2009 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Bought the Escape as a daily driver. The AWD was a must for the winters here. Very practical for my wife and I and our 5yr old daughter. Seats are comfortable. The revised V6 is great. Runs strong. Gas mileage hovers in the 23.5 range with 70%/30% mix of rural 2 lane highway/city driving every week. Very nimble to drive. Was plenty comfoirtable for us on a 600 mile trip to the beach.

Best Features

V6 engine, SYNC, cargo area roomy for size of vehicle. Somewhat truck-like styling is way cooler than competitors which look like small station wagons on steroids!

Worst Features

Stretch the wheelbase some for more back seat room. Revise back seats so head rest doesn't have to be removed to fold seats. Some softer touch plastic on interior door panels.
