Hybrid Cars - The Future of 4x4 Pickup Trucks and SUVs

Pros and Cons of Owning Hybrid Cars, Trucks and SUVs


Can you drive an SUV or pickup truck guilt-free? You can if it's a Hybrid!

The idea with Hybrid vehicles is to get the most fuel economy out of a smaller engine. By combining top-notch fuel efficiencies and ultra-low tailpipe emissions, the end result is some of the cleanest and "greenest" vehicles we've ever seen. As a whole, Hybrids deliver big-engine performance with small-engine fuel economy. Yet they drive like (and are fueled the same way as) conventional vehicles.

In this day and age, the more you can do to protect the environment (and save a few bucks!) the better! Which may be why the latest and greatest gadget in the automotive industry is the all-new Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). But before you think you've just got to have one, check this out:
