From the inside out, Chevy’s 2013 Silverado Hybrid will rise to the occasion, no matter what it is. From rough-and-tumble hauling jobs to the most high-class black-tie affair, this muscular ride can fit in anywhere, without enlarging your carbon blueprint much at all.
If you’re looking at hauling a trailer or taking your Silverado on rugged terrain, you know that those kinds of activities come with increased risks. Especially if your most precious cargo will be riding with you, you’ll be glad to learn about Chevy’s 3-stage safety plan. Before an accident occurs, StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System helps you keep on track and in control. A Tire Pressure Monitor alerts you to varying inflation levels in order to give you the ability to respond as soon as possible, should a flat tire occur. For those times when such preventive measures simply aren’t enough, the 2013 Silverado Hybrid is equipped with six air bags and a high-strength steel safety cage designed to absorb crash energy in key crush zones. While we hope these measures are enough to keep you safe in the case of a collision, we can’t promise anything; that’s why OnStar® Automatic Crash Response comes standard for the first six months.
Just because the Silverado Hybrid contains so many safety considerations doesn’t mean it has the sleekness and comfort level of Medieval armor; however, it does shine. From the chrome mesh grille to the leather-appointed bucket seats, this truck looks and feels like a high-class ride. Chevy adds to the bling factor with two new, attention-getting color options in 2013: Blue Topaz Metallic and Deep Ruby Metallic. Chrome clad aluminum wheels help lighten the vehicle, contributing to its amazing EPA-estimated 20MPG city, 23 highway. The cabin can be either quiet or filled with sounds you love, matching the gasoline-only line of Silverados in its acoustical details. Mobile apps accessible through myChevrolet allow you to remotely lock or unlock your truck, start the engine, turn on or off lights, sound horn, or even set the temperature. Bluetooth wireless technology, OnStar® Turn-by-Turn Navigation, a rear-vision camera system, and Chevrolet Wi-Fi by Autonet Mobile round out the deal, making sure you’re as connected you want to be.
Of course, what distinguishes the Hybrid from other Siverados is its eco-savvy ways. Audited by a third-party sustainability auditor, Chevy is serious about making sure our fuel-saving technology is second-to-none. The 2013 Silverado Hybrid boasts an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city, 23 highway, rating, with its electrically variable transmission enhancing smoothness and trailering capability. Factory-filled engine oil that meets GM’s new dexosTM specification, contributes to better fuel economy, as well. Continuously Variable Valve Timing (VVT), which is available on most models, adjusts airflow in and out of the combustion chamber, contributing to both fuel economy and lower emissions levels. Active Fuel Management™ means deactivating fuel delivery to 4 cylinders when they’re not needed, further maximizing fuel economy.
