The Chevrolet truck has a long and storied history that traces back to its first pickup in 1918, and the lineup has seen many changes since then. The three most notable are the introductions of the C/K models in 1962; their replacement in the 1999 model year; and the Silverado 1500 Hybrid in 2005.
For 2013, the Silverado 1500 Hybrid carries over with no changes from 2012. This pickup comes in only two trim levels: 1HY and 2HY. The 1HY acts as the base model and includes basic features like cloth seating, power windows and manually-adjustable seating. The 2HY makes a huge step up from its base model with leather seating, power-adjustable seats and a Bose premium audio system.
The 1HY is the base model in the Silverado 1500 Hybrid lineup and includes: four-wheel regenerative disc brakes to produce electricity while braking; a soft tonneau cover; chrome bumpers; 18-inch chromed aluminum wheels; an EZ-Lift tailgate; an AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM audio system with six speakers; dual-zone automatic climate control; and premium cloth seats.
The 2HY adds: bed-rail protectors; a hard-vinyl tonneau cover; auto-dimming side-view mirrors; a Bose premium audio system with AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3/SiriusXM capabilities, an 80 GB hard drive, seven speakers and a USB port; a navigation system; six-way power bucket seats; and a rearview camera.
