2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The surprise is how nimble footed and energetic the Ford Escape is. I considered the import name brands but canvassed coworkers and found a lot of the engineers at the lab had opted for the Escape so I took it for a test drive. The model I got comes loaded and I have no regrets!
For my model, the fog lights, six CD changer, and moon roof are standard, as are leather seats.
Choice of colors is a bit limited. I would have liked a pearlized white.
