The Escape is an SUV with roofline taller than a Lincoln town Car or the monsterous Chrysler 300C. Forget about highway economy in an SUV.
It's not your little 4 cyl motor causing terrible highway gas mileage. My 5.7L Corvette V8 got 31MPG with cruise control set to 72 MPH because the coefficient of drag was under 0.30 and the roof could be washed by a pre-teenage girl without standing on tippy toes lol.
