2005 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

So far so good. The Hybrid in and of itself isn't the hard thing to get used to, it's the fact that the vehicle never shifts! The CVT is an interesting device. Let's hope it works better in Fords than it has in other vehicles. The seats are comfortable and well positioned. Ford has NOT loaded this vehicle with extras, that's for sure, but as a whole this vehicle is reasonably quite, handles well, brakes very well, and is easier on the gas than the regular Escape. Ford should convert everything they build to this technology. That would put an American company out front for a change and let the others play catch up.

Favorite Features

CVT, Atkinson cycle engine.

Suggested Improvements

Larger gauges, AWD not just 4WD, better sound system. Entry level system is very basic and sounds like it too.
