MPG not as advertised
By sonni on
2013 Ford Escape Titanium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Leased the top of the line AWD in July. I reside in Staten Island NY and drive a combo of local and highway.
The vehicle is really nice. All the bells and whistles, comfrtable, great sound system, etc. However, the advertised MPG has not materialized to date, (the manager of my deaership said the eco-boost kicks in at around 5,000 miles). Furthermore, I consider myself to have a very light foot.
So to keep it simple, its a great mid sized SUV and I would recomend it, its a quality vehicle. But if you're buying it because of the high MPG, don't.
According to the car's own instrament panel, I'm getting a combined 17 mpg now. Much less than I expected. Range on full tank is only 270 miles.
