The Silverado hybrid uses a two-mode transmission using two 60Kw electric motors that allows the vehicle to drive up to 30 mph on electric power alone. The powertrain also allows GM’s legendary Vortec 6.0 liter V8 (equipped with cylinder deactivation) to run in four-cylinder mode for extended periods of time. The trucks will come equipped with a special lightweight fiberglass cap to protect equipment in the bed and will be delivered to Verizon in July.
