Large SUV Hybrids Are Coming

This has been something that the big automakers of USA have expected to happen sooner or later. Fuel efficiency and large SUVs are two subjects that dont go hand in hand. That will soon change in the near future. With mid-size hybrid cars such as the Toyota Highlander, Lexus RX400H, Ford Escape and Saturn Vue, you can now add large SUV's such as the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon hybrid models. General Motors and Daimler Chrysler are two automakers that are leading the pack in innovative hybrid engine solutions using Two-Mode hybrid systems designed especially for larger sport utility vehicles. The Two-Mode hybrid technology for larger cars will be 25% more fuel efficient and will provide fuel economy of 20 or more miles per gallon. In the near future expect hybrid models such as the Cadillac Escalade, GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Durange and Chrysler Aspen.
