The all-new 2013 Ford Escape, with its new 1.6L EcoBoost four-cylinder, officially gets an EPA fuel-economy rating of 23 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, which is 2 mpg better than the Honda CR-V and 5 mpg better than Toyota RAV4. Although the 2013 Mazda CX-5 with a manual transmission is the most fuel-efficient crossover in the segment, the 2013 Escape is the most fuel-efficient contender with an automatic transmission.
It’s not just the base, 178-hp Escape that gets impressive fuel-mileage — all models in the new lineup get 30 mpg or higher on the highway. Models equipped with the 240-horsepower 2.0L EcoBoost are rated at 22 / 30 mpg city / highway, while models with the 168 horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder get 22 / 31 mpg.
