Its just-right proportions make the five-passenger Ford Escape compact SUV easier to maneuver and park. Inside, it's spacious and can be comfortable even for adults seated in the back. You could load an Escape with a week's worth of groceries. All-wheel drive is available if you need extra capability in the winter. As on other compact SUVs, the Escape's gasoline engines are turbocharged. Ford also offers a conventional hybrid Escape and plug-in hybrid. Both provide effortless acceleration while returning impressive fuel economy, so Ford Escape hybrid drivers can rarely feel like they're sacrificing performance for the sake of mpg.
