2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Hybrid

For truck lovers, the phrase "fuel efficient full-size pickup truck" is no longer a contradiction in terms. As America's first two-mode full-size hybrid pickup truck, the Silverado Hybrid5 offers fuel efficiency you just can't get with any other competitor – 20 MPG city and 23 MPG highway6. But that's just half the story. Silverado Hybrid also delivers the kind of legendary performance you expect from a Chevy truck: 332 horsepower, 367 lb.-ft. of torque, up to 6,100 lbs. of towing capacity (2WD)7, and up to 1,527 lbs. of payload capacity (2WD)8.

2-Mode Hybrid Features

The 2-Mode System is a patented hybrid technology with two mode optimized for city and highway driving.

  • First mode: At low speed and light loads, the vehicle can operate by electric power or engine power, or any combination
  • Second mode: Primarily for highway speeds providing electric assist and full V8 power when needed. It integrates sophisticated electronic controls, Active Fuel ManagementTM, cam phasing and late-intake valve closure for efficient engine operation
  • 2-Mode system allows for more compact packaging because powerful electric motors are designed to fit within the space of a conventional automatic transmission
