2013 Ford Escape Titanium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
My wife and I looked at many vehicles including the Explorer Sport, all new Forester, Audi Q5 etc... Price range was high 30's to low 40's. The Audi Q5 was our second choice and Forester was third because of the transmission. We eneded up selling our 2008 loaded Ford Focus having 72K for 9000. So far less 1000 miles averaging 22.3mpg. We made the decision for the loaded up Escape because of the style and technology plus needing gas mpg. No issue so far and we both love it!
Nice ride, feels sturdy, well build.
Could use a extra or larger cup holder somewhere in the center console.
