Interior places radio and climate controls high on the dashboard, just out of easy reach
ConsumerGuide

In a pickup market typically defined by overly brash or over-styled vehicles, the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado arrives with a pleasantly understated exterior that has aged well since it first appeared in 2007. While the Chevrolet Silverado pickup line is available in a seemingly limitless number of configurations, Car and Driver says that "the Silverado Hybrid will be available only in crew-cab body style in the Pure Pickup trim level." Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate approval of the exterior styling of the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid, which doesn't appear drastically different from its conventionally powered brethren. The Detroit News points out that the "strong front end with big grille shows off Silverado's power without hindering its capabilities," while J.D. Power reviewers note that, "to reduce drag, it will have a slightly deeper front air dam and a three-segment hard tonneau cover." Unlike with most hybrids, which feature rather unexciting styling that certainly wouldn't be at home on a construction site, The Detroit News promises that the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid's "imposing dual port grille and giant gold bow tie on a highway will scare a Toyota Prius into a ditch."

The interior of the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid is as appealing as the exterior, with an upscale feel and intelligent layout, although reviewers aren't strongly opinionated about the styling itself. ConsumerGuide reviewers gripe a bit about the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid's instrument-panel design, which "places radio and climate controls high on the dashboard, just out of easy reach," though this is one of the only complaints that reviewers mention with the interior.

Conclusion

If you're looking for an eco-friendly pickup, the well-styled 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid is one of the only options around.

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.
