Top road trip vehicles: Cadillac Escalade Hybrid
Luggage space abounds in this vehicle, which can transport up to eight, but also has more reasonable fuel economy in the hybrid version. Trunk capacity starts at 16.9 cubic feet, growing to 108.9 cubic feet with second row seats stowed and third seat removed. Features include heated and cooled front seats, rearview cameras and towing capabilities, as well as satellite TV and DVD players, "all the conveniences to keep your kids occupied when you're finding your way down the road," says Jack Nerad with Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com. "It's a great car for a family."
