Love My Escape Hybrid
By Richard Devitt on


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


We needed the all wheel drive feature since we live in the Sierra Nevada mountains where the roads are rough and the weather unpredictable. Since AWD is considered a 'premium feature' the dealer told us virtually all AWD models were factory built with the full premium package. So we ended up with a car/truck that had a lot more 'luxuries' than we wanted. Though not necessary, they make life more pleasant. As a result of the AWD, and our rough environment, we don't get anywhere near the stated mileage, but that's ok. We get about 24 hwy and 27 city mpg. It's a great car excellently put together. The biggest pleasures are the onboard NAV and the continuous acceleration transmission.

Best Features

NAV, Continuously variable transmission, electrical outlets, many sensors (eg, low tire pressure), excellent acceleration, many instrument panel display options, good handling. I am not a fan of American engineering but every detail of this vehicle is beautifully designed right down to the cupholders.

Worst Features

Improve the mileage. Otherwise it has everything you could want and more.
