Re: Silverado Two-Mode Hybrid
Not to argue an old thread Bob, but the Silverado did go through a pretty extensive weight reduction program. They took 300 pounds out of the vehicle so that the 600 pound hybrid drive train increase would only amount to a 300 net increase. Hense, no drivers/passenger seat memory, chrome clad aluminum, wheels, no LTZ interior, and many more less noticable minor changes to get the weight down. But the aerodynamics are less than desirable as is the case in a "pickup". I think they did a great job in the give and take department to reach an adequate compromise to deliver a great vehicle. Not the mileage some may hope for but in a pickup, not bad. Way to go GM!
