Hybrid Trucks ~ Optimize Fuel Economy
Hybrid Trucks and highly efficient vehicles have always interested me. As part of my carpentry business I drive a Chevy 2500 pick up for many reasons; including hauling, towing a tool trailer and snowplowing. Fuel economy is not one of them and has never been a variable that I could control.
The 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 Hybrid pickup truck, available in two- and four-wheel-drive models, features patented hybrid technology to optimize fuel economy.
The advanced 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System allows the pickup to operate up to 30 miles per hour in electric-only mode. And GM’s innovative two-mode hybrid transmission adds extra power via two electric motors.
This gives Sierra Hybrid best-in-class fuel economy and a 40% improvement in city fuel economy when compared to non-hybrid models. Plus, the powerful 6.0L V8 engine delivers the towing, hauling and tailoring capabilities truck fans expect in a full-size GMC pickup.
