Fun, Reliable, Versatile, Great on Gas
By Geoff on
2001 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. Excellent sound system, huge sunroof, very versatile. Great on gas for an SUV with 4x4 and V6 engine. On a long trip with the A/C on I averaged 24-25MPG! With the A/C I got 28MPG! The engine is very powerful making passing or merging effortless. Handles great in the snow. Never have I felt out of control, all handling is predictable. Very fun to drive! You will not regret purchasing an Escape!
More powerful heating and cooling for climate control system. Adjustable headrests, I am 6' 2" and the seat only comes up to my neck. This issue was resolved in newer models.
