When the next generation of full size General Motors trucks and SUVs debut for the 2014 model year, they promise to bring along solid strength and modern-day technology. While they will surely carry the same philosophy that has made their predecessors so popular, they will not bring with them hybrid drivetrains. So when the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado launches, buyers won’t be able to flaunt their overly “Green” badge.
According to Autoblog, GM made the decision to cut the program due to current hybrid truck sales. The two-mode system only garnished minor fuel mileage gains that could be beaten by Ford’s non-electric assisted EcoBoost gasoline engine. While there had been plans to update the current vehicle’s system with lighter weight batteries, those have essentially be tossed away. This move should affect all the next generation full size trucks and SUVs.
