The Chevy Silverado Hybrid is no more, but V-8 models are impressively frugal for their ability and the new V-6 might be a fuel economy leader.

Expert Quotes:

5.3-liter V-8 models: 16 mpg city, 23 highway (rear-wheel drive) 16/22 mpg (4WD)

V-6 models: 18 mpg city, 24 highway (rear-wheel drive) 17/22 mpg (4WD)

6.2-liter V-8 models: 15 mpg city, 21 highway (rear-wheel drive) 14/20 mpg highway (4WD)

Thanks to an all-new lineup of engines in the 2014 Silverado, these trucks are expected to post significantly better mileage, across the line, compared to 2013.

V-8 models get EPA ratings of 16 mpg city, 23 highway with rear-wheel drive, or 16/22 with 4WD. Although if you step up to the towing-oriented 6.2-liter V-8, your mileage drops to 14 mpg city, 20 highway if you get 4WD (or 15/21 otherwise). 

V-6 models earn 18 mpg city  and 24 on the highway with rear-wheel drive; add 4WD and it drops to 17/22 mpg.

It's likely that these numbers will be quite reproducible in real-world driving as well. On a 42-mile loop of hilly two-lane country roads, we averaged 23 mpg in a V-6—when driven normally, and a bit briskly.


The Chevy Silverado Hybrid is no more, but V-8 models are impressively frugal for their ability and the new V-6 might be a fuel economy leader.

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.
