Toyota dominates new hybrid vehicle ranking

It was just about this time last year when some drove their Toyota Prius hybrid into my aging Volkswagen Jetta, prompting a "totalled" declaration from my insurance company and a new car search for me.Sadly, my options in the hybrid category were miniscule compared to what's available today.

It was just about this time last year when some drove their Toyota Prius hybrid into my aging Volkswagen Jetta, prompting a "totalled" declaration from my insurance company and a new car search for me.

Sadly, my options in the hybrid category were miniscule compared to what's available today. I settled on a traditional engine with a decent fuel-economy rating, so it will be some time before I can actually invest in my own hybrid. Flash forward to December 2007. There's a whole lot more information available for those of you shopping for a new car.

Since I can't go out and test drive all these new vehicles myself, if you're hybrid-inclined, here's a new ranking from U.S. News & World Report. As you can read, Toyota still dominates the rankings, but Ford could have a winner with its Escape Hybrid suburban utility vehicle.
