Pending a complete redesign due in 2013, the Escape returns for 2012 with few changes.
Smooth ride and handling; fuel efficiency across the lineup; competitive pricing; hybrid available; an eco-friendly vehicle inside and out
The 2012 Ford Escape is one of the most affordable and economical small SUVs, and its car-like ride and handling, along with good maneuverability, make it a solid choice for urban drivers. The Escape is a Top Safety Pick award winner from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and has received a 5-star government rating in all crash tests. At the same time, the Hybrid model is one of the lowest-priced hybrids and offers a practical way to "go green." The 2012 Escape Hybrid offers a fuel efficiency of 34 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
