Holly Little 5pts I purchased the first 2013 Escape SE 4 wheel drive that the local Ford dealer got in and drove it off the show room floor on 8/9/2012. I am getting 22 to23 MPG on the rural roads here on the coast of Maine with the 2.0 L ecoboost engine. The ride is solid but smoother than I expected with a SUV and the 2.0 L ecoboost engine has amazing get up and go. We hope to take a trip to check out the highway milage soon. So far I love everything about the Escape and am hoping it does well in the Maine winters.
