The Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon Hybrids off­er the same capabilities and seating as the Cadillac Escalade hybrid. However, with much lower price tags, it's not hard to see why 5,876 buyers went for the Tahoe and Yukon in 2008, compared to the 801 buyers who chose the Escalade Hybrid.

But the Tahoe and Yukon Hybrids aren't just pale imitations of the Escalade. The Tahoe Hybrid was named the 2008 Green Car of the Year by the Green Car Journal, giving it some green street-cred. Like the Escalade Hybrid, the Tahoe and Yukon Hybrids' size prevents them from getting great fuel economy, but for people who need to tow heavy loads or haul lots of people, the extra miles per gallon, not matter how small, is a big benefit.
