The 2012 Ford Escape is Illinois’s Premier Midsized SUV

In the world of compact SUVs, there is no better option in Illinois than the 2012 Ford Escape. After major makeovers in 2010 and 2011, the 2012 Ford Escape has perfected many of the new features brought about over the last two years.

Driving Impressions

If you’re looking an automobile with the power of a full-sized SUV but with the fuel economy of a crossover, look no further than the 2012 Ford Escape. Many Illinois drivers feel that the standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine is more than sufficient for their needs; however, if you’re looking for increased torque and towing capacity, Ford also offers a 240 hp, 3.0L V6 engine. Fuel economy is one of the best features with the 2012 Ford Escape. If you decide to stick with the 4-cylinder engine, you’ll be rewarded with 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway. If you’re looking for additional power, the V6 engine gets a respectable 19 mpg city/25 mpg highway. The 2012 Ford Escape comes standard with a 5-speed automatic transmission, but can be upgraded to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Due to its top-of-the-line suspension and the available All-Wheel Drive, the 2012 Ford Escape is perfect for the winter weather experienced in Illinois and other states throughout the Midwest.
