New for 2012
There are no significant changes for 2012.

Exterior
The Escape Hybrid has a plunging chrome grille that would be equally at home on a Volkswagen Jetta or Passat. A raised hood and high belt line may make this SUV look tougher, but they don't do much for visibility. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 16-inch aluminum wheels
  • Available moonroof
  • Capless refueling nozzle instead of fuel cap


Interior
The Escape Hybrid seats five people in two rows of seats. It has a swing-up hatch, and the rear seats fold in a 60/40 split to increase cargo capacity. A leather-wrapped steering wheel is standard. Interior features include:

  • Standard front dual-zone air conditioning
  • Standard Sync multimedia system
  • Optional leather seats
  • Optional backup camera
  • Optional navigation system with traffic information


Under the Hood
The Escape Hybrid's 153-horsepower gasoline engine uses the Atkinson-cycle combustion process for greater fuel efficiency and is supplemented by a 94-hp electric motor.  Mechanical features include:

  • Standard 153-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 136 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard 94-hp, 330-volt permanent magnet motor
  • Standard continuously variable automatic transmission
  • Front- or four-wheel drive
  • Capable of moving on electric power alone up to 44 mph


Safety
The Escape Hybrid incorporates Roll Stability Control. It is the only system with a sensor that detects the beginning of a rollover and can act to stop it. Other standard safety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system
  • Antilock brakes
  • Integrated blind spot mirrors
