Chevy will introduce a hybrid version
of their Silverado pickup truck. It will use their new "two mode" hybrid
system. GMC says it achieves a 40-percent greater city fuel economy
and a 25-percent improvement in overall fuel economy.
The truck will include:
a 6.0 liter V8 with variable valve timing
all-electric driving up to 30 mph
Active Fuel Management
electrically variable transmission (this is good for people who tow
42-volt power steering
The result is a truck with a 26-gallon fuel tank, and a cruising range
of more than 500 miles.
Two wheel drive and 4 wheel drive will be available.
If you need a pickup truck for your work, this one is worth waiting
Look for the Sierra Hybrid in the fourth quarter of 2008.
