All the power and luxury with none of the guilt. To boost the Escalade’s appeal among green-minded drivers, GM shrewdly introduced this luxury hybrid, which gives big SUV lovers all the size they want and better mileage. (There’s even a gauge in the dashboard that shows you how fuel efficient your driving is.) The Platinum is loaded with cool ﬁxings, from a rear-seat touch screen–controlled DVD player and air conditioned seats to headrest TV screens and retractable running boards. And, since the Escalade is a GM vehicle, it comes standard with OnStar.
