Keeping in mind a lighter, more aerodynamic LS600hL gets 20/22, 20/20 is very impressive. Regular Yukons 5.3s get 14/20 for 2WD and 14/19 4WD.

That's pretty sweet... If it weren't too big I'd consider that as a Venture replacement... a Lambda hybrid would be a good idea, are you listening, MAXIMUM-Bob??

A Lambda hybrid has me thinking. Will they mate it to the 3.6 or would they use the V8 that they will be getting in the near future? Will that V8 have AFM? What engine is that V8? Maybe I should just wait instead of throwing out a bunch of questions.

ask a pilot owner, and if they are truthful, they will tell you the 15 is more common than the other.

That will be a butt kicker.

Then how long before a dual-mode CAR? Perhaps the Volt will beat it to market?! :o

The sooner the better. Right now GM NA doesn't have anything for greenies. The Toyota-powered Vibe is their most efficient car.

What about the Aura and Vue greenlines? A friend of mine also has a 07 Silverado hybrid that he drives. These are milder hybrids of course, but they may not be in the realm of the gas mileage you talk of that the Vibe gets, they have to quiet some of the greenies rants against GM.
