2005 Ford Escapes for sale
Though the Ford Escape is a compact crossover SUV, it has the capability of a larger SUV and can seat five people comfortably, while being easier to maneuver and park. The Ford Escape Hybrid was launched in the United States in 2004 for the 2005 model year. This gasoline-electric powered hybrid was the first hybrid SUV produced for sale and was 70% more fuel-efficient than the regular Ford Escape.
The Ford Escape Hybrid is a full hybrid
Being a full hybrid means that the system can switch automatically between pure electric power, pure gasoline engine power, or a combination of the electric battery and gasoline engine operating together. This ensures maximum efficiency and performance regardless of the speed or loads. The Ford Escape uses regenerative braking, so that when braking or decelerating, the electric drive motor becomes a generator. So, the vehicle’s momentum is converted back to electricity for storage in the batteries.
The 2005 Ford Escape offers more power
The weakness of the previous Ford Escape was addressed, meaning the 127 horsepower 2.0 L four-cylinder engine that was not powerful enough was replaced by a 153 horsepower 2.3 L Duratec 23 with more torque for more power.
The 2005 Ford Escape improves safety
One safety improvement includes Brake Assist, which recognizes an emergency or panic braking situation and applies maximum braking force, faster than any driver could do. Another new innovation is an “intelligent” full-time all-wheel-drive system.
