Low price for features included compared to other CUVs in this segment
20094dr SUV 240-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed automatic AWD
My price paid was much smaller than Toyota and Honda similar models I researched.
20084dr SUV 153-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
The price was within budget
20084dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic AWD
Compared to Honda, Toyota and GM, much more "bang for the buck"!
Price of the Ford Escape: Cons
20084dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid
Hybrid was quite a premium over the V6.
20074dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid
It is not economical when comparing standard engine vs. hybrid engine. You have to do it because you want a hybrid for the environment. However, it is 10K cheeper than Toyota Highlander Hybrid, but it is a lighter car too. Tow capacity is 1000 vs 3000.
20064dr SUV 133-horsepower 2.3L I4 Hybrid
As a hybrid, expect to pay a premium price.

Lots of car for the money.
20054dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Great value. Bad for Ford, great for us.
20044dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
With the incentives, buying this SUV felt like I was getting a huge bargain. By my 5th year of ownership, I felt like I got ripped off based on the cost to maintain this vehicle.
Price of the Ford Explorer: Cons
20024dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Too expensive in the market compared to more reliable trucks available like Honda Pilots.
