Used 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid Values


The 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is an attempt to blend the upscale luxury SUV world with the current demand for more fuel efficient cars. The Escalade Hybrid utilizes GM's fuel-saving 2-mode Hybrid system which helps the Escalade earn a 45% improvement in fuel economy in city driving over the traditional Cadillac Escalade. The 6.0L V8 works in conjunction with the electrically variable transmission and 300V nickel-metal hydride energy storage system (ESS). The hybrid system allows the Escalade to drive at low speeds on electricity alone in addition to allowing the V8 to run on a more economical 4-cyl mode when necessary. The 2009 Escalade Hybrid is available in 2WD and 4WD configurations. All of the Escalade's standard comfort and convenience features are included, such as an eight-inch touch screen nav-system that also displays readouts of the 2-mode Hybrid system. Some will balk at the notion of a hybrid that "only" gets 20 mpg, but how many hybrids can tow a boat while its occupants ride in style and comfort? Not even the uber-green car, the Toyota Prius, can make a claim like that.
