2011 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


This is a great car. I have the XLT with V-6, and I average 28 mpg, but at the same time, when I need pick up or just want to have fun, this is a great vehicle to drive. The interior is comfortable and very quiet. I haven't had any problems with braking distances. Frankly, I'm not sure if the Edmunds reviewers drove the same car, or if someone was just having a bad day when they did the test drive.

Best Features

V-6, smooth ride, quiet interior, lots of options for the price tag

Worst Features

Only one I can think of: needs a telescoping steering wheel.

Just bought 3rd Escape in 8 yrs... 2011 FWD V6XLT winter pkg., sync. etc. Very pleased with it overall but agree with some comments that mileage isn't all it is cracked up to be. Lots of room for giant breed dog, plus some gear...feels a lot more comfortable than past yrs and handles better.
