Looking for something with good fuel mileage and a bit of hauling ability to replace full size truck. Easily doubled fuel mileage. see full Ford Escape review

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
