2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I picked up my 2007 hybrid last week and love it. It's a little more noisy that my Mercedes ML320 was but a lot quieter than our Nissan Xterra. I got $500 off the sticker which is rare given the demand for these. The only thing I don't like is the lack of a satellite radio option on the high-end navigation/radio system. Oh well. I think there will be a lot of other SUV hybrids soon so this car is to hold me a few years until something I like comes out. I wasn't going to shell out $60K for the Lexus hybrid.
This is a head-turner, which surprised me. I thought it would fly under the radar but everyone seems to notice it in traffic.
Add satellite radio capability and increase the display screen size.
