Exclusive summary about Ford Escape Hybrid by Thomas Jones

The Escape SUV Hybrid is Ford's only hybrid, but truly one of its kind. The Escape Hybrid comes in 4-wheel drive, or full-wheel drive models. It really is a family style hybrid.

You can always have add-ons to the Escape Hybrid through the optional Premium Packages. The 4-wheel drive and Full-wheel drive models differ in highway and city miles per gallons ratings, however.

The Full-wheel drive Hybrid has a fuel economy rating of 34 miles/gallon in the city, and only 30 miles/gallon on the highway. Ford has just one hybrid on the market, but the company might include pick-up trucks and other vehicles in their hybrid.

We hear there may be hybrid compact cars and sedans soon in their hybrid Expedition models. So if you are searching for a hybrid car or SUV, make sure you do not let the Ford Escape hybrid pass you by.
