There are plenty of dissenters who believe that the full-size hybrids from General Motors don't deserve any sort of green recognition at all. We can understand their argument, especially considering that the fuel mileage of these monsters is less than half that of the hybrid by which all others are judged, the Prius. Still, lets make a few comparisons. According to, the Camry hybrid would save its driver $642 in gasoline per year compared to the standard Camry. By the same measurement, the Tahoe hybrid would save its driver $903 during those 12 months. Additionally, the Tahoe might be able to seat an entire large family (6+ people) that would need two vehicles if they were both sedans.

We are not going to suggest for even a second that the full-size SUVs from the General are the greenest cars on the road. Still, the annual fuel savings available to those who need them earns them a spot at number five on our list. Here's Number 4.
