Great Changes
By Rob on


2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


We have a XLT 4WD and what a dramatic difference from the older versions...especially the interior...thank goodness. This new version is so much better in my opinion. Dramatically quieter and more comfortable and the prices are actually lower than last year's model. We have some very steep hills in our area with gravel roads and the all wheel drive handles them with ease without any loss of traction and the transmission does all the braking on the way downhill with little effort saving my brakes the wear and tear. Love this CUV!

Worst Features

A 5 speed transmission would be more in tune with other manufacturers however the 4 speed does the job well for the most part.
