The 2011 Cadillac Escalade is, in many respects, has become a sort of anti-green icon, a symbol of excess and wasteful new wealth some would argue. There's no reason to say much more here—other than point to the Escalade's eyebrow-raising EPA ratings of just 13 or 14 mpg city and 18 mpg on the highway.

So it's a little ironic that, if you don't want to guzzle nearly as much, there's an option: the 2011 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, which gets an EPA-rated 20 mpg city, 23 highway and is bound to give card-carrying Union of Concerned Scientists members a sigh of relief. While the Escalade Hybrid has been a very low-volume vehicle thus far, its very existence was enough for us to bump the Escalade's Green Rating up a couple of notches for that model.
