I had a 2005 Escape 4 cylinder and wasn't as satisfied. The 2007 6 cylinder is a much smoother ride and quieter engine. I also like the darker tint on the windows and the 6 CD sound system. So far, I am very happy with my vehicle and I am still excited about the service that I received at my dealership. There doesn't seem to be as much brake dust build up.
The 6 cylinder engine performance, sound system, high gloss shine, and sun roof. The larger alloy wheels are easier to clean.
The inside door storage slots/pockets could be larger. The gas tank door should be lockable/popable from inside the car and should not be an extra cost.
