Buy One Before The Redesign Which Is Ugly. — My 2011 Ford Escape has a 2.5 4 cyl engine. I like the Suv very much 25MPG in town a lot of pep for a 4 CYL. It steers very well handles great. Mine is red my wife loves this SUV. I had a 2003 Ford Expedition 5.4 V8 and the Escape is more fun to drive.

I Like It More Than I Thought I Would . — I love my 2011 Ford Escape XLT. Its fun to drive. Handles nice. I got what is called sport package I think cuz it has the running boards on the side and a spoiler in the front. Running boards make it so much easier to get in and out. The Sync system is a + as well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good gas mileage

Ford Escape — After extensive use this vehicle has grown on our family. My original assessment was not exactly positive, but after cleaning the intake manifold, throttle body and fuel injectors, the vehicle drives like new. It appears that the dealer just took the vehicle in on trade, and put it right out on the lot. Would probably not buy again, but that is not a reflection of the vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice leather and sound system package

Cons: Interior is very dark.

Good Value, Reliable. — The 4WD version of this Ford Escape handled great in the snow...glad to have it during this past winter of 2013/2014. Seems roomier than other SUVs of this class, and the seats are more comfortable. The ride is smooth for a 4WD SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Liked the looks...beefy, yet very comfortable and "clean" lines.

Cons: The keypad on the doors may be functional, but a little distracting from the looks.

Power Ranked 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium better.
"When both equipped with 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engines, they are very close to same power output. The Outback is lighter, and has a better power to weight ratio."
Handling Ranked 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium better.
"Lower center of gravity, more stable, and the full time Symmetrical AWD makes it feel more responsive to inputs and more sure footed."
Front Seats Ranked 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium better.
" Power, Heated seats in the Outback, with adjustable Lumbar support, and the Escape did not have any of those amenities."
Family Car Ranked 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium better.
"To me personally, I find the Outback to be easier to get in and out of, more dependable, longer lasting, more comfortable, better mpg, better handling, more stable, and easier to maneuver in traffic and parking lots,"
