18. Ford Escape Hybrid
The Ford Escape Hybrid is memorable for being the vehicle that President George Bush stood in front of during his 2004 reelection. Ford made great strides to enter the hybrid race, and the Escape was the perfect mixture of both comfort and gas mileage.
The Escape was already a great compact SUV. With the addition of the hybrid, it soared. The Ford Escape managed to carry Ford through the gas price crisis. You’ll still find Ford Escape Hybrids on the used car market for a reasonable price.
