Slideshow: 6 Cars You Won't Admit You Love

2 of 7

The Cadillac Escalade is the automotive equivalent of the KFC Double Down sandwich. It’s more power, more luxury and more bling than anyone has a right to expect, but man, that excess feels so good. The Escalade’s outsized styling has been a hip-hop favorite for years, so everyone becomes a few degrees cooler just by stepping inside the Escalade’s opulent interior. Of course, the Escalade’s fuel economy (14/18 mpg city/highway) is pretty dismal. But, for people who order the Double Down with grilled chicken, there’s the Escalade Hybrid. Just know that this green monster won’t save you much cash – it costs about $10,700 more than the gas-only model.
