  • It’s no surprise that the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid shares the same hybrid system found in the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC’s Yukon hybrid SUVs since all are built on the same platform and feature the same drivetrain. The hybrid hardware combines a modified 6.0-liter 332 horsepower V8 gasoline engine, a 300-volt nickel-metal hydride battery pack and an electrically variable transmission (EVT). The transmission is made up of two 60-kilowatt (80 horsepower) electric motors, three planetary gearsets and four fixed gears that use the same space as GM’s six-speed automatic transmission. Essentially the EVT has two drive modes – hence the name “two-mode hybrid.”

    During low-speed, low-impact driving, the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid powertrain works just like other hybrids; it stops the V8 engine whenever possible so that it may draw power from one or both of the electric motors. With a deft foot on the go pedal, the big SUV can travel under electric power for around two miles at up to 35 mph.

First things that come to mind when thinking about largest SUV’s are: “How to park one and what are their fuel economy ratings?” Cadillac Escalade is one such vehicle which drags almost 19 feet of aluminum and steel behind it. However, 2016 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid will be offered anew after hybrid model’s previous discontinuation in 2013, and with next-gen features, should offer better figures in fuel efficiency department.
