The Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is a luxury SUV that weighs nearly 6,000 pounds, yet it racks up fuel economy numbers in the neighborhood of 20 mpg in city driving. The secret is the vehicle's "two-mode" hybrid technology. As with its related siblings, the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and GMC Yukon Hybrid, the Escalade Hybrid has a 6.0-liter V8 that's coupled to a pair of 60-kilowatt motors packaged within the transmission.
Being a Cadillac, the Hybrid version is much more luxurious than the Chevy or GMC versions, with a higher-quality interior and nearly every feature as standard. However, none of these SUVs really make much sense. Maybe if you're a person who needs to occasionally carry seven people and/or tow a boat while wishing for 20-plus mpg fuel economy and a luxurious interior. That seems like a rare demographic, especially when you consider the Escalade Hybrid's hefty price. Most people would be better off with a more efficient diesel-powered SUV or a hybrid that's based on a more modern, refined SUV.

The eight-passenger Cadillac Escalade Hybrid debuted for the 2009 model year and has changed very little since. That first year it lacked the current Escalade's 6.0-liter V8 E85 (Ethanol blend) fuel capability and USB audio connection. More importantly, it achieved lower fuel economy because of a different rear axle ratio.
