Ford’s been taking the compact crossover segment by storm ever since their introduction of the Escape. This is a wonderful machine that’s earned consumer praise and critical acclaim across the country—and the 2010 XLT model exemplifies the Big Blue Oval’s commitment to performance, comfort, and convenience.
Fill up at the tank and get ready to ride! Even the far stretches of the greater Seattle area are no barrier for this crossover thanks to its 28 highway / 21 city average MPG fuel economy. The sterling performance goes beyond efficiency, too, because of what this peppy 2.5L four-cylinder engine is capable of. It generates 171 horses and 171-lb.-ft. of torque and easily manages to tow up to 1,500 pounds.
The 2010 Escape XLT is stocked surprisingly well considering you’re not paying for Ford’s highest trim. For a very reasonable price, you’re receiving premium cloth trim on your seats and the entertainment benefit of an AM/FM/satellite radio. Safety and style are present, too; for example, you’re gaining standard front fog lights and 16-inch silver aluminum tire rims. These combat “pea soup” weather conditions and just look plain cool, respectively.
