Escape Hybrid Combines Fuel Economy with Go-anywhere Capability

Source: Ford Motor Company | Published: Sun Oct 16, 2005

This year, Escape Hybrid builds on its “no compromises” philosophy with a new exterior paint color and a Premium Package bundling many popular options that enhance luxury and utility.

Escape Hybrid combines the fuel economy and emissions benefits of a “full” hybrid with the go-anywhere capability, toughness and spaciousness of the Ford Escape, America ’s favorite small SUV. Escape Hybrid is the first hybrid vehicle to offer four-wheel-drive and towing capability of up to 1,000 pounds when properly equipped.

The Escape Hybrid is a “full” hybrid, meaning it automatically switches between pure electric power, pure gasoline engine power or combined operation to maximize efficiency and performance.

Full hybrids achieve their greatest improvement in fuel economy during stop- and -go driving, when the electric motor is most efficient. In fact, the Escape Hybrid provides approximately 80 percent better fuel economy in city driving than the conventional V-6 Escape.

Its gasoline engine and electric motor work in concert, providing performance similar to that of a V-6 engine. In less demanding situations, the Escape Hybrid can run on its electric motor alone, (at speeds up to 25 mph) its gasoline engine alone or the most efficient combination of the two.

Escape Hybrid can travel more than 400-500 miles in city driving on a single tank of gasoline.

Design and Equipment

The Escape Hybrid looks like the traditional Escape, the best-selling compact sport utility, with a few key differences. The Escape Hybrid features unique badging that uses the Ford road- and -leaf insignia, with standard 16-inch wheels and a discreet battery cooling vent in the driver’s side rear quarter window. Escape Hybrid is available with a special Appearance Package that features body-color door h and les and silver bumper covers, body-side cladding and wheel lip moldings. ...Ford Escape Hybrid: Page 2
