Model Highlights

Ford offers two engines on the 2007 Escape: a 153-horsepower, 2.3L "Duractec 23" four-cylinder engine and a 200-horsepower, 3.0L "Duratec 30" V6. The four-cylinder is standard on the base XLS and mid-level XLT models and can be matched with either a five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic, while the 3.0L V6 is standard on the XLT Sport and Limited models and comes only with the automatic.

All Escapes, including the Hybrid, are available with either front-wheel drive or an "Intelligent" all-wheel-drive system that's biased toward the front wheels during most driving.

XLS models come simply equipped, with standard features including power windows and locks, remote entry, a CD player, and air conditioning. XLT models add larger, 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, a roof rack, cruise control, a six-disc in-dash CD changer, and a power driver's seat, among other features. The XLT Sport brings a different look with black fascias and cladding and bright-machined wheels, plus the keypad entry system. The Limited adds automatic headlamps, a message center with compass, and leather upholstery.

The Escape Hybrid comes with an advanced hybrid system, which pairs an eco-tuned, 133-horsepower, 2.3L four-cylinder gasoline engine with a 70-kW electric motor system. Together, they produce 155 horsepower, and performance that's comparable to the V6 Escape with 80-percent better fuel economy than the V6 model. It's a "full" hybrid system, meaning that the Escape Hybrid can run at low speeds on electric power only with the engine off to maximize fuel economy. The engine automatically restarts as needed and power is delivered through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Inside, the Hybrid adds an economy gauge that shows the level of charge and assist for the system, and there's also an on-screen energy flow monitor and trip computer that's included with the optional navigation system.

The Escape Hybrid gets an EPA fuel economy rating of 36 city, 31 highway, and it may be eligible for federal tax incentives that apply to advanced-technology vehicles.

Standout options on the Escape include a navigation system, an Audiophile six-disc CD changer system with MP3 compatibility, a trailer-towing package for up to 3,500 pounds, a cargo package with lockable hidden storage, big 17-inch chrome-clad wheels, and a luxury comfort package that includes heated front seats, dual automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, and a reverse sensing system. A 110-volt AC outlet is an option on Hybrids.

Anti-lock brakes are standard on all Escapes, along with front-seat side air bags, and the Safety Canopy side-curtain airbag system is available.


Model News

Changes for Ford's small utility are relatively minor this year as the 2008 Escape is expected to receive a restyled interior and exterior and a smoother hybrid system. New for 2007 are the XLT Sport package that gives the Escape a monochromatic look with painted body-color bodyside cladding, bumpers, and wheel lip moldings. A Silver Appearance Package brings a silver metallic tone to those same items. Several new colors join the palette for 2007: Vista Blue Clearcoat Metallic, Dune Pearl, and Tungsten Grey Clearcoat Metallic, along with Vista Blue Clearcoat Metallic on the Hybrid. Also, Ford's unique keypad entry system is now standard on some models.

The Hybrid model has several new packages that are composed of a number of popular options.


Value Writeup

The Escape, which brings the upright, boxier appearance of a traditional SUV to the small utility segment, has a surprising amount of passenger and cargo space inside for its compact dimensions. And with carlike underpinnings, the Escape is graced with a smooth ride and good handling. The price of entry is low for the four-cylinder, starting at only $18,580, while V6 offers much peppier performance and the Hybrid model boasts an enviable 36-mpg estimate.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2005-2008 Ford Escape hybrid electric vehicles manufactured October 13, 2003, to June 20, 2008, and 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner hybrid electric vehicles manufactured June 10, 2005, to June 20, 2008. The coolant pump for the hybrid system may fail resulting in the hybrid electronics overheating.

Consequence
If the hybrid electronics system overheats, it may shut down the powertrain, resulting in a stall-like condition, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the original Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump with an improved brushless pump, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on October 27, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 14S19.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
