GMC Yukon Hybrid



Of course it is the same powertrain as the Chevy version.
But in an even more luxurious package.
Even Cadillac will get their own for the Escalade.

These big GM SUVs have grown on me. Even the new Escalade.
So I guess if they do get around 20mpg in the city, even 18, it isn't so bad. Pretty amazing really.

Many much smaller cars just get around 20 in the city.

I still think that it's pretty lousy to drive something that big with or without a hybrid.

I can just hear SUV owners now: "It may be a land barge, but it's a hybrid." Most SUV drivers don't actually need these tanks, but this should make them feel better about owning one. Poor dears.

I'm glad to see that on certain vehicles the auto shifter is column-mounted. It's a waste of real estate to stick it on the floor on a car like this, for example. Funny, though, that GM kept the clunky console instead of creating another seating position and floor space.

As much as I disliked the old "oval" Taurus, they had a clever seat/console/armrest combination that could function as them all. At least make these things optional. Toyota's Avalon used to but quit. Sometimes, three couples like to ride to dinner together in a sedan instead of lugging around an SUV for that rare occasion.

I think the center front seat is more of a value/personal preference thing.

I always found it weird in my grandma's '85 DeVille...

They made base Intrepids with that option, but any further up the options ladder, they were 5 seaters only....

Hence the case for a choice in seating options.

What's weird for you might not be so unusual for others.

I'd still like to know why they dropped the diesel option in these several years ago and have yet to bring it back. I've driven in diesel Suburbans and gotten nearly 20 in town, over on the highway.

For that matter, I drove a Chevy van based bus for my job for a while, and it had the diesel. 18 in town with a full load, and that thing was of course lugging much more weight.

It seems to me they could have offered such while developing this.

Oh, and I'd also like to know why they didn't go with the plenty-powerful smaller V-8 in this hybrid.
