The new 2013 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid
Cadillac’s innovative Escalade Hybrid is the world’s first hybrid full-size luxury SUV. It achieves an EPA-rated 20 miles per gallon in the city – a 50-percent improvement in city fuel economy over the non-hybrid model. It also seats eight, with generous cargo room available with the third-row seat removed.
Escalade Hybrid is powered by an advanced, fuel-saving two-mode hybrid system and offers the same dramatic design, luxury and full-size capability that have made the Escalade an icon. Both are available in RWD and 4WD configurations. They deliver up to 5,800 pounds (2,631 kg) of usable towing capacity on RWD models and 5,600 pounds (2,540 kg) on 4WD models.
Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid delivers a dramatic improvement in fuel economy over non-hybrid models – 33-percent in city driving – with the spaciousness and capability customers seek in a full-size SUV. It offers seating for up to eight and a towing capacity of up to 6,200 pounds (2,812 kg) on 2WD models.
The Tahoe Hybrid’s improved fuel economy over gasoline-only models is due largely to GM’s s tate-of-the-art two-mode hybrid system, which helps 2WD Tahoe Hybrid models deliver an estimated 20 mpg in the city. That’s comparable to the city fuel economy of many smaller cars.
New for 2013 are three exterior colors: Champagne Silver Metallic, Concord Metallic (late availability) and Blue Ray Metallic (late availability).
