2013 Ford Escape SEL 4dr SUV AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I have a 2.0 SEL AWD Escape bought last May. I've put on 5000 miles so far and I'm really pleased with it for many reasons.
First of all, it's is really well made. The interior is high quality and really comfortable (I'm 6'2"... not all cars work for me). I liked the build quality much more than the CX-5.
It's a blast to drive, it puts a grin on my face every day. It tracks true and is very sure on all sorts of conditions.
I hardly can wait to try it in the snow!
My gas milage averages around high 26mpg in mixed driving and 29 highway.
With 2 kayaks this drops way down to 23-24mpg.
comfort of seats, flat folding rear seats, and overall looks.
The console is really deep, maybe offer some type of organizer for it rather than having a bottomless pit.
