Escalade: A bling, bling hybrid for Hollywood
Cadillac is ready to roll out GM's latest hybrid, the Escalade hybrid. With a starting price of $71,685, it's hard to get too excited about GM's latest dual mode hybrid vehicle. While the combined fuel economy of the Escalade hybrid is great for such a huge vehicle, 21 mpg certainly isn't the kind of fuel economy that America needs a lot more of on the road. Of course, that shouldn't be a worry at almost $72,000.
Still, I see a lot of Escalades on Southern California streets, so converting these drivers into hybrid drivers would be a good thing. Plus, I think everyone in the NFL drives at least one Escalade, so now the NFL will have a new tool to 'clean up' its image. And, I'm dying to see this hybrid in some hardcore rap video. Green bling, baby! Peace!
