Video: Meet the 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid and the GMC Yukon Hybrid were off to a slow start but with a $4,000 cash back incentive sales have been picking up. No idea if GM will offer the same incentives on the upcoming 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, but we wouldn’t doubt it since pricing may be a higher than the $50,000 MSRP of the Tahoe and Yukon Hybrid.

Power comes from a 6.0 liter V8 Gen IV engine that is mated to a 2-mode Hybrid system that GM says improves city fuel-economy by 50 percent. Available later this summer, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid will be available in 2WD and 4WD configurations. The 2WD has a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds while the 4WD has a towing capacity of 5,700 pounds.

Check out this video of John Howell, Cadillac’s Director of Global Products, giving us a walk-around the new Cadillac Escalade Hybrid.
