Expert Quotes:

14 mpg city, 18 highway (2WD); 13/18 (4WD); 13/18 (EXT AWD)
U.S. EPA





While the Cadillac Escalade became the vehicle to be seen in, a number of years ago, it also became an anti-green symbol of sorts. But what a number of those haters aren't aware of is that the 2012 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid gets an EPA-rated 20 mpg city, 23 highway--better than many much smaller vehicles. And to add just a bit of irony (to whose expense, we're not quite sure), there's really not much badging on the Hybrid to tell it as that.

That said, there are still plenty of very thirsty Escalades; most of the lineup gets eyebrow-raising EPA ratings of just 13 or 14 mpg city and 18 mpg on the highway.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid greens the 'anti-green' Escalade image and makes a lot of sense--even if bystanders won't know the difference.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
