Instant Impression – Chevy Silverado Hybrid

It doesn’t exactly seem like a match made in heaven: a massive General Motors truck and an advanced hybrid power train. But, when you consider the copious amounts of gas the Silverado normally chugs down, the hybrid system starts to make sense. Still, the system is far from perfect, and we’ve got a bone to pick with a bizarre noise inside the dash.

    The embedded video would not play, but double clicking so it opened on the youtube site worked. That sound from the radio could be related to the OEM security system perhaps? Some glass breakage detectors have to emit a baseline sound (though usually ultrasonic, not sonic) to calibrate themselves. Or it could be the next big recall due to on-board computers…

    Just what I was thinking Kelly.

    John,

    That is a sweet truck, but wow is that price steep. I wonder if GM has plans to drop that price.

    Sounds like a rooster in the glovebox!

    It could be an illegal Mexican hiding in the dash, I believe the truck is built in Mexico.
