With the costs of fuel constantly on the rise, it's good to have a vehicle that's efficient. The new Ford Escape is available at Hamilton Ford in Clovis, NM. It's a highly sought-after compact SUV that's powered by EcoBoost engines. These engines are designed to maximize fuel economy without sacrificing power.

There are three different engine options available. The first is a 2.5-liter inline-four engine. It'll give you as much as 165 horsepower and 170 pound-foot of torque for hauling. The next is a 1.5-liter engine. Its capable of giving you 177 pound-foot of torque and 179 horsepower. Finally, there's the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. It's a 245-horsepower engine with a torque rating of 275 pound-foot.

The unique thing about EcoBoost engines is that they have Auto Start-Stop technology. This feature can benefit you when you're stuck in traffic. When you're stopped, the engine cuts off to save fuel. However, the radio and climate control systems stay on. When traffic starts moving again, the engine will kick back on with a press of the acceleration pedal.
