2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Fuel Economy

5.0
Fuel Economy
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.
