2012 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Review
Leased the 4-cyl Escape and took a 1500 mile trip. The four cylinder is adequate. Passing power on the highway was pretty good. The only problem would be long steep grades. The 6 speed auto shifted smoothly. It didn't hesitate to downshift when needed. The engine only turns over 1700 RPM at 60 MPH. The first leg of the trip was mostly interstate with about 100 miles of Ozark hills and twisties at the end. I have an easy foot and averaged 30MPG going and 28MPG returning against a 20mph head wind, lightly loaded. This is a great around town vehicle. I wouldn't want to take on the Rockies, though.
Favorite Features
Smooth auto. Steering has excellent feel. Very comfortable seats. easy folding rear seats for a perfectly flat cargo area. Road noise well controlled. Good heating and A/C controls. Good side mirrors and good outward visibility in all directions. Easy to enter and exit.
Suggested Improvements
Button to scroll through information center awkward to reach. The cruise doesn't indicate it is on until you hit the set button. The fuel door doesn't lock, and I don't like the capless fuel filler tube.
