2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid Preview
The brawniest hybrid yet
What it Is
2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid Preview – 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show: For a boxer it might a be hammering bruised kidney and for a Jenny Craig client it might be avoiding buttered dinner rolls. The point is to focus on an area that will provide the greatest impact, and that’s just what Chevrolet will do when it launches the 2009 Silverado Hybrid in late 2008. With a reported 40-percent improvement in fuel economy while still providing plentiful V-8 power and a 6,100-lb. towing capacity, Chevy’s full-size pickup could potentially provide an impact equivalent to all of GM’s current hybrid passenger cars combined.
