Hmm. Makes a lot of sense. Build a more efficient work truck for those who use work trucks. Go figger.
What is this shooting from the hip thing???? Do you even own a gun?
3mpg+ can be gained by just inflating the tires right and some aero stuff. I wouldn't even spend $2000+ to gain 3mpg, it's ludachris.
GM is more focused on fuel cells than hybrids. Maybe they should just stick to something they know.
I don't care it's a work truck. If it can't do it's job then it will not be bought. GM is not doing anything new. GM is too old fashined. They need to kick the geezers out and get some fresh blood in there.
