TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Escalade Hybrid sacrifices no performance, capability, or luxury, yet it uses a fraction of the fuel. Supremely spacious and stunning from some angles, the 2010 Lincoln MKT gets truly arresting with its EcoBoost turbo V-6. The 2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class is unlike any station wagon, minivan, or SUV currently on the market, and with the new BlueTEC model, it can haul six in supreme comfort at 24 mpg.
