Impressive city fuel economy for a full-size truck
Edmunds




Among full-size pickups, the Silverado 1500 lineup is quite fuel-efficient: EPA ratings range from 13 to 15 mpg in the city, and 19 and 21 mpg on the highway across non-hybrid V-6 and V-8 variants. Surprisingly, there isn't much of a difference in fuel economy between the base V-6 version and the optional V-8s—possibly due to the fact that top 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s get a six-speed automatic, while the 4.3-liter V-6 and 4.8-liter V-8 make do with a four-speed automatic.

That aside, if you're looking for the most fuel-efficient Silverado, the winner by far is the Silverado Hybrid. With EPA ratings of 20 mpg city, 23 highway, whether you get 4WD or not, the Silverado Hybrid is the green choice for full-size truck shoppers.

Conclusion

The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is more fuel-efficient than most full-size trucks, but it's still not very green.

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.
