Since its introduction in 2001, the Ford Escape has gone through many updates, while still being based on the same platform. This small SUV is very popular due its roomy interior with a nicely sized rear seat and good cargo space. It comes with a standard 2.5 liter four-cylinder with an optional 3.0 liter V6. With standard electronic stability control, the Edge is a great value with a starting price at around $20,000. Since its latest update in 2010, Ford has added Active Park Assist as an available option.
It can detect an open parallel parking spot and automatically steer the car into the space - hands free - while the driver controls the gas and brakes.
