2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Our vehicle has so far performed as advertised. We've gotten acceptable MPG though it is very dependent on driver habits. In order to exclusively use the electric motor, you must gently accelerate from a stop. This of course is difficult if you find yourself in front of traffic. The quality, ride, and features are great.

Best Features

The electric motor...if not, it's a waste of money. The rear seats collapse nicely for a large cargo area.

Worst Features

Length/distance of battery/electric motor capability. I'd like it to go farther on a charge. Plug in capability. It'd be nice to have it parked in a garage and plug it in for a fully charged start in the morning. The instrument panel is pretty cheap looking.
