Ford Escape, The Smart Choice. Opinions Are In! It's no big surprise that I'm an Escape fan. Admittedly, my first few months with my Escape were a challenge. I doubted whether it was the best of choices, solely based on the fact that I had again entered into debt. Nevertheless, it became clear a year ago that the Escape was worth ever penny I spent and still I am impressed. Sometimes to the point of overjoy and sometimes to the point of tears.
The Escape provides sure footed traction in most conditions that other vehicles would fear to tread. Rounding a curve today at 70 MPH the Escape provided me with the feedback I needed to maintain control More....
Escape Wins Again! Ford Takes Best Small SUV Award Add this one to the growing list of wins for Ford's versatile 4X4. The Smartmoney is on Escape! The consumer magazine recently named Escape the best of the best in their small SUV comparison test!
Ford happens to strike just the right balance with its popular Escape. It has full-time four-wheel drive (power is directed to the front wheels under most conditions, shifting to all four wheels only when the system detects slippage). But unlike the other four SUVs reviewed, it offers decent towing capacity (up to 3,500 pounds) and a four-wheel-drive lock mode, ideal for mud or ice. More....

Miles Per Tank Of Gas ???
I can get from 250 to about 300 miles depending on driving conditions with the V6. That is, if I fill up the whole tank and I don't have a hole in it. With these things, the weight of your foot and driving style seems to make a big difference. One side note...
