This can be extended to last longer if you choose. You can use the benefits of your Ford extended warranty at any licensed Ford dealership or repair shop worldwide.Hybrid Trucks in the Military
The United States Army is in the process of introducing hybrid diesel vehicles into its military fleet. One such vehicle, designed by General Motors especially for the army and revealed in 2006, is a diesel-electric hybrid pickup truck with a body style based on GM’s Chevy Silverado. This hybrid military truck, belonging to the class of what the army considers to be “light tactical vehicles,” has a 6.6-liter V-8 engine with 210 horsepower and 545 pounds-foot of torque. This diesel engine is combined with a hybrid electric system that is estimated to reduce fuel consumption by anywhere from 25 – 40 percent, depending on terrain. In addition, the vehicle is equipped with a fuel cell auxiliary power unit-a component that will no doubt prove to be extremely useful to our armed forces in the field.
