Chevrolet Announces 2009 Silverado Hybrid

December 4, 2007

DETROIT – Chevrolet recently introduced the 2009 Silverado Hybrid, a full-size pickup that achieves 40-percent greater city fuel economy and a 25-percent improvement in overall fuel economy over the traditional Silverado, the company reported.

Partnering General Motors’ patented 2-Mode Hybrid system and a 6.0L gas V-8, the Silverado Hybrid delivers efficient performance while maintaining full-size pickup capability, according to the automaker.

The hybrid system provides all-electric driving at low speeds, allowing fuel savings to be realized even when the truck is fully loaded or towing a trailer. Silverado Hybrid can tow up to 6,100 pounds (2,767 kg).

The all-new hybrid pickup goes on sale in late-2008 and is based on the Silverado platform that was introduced for the 2007-model year. It will be offered in the crew cab body style, 2WD and 4WD models.
