Solid Ford Escape Hybrid (4WD)
By OC Bill on


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


Purchased about one week ago. Dealer was running "special" with $2,500 off sticker. Runs great -- got fully loaded with sunroof/navigation system/leather. Did not really need 4 wheel drive but keep in mind not a huge selection at most dealers (believe I had 8 to choose from -- many dealers in Orange County only have one or two). Mileage averaging about 28 mpg overall compared to claim of low-mid 30's. Quick acceleration and happy with tire selection by Ford - Continental - give a smooth ride.

Best Features

Like the drive and even though vehicle looks small compared to other SUV's -- very spacious and comfortable inside.

Worst Features

More realistic MPG information -- also need more selection at the dealers. Also, only on top end vehicles were there monochrome, decent colors -- most were two tone with the plastic trim a different color, that cheapens the look. More selection to choose from would be nice.
