2013 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

The full-size American pickup is perhaps the most utilitarian vehicle on the market. Since most “lifestyle buyers” have left the segment – meaning fewer 110-pound soccer moms toting 60-pound kids in these 18-foot-long behemoths – the remaining truck buyers value functional capability above all else. While some in the environmental community don’t understand there are occasions when fuel economy has to be forfeited in the name of capability, trades people, commercial users, farmers and ranchers need pickup trucks.

So General Motors made sure the first pickup trucks that employed its Two-Mode Hybrid system would be nearly as capable as their non-hybrid brethren. The two-wheel drive (2WD) versions of the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid – and its twin toolbox, the GMC Sierra Hybrid – a – a proudly trumpet the crucial stats for full-size pickups. They can tow up to 6,100 pounds, the bed can haul a little more than 1,400 pounds and still deliver 20 mpg city/23 highway with a combined rating of 21 mpg. Four-wheel drive (4WD) versions have the same fuel economy numbers but give up 200 pounds of towing capacity.

A myriad of choices has long been a hallmark of Chevrolet’s Silverado full-size pickup: three cab styles and cargo box lengths, a full range of suspension setups, a shopping cart full of engines and a selection of trim levels to meet any buyer’s needs. Not so for the Silverado Hybrid. The hybrid version is only available in a four-door crew cab body style with a short box. There are, however, two trim levels, 1HY and 2HY, and a choice of either two- or four-wheel drive.

Hybrid Powertrain

It’s no surprise that the Silverado shares the same hybrid system found in the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade hybrid SUVs, since all are built on the same platform and feature the same drivetrains. The hybrid hardware combines a tweaked 6.0-liter 332-horsepower V8 gasoline engine, a 300-volt nickel-metal hydride battery pack and a two-mode hybrid transmission, referred to at GM as an electrically variable transmission (EVT).

2013 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

If you’re not familiar with it, the EVT is a marvel in packaging. In the same space as the truck’s six-speed automatic transmission are two 60-kilowatt (80 horsepower) electric motor/generators, three planetary gearsets and four traditional hydraulic wet clutches.

In simple terms, the first mode is efficient at low speeds when the truck operates solely on electric power, or a combination of the electric motors and gasoline power. When the truck comes to a stop, the gas engine shuts off. Electricity for the battery pack is supplied by capturing energy that is normally wasted when the vehicle is decelerating or the brakes are applied.

Mode two operates at highway speeds. The motor/generators work with the planetary gearsets, so the EVT is capable of an infinite range of gear ratios just like a continuously variable transmission. CVTs are known for optimizing fuel economy, but can’t handle heavy loads. GM’s version of the CVT does so by locking the planetary gearsets to let the four heavy-duty fixed gears – still the most efficient way to manage power and fuel economy – take over and handle a load like trailer towing.

The wizardry of the two mode isn’t the pickup’s sole fuel saver. Four of the V8’s cylinders can take a rest and the engine can operate in an economical V4 mode from around 40 mph up to near 70 mph. Master this technique along with the characteristics of the two-mode, and the 26-gallon fuel tank will let you cruise for more than 500 miles on unleaded gasoline.

Exterior And Interior

The only visual difference between the Hybrid and a gasoline Silverado is the small hybrid badges on the fender and tailgate. Redesigned for the 2007 model year, a bold dual port chrome grille, with a prominent Chevrolet gold bow tie, is flanked by large, vertical headlamps that are pushed to the other edges of the body. A powerdome hood rises from the front end, and the fast, 57-degree sloped windshield aided the Hybrid’s fuel economy due to enhanced aerodynamics.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

Unlike the Tahoe Hybrid SUV, the truck did not undergo major cosmetic surgery to provide improved aerodynamics. Instead, the Silverado received a barely noticeable chin tuck (a deeper, full-width front air-dam), a slightly lowered ride height and a standard tonneau cover on the cargo bed, for better aerodynamics – cloth on regular model, a three-piece hard shell if you get luxury trim. These changes add up to a drag coefficient of 0.412. Certainly not an earth changing number, but Chevrolet claims it’s best in class.

The 2007 makeover resulted in a cabin that discarded cheap, flimsy plastics for a look that nudges close to what’s found in an Audi or BMW with quality-feeling materials and nearly invisible seams. The dashboard is simple with large controls – from the door handles to the radio and climate control knobs, most can be operated wearing work gloves. It’s a basic design, but logical and pleasant. For a six-year old design, it sill has style.

