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

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
