The 2.3L had enough performance and got better mileage than the V6. At 65mph on cruise control, it can get 29 to 30mpg fully loaded with 4 people & luggage. see full Ford Escape review

V6 has combination of good power and fuel economy for an AWD SUV, overall fuel mileage has averaged 20.7 mpg over 60,000 miles with A/C or defroster on the majority of the time see full Ford Escape review
2006 4dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT AWD
I was looking for better mileage. I got 33+ no problem. The car taught me how to drive more efficiently. I am getting 34-35+ in the summer months now. My son has learned to drive the same way by starting with the Hybrid. 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