Full-size pickups have big seats, and in the base 1HY that’s a cloth covered 40-20-40 split bench seat up front that is power height adjustable for the driver. Combined with the rear bench, this configuration can seat up to six. Grab the premium 2HY and you’ll find comfortable leather bucket seats for the driver and the front companion. Regardless of model choices, this is a crew cab and there’s enough head, should and leg room that even with six people there’s a feeling of spaciousness.

On The Road

Anyone familiar with pickups of the 1970s and 1980s will appreciate just how refined these trucks have become. The Silverado Hybrid drives less like a truck and more like a full-size SUV. Ride quality is quite good; only certain bumps and surfaces betray the solid rear axle. To smooth out the ride, Chevy engineered a mid-body hydraulic mount for the Hybrid. The improvement was so apparent, GM added the mount on all of its pickup trucks.

As with all big pickups, push the Silverado hard on a curve and body roll is noticeable. The electrically boosted steering is on the numb side, but there is no need to constantly adjust the steering wheel to keep it between the white lines. Brakes are impressive for a hybrid vehicle this big. There are three brake systems that are electronically calibrated to bring the Silverado to a stop: standard four-wheel disc brakes, the electric motors in the transmission, and hydraulic regenerative brakes that use the electric motors to capture and store brake energy in the truck’s batteries.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

Driver control dynamics belie the hybrid’s 5,641-pound curb weight. The truck’s handling stability is due in part to a fully boxed frame, coil-over-shock front suspension and a wide front and rear track (the distance between opposite wheels).

Mash the accelerator and 367 pounds-feet of torque melds together with the engine’s horsepower as a reminder that there’s big iron under the hood. But that’s not what the Silverado Hybrid is about.

During the Hybrid’s press introduction, consummate pickup guy, Bruce Smith, and I chose to drive a Silverado hooked up to a double-axle trailer loaded with a 5,000 pound, 22-foot Sea Ray powerboat. Within minutes, Bruce mastered the technique of easing from a stop and staying in full electric drive up to 15-16 mph before the gas engine took over the towing duty. From there, the pickup drove just like its gas-engined brethren. I, on the other hand, could only manage up to 10 mph in electric only mode.

Since then, I’ve driven the 2WD and 4WD Silverado Hybrids for hundreds of miles, and both trucks returned fuel economy numbers at, or slightly above, the EPA estimates. We found that accelerating from a stop rather briskly, and then easing off the accelerator to allow the electric motors to take over, gave us the most distance in electric-only drive up to around 30 mph. Same procedure works for implementing the V4 operation of the engine – at around 40 mph, smoothly boost speed and then ease off. Of course when power acceleration is really needed, a quick, firm push on the accelerator unleashes the V8’s 332 horsepower and 367 pounds-feet of torque plus, assist from the electric motors.

Economics

Does buying a 2013 Silverado Hybrid make financial sense? The work-oriented 1HY 2WD has a sticker price of $39,890; the 4WD is priced starting at $43,265. The uplevel 2HY 2WD starts at $46,670 and jumps to $60,045 with 4WD. Both have a high content of standard features, and the hybrid powertrain adds roughly $3,500 to a comparably equipped non-hybrid pickup, which returns just 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway and a combined 17 mpg. Racking up 15,000 miles a year, the hybrid system saves about 175 gallons of gasoline annually. With unleaded fuel again around $4.00 per gallon ($4.09 in the Seattle metro area), that’s a yearly savings of $700.

When comparing the Silverado Hybrid’s price with other trucks, whether they’re Chevys or other brands, it’s important to look at the features, not just the base price. The 1HY is standard equipped with such niceties as Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, and a trailering package. Upgraded 2HY models add a standard navigation system, Bose premium stereo and leather seating. So, if a pickup priced in the $40,000 to $45,000 range is what you are looking for, the Silverado Hybrid is worth a look.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

Since a crew cab is the Silverado Hybrid’s only body style, appeal is somewhat limited. And, for those needing either a longer bed or more than the 6,100 pound towing capacity, a regular Silverado or another brand may be the best option. If fuel economy and more towing/hauling capabilities are needed, Ford’s F-150 with the V-6 EcoBoost engine is rated at 16 city/22 highway/18 combined and can tow 11,300 pounds. Comparably equipped, the F-150 starts close to $39,000.

OK, so the Silverado Hybrid isn’t the poster child for the Sierra Club, but pickups are a must for many businesses, especially those in the construction trades. And 23 mpg may still seem profligate to your average Toyota Prius driver, try hauling a load of sheetrock to a job site in a Prius hybrid.

What’ Next For The Silverado Hybrid?

