The 2012 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid vs. the 2012 Toyota Tundra

Drivers in Ruskin, FL who are intrigued by the concept of the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid should head to Cox Chevrolet in Bradenton. The Silverado, of course, has made a name for itself by offering impressive power and capability, standing out even from most other pickup trucks on the market. Chevrolet thought of yet another way to improve this vehicle, too, though: they added a hybrid powertrain. Available in 2WD or 4WD, you’ll get a 6.0L V8 engine that works in concert with two 60kW electric motors. The end result is that this truck can tow up to 6,100 pounds.

Drivers who are in the market for a pickup truck may consider going with something more traditional — so how does the 1HY model of this hybrid compare to the 2012 Toyota Tundra CrewMax LTD?

The Hybrid Delivers

Sure, the 2012 Toyota Tundra is a good truck, but ultimately falls short of Chevy’s hybrid pickup. Ruskin drivers will surely be impressed with the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid; here are a few reasons why this will be a great choice:

  • Being a hybrid, of course, the Silverado’s primary appeal is in its fuel economy: you’ll get 20 mpg city/23 mpg highway. The Tundra simply can’t compare, offering 14 mpg city/18 mpg highway. This adds up in a big way.
  • Maybe you need to bring some people with you? You’ll want the new Silverado Hybrid, which has room for six passengers. The Tundra only seats five.
  • When you invest in a pickup truck, you want to make sure that your investment is protected, of course. Chevrolet will give you a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty; Toyota offers only a 5-year/60,000-mile plan. Chevy also offers superior roadside assistance coverage: a 5-year/100,000-mile package vs. a 2-year/25,000-mile plan.
