Big truck feel in a small SUV

2009 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


As a loyal Honda owner, I never thought I would buy a Ford until I saw and drove the 2009 Escape. Lots of power, quiet smooth ride, lots of room, good gas mileage (if you don't gun it). Sync is awesome as I have my cell phone & iPod running through the stereo system. Not sure how I lived with out it before I bought this truck. Plenty of room! When I took it for a test drive, the salesman was 6'5" and had a lot of leg & head room while in the back seat. The 6 cylinder can tow 3500 pounds. Bet the CRV or RAV4 can't do that.

Best Features

Acceleration, look, space, gas mileage, Sync, and smooth ride. Built in Sirius radio.

Worst Features

Glove compartment is small.
