Default Cadilac escalade hybrid

If you got $75,000 for a Cady Ecalade... why would you care if it gets 20 mpg???

I work in a design studio for the big 3 or whatever you would like to call them now. It is marketed as "guilt free luxury".

It would be intresting to me to find out where the design for the 68 corvette came from. That is one sexy car!

"Hybrid Escalade"

It only exists to keep the PC police happy.


All this "hybrid" and "green" crap goes out the window when the price of fuel is down.

Toyota can't give away their Prius right now. Back when fuel was $4/gallon, some chumps were in there paying $2K over sticker!

But yet those same buyers were insisting they bought them because they were "green".

Well, where are all of the so-called "green" buyers at now, when fuel is less than $2/gallon??? ;?

I hear crickets...

the escalade/denali is nothing like a tahoe/yukon obviously never driven or traveled in one.......just less time sitting a fking gas station putting a 100 dollars in fuel and being green at the same time...you should see the new platinum escalde it looks just like a ls base tahoe.....hahaha not...

"My Passat TDI with 230Kmi does 45Mpg in the CITY!!!!!"

The teeny bopper next door has a 97 Ford Escort that gets 34mpgs in the city. And that is not a diesel. What is your point?

I do not think either would fetch 75k+

Anyone whose driven a Escalade/Denali knows that's not the case. Different engine, suspension, seating, exterior trim, interior trim and they ride smoother than just about any truck/SUV made. Tahoes are very nice trucks but the Denali & Escalade really take it above and beyond.

Also not worth $75,000.........

I work for Audi and all I can say is "I told you so". The big 3 deserve everything they get. If they fail then so be it!!!! All they have been doing is putting out piles of garbage for years. They missed the hybrid mark by about 5-8 years and thats there fault. German cars are built better, safer, and look better.....Hell I even own a 05 Ram 1500 hemi with 26k on the clock (for the boat) and it just sits in the driveway. The damn thing dents when you touch it and the door blades paint is peeling off. (Waxed twice a year). How do you explain that. AMERICAN made GARBAGE.Go take your 75k and see what kinda of German car you can get, then thank me later.....end rant!!!!!

I like the Escalade and I'm considering buying one, the one that looks like the Chevy Avalanche. No hybrid for me, thanks.

I just paid my truck off so now I am debating getting into a new truck. There is nothing wrong with mine, its a 2003 Chevy 1500 in great condition. Other than oil changes its never had a wrench touch it.

I have always liked the Escalade but I was thinking of going in the other direction and getting a big Ford diesel dually.

I'm going to wait about 6-8 months and see where the American auto makers end up. Plus I want to have no payments for a while.

Wow, the Platinum edition, whatever that is, is 88K msrp!! Invoice is only 82K. Of course I think Suburbans are pushing 60K now loaded, so I guess that is about right.

Wonder if the new management approves of these as the 'right' cars for America?

This makes about as much sense as Dunkin Donuts selling diet Coke to fat slobs.

NoVacanSea. pound sand!!!!

"All they have been doing is putting out piles of garbage for years."

You are a moron. Audi makes some nice products but do not make the mistake and and undercut what Cadillac has to offer. The CTS and Escalade are at or near class leading just look at their sales track since the debut of the CTS early this decade. The sales growth compared to any other luxury maker on the planet makes the competition shudder.
