Great Little SUV
By Chris Easton on


2001 Ford Escape XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This SUV is like the "Little Engine That Could." I wanted a small SUV that can tow and the Escape is the perfect choice. It has excellent handling, a nice ride and the V6 has plenty of power. It also gets decent gas mileage and performs well off road. Reliability has been excellent, I just change the oil every 3000 miles and that's it.

Best Features

Lockable 4wd, 3500 LB towing capacity, interior volume and driver leg room (I'm 6'8").

Worst Features

Fold flat front seat for long items, 5 speed auto (instead of 4).
