First hybrid SUV

Well the first ever hybrid suv is on its way, in the shape of the 2005 Ford Escape. According to the Ford website they will begin manufacturing them this summer and will set a target of 35-40 mpg for the 2wd versions, with the 4wd getting slightly lower numbers. I would like for my next vehicle to be hybrid, and since I will always want something with enough space for the whole family, plenty of cargo room for camping trips, and 4wd, it will probably be an suv. The escape is too small for me, and not very powerful. Hopefully by the time my durango is worn out they will have some cool hybrid suvs. I dont plan on that happening for another 5 or 6 years atleast so I would think that they will.
