2006 Ford Escape

The 2006 Ford Escape showed few changes from the 2005 model. The engine is not among the more powerful found in SUVs (2.3-liter, I4, 153-horsepower standard), but gets excellent gas mileage: 24/29 city/highway. For more power, consumers can opt for the more powerful (3.0-liter, V6, 200-horsepower) engine found in the Limited. Mileage can suffer a bit as a result, at 19c/23h.

Chances are that the Escape will not win any awards for power or superior comfort, but it makes for a great car to zip around in, with a more commanding view of the road than that offered by sedans.
