GREEN | 4 out of 10
14 mpg city, 18 highway (2WD); 13/18 (4WD); 13/18 (EXT AWD)
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.
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.
