What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Ford Escape

Ford Escape Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV 171-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Looking for something with good fuel mileage and a bit of hauling ability to replace full size truck. Easily doubled fuel mileage.
2011 4dr SUV 171-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed automatic AWD
For a small 4X4 SUV with an automatic tranzmission, the mileage is very good.
2010 4dr SUV 153-horsepower 2.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Highest mpg in small suv famiky
2009 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
25.7/M in city driving.
2009 4dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed automatic AWD
(V6 AWD Model) I've been satisfied with the fuel economy. Assuming the gauge is accurate that displays the average MPG, I get around 21.5 overall. On the highway I get in the mid 20's depending on driving conditions. On a long trip with just me, I've got around 29. Typically I'm driving at low elevation on relatively flat roads. On any given day, I'd put the over/under odds at 25.5 on the highway. One thing I did notice is when the weather gets cold (under 20 degrees F), the gas mileage starts to take a noticeable hit of about 2 MPG all around. I do add air to the tires when it's cold if necessary. This winter when it was around -16F, I'd get around 21 on the highway. On the plus side, I don't notice too much of a difference in MPG between 65 and 75 MPH which is nice. I've had a V8 Mustang where the MPG would drop pretty quickly once you got above 65/70. It cruises comfortably with good MPG @ 7.0
2009 4dr SUV 171-horsepower 2.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Am averaging more than 25 mpg commuting in town
2008 4dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
My Escape is a Hybrid, current MPG 34, I think that is fantastic. Car has consistently averaged 32+ MPG
2008 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic AWD
Great for a small SUV, much better than my old F150
2007 4dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Consistantly 30 mpg average fuel economy. Nice for an SUV.
2007 4dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid

work truck, after 5000km getting 8L/100km in mostly 50-60-80km/hr driving...can get 7 if very gentle.
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.
2013 4dr SUV turbocharged 240hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Do not look to buy an Escape if you are after stellar fuel economy, at least not the 2.0L EcoBoost. I'm averaging in the low to mid tenties in my car in a mix of about 60/40 suburban/highway driving. It does much better on the highway than in running errands, and there's a bigger gap between the city/suburban and highway mileage than I can recall experiencing with any of my other cars. It's my first turbocharged car as well: think there's a connection there?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