General Motors’ had planned an all-new full-size pickup truck lineup including the Silverado Hybrid for the 2013 model year, but put off production as it worked its way through bankruptcy. A redesigned, re-engineered Silverado line is expected to debut as a 2014 model at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in January or 2013 Chicago Auto Show in February, with production beginning next October.

The big question is, will a Silverado Hybrid – or any of its sibling hybrid models – be included in the redesign? At this writing, it appears the answer is no.

We’ve reported that four sources told GM Inside News recently this was the case – but this news has not yet been confirmed by General Motors. The sources, believed to be reliable, said GM will discontinue development of its next-generation hybrid light trucks including the Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe and GMC Sierra and Yukon. There is a possibility the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid may be carried forward, but it appears they may all be canceled unless GM says otherwise.

Should the Silverado Hybrid, and its corporate cousins, make an appearance as a 2014 model, fuel economy gains will come from weight reduction, a smaller displacement V8 engine, upgrading the battery to a lithium-ion pack, revised electric motors and possibly, an all-new four-mode electrically variable transmission.

    A hybrid pickup makes a lot of sense. Much of the towing rating is dependent on low-speed torque required to drag a wet boat up a ramp out of the water. Putting a high-torque electric motor on an otherwise underpowered truck could save a lot of fuel costs for small businesses and save a lot of fuel and emissions for everyone.

    The way I see it, America’s rural and blue collar people are part of the solution, not just the problem.

    All the farmers I know are deeply concerned about high energy prices. They’re in a competitive business with low margins. Farmers who are smart about energy are going to stay in business, the others are going to move to the city.

    Almost every day I meet a rural or blue collar person who’s doing something about the energy crunch: like my neighbor who worked as a diesel mechanic in the first gulf war, and came back to the states to work on biofuel systems. The other day my four year old and I were walking around the industrial part of town and found a guy at the machine shop who was working on his electric car.

    Any cowboy who isn’t concerned about energy has a big hat but no cattle. Give Americans a pickup with great towing power that sips gas, toss in the ability to work as a jobsite generator, and they’ll eat it up.

  • Dan Hanby

    Hybrid pick-ups interesting. However Still wonder why Toyota hasn’ come out with a model. We have had Priuses for years. Gave the first one to yooungest son and wife. Wife and I have an ’03 and an ’04 and are waiting for a pick-up to be available.

  • Emery Smith

    So let’s downsize to the Colorado and put in some real job-site accessories such as hydraulic, air and electric power sources that could be a multi-tasking construction power source for real use application. Can it be that hard?

    I wont buy another truck unless it’s a hybrid.

  • B-62

    I am a contractor and I have wanted an alternative to our ICE pick-ups for several years now. The large dump trucks use electric motors to drive each wheel. Electric motors power trains and ships as well. I wished to purchase a Silverado hybrid a couple of years ago, but most dealers looked at me as if I had two heads when I inquired; very little information was available. Dealers need to be more aware in order to “sell” us, not wait for us to buy what they have on their lots.
    Most of us who use our trucks for work are very much concerned about all the times spent with no load at all. But when you need two pallets of shingles, a load of manure, 50 sheets of 3/4 ply, or whatever, you need substance and power. I want the ability to haul when necessary and still run errands. Never having to rent another generator would also be fantastic. And, a compressor and couple pneumatic tanks to supply my air tools.

  • Jose Nunez

    Hi, i know things are hard to catch up on new fuel saving trucks, go an extra mile and try to make the engine as small as possible and electronic propulsion system more aggressive, or just completely electric . At least 250+ mile range. There’s the option of fuel cell that can be produced independently…Be the first to make fuel cell stations around America…

  • D123

    All Hybrid technology lovers: Would it not be smart to mass produce PHEV – Plug in Hybrid Electriv Vehicles that could be charged from a 110 V wall outlet when not in use. Then have the first 40 to 60 miles of local driving done under battery power.

    Since 80% of US driving is less than 20 miles per trip, a battery capacity of 40 to 60 miles per charge would not consume a drop of gasoline on those local trips. If we have to travel longer distances then the hybrid ICE could kick in.

    Do you think this kind of an approach will upset oil companies and our OPEC friends?

  • nebajnim

    I can’t see any real cowboy not caring about gas prices. Have you been to Montana? It is a hundred miles to anywhere. That might mean a round trip of $80 at $4/gallon.

    Another thing to point out to the macho insecurity type who “doesn’t care” about the environment: Sign your check over to the Middle East. That is where the bulk of the gasoline comes from. So getting 50% more mpg means 50% less money to foriegn countries.

