The folks at Inside Line managed to extract a little bit of extra news from General Motors
at the debut of its new GMT900 pickups yesterday. Apparently the General plans to unveil hybrid
versions of both pickups by Fall of next year. The hybrid pickups will feature the same dual-mode hybrid drivetrain that's set to appear first in the Tahoe Hybrid
and be able to achieve a combined fuel economy
rating of 25 mpg while mated to a V8 producing 365 horsepower and 350 ft-lbs. of torque. The price, however, will be at least $3,000 more than their gas-powered counterparts.
