I have a 2008 Ford Escape
with a 2.3L, 4CYL, 5SPD manual transmission.
It is well matched and comfortable towing my Scamp13 Deluxe frontbath. We commonly get 22-24MPG while towing at 58MPH. Sometimes as high as 26MPG. Maybe as low as 20MPG in extreme or windy conditions.
On a 5800 mile trip to Oregon (from Illannoy) we averaged 22.8MPG including the mountains , flats and all kinds of weather.
When not towing it can get 30MPG at 75MPH.
I have had no unscheduled maintenance on this car or it's like predecessor.(a 2006)
If you buy a 2009 or newer, the 4CYL is a 2.5L version of mine with twenty more HP.
The car is comfy and quiet especially with good tires
