Escape Hybrid is a full hybrid. It can start off from a complete stop and move to 44 mph on electricity alone, during light acceleration. No fuel is used. And even when the gasoline engine kicks in, it delivers an outstanding 34 city mpg.* Yet the driving experience is virtually identical to that of a conventional SUV. Escape Hybrid provides comfortable seating for up to five, a versatile cargo area and a variety of standard and optional features. You can even add an available Intelligent 4WD System for enhanced traction when the road is covered with gravel or ice, or soaked by rain.
It's in city driving where the Escape Hybrid excels. At speeds up to 44 mph, it can travel in the electric mode using no gasoline and producing virtually zero emissions. When the gas engine does kick in, the transition is seamless. The 2.5L Atkinson-cycle I-4 gasoline engine and electric motor combine to deliver an impressive 34 city mpg.*
Communication is key to a successful partnership, so get ready to be very happy with the Escape. You can bond over things such as music and phone calls with the available SYNC® voice-activated communications and entertainment system.27 Using simple voice commands, you can also tell the available Navigation System exactly where you want to go.

The Escape is a more perfect form of SUV - one that delivers sporty performance and great fuel economy. The available 240-hp V6 engine allows the Escape to tow up to 3,500 pounds.** And if you're looking to go farther on a tank of gas, the standard I-4 engine features an impressive EPA-estimated 28 hwy mpg.* Good form, indeed.
Don't let the "small SUV" category fool you. There's roomy, comfortable seating for five plus a versatile cargo area with 31.4 cu. ft. (30.9 cu. ft. in the Escape Hybrid) of space behind the rear seats. Need more room? Fold the rear seats down for 67.2 cu. ft. (66.4 in the Escape Hybrid) of total storage space. The roof rack can carry up to 100 lbs. of cargo with the available crossbars. Even the smallest storage needs are accommodated, with a three-tier storage system in the center console that has a hidden level big enough for a laptop or a purse.*EPA-estimated 34 city/31hwy/32 combined mpg, FWD. Actual mileage will vary.**When equipped with the available Class II Trailer Tow Package.