  • qaz

    Where is the hybrid small pickup? 95% of the time all you need is a small pickup. IF you know people with big trucks then you can always get whatyou need without having to buy it. IF there was a prius pickup I would buy it TODAY. (like the ABAT…wow!) You KNOW without any doubt fuel is going to go way back up. Why get stuck with a 14-18 or 15-20 mpg dog? I have a 1986 BMW 735i that gets 19 city and 31 highway and on the original sales receipt we paid gas guzzler tax! What is wrong with this country? In europe and asia there are tons of great high mileage vehicles. THink there’s some “conspiracy’ that keeps them out of our country? I don’t know about that but something is very wrong with the way this country works these days…

  • bud

    I owned a 07 silverado hybrid. The onlything special about it was that it had the 110 volt outlets.Two in the cab and two more in the bed . Was great for fishing and powr outages if you wanted to hear a v-8 generator running. And the regenerative braking system was the greatest for doing donuts on the interstate in winter, the first one was easy then the truck decides which way direction you will pull the next five or so. Nice ride but isnt worth the hype or the added cost.

    Just what I always wanted!! A $45,000 work truck?? With leather seats, Bluetooth, dual -zone climate control, Bose sound system!

Why not a small simple CHEAP!!! hybrid pickup? But of course someone will buy it just to say that they have a HYBRID TRUCK!! What a joke.

    Seventeen miles to the gallon really is pretty good for a truck. I look forward to checking one of these out here soon. My biggest worry cost of ownership. I drive my trucks till the wheels fall off. I’ll probably lean more toward the GMC Sierra model. I prefer GMC styling and front grill.

  • Anonymous

    @Anon – I don’t want to sidetrack this thread off of the Silverdo Hybrid, but…

    If you go to a job site, I bet you will find more 1/2 ton PUs than 3/4 and 1 toners. Reason: most of the worker bees need a PU but can’t afford the bigger trucks, owners and a few others can. Also, it depends on what stage a work site is in. Early on, during excavation etc., is when you’ll see the beefier trucks.

  • Mr.Bear

    I disagree that a lot of “lifestyle” truck drivers have left the market. I know plenty of truck drivers that haul as much in their truck as I do in my Prius.

    Going from 17 mpg combined to 21 mpg combined is almost at 24% increase. Any car or truck that increases it’s efficient by 24% should be a poster child for the green community.

  • Logan

    I’m surprised that the Sierra Hybrid only costs $820 more than the Silverado Hybrid – good deal for the better styling, in my opinion.

  • SteveM

    What I can’t understand is why do they put the 6.0 liter engine in this truck? Why not the 5.3 that’s standard on the other half tons? The 5.3 has cylinder deactivation as well and is what they use in the XFE version? Better yet, why not the 300+ hp V6 from the Camaro?

  • Erick Belmer

    I own a 09 GMC Hybrid truck. If you pay attention to how you drive it, you can get better milage than the sticker says. I live in a small town and am able to accellerate slower and keep it in electric mode for longer periods of time. I also usually only uses 8 cylinders when it starts the engine then quickly shuts off four. I town I’m getting around 22-23 mpg and about 22 on the highway. With that big 6L gas engine and the electric motor assist it has enough torque to keep the truck in 4 cylinder mode most of the way on the highway which I often see 26-32 mph until a hill comes up and I needs to turn on V8 Power where the MPG changes to 10-14mpg! This is a great truck and I have no complaints with it. I pull a 4500lb trailer with ease. It will pull it up to 23 mph on electric only. Really cool when you get to your destination and are taxi-ing to find a parking space. People always ask is than thing ON? I proudly say, “Yep” it’s a GM Hybrid!

  • acollins24

    It’s heartening to know that even in the truck segment, American carmakers are finally waking up and embracing hybrid technology. There are a lot of people out there who own trucks in America and this not only offers a unique proposition for them to buy a new one, it also eases their ecological conscience because trucks are often associated with V8s or giant diesels.

    On a side note, that Adrians tint is looking great!

    Max 34/23 mpg if I use it on Electric and hybrid mode. Also, on V8 power is no slush.

    I have made myself the same question. Is not the torque numbers. nor is the 4100 rpm that max torque happens. Only advantage of the LFA 6.0L will be it’s all aluminium build (block, heads).

    I will sure love a V6 Camaro engine Version, turbocharged, with 6 to 8 gears 2mode or 4mode hybrid Transmission.

