With rising fuel prices, more and more people are looking for fuel-efficient vehicles. Below are some models that can lessen your trips to the gas station. These fuel-efficient vehicles are available at Kevin’s Royal Automotive. We have locations in Cooperstown, NY, and Owego, NY.
Small SUVs like the Ford Escape are ideal for people looking for fuel-efficient vehicles. In terms of size, this model sits in between the larger Ford Edge and the smaller Ford EcoSport. You may want to consider the Escape because of its comfortable, spacious cabin, advanced tech, and encouraging safety features.
The Escape is powered by a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet torque. This engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all the wheels. A 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain is standard to the Titanium trim and optional for the SE and SEL trims. It has 200 horsepower and is coupled to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The Escape earns a powertrain rating of 22 mpg for city driving and 31 mpg for highway driving. You can take the Ford Escape for a test drive at Kevin’s Royal Automotive with branches in Cooperstown, NY, and Owego, NY.
Many people looking for fuel-efficient vehicles usually ignore pickup trucks because of their reputation for being gas guzzlers. These people are not familiar with the Ford Maverick. Under the hood of the Maverick is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with a hybrid system. The setup produces 191 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. CVT transfers power from the engine to the front wheels. The hybrid system earns an impressive EPA rating of 42 mpg for city driving and 33 mpg for highway driving.
Also available is a model with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque.
