The 6.0 liter V-8 engine on the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid Truck offers plenty of power, and even the electric engine has clout.
Fuel efficiency is excellent for this size vehicle, at 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
The cost of a Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid Truck is very high compared to equivalent non-hybrid trucks, and very few features are included.
Some of the fuel-efficiency features, such as the low hanging front airdam, cause more problems than they solve - this catches on the ground when going uphill or over bumps.
A non-Hybrid Silverado costs $10,000 less, offers 3,600 more pounds of towing, and only gives up five miles per gallon fuel efficiency in the city.
Towing ability is a result of stiff springs - which also means a bumpy ride inside the cab.
