After six years as the nation's best-selling compact utility (except for a few months this year when RAV4 beat it), the Escape finally gets a new design, inside and out.

There's more chrome and less body-colored molding, and "the industry's first," according to Ford, 100-percent recycled material fabric seating (take that, Toyota greenies). Engines: 153-horsepower 2.3-liter four, 200-horse 3.0-liter V-6 or the four-cylinder/electric hybrid powertrain.