    BMW and Mercedes Benz is using the same Transmission/Hybrid platform in their SUVS, and the X6 hybrid is a Bi-Turbo V8 (420HP IIRC)

    I just took delivery on a 2012 Silverado 1HY Hybrid. I had had a 2005 Escape Hybrid for the last 7 years, and I became very fond of it; the gas mileage was as good as it gets, and it was quite utilitarian, something that I look for at my age (69). But when the Silverado Hybrid loomed on the horizon, I became really intrigued. A full size pickup? 6000 lb towing? 6 liter V-8? 3.08 rear? A full hybrid? 20+ city and 23+ hwy? Active cylinder management? It didn’t take long. The Escape Hybrid couldn’t handle a tow sleeve, and it didn’t have a reverse gas gear. And it ain’t a pickup.

    I traded the ’05 Escape Hybrid and an ’07 F-150. The Silverado 1HY does the job of both, and is better at it. Anyone out there who is leaning towards one? Don’t look back!

    I have a 2007 Nissan Frontier v6 4wd that I use to travel to work and back every day 15 miles, mostly city driving here in the north east. In addition, I have rental properties that I work on the side and I need to haul materials all the time. Gas is terrible at 12-13 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway.

    I would love to see a reasonably priced hybrid mid- sized or full sized truck for us small business owners. So why haven’t we seen one after all these years?

    chevy trucks have had returnless injection since around ’05-’06. The ‘low fuel’ light comes on with a few gallons left in the tank, and you’re going to screw up the pump if you drive it around the last few gallons without fuel.

    BTW, there are guys with stock scswb silverado 2wd 4.3 with the 5-speed getting 21-23 average city+highway, that is with the 3.42 rear. Manuals weren’t offered after 2006. There are a few 4.8 (and even older 5.3) silverados with the 5 speed that will net a few more mpg.

    The highest rating mpg of any silverado is the scswb 4.3 with 5-speed and 3.23 rear. These will net you 23mpg+ average all day long.

    I am glad I came to this blog. Was trying to find out if GM ever came out with the 2 cyl. diesel for the hybrid…. I read a report on this back in 2008. Suppost to come out in 2009, or 10.. Didn’t have the split cty/hyw, but had aveage of 99 mpg.. I have a 1996 6.5 turbo, 1 ton dually 4×4.. I get 20 mpg around my farm, and town, and 28, to 34 highway.. Also, I use B-99 recylced frier oil.. I smell like McDonals going down the road.. ;o)~ Road diesel is $4.18 at the truck stop, and Im paying $3.31 for B-99.. I also use the B-99 in all my farm equipment.. And, I’m paying $2.84 a gal. I have to mix it in the colder months 50/50

    A friend has a 2010 VW diesel, and he has used B-99 in it for 2 years.. 87,900 miles He, had VW take his engine apart, just to check if there was any extra wear on it.. They told him it looked brand new, and not to worry about the warrenty. In fact, they started to use B-99 in their diesels At $.87 less a gal..

    OK 2 things
    1. What is the ACTUAL mpg’s when hauling basically a full load? 5 or 6 in the truck, bed at capacity and towing a 4000 pound trailer?
    2. More people need to complain to GM about the fact that what we need is a BASIC work truck, hand crank windows, no extras like the onstar crap, and so on. We need a basic work truck, bare minimum stuff on it, and we need to be able to pick what options we want on it and what we don’t want. My biggest gripe with all the manufacturers is that they charge us WAY TOO MUCH for these, then tell us what we “have to have” on it. I need to pick exactly what I want and NOT pay 30K plus for it. Then they have the nerve to wonder why their sales are down

    Thanks to how Fractal Tree aggregates and rebalances data, TokuDB writes to flash memory in much larger blocks than a typical database engine. This approach reduces write amplification, in which the same data is rewritten to disk multiple times.

    Strange to see comments from 5 years ago on a story that just came out about the Hybrid truck. Anyway, I don’t have a need for a hybrid truck, or a regular truck for that matter, but it is definitely a good idea especially if it can tow more than its own weight. The MPG jump isn’t as big as some would like but its still a step in the right direction.

    On a side note, Ford and Toyota decided to collaborate on designing a hybrid system for pickup trucks. That should be really interesting. Who know when it will come to market though.

    Almost every day I meet a rural or blue collar person who’s doing something about the energy crunch: like my neighbor who worked as a diesel mechanic in the first gulf war, and came back to the states to work on biofuel systems. The other day my four year old and I were walking around the industrial part of town and found a guy at the plastic machining shop who was working on his electric car.

    The big issue is when putting your dolly on the back of your pickup truck and it’s too bumpy, it is liable to fall off and hurt you or surrounding drivers.
