Toddsride 5pts I own the 1.6 Ecoboost Escape. Lots of pep, pulls my 1630 lb. Eagle 175 PF like it wasn't there. Gets 33mpg if driven at 62 and 29mpg if driven at 70. Of course if there is a head wind these numbers change. Transmission does't hunt at all. Love the S (sport) setting of the transmission. No trouble launching the boat or retrieving it.
