2006 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


We've had our Escape for about a month now and we love it. The 4 cylinder engine is peppy and provides a fun drive but it often needs to down shift when going uphill on the highway. The fuel economy is better than I expected with this being our first SUV (avg. mid 20s). The comfort and ride are amazing and it definitely has a ton of room and cargo area, probably the highest in the class. Can't wait till winter in NH to try out the AWD feature. Highly recommended to anyone in the market.

Best Features

Economical and peppy 4 cylinder. Drives like a car but has all the "good" qualities of SUV's. Perfect size and looks. Flip up glass in trunk.

Worst Features

Some cheap materials on interior here and there.
