2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Hybrid Overview

The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid is powered by a V8 engine and an automatic (electrically variable) transmission that houses two electric motors. Most reviewers wrote that the Silverado Hybrid accelerates briskly, but some said that transitions between gas and electric power can be awkward. The 2013 Silverado Hybrid earns an EPA fuel economy rating of 20/23 mpg city/highway, which is great for a full-size truck. However, many reviewers criticized the regenerative braking system for its spongy pedal feel and non-linear, grabby braking action. The Silverado Hybrid can tow up to 6,100 pounds, which is one of the lowest ratings in the class.

Test drivers said the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Hybrid's cabin has a straightforward design and is built with attractive materials. The Silverado Hybrid is only available as a crew cab that has seating for up to six. Reviewers said the front seats are comfortable and that the rear seats offer plenty of head- and legroom. The 2013 Silverado Hybrid comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio and Bluetooth. Available features include a rearview camera, navigation, a USB port, leather upholstery, a power sunroof and a Bose audio system. Reviewers said the navigation system's touch screen is easy to operate, and they appreciated that it shows useful information about the operation of the hybrid system.

Other Trucks to Consider

When properly equipped, the 2013 Ford F-150 has one of the highest tow ratings in the class. Test drivers commented that the F-150 has strong brakes and were impressed with the spaciousness and generous rear legroom offered in SuperCrew cab models.

The non-hybrid 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 is available in more cab and bed configurations than the Silverado Hybrid, and auto journalists were pleased with the power generated by its available 5.3-liter V8. The Sierra can tow more than the Silverado Hybrid.
