0409 Pl+2005 Ford Escape Hybrid+Front Passenger Side View
Ford's timing is impeccable. As the price for gasoline spurted past $2.00 per gallon (and headed for $3.00 in the Golden State), chairman Bill made good on his all but forgotten promise to boost SUV fuel efficiency. The 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid isn't just a bone to tree huggers or an act of contrition for the 550-horsepower Ford GT. It's also the world's first SUV that real folks who tote kids, toys, and the trappings of modern life can use to squeeze 30 or more miles out of each precious gallon of petroleum.
