If you’re considering switching to a more eco-friendly vehicle, you should consider Ford hybrid SUVs. The brand’s lineup of fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles is continuing to grow — and so is the recognition those vehicles are receiving. U.S. News & World Report recently added three Ford SUVs to its list of the 12 Most Fuel-Efficient Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid SUVs for 2021.
The three Ford hybrids that made the cut were the Ford Explorer Hybrid, the Ford Escape Hybrid, and the Ford Escape PHEV.
The 2021 Explorer Hybrid impressed the publication with its strong 3.3-liter V6 engine, which generates 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. Thanks in part to its electric motor, this hybrid SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The 2021 Escape Hybrid also made the list. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine combines with its single electric motor to produce 200 horsepower. The publication estimates that choosing the hybrid version of the 2021 Escape will save you around $300 in gas every year.
Finally, there’s the 2021 Escape PHEV. This highly efficient SUV may not be available at dealerships yet, but that didn’t stop U.S. News & World Report from giving it a big recommendation. With its extensive all-electric range and groundbreaking electric powertrain, the 2021 Escape PHEV is easily the most efficient Ford SUV on the list.
