Manufacturers typically offer hybrid versions of vehicles loaded with features to help make up for the hybrid price markup. That same strategy holds true for the 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate that this lux SUV is loaded to the brim with high-end features.

The Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is available in just one trim, but "an extensive array of standard equipment is included," notes Edmunds reviewers. Among the features shared by all Cadillac Escalade Hybrids are "leather upholstery, heated and cooled power-adjustable front seats...tri-zone automatic climate control, a navigation system with real-time traffic," and "Bluetooth connectivity." J.D. Power reviewers add that the Hybrid Escalade comes with full power accessories and a "Bose AM/FM radio with 6-disc CD changer" that also plays the standard "XM satellite radio with one-year subscription." Car and Driver states the obvious, pointing out there is "lots of luxury" to be found on the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, but all these standard features lead Cars.com to ask, "is the [Hybrid Escalade] too much?"

For those who answer no to that question, GM offers a few options for the 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid. MyRide.com reviewers point out that "just about anything you can get on the regular Escalade is available on its gas/battery-powered brother," including "High Intensity Discharge headlamps, and a power-assisted rear liftgate that opens and closes with the touch of a button." However, Edmunds warns that "options drive up [the] price steeply," but for those considering spending over $70,000 on a 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, a couple grand more might not be a cause for concern.

Conclusion

Hybrid or not, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is still a Cadillac and accordingly comes standard with a whole host of high-tech features.

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.
