What’s not to love about SUVs? They’re powerful, capable, spacious enough for big families, and with strides in modern technology, they’re not the gas-guzzling machines they once were. Still, finding an SUV with good city fuel mileage and the sort of maneuverability required by skinny one-way streets can be tough. Here are the best Ford SUVs for navigating the city.
The Edge is technically a crossover, a segment that’s popular among families thanks to their car-like agility coupled with SUV toughness. The standard turbo engine gets 20 mpg in the city and also features an engine start and stop feature that turns off the engine when idling to preserve fuel. Plus, available Adaptive Steering controls the steering for better cornering and handling.
At 21 mpg in the city with the standard engine or 23 mph if you opt for the available 1.5-liter EcoBoost iVCT, the Escape is hard to beat. It also features Auto Start-Stop technology, in addition to available safety technology that can auto-maneuver the Escape into tight parking spaces. You can also fold the rear seats for up to 68 cubic feet of cargo space.
The best Ford SUVs for city driving offer a combination of clever engineering and smart technology in order to get the most out of your gas budget while still providing all the driving capability and functionality of the SUV class.
