More and more hybrid and diesel pick-up trucks are entering the market with plans to improve the technology in coming years. The Chevy Silverado, the GMC Sierra and the Dodge Ram all have hybrids as of 2009. The Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 have E85 flexible fuel trucks. And a lot of work is being put into creating electric pick-ups. The Mahindra Clean Diesel pickup truck is due out this year but people have to get on a list to get the truck (I think because of a lack of dealers for this Indian-made car).
These trucks are still getting terrible mileage. The hybrids reportedly get 21 mpg (although the estimates are always higher than the reality) and the flexible fuel vehicles get 11-13 mpg. And the hybrids start close to $40,000.
