2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

Cadillac Escalade Hybrid
for 2009 is no different from the earlier versions and does not include any surprises. It is just a mix of the Chevy Tahoe and Yukon hybrid suvs. The hybrid version of Escalade 2009 has nothing to boast as unique in styling except the hybrid badge over it. Escalade is a large luxury SUV.

The technology is not different from the GMs patented two mode hybrid. The hybrid version retains all the qualities of non-hybrid Escalade in design and aesthetic. The Cadillac signature is clearly visible. The front grills and interiors are a pleasure to be in.

Usual hybrid technologies like EVT and regenerative breaking is also embedded into the system. Breaking is not entirely regenerative. Escalade balances between the regenerative and hydraulic breaking system to provide the best driving(breaking) experience. Auto Stop mode is included with the Gasoline engine. It automatically changes mode of fueling according to city or highway driving. Active Fuel Management™ and sequential fuel injection technologies power the fuel injection of 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid.
