2006 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
A good, economical SUV to drive and it serves most purposes. Although not a very powerful engine (4 cylinder) it easily makes up for it in fuel economy. Because of its size, it is nimble and can squeeze in spots better than your average SUV yet still is able to hold/transport almost the same amount as bigger SUVs without giving up a lot of space. The base XLS model is no frills but has options that you would not expect. A good value over all and I am quite satisfied.
Voluminous room with rear seats folded down. 4WD.
Some minor extra amenities found in other small SUVs.
