2009 Hybrid Cadillac Escalade

Car and Driver has a nice write up on the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid. Expected to be released as a 2009 model in April or May of 2008, GM showed off the working prototype at the "Ten" event in Hollywood. Jennifer Hudson strolled down the runway with the latest hybrid.

The Escalade Hybrid is expected to be outfitted with GM's new dual mode hybrid engine. It will come with a 6.0-Liter V-8 coupled to two electric motors. This is a full hybrid, capable of running on electric mode at low speeds. There will also be a cylinder deactivation for better fuel economy.

The two-mode hybrid system is supposed to improve the Tahoe hybrids fuel efficiency by 25% when it comes out next year, so we should probably expect the same from the Escalade hybrid.

The writer notes that "some changes will be made to the grille and front bumper to create a distinction between the hybrid."

You know, it's actually very easy to get a link from my site. Dressing up a comment and then linking to an auto parts supply store is not the way to do it.
