It's the first GM vehicle that combines an E85 ethanol-capable engine with the two-mode hybrid system.
The Denali XT's new 4.9-liter V-8 engine features fuel-injection and active fuel management. Paired with the 2 mode hybrid system and E85 ethanol capability, it delivers a 50 percent increase in fuel economy over similar small pickup trucks.
E85 Ethanol is a cleaner-burning renewable fuel, 85% ethanol and 15% unleaded gasoline, that can be used in the many Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFV) sold today in America. Ethanol is produced from a variety of sources including corn, wood and other cellulosic materials.
The Chicago Auto Show will run from Feb. 6-17, 2008.
