Want an environmentally friendly SUV? We’ve got just the ticket—the 2012 Ford Escape Hybrid, recipient of a 4.2 out of 5 average consumer review.



The Big Blue Oval’s engineering prowess is on full display with this vehicle, which offers a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline powerplant that pumps out 153 horses and achieves 136 lb.-ft. of torque. This is complemented by a 94 HP, 330-volt permanent magnet motor in the front-wheel drive setup. However, an available all-wheel variant includes a second electric engine that earmarks additional performance for the rear tires for when extra traction is necessary for challenging conditions.





The beauty of this 2012 Escape is that Ford joins the aforementioned under-the-hood excellence with a continuously variable transmission. The CVT is a type of automatic drivetrain that switches seamlessly across a continuous range of gear ratios (hence the name). This offers greater flexibility in operation through a more constant angular velocity, which in turn provides finer efficiency. This optimization combined with the automobile's hybrid nature affords a magnificent 34 city/31 highway MPG rating in the FWD offering and 30 city/27 highway in the AWD model.
