The 2012 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid is now available for Bridgewater NJ Cadillac drivers at Crown Cadillac in Watchung. Cadillac’s innovative Escalade Hybrid is the world’s first hybrid full-size luxury SUV. It achieves an EPA-rated 20 miles per gallon in the city: a 33-percent improvement over the non-hybrid model. Bridgewater NJ Cadillac drivers who want to save at the pump, but also need the hauling power of an SUV, will find the perfect balance in the 2012 Escalade Hybrid.
The Escalade Hybrid is offered fully loaded and also in a Platinum Edition, with both available in RWD or 4WD. Each includes Escalade’s standard comfort and convenience features, including an eight-inch, touch screen navigation system that displays performance readouts of the hybrid system.
Escalade Hybrid’s patented two-mode hybrid system consists of an advanced, electrically variable transmission and 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System. These systems work in concert with the standard 6.0L V-8 Gen IV gasoline engine with Active Fuel Management and late-intake valve closing technology.
The key to Escalade’s two-mode hybrid system is that the hybrid system itself generates the electric power used to propel the vehicle. When the brakes are applied or the vehicle is coasting, the electric motors within the hybrid system create electricity that is stored in the 300-volt battery. This stored energy is then used to move the vehicle. This cycle repeats itself continually to increase fuel economy.
The Escalade Hybrid’s battery pack durability and reliability are maintained via optimized charge and discharge cycles, as well as a dedicated cooling system that draws air from the passenger compartment. The vehicle’s emission control system, hybrid drive line, and the energy storage system are warranted for eight years or 100,000 miles.
The Escalade Hybrid has Sirius Satellite Radio with a complementary 3-month subscription. Sirius has over 130 channels of music, sports, talk, news and weather. Only Sirius has the biggest names in entertainment like Martha Stewart, Howard Stern, Jamie Foxx, and the Blue Collar Comedy team.
