As long as it performs the same as a V8, then I would get one, they just haven't made one that does yet.

I would like to add that Porsche does have a hybrid race car in the lemans series right now so the technology is getting better with time. Just like CV transmissions were around sense the 80's but have only recently become efficient and popular. Technology will change how we power our vehicles whether you like it or not. Electric cars have been around sense cars were invented but our technology is finally catching up with gasoline engines. Just sayin

Well I'd have to say no because I need to hear roar of the V8, but the hemi's MDS (multiple displacement system) is a step in the right direction going from 8 to 4 cylinders when cruising in lower RPM and max power isn't needed.
I think that Cummins is the way to go though. especially the 6.7l with all of its emission control jargon and what not, plus all of the after market goodies and the amount of power you can make from the diesels is unreal.

I didn't bother with a hybrid when I bought a new car and I sure as hell wouldn't waste my time with a hybrid truck.

I doubt that the technology has come far enough yet. GM had a 'hybrid' pickup for a minute. As I recall it was a failure, as most of GMs hybrids have been to date. VW has a new hybrid coming out in the Touraeg (which weighs almost as much as my 1500) that looks promising, but I just can't imagine that a hybrid system will make that big of a difference. Just my two cents.

Nothing beats driving down the road with your windows open, spraying aerosol cans out the window, dumping used oil in the lakes, and getting 10MPG.

Can you guess my choice?

JK on all that bad stuff, minus the MPG.
