Bought new Escape for my wife since we just had a baby girl. Sold my 2003 Ford Focus and 1996 V6 Mustang to get it. Gets great MPG for an suv 25mpg overall so far with only 500 miles on it. Shifts great. Ride is nice and high for only having 15 inch wheels. Love this car; makes me want to trade in my 06 Ranger and get a matching Escape. Great SUV love it.
2.3 liter engine, 4 speed up shifts early to higher gears saves gas, ride, MPG, acceleration.
Lighted cruise control, door lock, turn signals, and windshield wiper control. Stock radio stinks. Dome light too far back of driver.
