2007 4dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid

Great in city, good on highway, runs in electrical mode occasionally which is fun. For a 4WD non aerodynamic mini-truck the economy is stellar. see full Ford Escape review
Ford Escape Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr SUV turbocharged 178hp 1.6L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Slightly less fuel mileage than I would have expected from the 1.6 turbo. Currently averaging about 24 in mixed driving. And I am not a lead foot with this car. see full Ford Escape review
2012 4dr SUV 171-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Fuel economy suffers thanks to the need to downshift for even smaller hills and the vehicle's brick-like aerodynamic profile. EPA ratings are 20/28, real-world is closer to 24. see full Ford Escape review
2008 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Surprised by how bad the fuel economy is so far (but have only had a month)... less than 15 mpg for my driving, mostly back and forth to work, 1.5 miles in a small town... but I can live with it because I really love this car. see full Ford Escape review
2006 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic AWD
16-18 MPG in town, old V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee was not much worse. Should get more mileage out of a six. see full Ford Escape review
2006 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Knew it was not going to be great with V6. After several fillups averages around 19.4 mile per gal. see full Ford Escape review
2005 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic AWD
Perhaps the 6 speed automatics are better, but the 4 speeds just suck! Not good at all, in my humble opinion, for a vehicle this size. see full Ford Escape review
2002 4dr SUV 201-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic AWD
I averaged about 14 city and 17.5 on trips, which for a vehicle this size is terrible. see full Ford Escape review
