What SUV hybrids are coming out?
Over the next two years-2006 through 2007-several SUV hybrids will be released. Among those are the Saturn VUE SUV, the Chevy Equinox SUV, the Chevy Tahoe SUV, the Chevy Trailblazer SUV, the GMC Yukon SUV and the Honda Pilot SUV. Although no one is expecting the SUV hybrids to compare in mileage to the hybrid sedans, the fuel economy will be considerable. As an example compare the Ford Escape at an EPA rating of 20/25 MPG (city/highway) to the Ford Escape Hybrid at 36/31 MPG (city/highway). With the hybrid you could save several hundred dollars a year on fuel costs. And you'll be doing the environment a big favor!
