The 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid New Car Review

Share |

GMC-Sierra-Hybrid Let’s face it, as much as we would like oversized vehicles to just go away, we really can’t do without them. But for all the heavy weights there is hope. The new hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) GMC Sierra 1500 full-size truck packs all the power and performance to get the job done with a little eco-friendly twist. The truck stocks a two-mode hybrid propulsion system, which includes two 60-kW electric traction motors packaged as components of GM's new electrically variable transmission (EVT). At low speed, the truck can move using one of the electric motors or a gas-fired 6.0-liter V8. At highway speed, the second mode works with all eight cylinders of the V8 firing when commanded, or with only four cylinders operating through AFM technology to conserve on fuel. Sierra the HEV can pull a trailer weighing up to 6,100 pounds.
