2005 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

2005 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid

Chevrolet's full-size pickup receives a number of improvements for 2005, including a new hybrid-powered model. Chevy says the 5.3-liter V-8 and electric motor tandem provides up to a ten-percent boost in fuel economy. Though this translates into little more than a mile or so per gallon of gasoline, the onboard electric motor can be used as a portable generator on a job site or at the campground. Also new for '05 is a more-powerful 5.3-liter V-8 engine on 4WD 1500 Extended Cabs with a standard cargo box that now produces 310 horsepower. Other functional changes include revisions in wheel and tire choices, and the availability of a power sunroof on all Extended Cab and Crew Cab models. Front-disc, rear-drum anti-lock brakes are now standard on all light-duty models except those equipped with Quadrasteer four-wheel steering. A new 3.23 rear axle ratio is standard on 2WD models, and a more powerful, 145-amp alternator is standard on all models for 2005. Meanwhile, Heavy Duty models now come with a redesigned hood and grille. With its wide array of engines, cab and bed configurations and payloads, the Silverado (along with its GMC counterpart, the Sierra) can meet a wide range of buyers' needs. Its myriad powerplants include the standard 4.3-liter V-6, as well as available 4.8-liter, 5.3-liter and 6.0-liter V-8 engines. HD models can be fitted with a diesel V-8 or a big-block 8.1-liter gasoline V-8.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
