Expert Quotes:

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





The Cadillac Escalade, a few years ago, became quite the polarizing vehicle. At one end were those who wanted to be seen in something bold and blingy; and at the other end were those who saw it as a sort of anti-green symbol.

But that latter group might have thought differently about it if they knew about the 2013 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid; it gets an EPA-rated 20 mpg city, 23 highway--better than many much smaller vehicles. The down side is that you get very little overt badging to tell others that you're in the less-thirsty version.

And beware, the rest of the Escalade is chronically parched; it gets eyebrow-raising EPA ratings of just 13 or 14 mpg city and 18 mpg on the highway; in our own real-world drives in previous model years, we haven't been able to do any better than that.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is a surprisingly green SUV--although bystanders still might see it as a thirsty beast.

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.
