In this episode, we test out the fuel economy in the all-new 2016 Ford Escape. In the hyper-competitive compact SUV segment, the Escape is a key player with its powerful, yet efficient engine choices, ample space and innovative technology.
Our tester was equipped with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin-scroll EcoBoost engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Our test yielded 504 kms on a tank of gas and gave a decent average fuel economy of 10.7L/100 km.
After using up our tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $41.55 at a fuel cost of $0.829/litre.
