The Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid has been re-engineered for 2009 and are powered by a 6L, 8-cylinder gasoline engine combined with a two-mode hybrid system. The Silverado can operate in all-electric mode at speeds of up to 30 mph, exclusively on its gasoline engine, or using a combination of modes when driving conditions like steep climbs, towing and hard acceleration demand. The vehicle is offered in 2WD and 4WD configurations.

In addition, the vehicle can switch from 8-cylinder to 4-cylinder operation and use stop-start technology combined with regenerative braking to improve fuel economy and reduce tailpipe emissions. The air conditioning and power steering rely on the hybrid system for power as a way to improve the vehicle's overall fuel economy. The 2009 Silverado has a towing capacity comparable to that of the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid – about 6,100 lbs. This is significantly lower than the 10,000+ towing capacities of the conventional gasoline-powered Silverado and Sierra models.

Specially designed gauges will help the driver maximize fuel economy, and will indicate the state of the vehicle's power system at any given time. As with GM's other hybrid product lines, the company is also limiting the production of the Silverado. The Silverado models are available only through a limited number of dealers, so prospective buyers are urged to consult the GM Web site for information on locating participating dealers.

Options on the Silverado include rear-view cameras for assistance while the vehicle is operating in reverse; intelligent front-seat airbags; head-curtain and side-impact airbags; cloth, vinyl or leather split 40/20/40 reclining seats; MP3 support; Bose speakers; DVD entertainment systems for crew-cab configurations; touch screen navigation radio; three-section tonneau cover; power sunroof and dual-zone climate controls. The 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid has an MSRP sticker price starting at $39,400.
