When the previous model of Silverado Hybrid was delivered it managed to offer slight fuel economy improvements but for the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid we expect it to be even better. It will be almost identical to a standard gasoline powered version and only few small modifications and badges will suggest that this is a hybrid vehicle.
First generation of hybrid was offered as a mild hybrid and it was a combination of a gasoline unit and a small electric motor that mainly was used to power the engine when it stops but also to deliver power to other accessories in the system. With improvements to the hybrid technology we do expect this new hybrid model to offer a lot more.
There are still no official information’s about the powertrain that we will be getting but according to rumors it seems that the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid will offer much more powerful electric motor that will be actually usable. It might not offer electric drive only but it will be capable of helping out gasoline unit to achieve much better fuel economy. We could hear that about 25 percent improvements are expected and if this happens we could be seeing 25 mpg in city and 28 mpg in highway drive condition.
Review Of 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid
One of the problems with the previous hybrid model was the fact that it did not manage to bring back expected fuel economy rating so it would justify the price increase over the standard version. With improvements to the technology lower price could be kept so it would be still competitive and will attract additional number of buyers.
If the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid ever comes to the market it will have similar interior with the standard version. With these changes we are getting luxury and comfort on entirely new level, something that might be the benchmark for other car makers and full size trucks market. Additional technology features will be present and when this is combined with additional amount of space in cabin it is quite obvious that improvements are made. Added sound insulation will improve ride quality and lower drive fatigue. This way it will be possible to use this strong truck for daily business while later it will be able to comfortably transport family.
Exterior changes over the previous model are also easy to notice. It is quite obvious that design language draws from the iconic trucks that were delivered by this car maker, as a result we have the right balance between modern and heritage that is delivered by many previous models in this segment. High stance and improved looks increase its road presence while the front end suggests the power and rigidity of this vehicle.
2015 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid Price
We have mentioned price before and it will be interesting to see what the new model will bring. Standard gasoline model comes with a price tag of about $26.000 and for a higher trim level buyers will need to pay slightly more than $34.000. Price of hybrid will also depend on the trim level but we do expect it to be at least $5.000 more over these prices.
