Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid

Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid

Even if electric hippie-heaven futuro cars aren't your style, you should still consider picking up a hybrid during your next new-car shopping trip. The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid (starting at $50,490) is the world's first two-mode hybrid SUV. (A GMC Yukon Hybrid is also available.) Offering up to 50% better city fuel economy over the non-hybrid Tahoe, the eco-friendly version has an estimated MPG of 21 city/22 highway for the 2WD model, and 20 city/20 highway for the 4WD model. Both pack in a Vortec 6.0L V8 engine with Active Fuel Management technology, which automatically shifts from 8 to 4 cylinders when less power is needed.

  • Ford Flex

    We're not really sure if we like the styling of the new Ford Flex, but it's definitely better than driving a minivan — which is exactly what it replaces. Joining the Edge and Taurus X in Ford's new crossover lineup, the Flex ($TBA; Summer 2008) is aimed at those who need the room and convenience of a family vehicle but can't stomach a minivan and don't need the off-road and gas-sucking features of an SUV. Along with a fuel-efficient 3.5-liter V-6 engine and 7-passenger seating, the Flex offers a ton of cool features — an interior refrigerator, second-row footrests, an in-car communications and entertainment system, capless fueling, a 2,300-song personal juke box, programmable ambient interior lighting, rear back-up camera, and a Multi-Panel Vista Roof.

  • Ghostbusters Ecto 1

    We've seen a lot of expensive movie memorabilia before, but nothing as cool as this. The Ghostbusters Ecto 1 ($150,000) is the 1959 Cadillac that the 'Busters drove in the original film. As fate would have it, that isn't the only movie the car has made an appearance in — it was also featured in In the Heat of the Night, starring Sidney Poitier. Sure, it's $150K, but it's also one of the most unique and memorable cars in movie history. [via]
