We currently have a 2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid as well. The LX is a "build to last" vehicle and therefore holds such a strong residual (take a look at any used car search website). Consequently, the LX does not offer as many features as competitors do. I am a Lexus man for life and therefore I'd tell you to take the LX over anything else. Though I would probably take a current MY Range Rover Sport S/C or 15' Escalade over the LX if I only planned on keeping it before the warranty went up (due to styling, engine choices, and features of the two). As for the range, expect to see around 15mpg combined in the LX. The LX is a pig with an older gas-guzzling V8. Sorry I couldn't answer all of your questions. Good luck on your decision!
