The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Drivers of the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid will burn hundreds fewer gallons of gas a year than drivers of standard V-8 trucks. The Ford F-150 is a solid truck that is due for its 2009 model makeover, but it’s good enough that it may be all the truck you need or want.
