Patty Streeter,  at Ford Escape Hybrid The first SUV hybrid and the first American hybrid to hit showrooms. The Escape is the most affordable of the hybrid SUVs. Lexus RX 400h Hybrid SUV The luxury and speed of the Lexus SUV Hybrid appeals to the more affluent car buyer, who has been hesitant to give up one iota of comfort to go hybrid. Saturn Vue Hybrid The 2007 Saturn Vue will be available with an optional belt alternator starter (BAS) system. This adds up to a 10 percent improvement in fuel economy, for a few hundred dollars over the base price. Toyota Highlander Hybrid The Highlander is like a Prius on growth hormones: 270 horsepower 80.6 cubic feet of cargo space, and 28 miles to the gallon. Those are impressive numbers. Mercury Mariner Hybrid SUV The Mercury Mariner is an upscale derivative of the Ford Escape. Ford sped up the release of a hybrid version of the Mariner, but is only producing 2,000 units this year.
