Love the 2007 Design vs 2008 Design
By KarlS on


2007 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We looked at the 2008 sneak-peek pics and the LA auto show write-ups & pics, but we decided we liked the 2007 interior/exterior design best because it looks less truck-like than the new designs. My wife's the primary driver, and she loves this vehicle. In the first 500 miles, neither of us have any buyer's remorse.

Best Features

Fuel economy; AWD; extremely smooth transitions between electric and engine propulsions; interior/exterior design; good "way-back" storage/capacity behind 2nd seats; high fun-to-drive quotient; comfortable front seats; familiar interior feel/layout (similar to our 2004 Expedition).

Worst Features

Stability control system; needs external air temp display ("D'Oh!"); more noise dampening in the passenger compartment (when gas engine is engaged); long-in-the-tooth GPS comes with 2-year-old CDs that cost $200 to update every 2 years...upgrade to DVDs; move heated front seats control to dashboard.
