Do You Drive One Of The Most Fuel Efficient Trucks Of 2010?

June 2nd, 2010 by

I was so excited when Edmunds.com released their latest top 10 list! Why? Because a lot of GM trucks made the top 10 list of the most fuel efficient trucks of 2010!

Pickups are incredibly popular in this country, and their appeal stems largely from the utility that they offer. In the past, this utility has been burdened with abysmal fuel economy, but these days, there are choices available that won’t cause you to wince too much when you pull up to the pump.

Here are a few of the 10 most fuel-efficient pickups on the market. Our rankings were arrived at using the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) miles-per-gallon ratings for city and highway travel. Specifically, we tapped the EPA’s combined fuel-economy formula: 55 percent of city mpg rating plus 45 percent of highway mpg rating. Each pick’s fuel-efficiency rating is expressed in mpg as a city/highway ratio.

3rd Place ties go to:

2010 GMC Canyon — 18 city/25 highway and 21 combined (tie)
2010 Chevrolet Colorado — 18 city/25 highway and 21 combined (tie)
2010 GMC Sierra 1500 Hybrid — 21 city/22 highway and 21 combined (tie)
2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Hybrid — 21 city/22 highway and 21 combined (tie)

4th Place ties go to:

2010 GMC Sierra 1500 — 15 city/22 highway and 18 combined (tie)
2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — 15 city/22 highway and 18 combined (tie)

This is pretty great! Do you own one of these trucks yet? Do you just love it?
