MSN.com does a great job explaining how the new Ford Escape Hybrid makes the most of its combined 155 horsepower. Sift through all the technical jargon though and it's revealed the new car gets about 10 more miles per gallon than the standard Escape. So does that savings equate to the extra $3,500 added to the purchase price? We're just freaked out that there are 250 D-size nickel-metal hydride battery cells stored beneath the cargo floor. Does that mean we can't throw a keg in the back?
