2012 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

America's first two-mode Hybrid full-size pickup.

When we developed Silverado Hybrid1- we wanted to put up some good numbers. That's why its EPA estimated 20 MPG city/23 highway is so important, as is the fact that it offers better city fuel efficiency than a 6-cylinder Ford Fusion.2 With 332 horsepower, 367 lb.-ft. of torque, up to 6,100 lbs. of towing power (2WD)3 and a payload capacity of up to 1,527 lbs. (2WD),4 Silverado Hybrid delivers the power and performance you expect from a Chevy.
