Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck

The Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck is, according to GM, the world's first full-size hybrid pickup.

Besides being useful in on-road and off-road conditions, the Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck can also be used as a gasoline-powered electrical generator as needed.

The Silverado Hybrid Truck has two conventional 3-pronged outlets underneath the rear seat and two in the back on the bed.

These four 120-volt, 20 amp electrical auxiliary power outlets can power chainsaws, power tools, lights, camping appliances and laptop computers, to name a few. GM says that the Silverado Hybrid Truck can supply power to these items for up to 32-hours straight before needing a fill up. The Silverado Hybrid Truck also comes with a battery pack comprises of three 14-volt units plus the standard 12-volt.

The Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck features a 295 hp Vortec 5300 V8 Engine with 335 lb.-ft. of torque and a standard Hydra-Matic 4L60-E four-speed automatic transmission. The Silverado Hybrid also squeezes a compact induction electric motor (starter-generator) between the engine and transmission, replacing the conventional alternator and starter motor. Fuel economy gains are only 15-percent over the standard gasoline-only Silverado, but emissions are reduced by 37-percent, making the Silverado Hybrid Truck one of the greenest trucks in its class.

The Silverado Hybrid Truck achieves its gains in fuel efficiency by shutting off the gasoline engine while idling (the electric motor quickly restarts the engine when accelerating) and by inactivating some cylinders when decelerating. Regenerative braking is also used to recharge the 42-volt lead-acid battery pack. The Silverado Hybrid is available in both 2WD and 4WD.

The Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck was initially rolled out only the fleet customers, but it is now available to average consumers as well now, nationwide. The Silverado Hybrid has had some success stories already, saving the day at the NASCAR Brickyard 400 by providing power during an outage that affected the scoreboard and audio systems. Some of those in Florida affected by the recent hurricanes also found the Silverado Hybrid to be useful as an auxiliary power device.

The Chevy Silverado Hybrid Truck may not be the environmentalist's dream machine, but it is certainly a step in the right direction. Raising public awareness about the utility of hybrid vehicles will help in the long-term transition to greener and more useful vehicles. And this can't be all bad, can it?
