2009 Silverado Hybrid Car Review

you think of Hybrid you’ll likely envision something a Toyota Prius. But when GM the Gas Electric Hybrid Game in 2004, they started their trucks, the first of was a Silverado Mild Hybrid it could move on electric alone. It featured a 295 horse 5.3 V8 made into a 4 speed augmented by an electric motor and a 10% gain fuel economy.

Jump ahead five and this Silverado Hybrid has matured.

Utilizing two small electric fed by a 300 volt batter pack under the rear seats, the can manage the big 6 liter V8 can be supplanted by system particularly in concert the cylinder deactivation feature allows the V8 to power down to a V4 cruising.

GM uses a host of other saving tricks too in order to the advertised combined 25% gain in economy. By 4 wheel drive has rated a 20 MPG city and highway the bulk of those gains in city driving.

One of the biggest of the two-mode is how it can handle higher as compared with other systems. And though this time crew cab 4×4 match the capabilities of its gas only part, it’s not that bad pounds payload which is 17% and 5900 pounds towing is 43% less.

The whole two-mode operation is amazing especially when the was pulling away from a light in quietness as it let’s the do the work up to 30 miles per hour. I note though that the two system here wasn’t’ as transparent as the other’s have though it didn’t race any red

The only option on my tester is the six way side seat adjuster. The price as seen here is about a $2,700.75 premium. But in mind that the Silverado only comes in this with or without four drive.

Other than its GMC there are no other Hybrid ups on the market. Depending on your needs, this Silverado be a good fit for your utility and minded intentions.
