2005 Ford Escape Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 30 reviews
Updated styling helped the 2005 Ford Escape expand its share of the US SUV market. Another key factor was its commitment to fuel efficiency; the regular Escape offered good gas mileage, and a much-touted hybrid model even more so.
Despite its relatively small size, though, it managed to fit five adults in reasonable comfort, and hold 33 cubic feet (with rear seats up) or 63 cubic feet (with rear seats folded) of cargo.
The entry-level engine for the '05 Ford Escape was upgraded at last, to a 2.3 liter, dual overhead cam inline-4 with an output of 133 horsepower and 155 lb.-ft. of torque. Still available as an option was the 3.0 liter, 24-valve Duratec V-6, with its healthy 200 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2005 Escape hybrid featured a 2.3 liter Atkinson-cycle dual overhead cam inline-4 with a 330-volt electric motor.
ABS front-disc brakes gave the Escape great stopping power, and optional front-side airbags added security. Don't be fooled by the outdoorsy style of the '05 Escape; even with the V-6 and all-wheel drive options, it's not really powerful enough to do much off-road adventuring. Still, if you're looking for a compact SUV with a roomy interior and good gas mileage (18 mpg city, 23 mpg highway), the Ford Escape may be a good choice for you.
