Coverted Gas Guzzler

I drove a gas guzzling, smooth riding, SUV AWD for years. A great vehicle when gas prices were reasonable. 13 mpg, $80-100 dollars a fillup almost every week adds up. The Escape Hybrid still has 4x4 capabilities. Nothing like the gas guzzler, but surprisingly it holds it own on unplowed roads. It was a completely new learning experience to drive. I got close to 30mpg driving immediately after my purchase, and by gently accelerating to speed, over 30 mpg was achieved. For the everyday drives or long drives, it really is a great vehicle. It is peppy with the electric and gasoline motor combination.

Everything (Almost) I Wanted It To Be

Before purchasing this vehicle, I read up on the reviews. I wanted to know what everyone had to say because, to me, it seemed to be everything I was looking for in a vehicle (fuel efficiency, 4WD, storage space, mid-size). I read complaints about the power, more than anything else. It is true the Escape Hybrid does not have the power you'd find in other SUV's comparable in size, it has a 4-cylinder engine. Coming from owing a 4-cly. before, I got exactly what I expected out of an engine of a similar size. I'm not looking to win a race in this car. The hybrid engine works at lower speeds (city driving/stop-and-go) but even when the gas engine is on, I still get 27+ mpg and that's great for a vehicle of this size. I'm happy with this car.

My NYC Yellow Taxi

There is a reason that more than half of the 13,000 Yellow Taxi vehicles in Manhattan were Ford Escape Hybrids. After 2012, Ford stopped making the Escape Hybrid, but before that it was the vehicle of choice because of its durability and great gas mileage. Compared to the Crown Victoria's 12-16 MPG, the Escape would get 27-33 MPG on the toughest city streets in the nation. The gasoline engine would turn on and off as needed to make electricity for the electric drive motor and all the electrical requirements such as A/C, lighting, etc. The annual fuel savings was nearly $10,000 per year between 2 daily drivers operating 20-22 hours a day. Escapes just run and run. The last one I drove had over 400,000 miles on it before it's final retirement. That's on brutal city streets in merciless traffic and congestion. Also had nimble handling and steering. High clearance meant good road view and also very good in snow. Don't hesitate, just buy one... you won't be disappointed. Tell them Dan said so.
