its class. Unfortunately, what you save in gas, you pay for up front. If you’re willing to sacrifice towing capacity and in-cabin refinement for a little green-cred, this may be the truck for you. If you’re not convinced you need a new truck yet, wait a couple years to see what this world of higher CAFE standards and automaker innovation brings us.”
